Used to do overnighters at an abandoned park in southern Ontario around 1990. Usually involving lots of LSD. Valentino Park. Abandoned in the 70's and left largely untouched until it was razed in the 90s. Hidden in the woods off a dirt road 10km from the nearest town. There was even still power in the kitchen/cafeteria building, and the rooms behind the bandshell were perfectly intact (one was still fully furnished, as a bedroom) so great for sleeping in when it was too cold to just sleep on the stage. But I preferred to sleep in the bed of the old 40s era pickup truck beside the swimming pool.

I wish I carried a camera back then.

Power plant, and I have napped in a few. I keep meaning to camp in a drain, but kids happened instead. Maybe when they're older...

Never have, but I'd like to. There is a series of videos on youtube of this great group of guys doing overnights at Hudson and Kings Park hospitals in NY.

Most places I've explored, I probably wouldn't want to sleep in what with the funny smells, mold, asbestos, etc... This one had pretty good air flow though where we slept.

I have camped on and off at several locations throughout the years. Probably the craziest was in a kayak during a trip down a river where we hit up a factory via water entry many moons ago. Great times. I love the mine photos.

Yes. More likely it was a thing i did 5 - 8 years ago.
Rooftops (factory rooftops, sometimes even block house rooftops which were accessible in the middle of night). I live in a city where are lots of seagulls so the very first thing almost precisely in 5AM are some seagull screams. And they don't stop. They usually keep on yelling until 7AM.
Ohhh. Once i slept in a half-factory near port where were hundreds of seagulls. Whenever the guard was walking rounds around territory, seagulls would become "alive" and make a concert(screaming).

Bunkers, too but there are two kinds of bunkers - the ones which are military ones, inside forests or bunkers which are inside city. Sleep quality sucks in those which are located in the city. You hear extremely creepy echoes in hallways all the time, some weird sounds which comes from foreground. So yeah zero sleeping quality in city bunkers. In former military bunkers it's nice and quiet unless it's a well-known spot where some adventurers might go in the middle of the night to party.

Abandoned buildings or factories - coldest nights ever, wind everywhere, i think it was a stupid idea to sleep in a factory where all the windows are smashed.

I've built a tent next to old building foundations in a middle of a field. Works as a wind shield, a little bit. There weren't any forests nearby.

Now i think it's better to build up tent in a safe distance, 1-2 kilometers away from the place i want to explore or have already explored (if it's in countryside). Because i wouldn't want to wake up and find out that the building is set on fire by a crazy arsonist or some criminals have arrived to a "secret place" where to hide a dead body or whatsoever.

We often camp close to, and depending on the weather inside the mines we explore. Sometimes there are buildings left that make a nice shelter.Other than the bats and mice going to and fro, it's a nice night's sleep.

My newest dream is to round up some buddies, hop on a motorcycle, drive to the middle of nowhere, and camp in an awesome abandoned site. This is kind of unrelated to urbex but when I lived in China I went backpacking and camped on the Great Wall. We had to pay off the guard but you know it's China so 15 bucks lets you do whatever you want (:

It was a great experience and I'd love to do it again in some beautiful abandoned building with nobody around. I feel like it would be a really unique and fun experience. Who's down for a bike trip this summer?

First, it is depressing as hell that we are already saying "this summer."

Second, that sounds like a dope experience. I could be down.
