In this video, I give you a look at the mundane side of our snowbird boondocking travels. Time to do assorted chores, laundry, flush the tanks and get refilled with fuel, propane, fresh water, etc
We stop off at a cheap little RV park in Gila Bend, Arizona. It’s located on Interstate 8 between Phoenix/Tucson and Yuma.
I show you around the RV park, dog park, and truck stop. Then explain the benefits of our Passport America discount camping card which gave us 50% at the this Holt’s Shell RV park. $11.98 plus tax.
At the end of the video, Anne gets a turtle!

Seems like a nice little place. Probably great to find them along your route. Nice and easy to get in and out and everything you need at a great price. Who can complain about that?
Although, now my wife wants a turtle too!
I thought about checking into Passport America, but most of what we do is weekend boondocking anyways, so I don’t know how much it might actually save us? I haven’t dug deep enough into it to see.
Do you use any other services like that? Something like Good Sam or KOA? I’m just curious how all these savings deals work and stuff like that (excuse my noobness on this one).January 24, 2018 at 12:29 pm #50110RayKeymaster

We have BCAA which is the same as AAA. It gets us 10% off at some campgrounds, usually the same ones as Good Sam. Not really that much savings, same with KOA.
KOA parks are good for families, they usually offer extra stuff for entertaining kids, but way overpriced for folks like us even with discounts they give. imhoJanuary 24, 2018 at 1:18 pm #50112DonnyParticipant
Good to know. I have a KOA 6 miles from the house and I thought of being able to possibly use them as a dump station, but I haven’t looked into it yet. Still have yet to spend a night in an RV park. Something I have never done.
