Outdoor shower by beach

Outdoor showers by restrooms near beach. Strong water pressure. No privacy. Four shower heads and one to remove sand from feet. Restrooms are giant and super clean. You can park at the beach or the campground and walk down a short gravel path. Coordinates are for the dump station at the campground (free potable water).

Rock pit spur road

Stayed one night. Easy pull through spots. Plenty of space for multiple large rigs. A few other car campers were here when we arrived. Lots of giant piles of gravel and large boulders on the perimeter (appears to be a construction staging area). No cell service. Gorgeous views above the tree line.

Free dump station at Spring Canyon campground

Free dump station at entrance of campground. We spent nearly two hours here flushing our tanks, cleaning/sanitizing our fresh water tank, sanitizing our four scepter containers, filling our water, etc. Not busy at all (it was a Tuesday evening). Camp host is fun and friendly! Also have a free outdoor shower at the beach.

Spring Canyon Water

Free potable water and dump station. Faucet is threaded but there isn’t a hose. Also have no potable water to flush tank.

Spokane Tribal Casino

Great spot for an overnight. Friendly security guards, lots of space, mostly level, trash cans, 4 bars of Verizon, etc. Some panhandlers walking through the parking lot occasionally.

Hillyard Aquatic Center - FREE Showers at open swim

Awesome city pool (one of 6) that are free during Open Swim! This location has a small parking lot and street parking. We arrived an hour early for the 6:30-8:30pm Open Swim. We were in the first 10 in and there were hundreds of people behind us by 6:30. Great place to swim and shower.

Gibbs Eddy Access - large pull off by river

Giant gravel area right by the river. Put toilet, boat launch, and plenty of space for numerous rigs. Large rig friendly. Level. No cell service.

Little Payette Lake, USFS Dispersed Camping

Stayed for 7 days and loved every minute of it. Great views all around. Plenty of spots for miles down the paved road. The lake is safe for swimming although cold. Close to downtown McCall yet feels like your deep in the wilderness. Lots of drive by traffic including ATV.

Free water

Potable water on side of gas station. Small threaded hose and easy to turn handle. Large pull through parking. Large rig friendly.

Dispersed Camping (free)

Way too narrow after the initial steep section of the road. We couldn’t fit through with our truck and travel trailer. Good option for high clearance vans, tent campers, etc.

Road side pull through

Secluded pull off along the river with a large berm blocking the road. You can pull through. One end is pretty rough and rutted but we got through with our truck and travel trailer. Berm was covered in gorgeous poppies when we stayed overnight.

Banbury Hot Springs Campsite

Stayed two nights at the RV campground. Small, quaint spots with FHU. We bought the June special for swimming $50 gift certificate for $35 and swam two days. Also rented kayaks and did the two hour round trip to Blue Heart Springs (a must see blue oasis). You could easily park and take a free shower as the showers are unlocked and accessed from outside on the far left of the building. One washing machine and one dryer for only $1.00 per machine (super old but wildly efficient Speed Queen machines).

Valley Country Store / Phillips 66

Great location for one night. Tons of level area to park. Saw other RVs and semis. Quiet and dark enough to sleep well.

Street parking

Easy spot for a night while exploring Yellowstone. Just outside West Yellowstone, Montana. Lots of rigs, camper vans, travel trailers, etc on both sides of the street. Plenty of space for multiple rigs. There’s also a hiking trail through the woods.

West Yellowstone

Easy spot for a night while exploring Yellowstone. Just outside West Yellowstone, Montana. Lots of rigs, camper vans, travel trailers, etc on both sides of the street. Plenty of space for multiple rigs. There’s also a hiking trail through the woods.

Rest area

Had the place to ourselves! Flat parking lot can accommodate multiple rigs. Nice bathrooms, dumpsters, covered picnic tables, drinking fountains,

Sheffield Creek, National Forest

We arrived early on a Monday, while it was raining, and quickly realized we couldn’t cross the “bridge” to the campsites. The water was too high for our comfort (2500 truck and 25ft travel trailer). We ended up staying overnight just before the bridge. We unhitched, explored Yellowstone, and came back in the evening to find out TT surrounded by two Class As, a camper van, and a car camper - surprised but we all fit and had a great time! I imagine the flowing water was higher than normal since it had been raining for two solid days. See photos 😁

Moran Vista

Giant gravel area. Can easily accommodate numerous big rigs. We drive all the way down the road and every spot was taken so we turned around and stayed here instead. Easy and convenient. Some unhitched. Lots of Class As. Great views.

Teton Rec Center

Great place for a shower! Individual stalls with strong water pressure. The pools and water slides are awesome, too! Well worth the entrance fee. The lifeguard, Robin, was especially friendly and taught our 10 year old how to dive during open swim.

Jackson Visitor Center

Water, trash and recycling. A little difficult to fill 5 gallon scepter containers but it worked with time and patience. See photos to see what I mean.


Water is still $0.45/gallon. Located just inside by the carts.

Jackson Laundromat

Large, spotless laundromat. All of the machines look brand new. Various sized washers and dryers. Prices were reasonable for the area. Lots of locals, too.

White mountain road dispersed BLM

Beautiful, easy to access spot along the road. Gorgeous panoramic views. Could hear and see the train in the distance. Easily accommodated our large rig. Enough room for several other large rigs to park and still have privacy. Fairly level. Road in was dirt, we’ll maintained, flat, and easy to navigate.

A Clean & Simple Laundry (free WiFi, too)

Just like it’s name - clean and simple. First carpeted laundromat I’ve seen! Restroom, change available, vending machines, a wall of dryers, and various sized washing machines. Parking in front and back. Large rigs can fit in the front but driving through the back would be tight on the turns.

Potable water at pavilion

Potable water at pavilion. The faucet is on the bottom of the drinking fountain. The faucet is not threaded so you’ll need a water bandit to fill your rv. Could easily fill water bottles, scepter 5 gallon water containers, etc. from spout. FREE

Confluence park dump station

Free dump station with non potable water. Easy pull through. There is potable water at the pavilion, however, the faucet is not threaded (we used a water bandit on our hose to fill our rv).

Confluence Park

As described by others - great free spot! We stayed one night along the water near the baseball fields and back playground. We also enjoyed walking to Fort Uncompahgre on the Old Spanish Trail (visitor center and fort replica). Easy peasy place for rigs of all size.

Southside Laundry

Great, clean, friendly laundromat! The attendant was super helpful. Machines take quarters and credit cards. Reasonably priced and all machines worked. Has a great sitting area with coffee by donation (and a bunch of ice cream options, too). WiFi was free and FAST! Great restrooms.

Montrose Wal-Mart

Large, level parking lot. Lots of other travelers parked overnight. Great for one night.


$40/night for no hookup RV spot. Spots are close together but worth it for the location, staff, showers, potable water, dump, dumpsters, etc. Walked to the hot springs and downtown!
