It seems like there was never a problem finding cool places to boondock out West. We often went without hookups in California, Utah and Colorado. But even here in the middle of the Okefenokee Swamp we have water, power, paved roads and a few neighbors.
We were able to dry camp for about a week in Blackwoods State Park in Maine when checking out Bar Harbor, but that campground was so developed it had heated restrooms and paved roads for all the huge rigs that stayed there.
Now long showers and lots of lights at night are nice, but I’d much rather go without hookups once in a while in exchange for some serious peace and quiet.
Case in point … Just as I wrote that right now, a hoard of loud kids walked by raising a ruckus!
It seems the only places where one can dry camp East of the Mississipi is in Walmart parking lots and truck stops. What’s up with that?
