Valley River Center, you have to be self contained as in gray, black and fresh tanks to be able to stay. You can stay 2 days if you are.

Do any of you in the area know any good spots on the edge of eugene or springfield, where one could "camp" for a few days to a week without being super worried about being harassed or having to move? Temporarily trying to stealth in the area while fixing up and remodeling an older A class before hopefully leaving the state, and kinda have to be able to be semi obvious and stationary due to the remodeling process. Thanks in advance for any suggestions or general tips  Smile

Campers also now have to have an address or on their ID for out of town because they're trying to keep it from being the next Walmart. However, my address is for Junction City and security said that was far enough out apparently, so they are pretty relaxed about how far out of town you have to be from.

We've found some pretty good curb camping spaces in Eugene and some not so good. Within the city limits we have a huge homeless community and the police include Vehicle Dwellers to be classified as the same. The City of Eugene Parks are hit and miss for overnight parking. The signs all say closed between 11pm and 6am but the police have overlooked this law in many areas. Downtown or near the River is still hot and we do not recommend parking overnight in those areas but almost everywhere else is OK. Not great but OK. The police will take down your license plate if they see you frequently. Why? Gathering evidence we imagine. Walmart is a dump and they regularly make a sweep through and clear everyone out. There are many other areas. If anyone here would like more detailed info, we would be glad to pass on some ideas.

Hello Lively's, We are the Stearns's. My wife, daughter and I are considering moving into a motorhome here in Eugene so that I can focus more on school (rent is quite high and only going up). I would love any helpful wisdom you would have to share including how safe you feel living mobile here in Eugene.

Thanks

Security Guards just want someone to talk to and help keep them awake until the end of the shift rolls around: really. Me TV and studying gets old, unless the Twilight Zone is showing on the 3rd shift.

Owen loop is still available, although some of the land has been purchases and they might be clearing out the area to begin building. I haven't been there in a while. We were asked to move once from there, but the cop was friendly and it was in the middle of the afternoon on a weekend and we were given to days to do so. Apparently, they clear out the area a couple times a year...no biggie.

We haven't stayed by any parks yet so that will still be up to the Livelys to fill you in on. Springfield Walmart is a decent place, but there were some rowdy neighbors that got the cops called on them last week.

International court in Springfield is a decent place by motel 6, but there is currently an abandoned school bus and rv, so not sure how good it's going to be in the near future.

Commercial avenue in Springfield has a wide gravel area on the north side of the road across from Stafek & Son trucking. We've parked there quite a few times.

Occasionally, we have stayed on S 54th in springfield right next to the Safeway as well.

I've been meaning to check on the possibility of camping at Valley River Center, but I've been lazy.

I've heard of people also staying at Winco in springfield, but there are signs up that prohibit that, so stay at your own risk.

I hope this helps and good luck to you.

Ive stayed in The Toys R Us lot on the other side of the mall, the security guard told me about it. I've never been bothered or hassled even with having the trailer now. I use Barns & nobles bathroom, eat/drink at starbucks that inside at times and read books/magazines. There is a plug outlet in magazine area, I didnt see any outlets in the starbuck cafe area. I've been doing this since July/Aug of this year and also stayed there in July of last year checking out Eugene. The camp ground
