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:
