Dry Camping

Dry Camping , or Boondocking is an excellent way to keep costs down while traveling. We have always over-nighted during our travels to and from our main destinations.

Last fall during our annual visit to the Hershey RV show we met a couple that told us they had not been able to overnight at several Walmarts.

We Googled this and discovered that almost 20% of the Walmarts in the US prohibit overnight camping. We also found that, for a variety of reasons, many communities are banning overnight camping in a store’s parking lot. Additionally, a few inconsiderate campers are driving some businesses to banning over-nighting as well.

With that in mind it would be prudent to be sure the location that you have selected will allow you to overnight. The last thing you want is to be rousted from sleep by someone knocking on the door to your rig telling you to move. An even more unpleasant scenario would be finding a citation tucked under your wiper blade in the morning!
