“What an interesting place ! ”

Reviewed Apr 04, 2016

Overall Rating

This may be the most unusual place I've ever camped. Totally primitive sites, no water, sewer or electric hook ups. Personally, I loved it and would have stayed a day or two longer if I could have. I can understand how it wouldn't appeal to a lot of people, but once you talk to locals and understand the concept, and the fact that it ... more

“Not for Everyone”

Reviewed Mar 20, 2016

Overall Rating

I had heard this was a really interesting place from several sources on the road, and coming up from Baja is was the perfect stop. And stop was all I did. This is an extreme hippy/ alternate life style, and for me not a good vibe. (Silver City, NM is a good hippy vibe). Everything is rundown, slapped together, and edgy. Some will ... more

“Wonderful art and lots of trash!”

Reviewed Jan 01, 2015

Overall Rating

Staying at the last free place on earth apparently means you don't have any responsiblity to properly dispose of your trash. The Slabs give you an opportunity to overdose on folk art when you look beyond the squalor. It's a real mixed bag with everything from high end RVs housing winter visitors to other vehicles of all ages and types ... more

“Lots of Stray Dogs”

Reviewed Apr 02, 2013

Overall Rating

Slab City is 600+ acres owned by the state of California and is a designated "free place" where people can squat or camp. It attracts a variety of people, snowbirds, artists, homeless and runaways. We recently went because we had seen some extremely colorful photographs and wanted to check it out for ourselves. There are no se... more
