Description

Free overnight parking in the town of Houghton.

Parking lot with room for boat/trailer parking. Under bridge.

Restrooms available on site.

A bit noisy due to the bridge overhead.

Just a short walk to restaurants/brewery.
We loved the KBC brewery, just $3 a pint for a draft local beer.

Excellent Verizon cell signal.

Good place to stay for a night while exploring the town.

Also, coin operated showers available down the way by the skate park. Just $1.25 for a 10 minute shower.

Latest Check-Ins

I actually really liked this spot. I parked in the furthest spot from the bridge and slept with my sound machine on and didn’t hear the traffic at all. Bathroom is super clean and was open 24hr from what I could tell. Nice walk by the river, too.

Report Check-In

Spent one night here. It was NOISY- don’t forget your ear plugs. The van was shaking from the semi trucks driving over the bridge. It was difficult to stay asleep.

We saw two other people sleeping in their vans and one person camping in their car.

All in all- a safe place to sleep for the night.
There was a clean public toilet next to this parking area.

Definitely recommend stopping by Roy’s pasties nearby for breakfast

Report Check-In

Very loud. There’s a bar barely a stones throw away as well as constant traffic on the bridge above. Works for a legal overnight spot but there’s probably others in the grey area nearby that’ll be a better choice.

Report Check-In

Nice spot to spend the night under the bridge. Other vans were there and there are public city bathrooms available. We had a dog and the city walk is very close. Would definitely stay again if passing through

Report Check-In

Great spot and fun little town to explore. If you don’t mind some very mild road noise this is a great option!

Report Check-In

Confirmed! One night with some noise around bar close. Otherwise great spot with approximately 35 spots available. One other van here overnight. Perfect for exploring town. We will likely return.
