Boondocking and dry camping inspiration, locations, tips, tricks. 

I’m on my last day boondocking at Roadrunner BLM south of Quartzsite, Arizona. I’ve been here for ten days. This is by far the longest I’ve gone in one place with no hookups.

After leaving Tucson we made our way to the Quartzsite, Arizona area. There is an abundance of public land around the area. Each year thousands of RVers flock to this area for the perfect weather and free (or nearly free) camping.

After two nights at Hackle Road BLM near Soloman, AZ we pulled out for Tucson. I had researched some BLM land just southwest of Tucson called Snyder Hill. It’s basically a large triangle of land between some busy roads where you can dry camp for up to 14 days.

I’m sitting in the middle of the desert in Arizona. I can see a few other rigs, maybe four, in the distance. It’s so quiet here.

I’ve talked about Harvest Hosts before and I absolutely love the program. You pay a annual membership fee which allows you to overnight in a self contained RV on the property of a host.

One of the things I’m learning about while boondocking is how to preserve water. I thought I’d offer up some things that have helped me stretch that precious commodity while still feeling clean and comfortable.

One of my boondocking bucket list destinations was the overlook into Badlands National Park near Wall, South Dakota.

We arrived at the Nelson Creek Recreation area of Fort Peck Lake late in the afternoon on Sunday. I checked this place out thoroughly I thought it a safe first place to try my hand at boondocking. From all my research the roads leading into the dispersed camping here were roomy and easy for any size rig to navigate.
