Boondocking for your first time in your RV is kinda like jumping into the deep end of the swimming pool to see if you can swim. The suggestions to try a few nights totally unhooked in your yard is a great idea. If you do this, don't make comprimises and cheat. Stay with it. You'll soon learn what you need to do.

I would like to suggest not just private but also State/National parks tend to have hook ups as well. Most you can even reserve ahead of time online so you don't have to worry about getting there and being out of luck. The most I have payed to date is $24 a night and that was in CO.

I have yet to stay at a private park because of cost, being too close to my "neighbors" and most private parks look like big parking lots. There are plenty of laundromats and wireless places in towns and waking up to a quite space surrounded by nature and not RV's just can't be beat. That and having shore power makes things a lot easier. Especially if you are still new to the RV unit you are camping in.

Thanks so much for all of your advice. Because it is Memorial Day weekend, I decided to forego Moab for somewhere closer. I'm going to try Pagosa Springs/Durango area first. All of the State parks and even the private parks were already full in Moab. Since I have no idea how long my water/tanks, etc will last just yet, I thought it more prudent to go somewhere where I know that I'll be able to park, hook up or not, but refill with water, etc. I'll let you know how it goes. :-)

What hookups do they have at Dead horse? One thing to consider is temps. We go early March and it is cool at night then, but I would imagine the weather gets pretty warm in the summer.
