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.

Leonard Knight, creator of Salvation Mountain dies at age 82
Slab City Residents mourn the loss of our beloved Leonard Knight, creator of Salvation Mountain. Here is a video that shows Leonard Knight speaking with the common enthusiasm about LOVE that Leonard shared with the community and on his Salvation Mountain.
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 gone, is how it has become known as “Slab City”. It is a camping home to many winter RV travelers, retirees, and some permanent residents who stay 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.*(This is complicated…changes are in the process).
Slab City RVers 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, Hobos. young train hoppers and “Travelors”.
