Came across this site while getting all my ducks in a row for hitting the road permanently.  Most are no frills sites...but if you are "frugal" like me...check it out!

Great resource.

Another idea:  If you're a registered adult leader with th Boy Scouts most Scout camps will let you pitch a tent for next to nothing and there are hundreds of them around the country. The same is probably true for most other youth organizations that have similar camps around the country (Girl Scouts, 4H, religious groups, etc.)

On a trip to KY/TN we called ahead and found a local Scout camp that let us pitch tents in an unused area while their big summer camp was in session. It would have been free but we opted to eat with the rest of their residents so we spent $5 per person. Great fried chicken dinner.

This is a very useful information for free camping in any where. I think this is the best idea for camping lovers, you can go where you want without any expenses for camp sites.

Mostly people like to inexpensive riding due to current financial situations. People reduce their activity of camping, enjoyment and organizing parties at different attractive spot.
In this way this post play important role and provide great ideas to keep their journey with little bit financial circuits.

The plan is to find an RV in the 26-28' range and hitch up a trailer with the NH and hopefully a dual-sport.  Turned 62 last week...makes me eligible for a free National Parks pass...and my social security kicks in in 214 days.  Should be enough for a RV payment and a bit for a nest egg.  In the meantime I keep working at my "paid-much-less-than-I'm-worth" full time job...salting 20% into a 401k.

Will definitely start a thread when I find my "new home"....lol.

An update on this comment.

I'm in the process of planning a trip for our BS troop to Washington DC this summer. I was looking for places to stay on the way out; while out there and on the way back.

I found 2 Scout camps where we could stay enroute and on our return. We won't even have to pitch our own tents as they're letting our group of 20 stay in their pre-erected tents. Cost is $25 each for the whole group.

While in DC I found a Scout camp within 20 miles of the city. Cost for our group will be around $50/night...a steal in comparison to anything else that close.

Let me know if you get down this way Baja.  My neighbor manages BSA Camp Baker which is located in Chesapeake VA along the intercoastal.  Could probably get your group a tour of an aircraft carrier (if we are in port and depending on size of your group).

That's a great offer! It might be a little far afield for this trip, but I'll bring it up at our next planning meeting.
