Top ten free RV camping tips

Everybody loves a buy one get one free offer, how about buy one get them all free; sounds good right let me explain.  When I first purchased my four-wheel  pop-up camper I envisioned that I would have some opportunities to camp in some secluded areas for free, but I had no idea  what was truly available.

The US is arguably  one of the most beautiful  places on the planet.  hopefully  some of the photos you will see can support that.

The tips I am about to share and work with most RVs  but some  will definitely  favor  a pop-up camper, like my Four wheel.

#1 national Forest.

national Forest  can be spectacular and normally free.  sometimes  you are  on mountain roads  by streams or lakes  and the set up like my four wheel pop-up camper  is worth its weight in gold.  Some of the prettiest  campsites I have used  would be remote  at best.  There is no chance  you’re going to  roll in with a 33 foot motorhome.

I many times tease my good friend  who has a big  30 foot plus motorhome  saying you hike up from your campsite to see that beautiful view  by a lake or stream where I am already  camped.

#2 BLM land

BLM public lands are located in many western states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Wyoming to name a few.

Most require a fire permit which I normally forgo because my four wheel pop-up camper has a great stove. In addition being a hunter  having myself or my clothes  smell like  an extinguished campfire  is not my idea of going unnoticed by animals  in the woods.

#3 private logging companies

Private logging companies throughout the US have secured some of the most beautiful land imaginable and often allow free camping. In most cases  campfires are not permitted  for obvious reasons.  For them Camp Fires  is like giving a kid  a hammer in a  shop  that specializes in glass figurines  and fine china,  Not a great combination.

#4  Walmart

if you just  want a place to spend the night with access to clean bathrooms,  groceries, and other supplies you might need,  Walmart can be a great choice. Most Walmart super centers and many of their stores  allow this overnight  courtesy.
