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

*NEW* Moochdocker - Not exactly boondocking but a new platform dedicated to "help you find affordable, immediate, and safe accommodations for your next RVing experience" Think of it as Airbnb for Rvers. This is a new venture so give them time to get things going. And if you're interested, sign up.

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.
