Dry Camping at the Flying J

Dry Camping at the Flying J

We really like to camp dry (no water, electricity, or sewer hookups) or boondock (away from cities, blacktop, and civilization) when we are going on long trips. It helps us cut our Rving costs.

Here we are at the Flying J truck stop in Rock Springs, Wyoming.

Dry camping at the Flying J works out really good for us. You can get Wi-Fi in your RV for only $4.95 a day. It works fast and is pretty reliable. Flying J has spots specifically for RVs, so you won't have to park among the trucks.

They also have RV fueling stations, free RV dumping, and water to fill your tanks.

Just a note to those who use these stops, we always follow the RV Industry sanctioned "Code of Conduct" and parking etiquette when stopping in urban areas and only bring out our slides etc. for a short time when it will not interfere with others parking.

Here's the Good Neighbor Policy:

Industry-sanctioned Code of Conduct
(RVers’ Good Neighbor Policy)
1. Stay one night only!
2. Obtain permission from a qualified individual.
3. Obey posted regulations.
4. No awnings, chairs, or barbecue grills.
5. Do not use hydraulic jacks on soft surfaces (including asphalt).
6. Always leave an area cleaner than you found it.
7. Purchase gas, food, or supplies as a form of thank you, when feasible.
8. Be safe! Always be aware of your surroundings and leave if you feel unsafe.

Flying J's are lifesavers.
by: Rick

I just started my fulltime dream and I pushed to far one night and was looking for a place to just stop with my 13ft fiberglass RV and Jeep and sleep.. over the horizon a Flying J!.

I had read on hear and other fulltimer sites about how rv friendly and you were right!..

I climbed in the back after going in and making a purchase as a thanks, and checked my email and slept great and was able to get up refreshed for a safe continuation! thanks Flying J!..

As I was gearing up to head out the next morning, the Rv'rs on both sides of me when I exited my trailer were standing outside of my TT looking, I thought I had a problem and became worried, they were just commenting on the size, it was a small community of nice people! who didn't even know each other!.. I am loving this lifestyle!

Dry Camp at Flying J

Flying J also offers an R.V. Real Value Member card that can save you up to 30 cents per gallon. With a membership you would receive coupons and credit redeemable at Flying J locations, restaurant and merchandise benefits, montly promotions, new store announcements, and fuel crisis updates.

On our last trip we traveled well over 5000 miles, and this card helped save on our fuel expenses.

It nice to know that RVers are welcome to pull into a parking lot and get a few hours rest. If we all follow the Rving etiquette standards then we'll be able to retain this privilege.
