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...

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
