. We used this site last year on our way across the northern states to CO. 6 days of driving and we stayed 4 nights for $5 or less each night. We were in a 2 man tent, but each spot we stayed at had bathrooms water and electric available. Two even had showers. We were the only tenters in each campground. We plan on using this site again on our way to SD next month.
X2 on the " freecampgrounds.com ". Checked out their web site and it looks Ike a real good source. Lists free, or nearly free, places to stay alphabetically by city in each state. I've been through Amarillo "a million" times and never knew there was a welcome center to park at on I-40 with 24 hr security,dump station, and "clean" rest rooms right across the street from the Flying J.
Also lots of city parks (mostly in smaller towns) that have RV parking, often with elec. water and dump station. The one in Balinger Texas we have stayed at is like that, is $5 per night on the honor system. Drop your money in the box when you leave. Gotta love it.
We stay in CGs when we get to our destination. But a quick, easy, safe place to over night while in transit is great. We've done Wallydocking and truck stops and CGs while in transit too, they all have their pros and cons.
