If you are driving from the Pacific Northwest a place to rest for free.

Post by wedeliver » Mon Mar 19, 2018 10:21 am

FREE Again, Eagle's Nest RV Park...as we have for the past 12 years, for 2018 we offer our gift to folks on their way to BRC and returning home. It does not matter how early or late you are driving by and we do not check for tickets or anything. You can come in and get the rest you need, that's what it is all about. FREE

If you are driving from the Pacific Northwest we wish to gift you a place to stay and rest on your way to Black Rock City. We have offered free camping to people going and coming since 2006 and again this year 2017. For those who have never been here, we are located 60 miles south of Klamath Falls, Oregon in California just off California Hwy 139. We are just off a route to Black Rock City that goes through Alturas, California. Our Website is http://www.eaglesnestrvpark.com We have a webcam that shows the conditions outside and I try to have a weather station up and running so that information is available.

FREE Here is our gift to you. A place to camp, rest, prep your mutant vehicle and just relax in a safe secure, privately owned, property. In the past years we have closed the RV park to only burners but we have found that people staying here love meeting burners and learning all about Burning Man. We have bathroom facilities, both portapotties and one with showers if you need it. Our water comes from a well that is over 300' deep and the water is great, better then bottled I would think. We can fill a 50 gallon drum in less then 5 minutes and the water is a gift to you. In 2014 there was a little concern about me having enough water because of the drought in Northern California. At this point the drought is OVER. YAY. I will have hoses set up so we can fill your water tanks quickly and you and get back on the road, FREE.

Early entry folks, Rangers, Med Staff, Fire folks, Theme camps all welcome. Some people like to stay here from Friday and leave to arrive at sunrise on Monday morning. Naturally the same thing goes for on your way home after the event. This paragraph is from 2015 and entry has changed.

In 2011 we stopped counting at 500 people and that was on Sunday afternoon, I figure another couple hundred came after that. A lot of people come in late at night, take a shower get some sleep and head on out again. Other people stay longer as I said above. We kinda leave it to you guys to not make a mess and Burners live up to that request!!

The only thing we cannot gift our burningman family is electric usage. I don't care about charging phones things like that, btw. we have a great wifi that is also free. But if you wish to plug in your RV to our electric system and run your AC that is ok, just not free.

I have cut and pasted most of the above from 2017.

What a wonderful gift and thanks for providing it again!!!

I've always just shown up and its been fine and I think this is how it goes normally. There is a loop road with pull throughs in the middle so pause after the gate to get your bearings a little and choose a spot to pull in and park. A quick scan will show you what is going on. If you are arriving at night get parked and shut you engine off as to not to wake people sleeping too much.

Looking forward to stopping by Sunday evening on the way down to BRC from Seattle... Was hoping to do it last year as well but routing changed for reasoning outside my control.

Thanks for the offer!

I did enjoy stopping here, although beware the electric charge which is significantly higher than it says on the website. $20 minimum when we stopped after the burn in 2016.

We went ahead and reviewed your complaint and wanted to let you know that we filed it with the proper department.

Sparr, Can't you let anything go and just be thankful for the generous gift? If you just wanted to play some music and keep your lights on, then just do whatever you've been doing at the burn for a week. Batteries, generator, solar. A free camping spot is a gift. Most people have great things to say about their stop-over. Now say something nice about it!

That’s funny... he’s never charged me for power... I wonder what could have made him want to charge even more than usual in that certain instance. I just can’t imagine.

ok yes I can

My Placers send tons of newsletters and emails. Aren't you getting those? The placers for the 4:30 sector start at 8am, are eating or meeting sometimes for a couple hours in the afternoon and work till 11pm. All times approximate. You'll be fine.

the burners are coming, the burners are coming, the burners are coming... yay. We have had a bunch of folks stop here on their way to ttitd... If you have been here before you will see that we have a lot more people staying here then we normally do. But I can always make room for burners. If you read this, you might consider parking in the playground area if you don't need electricity (which is not free if you do NEED an electric hookup. No generators allowed). Finally, I am sorry I need to say this but I don't want your trash or have you dump your tanks here. There are lots of places that offer free dump stations and places to leave your trash. THANKS.
