March 10th, 2020 Bivouac des Aigles - Oasis de Fint

This place is not available anymore for camping or sleeping in your vehicle You could hire a bivouc tent which is not really cheap.

March 9th, 2020 Defat Kasbah

The area is nice and quiet. The views over the river are good as well. But the toilet and shower are in bad condition. No hot water. Toilet door can not be locked.
Not a lot of shadow in the grounds but you can sit in the courtyard.

March 3rd, 2020 la vallée d'ammelne

The correct name is L’Arganier d’Ammelne.
For us it was the perfect place to have the conveniences of a campsite after several days in Tafraoute on a free spot without electricity and shower.
It’s a good starting point for excursions into the Ameln valley. The narrow and steep road to Tagdicht is mindblowing. We cycled up to the village, but a small rig or car could manage it too.

March 1st, 2020 Guardian Parking, Tafraoute

Stay here for several days in a camper van. There are a lot of vehicles of all kinds, maybe over 100. All official campgrounds seem to be overcrowded now, so it makes sense to take a spot
on the fields north of the town.
Recently there is a public and modern sanitary station that takes black and gray water for no extra fee.
Lovely place, great views.

February 27th, 2020 Vallée à Tarsouate

Price is now 80 dirham. We were the only visitors. Good place to spend the night but nothing to do in the village.

February 25th, 2020 Camping La Vallee, Abaynou

This place is a good hiding place when there are sand storms around Guelmim. Price was MAD 60, electricity included. Tranquil place with many trees. We loved it. Good 4g.

February 17th, 2020 Le Nomade

This place in Mirleft is a pleasant little place. It fits about 5 rigs. You also could pitch your tent here or rent a room. It’s a hostel type place with kitchen, fridge, couches and dining tables. It is completely walled and gated, so it’s safe.
Hot showers and clean toilets with tp. You can a enjoy sea view from a roof terrace.
The coast is on a short walk.
The fee is MAD80. Electricity is extra.

February 15th, 2020 La Dune Auberge overnight parking

The place can fill up during the season, especially February. A front space is not always possible then. It’s still MAD 40.
I saw several people camping in their vehicle further north along the shore. Not sure if it is allowed.
Don’t forget to watch the flamingo and ibis population in the nearby Massa Lagoon.

February 13th, 2020 Aire Camping Car Parking Bab Lakhmiss

The place is almost full with French full size motorhomes. Some of them stay for weeks.
The sanitary block is good and clean. You can empty porta potti’s and drain your grey water.
Spaces are not very large. Wifi not available.

June 11th, 2019 Campground Doughton Park

No showers but the restrooms are OK. The A-loop for RV has more sunny sites. We took one with our van.
There is coverage for T-Mobile and others. You won’t have that one most campgrounds along the BRP.

June 10th, 2019 Rough ridge lookout

Showers are free for people who camp here.
It’s a good campground, but no wifi or 4g, so you’re cut off from the rest of the world.
Generally there is not often T-Mobile coverage on the parkway it self. But on some unexpected spots it can be good.

Now 20 dollars.

Nice area and many birds.

May 13th, 2019 Old Fort Boise RV Park

It’s a good city park for a night. Nothing fancy. On a busy road. There is a lawn, picknick tables, shade from the trees and electricity 20/30A. Water at the sites was shut off. Bathrooms are OK and showers free. Now a 7 day limit. But who wants to stay longer?

May 6th, 2019 Primitive camping near Sisters, OR

Good for a night. Quiet. Some T-Mobile LTE, but not fast. Excellent bathrooms in town.
The bike ride to the McKenzie Pass is great, this time of the year. In early spring not open yet, in summer open for car traffic, but in May and June it’s bicycle heaven, although only Fr, Sat and Sun! During the weekdays also closed for bicycles because of road work.
