We prefer wild places where we are the only RV for miles. Not always possible of course and there are even Home Depot parking lots that have infinitely more charm than many commercial RV parks, but we try
has a few examples
One of my favourites was purely accidental. Driving in very thick fog up out of Seydisfjordur, I finally chickened out and pulled off the road at the only flat spot I could find. Next morning the sun was shining and this was the view.
One important criteria for the perfect camping spot is that it is free. This one fits the bill perfectly
Lost Lake Campground Colorado. Stayed a week because it too was free (but only because I helped the manager get his solar pump system working)
Probably illegal (although we did ask a local and he said no problem) but we stopped for late coffee break next to an abandoned Indian crafts store. Liked the view so much we stayed the night.
This one wasn't free but can't have everything. People like to pretend this is the genuine Sahara Desert, but in fact it is a remnant now separated from the Sahara - but close enough.
Ruby Gap in Central Australia. Also not free. $6 per night.
Pretty rare to camp somewhere that has 360 degree view of nothingness, but this overnighting spot in a layby in Australia's Gulf country is one such.
The other was camping in the middle of the largest salt lake in the world.
Not easy to get right in the middle of about 150 hot air balloons, but by overnighting in the middle of the launch area, we had a front-row view..
Cost of the seat - zero dollars and zero cents. Perfect!
