As I have covered in this blog previously, approximately ninety percent of Nevada is public land, which means you can boondock just about anywhere, so finding a camp spot is never much of a problem.
Even if you make camp for the evening after dark, a campsite is fairly easy to find providing you are not near any population centers. The neat thing about arriving after dark is discovering the views that await you come morning. It could be a sun drenched mountain range or a valley that seems to stretch into eternity. However, remember to watch your step as you exit the RV the next morning. You see, the majority of the public land in Nevada is also open range land which equates to livestock and the piles they leave behind! Boondocking and cow chips, just another adventure in RVing!
Watch Where You Step Exiting Your RV!
Great Boondocking View!
Dave Helgeson’s many roles in the RV industry started before he even had a driver’s license. His grandparents and father owned an RV dealership before the term “RV” had been coined, and Dave played a pivotal role in nearly every position of an RV dealership. He and his wife Cheri launched their own RV dealership in the Pacific Northwest. The duo also spent 29 years overseeing regional RV shows. Dave has also served as President of a local chapter of the Recreational Vehicle Dealers Association (RVDA), worked on the board of advisors for the RV Technician Program of a local technical college, and served as a board member of the Manufactured Home and RV Association. Dave’s reputation earned him the title of “The foremost expert on boondocking,” bestowed by RV industry icon, the late Gary Bunzer (The RV Doctor). When he’s not out boondocking, you’ll find Dave in the spotlight at RV shows across the country, giving seminars about all things RVing. He and Cheri currently roam in their fifth travel trailer, with Dave doing all the service, repair and modifications to his own unit.
