May 31st, 2017 Near the port and park

Pull off along the road by the port and Discovery park. gets quite busy with car traffic early in the morning but is free and doesn't seem to have any restrictions

May 29th, 2017 Cal Anderson Park

stayed here one night. quite noisy but free - just make sure you leave before 8am when the parking restrictions kick back in

May 29th, 2017 national forest right outside NP (correct gps:46.713085,-121.558278)

great free forest spot with several places to camp off the road. super quiet and just a few minutes from the entrance to Rainier National Park

May 26th, 2017 300 Meters Off Oklahoma Road

good little spot to sleep. very quiet on amongst the trees. probably not a good idea if it's been raining

May 25th, 2017 park and ride

church parking and also park and ride for Portland although no buses actually stop here, you walk about 10 mins to catch the bus.

very quiet lot with lots of space. you are allowed to use park and rides for 24 hours. would guess this doesn't include sleeping there though we had no issues.

do not use this or other park and rides for more than 24 hours or I'm sure they'll add restrictions.

May 22nd, 2017 coastal lookout

we rated overnight in this parking spot just before the sign that says "fee use area". very peaceful and ne most amazing sunset I've ever seen! make sure you view the sunset from the fee use area - it's out of this world!

pit toilet in the fee use area, and super good phone signal

May 20th, 2017 Craig Beach Parking & Picnic Area

nice quiet spot. just us, some tent campers and a weird abandoned car... good place for free as there's not much else around

May 19th, 2017 Yurok visitor centre

perfect spot! there's not much I'm yurok but there is a visitor centre. we parked around the back which just seems to be a pretty empty carpark with hardly any cars about. no signs or anything to say you can't park.

there are toilets and water towards back of the visitor centre. toilets are locked at night but there are toilets at the petrol station across the road too.

no signal but you can get pretty good WiFi ('yurok youth centre') by parking outside the second group of buildings as you face away from the visitor centre. you should see what I mean when you get here.

May 17th, 2017 Sonoma Coast Vista Point

great place with incredible view at sunrise. it is just a dirt pull off so no amenities but surprisingly quiet at night

May 16th, 2017 Public parking next to YMCA

we stayed two nights and were absolutely fine - nice quiet place BUT! on the second nice the police came into the carparks other their sirens on before 6am and kicked out a campervan and an RV. we weren't asked to move nor were we spoken to - not sure why, maybe because we live in a Ford Econoline and their more stealthy?

May 14th, 2017 Mission

we parked around here for one night, not the quietest but good place to rest.

May 13th, 2017 Salinas River Beach

great little pull out on both sides of the road on the far side of the river from the beach.

slept here two nights without disturbance. pretty quiet area too as the park closes at sunset.

May 13th, 2017 Pacific Coast Highway Closure

should add that this won't open any time soon and you can't get to Pfeiffer beach or myway falls from here. $5,000 fine if you try and go down to the beach on foot.

May 8th, 2017 Mono Lake

great place to spend the night. was our ford van and one other RV. so peaceful and beautiful views!

May 8th, 2017 Stanilaus Boondock

definitely need a 4x4 or high clearance to get further off the road or not be scared of getting a puncture. quiet area

May 7th, 2017 Emigrant, Death Valley National Park

slept here one night in our ford e150 van. there is a sign saying tents only but most people there seemed to be sleeping in their cars. has running water and flush toilets officially only 10 slaves but can fit two cars in one space if need be.

great free spot!

May 6th, 2017 Walmart

Walmart car park just north of the strip.plenty of RVs parked in here and surprisingly quiet overnight. Walmarts nearer to the strip won't let you stay overnight so this is your best bet

May 4th, 2017 Coyote Pass Trailhead

great place to sleep far enough off the highway to be peaceful. also has a lot toilet. seems to be one guy living there permanently. only issue is you have to go out of kingman town west and then do a U-turn at some point to access it from the easy.

May 2nd, 2017 Parking shoe horse (glen canyon)

quiet night sleep with good stars. people start arriving here at 5.30am for pictures though so you probably be woken up around then

April 30th, 2017 Sheep Bridge Road

loads of spaces on BLM land. does get pretty busy from 6/7pm onwards although I'm sure you'd find a space somewhere.

April 29th, 2017 Shower Moab

super hot showers for just $3 still the cheapest place in Moab and they were super clean. you just need a quarter to get them started which you get when you exchange the $3 with the owners

April 24th, 2017 Sam's Club

good quiet night sleep. a few RVs parked in the walmart but much quieter if you head over to Sam's club and park along the side.

April 22nd, 2017 Alamogordo Walmart

fine to park overnight if park down the left hand side lots of RVs there
