Free overnight camping in small towns
I have heard that many small towns offer free overnight camping such as electrical hook up for a small donation. How do I find these small towns?

We've come across towns that have inexpensive camping owned by the town but not free.

Fairgrounds are another common source...but again, we haven't found where they are free.

Last year we stayed at Pima County Fairgrounds, Vail, Az. with full hook-up and WIFI for $27.00/night--w/Good Sam Discount. This is S. Tucson area off I 10. Definitely would go back there.

I have never seen a list of small towns that have low cost camping unfortunately.

Tomball Texas - 3 nights free. Vulcan Alberta up to 3 nights free. Just off top of head. There are some still around, albeit over recent years with cost cutting/irresponsible people prior they have diminished. Check out Ioverlander or Freecampsites, often find some in there folks have stumbled across. Most of ours listed have come from over a quarter century keeping notes from readings but ..... Yep there are still some out there, just not as many as years ago.

Happy Trails.

A useful source for free or inexpensive campgrounds is the Ultimate Public Campground Project. AllStays also lists some, but not all the small town campgrounds.
