If you have been following my blog for long, you know that free is my favorite price! Free attractions, free stuff and especially free camping. Imagine my pure joy when I discovered Oregon State Parks throughout the state are offering free admission June 6th and 7th along with free camping the night of June 6th, 2015. It’s not just standard (non hookup) campsites either, but full service (power, water, sewer) campsites, too! Wait, it gets even better. In addition to free admission and free camping, park visitors will also be able to crab, fish and clam without a license June 6th – 7th as part of Oregon’s Free Fishing Weekend, compliments of the (ODFW) Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife. The ODFW will also provide gear, bait and instructions at selected state parks including Champoeg, Detroit Lake, Jessie Honeyman and parks located in the Columbia River Gorge.

Some parks are even offering free food! Silver Falls State Park is hosting a free barbeque and Stub Stewart State Park near Portland is offering a free lunch!
For a complete list of events visit oregonstateparks.org and click on “Things To Do.”
Don’t miss out, camping reservations can be made by calling 800-452-5687 before 5PM June 5th.
Free admission, food, camping and fishing, that is my kind of adventure in RVing!
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.
