Safe, well lit, quiet and convenient. As others stated, well patrolled and unfortunately ending Jan 1st of 2019.You're literally in the middle of a large parking lot surrounded by all the shops you’d need as well as a great bike path along the river. Trains run all night in the distance which for a light sleeper like me, I needed earpl... more

“Solid free overnight parking in town”

Reviewed Sep 13, 2018

Overall Rating

It’s free and conveniently located.

Security will come and check you in and give you a paper to keep in your window. They patrol continuously which adds an element of extra safety. There is a walking path on the edge of the parking lot along the river that seems to get good use.

“Amazing place!”

Reviewed Aug 17, 2018

Overall Rating

This place is the best. Quiet, near nice river, just a few RVs. Arrived at 11pm, instantly met security guys and they were nice and friendly, asked me to fill some paper and that’s it. Limit is 2 nights. This is the best free spot I’ve ever visited.

“All night train, bums, and only allows RV’s ”

Reviewed Aug 04, 2018

Overall Rating

Positives: free (no catch), on the river, no reservation needed, in town

Negatives: a train comes every 15 min all night. You can hear security asking people to leave in the middle of the night (They require a self contained bathroom)

We decided to hit this spot after reading a couple reviews. I am happy to say it is even better than we expected. We pulled into the parking lot of Valley River and the security truck met us and directed us to the area for RVs. You need to check in with security, but they were very friendly and offered us some info on the area. Securit... more
