Date Place Comment
August 3rd, 2018 Victoria Harbour

Great spot! Little loud but hey you are in the centre of a city...

August 1st, 2018 Secret spot by Cathedral Grove

Really nice spot. Beautiful river next to you.
Full 3G Rogers signal.
Downsides:
Pretty close to the road
It’s less secret than you think (we where with 4 cars) ;-)
And it’s pretty messy. We took over 4 bags of garbage with us.

July 30th, 2018 Kennedy River - TOP

We tried to get in there but the road was to small and narrow or we where to big. ;-)

July 27th, 2018 the oyster parking

What a great little spot! Nobody around. Great easy walk to the beach where you can go for a swim. We found so many blueberries (fridge full). Please keep this spot clean so we can keep coming here.
2 bars of LTE with Rogers.

July 26th, 2018 Bruno Automotive

Very nice owner. Came with us to check what was going on. He told us no repair was necessary. He didn’t charge us anything. We came back to him for break flush and tire rotation and he charged us very reasonable.

July 25th, 2018 BC Hydro - Lillooet

Nice spot. Pretty busy but still worth it. Small little river down there which is nice to cool down.
No cell reception with Rogers but 1 bar 4G with Telus.

July 25th, 2018 Free Recreation Site, Beaver Dam Lake

It’s 5km dirt road and very easy accessible. Nice spot. Some mosquitoes but still manageable.
Almost full LTE signal with Rogers.

July 24th, 2018 Blue Lake NORTH, BC Rec Site

Pretty good spot! Nice view and you can go for a swim in the lake.
At the beginning you go straight (don’t take the yellow gate). When you see a sign of pipeline you go right.
We had just one other camper.
Got 1 small bar of Telus reception.

July 20th, 2018 Exchamisks River Provincial Boat Launch Area

Oke spot for the night. There are some bugs around but not many people where visiting on a Friday. There are some BBQ spots and a boat launch.

July 18th, 2018 Hidden Ring

There are a few spots in this area. Pretty good spot and gets the job done for the night. Not much cars passing by. Good cellphone reception with AT&T.

July 17th, 2018 Chilkat state park

Beautiful and very quiet state campground. When we where here just 2 other campers. 15USD Small hike down the hill and you will see a amazing beautiful Glacier with a waterfall coming out of it. Clean toilets and 1 bar of AT&T LTE reception. Different hiking trails in the area. Have fun!

Ps: Did you know that holland isn’t the same as the Netherlands? It’s a province of the Netherlands (well we have 2 of them).

July 16th, 2018 Fresh mountain drinking water

Mountain stream where the locals get there water as well. 2 back hoses coming out of the mountain. They assured us it was save. If it isn’t we will post below later ;-).
Wish us luck

July 14th, 2018 Lake View Campground

Great spot! Nice views and a lake with some canoes. Everyday at 7pm there is a talk from the staff. Toilets are very clean. No cell phone reception.

July 12th, 2018 Rest Area Indian River

Nice spot. We left because of high water and we didn’t want to take the risk. No cell phone reception.

July 12th, 2018 Midway Service

Great old family! Sleeping here is for free. If you want to use electric it’s possible for a 10 dollar fee (electric is expensive in the area). They even let you use their wifi for free and in the morning you can get a cup of coffee in the store. An amazing hospitality! To thank them we bought a lot of stuff in the store, please consider doing this as well.

July 10th, 2018 Cabela's

Yes there are signs but overnight parking is really no problem here at all. We have spoken with the manager and they just don’t want you to park straight in front of the store. They would like to have you on the side of the store. There is a 5 dollar dump available. Target is next door with some free wifi. Great solution for Anchorage.

July 9th, 2018 Coin-op Laundromat

Coin-op Laundromat, 2101 Abbott Rd, Anchorage, AK 99507, Verenigde Staten
Simple but good laundry. 2.75 for a machine. Also really big machines available for 5.50.

June 30th, 2018 Exit Glacier Road

Nice spot! Beautiful river and way better than generator hell in town ;-)

June 30th, 2018 Drinking water

Nice spot! Lots of locals are stopping here. We filled up, thanks for sharing!

June 27th, 2018 Susitna state park

Boat landing and campground. We are still not sure if it’s a public owned thing or private owned. Anyway reasonable prices (staring at 12 dollar for no hookups see pictures for more prices) and no highway noise.
Good LTE phone reception with AT&T.

June 24th, 2018 Wild turn off

Oke spot for the night. We where alone. We could just fit in with our truck camper. Almost full AT&T LTE reception.

June 24th, 2018 Bus from movie into the wild

Here you can find the bus from the movie into the wild. The movie tells the incredible story about Alexander. Inside the bus you can read more about his adventure.

June 20th, 2018 Simard automotive (2 locations)

Great mechanics, they also service old cars (VW and others). Really friendly people. They helped us really well. They have a shuttle service (free) and also a really nice waiting area. Not the cheapest but for sure good quality.

June 15th, 2018 Grass area away from the road

Take the dirt road. At the end you will find a big loop where you can camp. All sizes vehicles will fit. Tent camping shouldn’t be a problem. We had a few bars of AT&T coverage.

June 15th, 2018 At Gerstle River Bridge

Beautifulllllll! What a view. You can camp in the river bedding (see picture). Pit toilet at the beginning of the road.

June 14th, 2018 Off the road with a view

Looked good but the entrance is indeed narrow so we couldn’t get in (GMC 2500). We continued our way to Tok and took a other side road instead.

June 14th, 2018 Midnight Dome Parking Lot/pull Out

Great spot! No problems at all. Nice views at night. We didn’t had much traffic at all.

June 12th, 2018 Laundry at Dawson city RV campground

You don’t have to stay here to use the laundry facilities. 2,75 CAD for a load and another 2,75 for drying. There are 2 dollar showers around the corner. (slow) WiFi available.

June 11th, 2018 End of the road!

It’s done...you can go home now!
Nice spot at the end of the road. There is a bbq pit and a table. Not sure if you can spend the night here. Anyway enjoy this moment...you finished the Dempster highway + a little bit extra!
Big up for you!!!

June 9th, 2018 Lakeside Wild Camp on Frog Creek

Great spot. Nice little water. We saw a bever in the water. But please clean up, we took 4 bags of garbage with us.
