We've seemed to run into a bit of trouble in San Diego...we can't find overnight RV parking anywhere. Normally, we boondock. If you follow our journey regularly, you know this. But in San Diego, we're finding it hard to do just that.
Apparently, there's been a few laws passed which prohibit RVs from camping anywhere other than registered parks, overnight. These laws were up for debate for seven years before officially being set into motion. Why? Because campers were abusing their power and parked wherever they pleased for up to months at a time.
Now, you can't even stay at a Walmart in San Diego without catching some flack. So, we
decided to suck it up and get a campsite for the night through Passport. Except, San Diego RV sites are expensive, even with the discount! I was shocked to find most campsites coming in an $50-75 a night. Who the heck can afford those rates?!
The next option was to check out state parks, which usually come to $10-12 a clip for a dry, safe spot. Yet, we couldn't find anything under $20 a night, and even those had gates that locked after 7-8pm. So, we are kinda sunk.
The only other option we have is to check out the neighboring casinos around the outskirts of the city, which are known to have security-approved blacktop parking. Yet, it won't help us much as we were planning on staying in the city for nearly a week to work.
Anybody out there have a similar experience in San Diego, or maybe can recommend some inexpensive RV parking?! Any and all recommendations welcome! :)
