I also use google earth when going to a new location, especially if I can not locate info about ins/outs, roads, etc....

Have not had a problem after doing homework.

Good Luck.

Pay to look at a book on free camping to see if you would like to purchase the book.

Then pay for the book and shipping and handling.

Upon arrival at the stated free camping site, you must first pay and get a window sticker that confirms this is the correct and approved free camping site.

Keep in ming of course, this is all beneficial to you as you enjoy your free camping site.

I think what a lot of new rvers looking into boondocking is where can't you park? I think that also depends on what size your rv is. I have parked at the edge of towns. or in industrial area. of course this is for just over night. But can you park off road places? I have a small rv so it is easy for me. I never get out of my mh after dark, or answer the the door.

this free website has walmart info as well as other info. it states which walmarts you can and cannot park overnight in. this website is updated continuously by the rv users. i send my updates to them by email, as there is no link on the website at this time.
some walmarts welcome rv'ers while due to experience or local ordinances other do not. most have a 24 hour security patrol. i always ask security or store management if it ok to park there overnight. i always thank the store manager for their hospitality before leaving.
the wally world in n. bakersfield (rosedale) imho is an exceptionally good place to park with 24 hour security. we were there a week ago. the manager there told me that he has no problem with rv's parking for a week or longer as long as they don't ''set up a campsite''. he stated that many leave their rv at wally world and explore the area in their toad and that was fine with him. the website says that someone was denied parking there in april, but others have parked there since.
this wally world is not a 24 hour ''super center'' and has limited groceries. they have a full service mcdonalds that opens for breakfast at 0700.
