November 9th, 2021 rest stop

Water spigots labeled unsafe to drink- do not use for water fill

November 8th, 2021 Methodist trails BLM site

Pulled up at dark to this place and it was difficult to navigate because there's so many different roads. From what it looked like, there were people camped long-term in the first spot. People near us were yelling and fighting for hours and we decided to leave at 11PM because my partner and I were sketched out. Out of 4 months of vanlife, I've never left a spot before because I didn't feel safe so that is saying something. I guess it mostly depends on who is staying there with you.

October 19th, 2021 Henry Horton State Park

State park campground that has hot showers for $5/person unlimited time. They also have primitive campsites for $12 that include a picnic table and fire ring (with showers included). Great for vans/tent campers

October 16th, 2021 Newfound Gap Parking Area

Stayed here for a night. Beautiful view for sunrise in the morning. Intermittent cell service 1-2 bars LTE on ATT but not much would load. Restrooms a short walk from the parking lot..relatively nice, no sinks just hand sanitizer

October 15th, 2021 Harper Creek

As described, about 3 different sites with fire pits (from what I could tell). Intermittent 1 bar LTE on AT&T. All sites were full by 9PM on a Friday. Sites were relatively flat- but not big rig friendly.

August 3rd, 2021 Lake Crescent Water/ Dump Station

RV water fill for drinking water(not a spicket, has a vertical hose that can be used with an attachment and your own hose) and dump station (fee $10) at the crescent lake boat launch

July 28th, 2021 1854 black river school

Drove by this place to check it out if we wanted to park here, tons of trash littering this place (microwaves/old shopping carts/etc.) Did not stay for the condition it was in.

July 27th, 2021 Longmire Stewardship Campground

I tried to stay here during July and asked other campers if it was free to camp- they said that it was a campground for volunteers of the park (although there weren't any signs). A park ranger later confirmed this. I would not recommend staying here. Not sure if it is available to the public during the off-season, but I would not plan to stay here.

July 6th, 2021 Spring Green Boat Launch

Free place to stay- no one bothered us, one other RV stayed the night in the parking lot with us. We only have a fan in our van so we have to keep the windows cracked (with window covers up) to create a cross breeze and the bugs were pretty bad inside the van. Other than that, nice place to stay

July 6th, 2021 Stickney Town Park

Previous review was in point- we were the only ones there for our overnight stay! It had hot showers by the pool (open even when the pool is not), picnic tables, electricity, water. It was perfect for passing through! It's about 8-10 minutes off the highway
