In certain respects, boondocking is a simpler form of camping. You free yourself from the reservation process and fees but lose the luxury of a developed campground. Boondocking is also a handy way to just park and sleep. If you are on a tight schedule and just need a spot to crash for the night, parking in a free lot overnight is a handy way to save you time and money. There are a ton of different locations where you are legally allowed to stay overnight. If you’re out in the wilderness, finding a spot to safely boondock is simply picking somewhere remote like BLM land. If you’re in town and need to find free camping quickly, here’s some other popular options: - Truck Stops/Rest Areas - Visitors Centers - Trail Heads - Apartment Complexes - Hotels/Motels - National Forests https://thedyrt.com/magazine/lifestyle/boondocking-guide-free-camping/amp/

Things have been very difficult for everyone since 2020 has started. We are in a new year and the question still comes up: Is it a good idea to go Camping right now? We encourage everyone to follow the CDC rules and carefully analyze the location where you are planning to go Camping. “ Winter is officially here, and many are looking to camp as a way to escape their city for a socially distanced getaway. Camping is considered by some experts to be one of the least risky activities, so we rounded up some great camping locations.”
