Re: Parking the bus - long term camping

Hey I like the idea of a campground for Skoolies only - forget the yuppies with their fancy RV's. It would just be a place where we could park them for as long as we want. It would have a central gathering location with a small stage for local bands to come and play on occasion. Someone ought to start one around Kansas City... or maybe I should, huh?

WOW you guys & gals are a wealth of information. Have many of you found skoolie issues at campgrounds? Have you had where you were refused at the gate once arriving? Cypress Cove (http://www.cypresscoveresort.com) in Kissimmee Fla. has confirmed they welcome Skoolies if you prefer clothing optional. Hense my soon-to-be babies name.. Au Natural!!

I've got 8 acres one hour south of OKC and any skoolie, passing thru or in the area are more then welcome to boondock here. Just pm me first so I can give you directions and open the gate.

Re: Parking the bus - long term camping

Please excuse me for my ignorance, but I cant understand why anyone would want to spend the money to stay in a campground. Ive been living in a 66pass. for like 6 months with my girlfriend, 1 lab, one cat, a three year old little girl, and now a puppy. we have never once pulled into a campground. we did look into a few but there was no way we could be crammed into a spot with another camper like 4 feet from us. dont get me wrong, im not criticizing campgrounds i just feel like they are over priced and almost communist with there rules. I mean, come on , is there anyone out there with me on this one. we have stayed a lot of different places and in all of them we have had space and freedom (so much space we threw away the power wheels and got our little girl a 2.5hp gocart). Some of the campgrounds wanted more money a month than i was paying in rent. I mean, why live in a school bus if an apartment is cheeper? If there is anyone out there who is really looking to live on the cheap, give a national forest a shot.

I understand where you're coming from, but when you're in a town that has no boondocking locations and you need to park more than one night, a campground might be your only option.

Re: Parking the bus - long term camping

You just need to move from Wal-mart to Wal-mart.

What I don't know is why someone with 640 acres is renting camping space--or paying for RV storage. In Europe you have a one-acre campground and 500 people will be packed into it. We have 20 acres and all of our camping involves sightseeing or visiting relatives. We have giant fires and camp in our yard constantly.

Some like being around & meeting other people, many like the hook-ups (lol, not with the campground wimmenz), swimming for the kids, showers, fishing/boating, security (of sorts).

I'm with you, though I grew-up in campgrounds but will be looking to avoid them "most of the time", but I may still visit a few, off-season. Different strokes........

the rv park i'm in is only $220 with $40 for power so $260 which is better then any rv park in walla walla.
