July 3rd, 2019 Wolfe Point Campground

National Park Campground with decent sites. arrived with no reservation and didn't have an issue getting a spot. Awesome new mountain bike trail near the camp called Goose River trail, hard technical climb, but really unique. showers are warm enough. campsites have good fire pits.

July 2nd, 2019 Irving Nature Park

Parking lot outside of locked gate to a scenic park (worth a visit when open). came in late and found multiple other campers and cars parked there overnight. stayed one night with no issue. bathrooms are inside the locked area and too far to access at night so really no bathrooms. really cool lot right off the beach and pretty quiet. there are two lots outside the gate, we stayed at the one to the east a bit down from the gate with no issue.

July 25th, 2018 Tunnel Mountain RV Park II

Went here without reservation after being told Tunnel Mountain RV park I was full. They had a electric hookup spot, which we didnt need for $36 and it was pretty much a paved spot with a table, but was all we needed for one night. Had showers and good bathrooms. Next night we stayed at a "tent site" but was very small shared spot which had electric and water hookups, even though they said it didnt. Site was decent and was a short bike ride into town. Really enjoyed the location even though the site was not the best we had stayed at.

July 24th, 2018 Cal Cheak Fps

Really cool wooded area. Went without a reservation during July and arrived around noon with no issues finding a spot. It definitely filled up by the end of the night though. Pit toilets, fire pits, no showers. Really cool bridge and walk by a river nearby. Self registration for $13 a night.

July 22nd, 2018 Walmart

Lots of other RVs/Vans parked on the street near here. No one seems to park in the walmart lot. Stayed one night and it seems fine. No issues. Walmart has Mcdonalds in it also.

July 21st, 2018 Martin Luther King Jr Way, north of E Yesler Way

Lots of other RV/Vans parked on the side of the street there. Quite area except for the road. Stayed there one night with no issues.

July 20th, 2018 Margaret McKenny Campground

Got there late without a reservation and found it be be very full. However they have horse only sites that open up after 7pm on Friday so we were able to get one of the first come first serve sites. $13 a night, self registration. Sites were really nice, pit toilets, fire pits, no showers. No water anywhere either. Good bike trails nearby.

July 19th, 2018 Roadside Parking

Stayed overnight here in a van. Quite street with public park and bathrooms nearby. Stayed low key for one night with no issues and left early. Did not see any signs about parking or camping prohibited. Walking distance to public beach access.

July 18th, 2018 Bruneau Dunes State Park

Reserved ahead of time. There are not many sport here. Facilities are nice. Decent showers and bathroom. Really awesome sunsets and really scenic. Quite and Calm.

February 17th, 2018 Public Beach Access

After doing the bioluminescent kayaking we were looking for a place to camp overnight in our van before catching the ferry in the morning. We found this spot, which is a public beach access spot with parking area and it looked like a really decent place to stay. We spoke with a "glamping" place that was being constructed next to it and they told us it was definitely ok to stay there. They also offered to let us use their restroom/shower if needed (although we didn't use them and cant comment on them) and had a really friendly security guard check in with us.

Keep in mind the tide however. We woke up with the water very close to our van. Do not park on the beach. Stay in the parking area.

February 16th, 2018 Camping in Pochote

Very large formal campsite. Head past all the spots to speak with the owners at the buildings past the spots. Has water/showers/toilets and the water was the warmest we had seen in Costa Rica camping. They had to turn the water on as we were the only ones in the campsite when we got there, but they were happy to do it. Water seemed very clear, almost smelled treated. Owner said it was potable... but not 100% sure on that.

Really awesome location overlooking the beach. Great place to walk on the beach, swim, or hangout. Had electricity throughout the campsite. Also has a pizza delivery guy who you can call and will deliver to the campsite. We ordered it (had the owner order it for us) and it actually was really good.

We were in a van, but they had covered areas with tables which would work great for tents. There is a really small convenience store about a mile away also that has basic supplies.

February 12th, 2018 Posada Rio Celeste

So we tried to make it here... we made a wrong turn and went too far past it which resulted in us getting stuck on the mud farther down the road (spent the night on the road in the van). Luckily we were helped out by a very nice family there who had chains for our tires and we cannot thank them enough.

If you are looking for this place be very careful about going onto any roads that appear to be downhill and muddy. Do not go too much farther down the road then this site or Rio Celeste entrance.

February 12th, 2018 Public Beach Parking Lot

We wanted to spend a day biking in Las Catalinas, but were unable to find a close spot to camp. We spoke with the security of the resort and they would not let us stay in our van in their public lot. We also spoke with a guy who was taking money to watch the cars at the public beach parking lot and he suggested to not stay overnight there, although legal and allowed, he warned of robberies... which we doubted. We ended up parking on the road about 100 feet south of the public beach parking lot and it worked out fine. Contruction early woke us up, but nobody bothered us there. Las Catalinas has public outdoor showers by the beach and public restrooms. Pura Vida Ride bike shop was really helpful too, would suggest stopping by for bike rentals or whatever you need. Mountain biking in the area was decent also, but would suggest heading south on the trail first.

February 11th, 2018 Therme los Laureles

Pay for the camping at the entrance to the hot springs area. Good flat area for camping with showers, toilets, and electrical hook up. Also had large sinks to wash your stuff. Got a little busier later, but not bad. Defiantly a drive into town, but there is so much to do in the area.

February 10th, 2018 SelvaWhiteWater

---SIDE NOTE: This does not appear to be a campsite on first glance. It is the last house on the road, before the river. The host/owner came out to greet us because we drove in very late. I would suggest knocking on the door if he is not outside. It defiantly is a campsite.

Host was very nice, only spoke Spanish, however we were able to communicate enough with him to stay for $5 a night (we are English speaking). We were in a campervan and had place to park. He has a shower and bathroom attached to his garage specifically for campers use. Plenty of food/groceries in town. Really cool place to stay.

July 10th, 2017 Roadside Parking

Slept here overnight in my Sprinter Van (doesn't look like an RV though). Needed a place to stay after spending a night in Crested Butte and wanted to do some mountain biking the next morning at Mt. CB. Drove up out of town and parked on the side of the gravel road near here. Few other cars were camping nearby. Didn't see any signs against it there. No one bothered me, but I did get in after dark and left early.
