"Overpriced and no staff available to unlock"

Great location for a dump station - it's right off the highway. We went in to pay and were informed the dump fee was $13 and because it was very busy (it was) a staff member was not immediately available to unlock the dump station. We asked if we... Read more

"Quiet National Forest camping near Tonasket"

There is one campsite that can accommodate an RV here and it has a picnic table and a fire pit. There are two other picnic tables and fire rings but cars or RVs would have to park around the perimeter of the parking lot. We stayed for 5 nights... Read more

"Rough road, not very clean"

As others have noted, the road in is rough. It took us 30 minutes to drive 1.5 miles to our campsite. Originally, we were camped at 32.515204, -110.952107. After a couple nights, a man towing a horse trailer told a nearby camper that we were too... Read more

"Crowded with spotty Verizon service"

We paid $43.50 for a 14 day stay at Imperial Dam LTVA online, so not to have to deal with cash in person. When we arrived, the camp host told us that we would need to print out the pass because they didn't have a way of scanning the QR code from... Read more

Since we had to hitch up to dump and with a week to go until internet was installed – we realized that we could probably find a place to camp near our property with better...

New Years in the Desert – Aluminarium

I honestly thought I did this post already. We’ve been busy working and socializing and working and socializing, so the blog ball dropped shortly after the one in Times Squ...

Tallahassee Camping – Aluminarium

We spent the past week camping in Tallahassee at Coe Landing Campground. For three out of the seven nights, we were the only ones here. There aren’t any walking trails,...

Labor Day is an extra special day for full-time RVers because it’s signifies the end of packed campgrounds and the beginning of a more peaceful camping. We spent our hol...

Cheboygan State Park – Aluminarium

Cheboygan State Park is one of my favorite parks we’ve stayed at in Michigan next to the Rivermouth Campground at Tahquamenon Falls State Park. In addition to having a n...

Camping in Sault Sainte Marie – Aluminarium

We’ve spent the past 2 weeks camping at Aune-Osborn Campground in Sault Sainte Marie, MI. We weren’t lucky enough to get a waterfront site, but we did manage to get 1 s...

Straits State Park – Aluminarium

Straits State Park has been our 5th and favorite Michigan State Park so far. The campground is located just north of the Mackinac Bridge which connects the Upper and Lower...

Silver Lake State Park – Aluminarium

Our spot this week looks so idyllic in this photo. Well, photos can be misleading. Silver Lake State Park in Mears Michigan is not very peaceful. The state park has 450-...

Camping Near Chicago – Aluminarium

We spent this past week in Chicago and left the Airstream at Woodland Village Mobile Home & RV Park in Portage, IN. There are more mobile homes than RV’s here, but at least...

Goose Island State Park – Aluminarium

When we saw this sunrise our first morning here, I knew Goose Island State Park was going to be a therapeutic to spend the week. Waterfront sites are worth the extra $4...

Boca Chica Bust – Aluminarium

Yesterday, we drove to the tip of Texas in hopes of doing some beach camping. As we pulled into Boca Chica State Park I checked the tide tables. Years ago, we camped on the...

Quinault Beach Resort & Casino – Aluminarium

I wasn’t looking forward to our spot this week because it’s at a casino. Usually casino camping is in a parking lot, under bright lights, and isn’t very scenic. Most of the...

Square Dance Center & Campground – Aluminarium

A few factors drew us to the Square Dance Center & Campground in Lolo, Montana. We could have camped nearby for half the price, but wouldn’t have had hookups and at the tim...

Crazy Jug & Monument Point – Aluminarium

There are so many lookouts and potential places to boondock at the North Rim, I thought it would be a good idea to ask a ranger for a recommendation. The ranger said the ro...

Fire Point – Aluminarium

Each day at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon we went on long drives down dirt roads in hopes of finding a magical boondocking spot. How’s this look? Forest Service Road...
