Does anyone have any hints as to where you can park a car overnight in idyllwild, close to Humber Park? I already considered a reserving a campsite, but you have to check out by noon on the day you're leaving and I don't think I'd be back to my car in time.

Also, if you are an Idyllwild local and would be willing, I would pay you to park at your place. We can bargain in dollars or brews.

Why not pay $5 for a FS pass and just park at Humber Park? Josh Cameron

I was under the impression that even with the FS pass you can't park overnight. Am I wrong? Jesse Davidson

Yeah, I don't think you can officially camp there, but I've always just slept in my vehicle and I've been fine. Josh Cameron

Based on other posts, it seems like parking overnight at humber park could likely lead to a ticket. Given this post is a couple yrs old, just wondering if things have changed.

And are there other suggestions for overnight parking? Doesn't have to be in the forest. I have a cargo van that I'll be sleeping in so just need a quiet parking lot in town or off the road that won't get us in trouble.

For south ridge, would a cargo van make it through the dirt road?
