Van Camping Parking Strategies

Stealth Camping


The ideal spot to overnight is not a stealth camping spot! It is on the property of a friendly person who allows you to park there, where you can visit and socialize with others. However, when you are on the road and traveling, and need a place to stop for a night, stealth camping is the way to go.

The goal in choosing a place to sleep in a van is not to hide in a remote area. The goal is to find a place where it is normal to park a vehicle overnight.
