Renegade Camping, Dispersed Camping, & Boondocking
Dispersed Camping is basically no power, no crowds, no modern luxuries, No Worries! it’s just you and the great outdoors.
Dispersed Camping is also sometimes referred to as Renegade Camping, Primitive or Backcountry camping and boondocking.
Scattered throughout the country there are millions of acres of public land for you to take advantage of. Most people who camp off the grid will pick a road in the national forest, or off some other public land, and then keep on driving. When the road ends, the real adventurer won’t stop until they find the perfect spot.
I recommend choosing a road that’s not often traveled. Roads with signs usually mean there will be to many people, and might not be the best spots to set up camp. Old dirt roads and old abandoned rail lines are some of the best places to look for.
Unless otherwise posted, all National Forest land is open to camping. (but please make sure to respect the land. Leaving garbage or driving over vegetation ruins it for everyone)
