Cheap or Free RV camping

9 posts in this topic

Anyone know of any cheap or free campgrounds with sites large enough to fit a 25" fifth wheel RV? Electricity and water at the sites are nice but not necessary.

It would be nice to compile a list. I know of a couple.

Rush River Park near Henderson costs only a suggested donation of $10 per night. Of course there is no water or electric for this cost but it is a nice park.

Lake Auburn campground near Victoria only charges $11 per night and again there is no water or electric.

There are many campgrounds in the $20-25 range that also include electricity and sometimes water. Lots of County parks are in this range like Baylor park and Baker park. There are also city parks in St. Peter and Henderson that are $20 per night. Allanson's in Henderson has water and Electric while St. Peter has just electric.

OK, these are all the cheap campgrounds I can think of. What do you know of?

Walmart parking lot is about the only free site that comes to mind.

Some casinos let you stay in the parking lot with electric hookup for free. Its not really camping though.

There are some remote sites in Lake County that are free and or cheap. But with that you aren't getting any services. Bring your own water, no showers, and no garbage.

If you are in western MN there is Pine Ridge Park just north east of Herman. It is free to camp there. There are outhouse and i think running water but no showers. I am not sure about electricity. It is at a dam/resivoir in the mustinka river. There is a beach and walking trails and decent fishing for walleye and northern as well as others. Below the dam is a good place to shore fish.

You could park anywhere with a "25 inch" rig. If your looking for cheap, my driveway, on a lake for $20 with electric (110) and water per day...

    • Everything turned out awsome, I'll definitely be hanging the bellies again. Cold smoked then heat with more smoke.
    • love the answer thirdeye!!!!  hang onto that last bottle!!
    • Should be some good games today, I'm definitely rooting for the Falcons and Steelers but I don't know man. The Pats just seem to play the best team ball in the League. Guys step up and perform at every different position.  The Packers are just scary in the post season, not so much the whole team but that dirty dog Aaron Rodgers.    I hope they both turn out to be competitive and exciting.

    • You miss the Bush administration? Howso considering the Obama administration was pretty much the same only cooked a little longer?
    • many of my 2nd graders have more frontal cortex development........
    • My trailer is a bit over 20 years old. It was redecked 10-12 years ago with 3/4 plywood decking that was not treated and that lasted about 10 years as well so it seems a decade is the lifespan of regular plywood left outside with no treatment.    I replaced the deck for a second time this year and used treated plywood so we will see if that makes it more than a decade. I would suspect you might expect at least that much life from advantech even though it doesn't seem to be rated for continuous exposure if I read it right.
    • That's what I miss most about the Bush administration. Sure, they were evil, but at least they were freaking competent. Sure, they lied a lot, but at least it wasn't about easily disprovable things like crowd size. When they lied, they lied to further their agenda, not to mask their hurt fee fees.   All Presidents are ridiculed.
      This is the only one who takes it personally. Such a baby. Sad!
