What is “Slab City”?

Slab City, also called “The Slabs” is not only  RV boon-docking camping  but also a place where people desert camp year-round.  *It is not really a city as there is no mayor, no city amenities like water, electricity, nor waste management.  This is Off-Grid-Living.

Slab City Census

There are about 2500 people living in Slab City between Nov and March, then that number dwindles down to about 150-200 Slab City full time residents during the summer. Slab City Residents are often referred to as “Slabbers”.

Slab City Short History

Slab City was formerly the U.S. Marine Corps training base called Camp Dunlap used in World War II. It was closed, buildings were deconstructed, and abandoned years ago. The ownership of the land upon which Slab City is located belongs to the California State Land Commission under the Department called School Lands.

The cement foundations that were left after the military buildings were torn down, is how it has become known as “Slab City”. It is a camping home to many winter RV travelers, retirees, and some 200 permanent residents who stay during the summer as well.

There are no fees to camp here. Campsite parking is on a first come/first serve basis. There is no water, sewer, trash pick-up, nor electricity. This is Boondocking territory. This is where people experiment Living Off The Grid.

Slab City RVers

Snowbirds living in RVs tend to camp in groups of like-minded people and similar interests such as Fulltime RVers, Canadian RVers, Single RV camping clubs, and even Hippies, and young train hoppers and “travelers”.

If you liked the movie “Into the Wild”, you may want to read this book by Chris McCandless’ Sister.
