On the hunt for a place to park your rig on your road trip? Are all campgrounds already booked? Whether you just need a safe spot for an overnight pitstop or plan to stay awhile, Vanly just might be your answer!

So, what is Vanly

Vanly is a marketplace that connects property owners willing to share their space with vanlifers and RV travelers in need of safe overnight parking. 

How does Vanly work? 

On Vanly, you can find listings for private parking spaces all over the map. From the east coast to the west, you can search parking spaces in all 50 states. 

To find one near your destination: 

  1. Enter your location
  2. Filter by price, size, and amenities
  3. Book your favorite 

You’ll find listings with everything you need from laundry rooms and hot tubs to WiFi and showers. 

Why should you book a site on Vanly? 

As Memorial Day approaches and the season turns to summer, campgrounds are going to be booked and busy, especially at National Parks. 

Booking a site on Vanly saves you from worrying about parking tickets, late-night visits from the police, or making last-ditch attempts to boondock in the nearest Walmart parking lot

Anywhere you want to go, there’s a Vanly host whose driveway is ready for your rig. This is more than a parking spot. When you park with Vanly, you connect with locals and become part of the community — it doesn’t get much better than that! 

Where should you road trip? 

More Americans than ever will be heading outdoors this summer. According to our research, a whopping 91.4% said they plan to take an RV road trip this month, with more than half planning to hit the road this summer. 

And you can too! There’s plenty of room in the outdoors for everyone. However, the same can’t be said for National Park campgrounds. 

Here are three of the most popular National Parks and where you can park with Vanly. 

Yosemite National Park

Reno Urban Oasis is a driveway with perks, including wifi, electricity, water, laundry, and bathroom facilities. In Reno, Nevada, you can camp on a small urban farm among the chickens, rabbits, and honey bees before making the drive to Yosemite Valley

Glacier National Park 

Park you rig in the peaceful woods near Glacier National Park — about 45 minutes away. After a long day at hiking at Jewel Basin in Flathead National Forest and Glacier National Park, end the night around the fire pit. 

Death Valley National Park

Spend the day in Death Valley National Park and the night at Kokopelli Moon Rescue in Springville, California. Only about an hour from both Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks, you’ll have a lot of adventure in store. 

Vanlife is calling 

Book your Outdoorsy RV rental, reserve your Vanly driveway, and hit the road. Vanlife just got a whole lot easier.
