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?

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...

    • Shame on you for questioning  these great and wonderful plans.  Have you no faith?  Besides it's pure nonsense.  She made a lot of claims that her plans would not add anything to the deficit or debt   But we have heard those same claims many times over.  It's a mystery why people still believe that everything is going to be funded through just simply raising taxes on people making over $250,000 a year just because "their " candidate said so When a candidate comes up with more spending ideas and tells you that the "rich" are going to be the ones that are going to fund them ,what they really mean is they're  going to fund them through printing and borrowing. They just use accounting tricks and schemes to hide the cost but I prefer math   Personally, I prefer any candidate I were to support tell us how they're going to get us out of this fiscal mess we're in    
    • I agree he should not have been playing in the world cup.
    • Im going to run my Elite 5 on the dash also, soley as my gps. So that will free up space on the Garmin for the side imaging...Now I cant wait for spring to try out all the new toys haha....I've always heard Garmin were really nice I just never saw any of their units that had the features I wanted and were in my $$ range.. I think I'll be really happy with it...Im curious how the preloaded maps are that come with it (lakevu??) I think its called. It would be sweet if it would take my Garmin upper midwest fishing guide chip, but I doubt it does.
    • I don't think it will adhere to the surface very well under 50 degrees.  Especially on the bottom, it could create some real problems if it doesn't stick very well!
    • Sure wakes ya up when nodding off and that reel goes ZINGGGG!!
    • lol sugar coat it all you want Nick the Gophers are a 7th best team in the Big 10 period. They don't have a meaningful win this entire season and they didn't beat any other team in the big 10 with a winning record except for Northwestern who are 5-4 in conference play but 6-6 overall. That isnt trolling at all, its facts.   I hope they can recruit by selling a trip to the Holiday Bowl this year. Big things happening for the Gophers!
    • that sounds great!!!  they were good pictures too!
    • I use the same set up and I think it's the only way to go.
