Off-season RVing in New England

Whenever I see some forum member announce that its wrong to stay in a Wall-Mart parking lot, I would like to ask them what they would do if they were full-time RVers in New England in the off season (before Memorial Day and after Labor Day). Since almost all campgrounds are closed at this time of year, where do people stay? We always end up at Wall-Mart or Sam's Club after making several calls to local campgrounds. Does anyone know of any good boondocking spots in New England when the campgrounds are no longer an option? Thanks in advance.

We've been to Charlestown Breachway before & after their season. Very peaceful!

Haven't been there yet, but hear that the casinos are very RV friendly.

I cannot fathom someone "announcing" that it is wrong to stay at a WalMart. It is simply their own feelings they are passing on as if it was Bible truth. Most of us do stay at WalMart from time to time, and there is NOTHING wrong with that (provided we do it tastefully and don't abuse what we use). I wouldn't let the nay-sayer's bother me about WM.

You would be surprised at the number of times forum members pipe in to express their disapproval of staying overnight at a Wall-mart. It doesn't bother us. As full-timers, we stay at all kinds of places. However, my real point was that in some places, Wall-Mart is the only show in town. We're grateful they let us stay there. It may have something to do with the fact that we invariably spend several dollars shopping there every time we spend the night.

New England in the fall, it is the "leaf peeper" season and alot of the campground are open and busy. Labor. The Memorial Day to Labor Day camping season is for those who still have children at home and in stone and brick schools.

Well I camped out of season (late October) in New England last year and while it wasn't easy it is possible. The camp guides you get at the state welcome centers give you each campgrounds season. Some are open all year long but not many. You can find some along the Maine coast. But you must call ahead to confirm because there are no second choices in most areas.
