The City of Homer partnered with the Homer Chamber of Commerce to help address the problem of RV parking in Downtown and Old Towne Homer by establishing two day use parking lots for large Recreational Vehicles: the HERC building (also knows as the old middle school) parking lot on the corner of the Sterling Highway and Pioneer Avenue and the rear lot of the Homer Visitors Center accessed by Ohlson Lane.
Visitors can park their RV at either of the two locations to access the shops, restaurants, and galleries that otherwise would be difficult to get to due to small parking lots in Downtown and Old Towne. Though there are many attractions within walking distance of the two parking lots, visitors can forgo the stress of navigating the streets of Homer and let a local driver show them the sites. Two cab companies serve Homer, Kache Cab (235-1950) and Kostas Taxi (399-8008). Homer Trolley Tours (235-2228) offers a day pass and stops at many Homer attractions. A map of trolley stops and additional information can be found here.
Parking is for day use only (between the hours of 8am and 9pm) during the summer season (the second week of May thru Labor Day). Signs are posted to help direct RV traffic.

From the Sterling Highway, turn onto Ohlson Lane (toward the water) then take a left into the Homer Chamber of Commerce and Visitor’s Center parking lot.
b. Old middle school parking lot on Pioneer Avenue.
From the Sterling Highway, turn uphill onto Pioneer Avenue and take the first left onto Woodside. You’ll see an older two story, tan building, that’s Homer’s old middle school.
