Still at the Slabs

This morning we welcome new followers Mark & Chris and Julia. Thanks for joining our blog and we appreciate your support.

So, how does Slab City rate as a campground? It's definitely big rig friendly with plenty of huge, level campsites. You can park in view of other RVs or you can park totally alone on the fringe near a cluster or trees with a view of the mountains and the Salton Sea. You can even find sites without garbage but there is no avoiding the trash when you drive in and out or go for a walk. If you're only going to be here for a day or two try to include a Saturday night, when you can enjoy free live music under the stars at "The Range", an open air concert stage where local artists perform.

We caught this sunset right out our windshield yesterday evening.

While we're slummin' it here at the Slabs, fulltime RVer Nina, and her dog, Polly from Wheeling It is lounging in paradise. Nina visited us at our last stop in the La Quinta area; Lake Cahuilla County Park

Nina may be lounging in the spas at Desert Hot Springs but Slab City has its own bubbling hot spring too. There were no bathers when I stopped by due to the strong winds yesterday.

The VW bus lives on!

The Wooly Mastodon made out of tires is one of my favorite art exhibits here.

The bottle garden is cool too.


  1. It is such an interesting take on living "free" We always enjoy it there.
