"Online research says no overnight here"

> Not only does Walmart not allow overnight vehicle parking, which is clearly marked throughout the parking lot, the city of Durango also bans camping in any “public way, public park, public place or public building.” Feb 2018,... Read more

"Cheap and near San Francisco, that is all"

This is very much not a destination, not pretty, and not directly surrounded by anything desirable. (Antioch is a dump, for now. The new BART line may clean it up.) But, it is probably the cheapest way to park near San Francisco / East Bay. The... Read more

"Lush forest that's great for tents, less so for big rigs"

Tinkham Road goes through a very lush, densely forested area. There is practically no solar charging here. Young branches reach in on the roads, we couldn't even drive the access road without hanging branches brushing our roof. The road has... Read more

"Would recommend car camping only, as of July 2017"

We scouted this at the end of June 2017 in the hopes of finding a nice spot. The "easy route in" from east end of Flagstaff Rd / FR-30100 looks like it's gone. At the GPS location for where the turn should be, there is no intersection, most of... Read more

"Small sites and narrow roads"

The only sites our 38' class A would have been comfortable in were the $20/night "double sites" (what everyone else calls pullthroughs), and $20 for no hookups is just silly. The roads were all made very narrow by young trees with branches... Read more
