The ‘couchsurfing’ of RVing. Find hosts who invite you to park on their property for free, or if you have land – offer to host.
And up and coming RV Park Review site, that lists public, private and boondocking areas. Our reviews for 2015+ are left here.
A crowdsourced listing (on a map!) of free campsites – generally ‘wild camping’ locations on public lands.
Harvest Hosts keeps a database of wineries, farms & museums that allows members to park overnight with them. Great experiences! (Save 10% using this link!)

Extensive collection of free overnight RV parking options. The listings are curated and checked and verified. Costs $25/year, but worthwhile keeping (mention firstname.lastname@example.org and get a free month!)
Passport America Discount Camping Club
The only camping club we keep a membership in – for $39/year, you get 50% off at parks. Great for overnights dumping/refilling tanks in-between boondocking. Our # is R-0242893
RV Park Reviews
This site has the most extensive collection of RV Park Reviews (we just don’t much care for their user interface or lack of a mobile app.)
Has a comprehensive listing of public campgrounds – BLM, National Forest, State Parks, etc. Great mobiles as well.
