Looking for secluded, scenic RV pad to rent

My husband & I are currently volunteering for BLM and have an awesome site outside of Roseburg, OR. We have full hookups and no one else camping near us for acres... a huge change from typical RV parks where we stay the rest of the year and neighbors are 10 feet away.

I love the open space, and would love to know where there are other spots like this, perhaps on private property and available for rent for periods of 30-90 days (too long to just boondock). We have a 43 ft coach so it needs to be accessible, yet secluded. All suggestions appreciated!!!

Hi itgeekgal,
What part of the country and what time of the year?

Anywhere beautiful is fine. We're full timers who travel the entire country, we've been in gorgeous places from Oregon to Virginia but generally stay in regular RV parks and would live to find some remote destinations where there's more nature than concrete.

As full-timers, even though we have a 40' motorhome, our first choice is always a public park - national park, national forest, Corps of Engineers, country and city parks. They all have a more 'natural' environment. We love the west and there is so much BLM and forest service land. Hope you find your little paradise. We're with you!

itgeelgal,
What type of internet provider do you have in your MOHO? An IT GEEK fulltime RVer must have to have a great bandwidth to remote log in to keep all those servers up. I've been looking into a little part time consulting when I retire next yr. & being able to log on from out in the middle of nowhere would be sweet. Art.

Check out the National Forest Campground Directory.
Campground Directory and National Forest Campgrounds

If you can't find sufficient seclusion there, most national forests permit (or even encourage) dispersed camping anyplace except where specifically prohibited.

We have Verizon data access, and it has worked great everywhere we've been to date except West Virginia and the park we stayed at there had free wifi so all was good.

Thanks for the advice to date, I am really hoping to find locations with sewer/water so we don't have to move the motorhome for a 30-60 day stay vs. boondocking. I hope that's not just a pipe dream....

Hi itgeekgal,
I'm going to ask you to consider something that on the surface may not seem to meet your requirements. However, if you read this post, go to the web site and put the information together, I think you'll find a diamond in the rough. Consider Hidden Mountain Resort (HMR) in Sevierville, Tennessee. Go to 2605 and take a look. The sites are 55X85. At least one site has a coach house available to guests. HMR does no advertising. For you, this is important. There is usually nobody here. This is an ownership resort and some owners rent. You are one mile from the Parkway. The Parkway has all the entertainment the Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area has to offer. The resort is so very quiet. There is no noise from the entertainment area. Smoky Mountain National Park is about 15 miles away.

So there you have it. Peace and quiet for you. Full hookup site with large concrete pads. Lovely landscaping. WIFI that is outstanding. Cable TV. More things to do than you can actually do if you stayed several years.
