Description

Parking lot between Community Center, sports fields and a kind of gym, not prohibited signs, quiet at night, busy at mornings, mostly weekends. I stayed 2 nights, not problem at all!

You can walk to town easily, it has a toilet, and open wifi.

A wee sketchy. 😬 I usually pick great spots so fingers crossed. I'll let you know in the morning. I am self-contained, so won't be stepping foot outside. Update: I left. I wouldn't recommend this place. Matter of fact, I'd recommend leaving this town.

Report Check-In

Essentially a large parking lot, lots of people camped here. Everyone seems to be minding their own business but the place os definitely sketch. Im fine on my own but if i had a wife or kids with me I wouldn't let them out of my sight here. Seems like a good place to park and crash but thats about it. Lot of zombies / addicts. Im not concerned for my safety here but by the looks of things i fully expect to be woken up tonight by undesirables. Pretty much the next step up from a tent city. Verizon 4g 3-4 bars of service.
*update *
Miraculously I was left alone all night and it was very quiet.

Seems popular. Easily a dozen others in the lot but quiet. Couldn't find the after hours bathroom/pit toilet mentioned by others.

Came to town with the intention of staying a weekend and have now been here almost two weeks after picking up some work. Stayed here every night. Feel very safe, sleep well, plenty of trash cans and bathrooms. Lots of locals stay here as well as other travelers. Keep it clean and be respectful!

Very nice park. No RV parking but they don’t care if you take up 4 spots.

I've parked here several times. Nice but there are some homeless. Right in town.

Report Check-In

Nice quick overnight stay. Pit toilets. Fairly clean. Harmless homeless around. Met friendlyPaul who helped us out with where to go for things. Will return next time we’re around.

Report Check-In

Definitely a lot of folks who roam the parking lot, but they don’t seem to bother anyone. Spent a few nights here and always felt pretty safe

Report Check-In

Great spot - very quiet. A handful of other rv's and vans in the parking lot when we pulled in. Woke up to the garbage truck but otherwise nice quiet place to stay

Report Check-In

Close to town. Didn’t get bothered overnight. Seems like a place that roadtrippers would come and crash for the night then continue hit the road the next day.

Report Check-In

Spent the night in a 32 ft RV. Level parking near workout building. Very quiet and plenty of parking. There were a few zombies and people camping in cars but no problems.

Report Check-In

Good safe place to spend the night - portaloo covered in poo however.

Report Check-In

Porta Potty was overflowing, trash everywhere inside it, and someone pooped on the floor. by far worst bathroom I've ever laid eyes on. The sports center has bathrooms inside it too and it was open so we went in those. not sure if we are supposed to do that though since the lady at the desk asked for our member cards and we just asked if we could use their bathroom right quick. Well lit parking lot, saw lots of car-lifers and one other van-lifer overnight here too.

Report Check-In

We stayed one night here, several other travelers, few zombies in the area. Wi-Fi in the community centre

Report Check-In

Wie schon beschrieben, kann man hier gut für eine Nacht stehen. Tagsüber ist hier ordentlich was los. Abends ruhig.
