RV Boondocking

Maps! Easily one of my favorite things about RVing and traveling in general is looking at maps. And as much as I want to jump right to the mapping sites it's probably a good idea to link to a few sites that explain just exactly what boondocking is. Then we'll get to the maps. :)

What is boondocking? - "Boondocking is essentially camping without hookups. You may also hear it referred to as 'dry camping'..."

Boondocking Tips - the How to and Where to - "Boondocking, Off the grid, Off the cord, Dispersed Camping, Dry Camping or Wild Camping are all names for camping or RV'ing without any hook ups (water, electric or sewer)..."

Boondocking Resources

Freecampsites.net - Easily my favorite site for finding boondocking campsites. Zoom in on the map and click on an icon that looks interesting. From there you can get a lot of info on the area with a link to google maps to get directions.

Campendium - I haven't used this site much but I hear a lot of more experienced RVers do. It looks to have a combination of free camping and paid parks.

Boondockers Welcome - Also known as moochdocking. Don't let that fool you. It's a cool idea.

Public Lands Interpretive Association - A map of western states. There is a massive amount of land (mainly out west) where boondocking/free camping is allowed. BLM land, National forests, this map shows those and more.

How to Overnight at Rest Areas, Overlooks & Trailheads - A video by Robin at CreativityRV giving tips about overnighting at some places you may not of have thought of.

Tips for Free Overnight RV Parking at Walmart - Yes you can "camp" at Walmart. A video from the guys at Long Long Honeymoon.
