Numerous free campsites along Interstate 40 provide safe locations for travelers to do just that. Let’s learn more about these free camping sites and where you can find the best spots!
Free camping is when RVers don’t stay overnight in a designated campground. Also called dry camping and boondocking, free camping means no hookups. RVs must be fully self-contained to pull off the side of the road and stay overnight in a parking lot or on BLM land. There must be water on board and a way to generate power.
Interstate 40 runs west-east through the south-central part of the United States. The road is just over 2,556 miles long, the third-longest highway in the country. Its western end begins in Barstow, Calif., while its eastern end begins in Wilmington, N.C. Much of the central part of Interstate 40 parallels or overlays historic Route 66.
