Camping on a campground or a campsite is widely done by people. Something uncommon and reserved to a category of more than average adventurous people is—dispersed camping.

Dispersed Camping


Most of you must be pursuing dispersed camping, but may not be knowing it has a term. Well, dispersed camping is a camping at an unconventional spot like outside of an identified campground in a National Forest. Dispersed camping comes with no frills like- toilets, showers or trash removal etc. which makes it the core way of camping.


Picking a spot in a national forest might seem easy for such a camping idea, but the truth is, there are certain things which you should consider before choosing a spot for dispersed camping, and here they are.

1. On hand information- Designated campsites are safer in terms of the facilities available, but if you are planning to anchor your tents on an unusual spot, you need to get a reasonable amount of information. And for that, you could contact your state forestry agency or any other agency who is managing it.


2. Different rule for different lands- Before hitting the spot, you need to understand the difference between state-owned forest lands and National Forest Service lands. They both are different and have a different set of rules for camping.


3. Permitted land- Not all the lands are permitted for camping, and so it is important to understand which areas outside the designated campgrounds are permitted for camping.


4. Be on the road- Roads leading to such remote and recluse spots might not be paved yet they would be there. On such trails, it is wise to be on the road and not get off. You won’t want to get deserted to an unwanted spot in the wilderness.
