I've been trying to track down locations for dry
camping ... without a lot of luck. I've run into
statements like "everyone knows about BLM lands,
so we won't discuss that" and the like.

Well, I don't know about BLM lands! Can anyone
point me at information about places where you can
just pull off the road and drop anchor? (Not in
a WalMart parking lot!)

Thanks!

Invest in a DeLorme's Atlas for whichever states you are interested in. They show all the backroads, BLM, state, private land etc. Best resource we have found unless you can talk someone else into revealing their favorite spots like I just did for you in your "Moab" post We prefer to drycamp most of the time, don't need a bunch of other campers around us.

Go into your search engine....I use the Earthlink one but any search engine will work. Type in BLM camping, you will get all kinds of hits for different states etc.

Are you going toward Arizona? Lots of BLM land in AZ. North of Quartzsite is good, north enough to get a distance from the winter Quartzsite crowd. Then there is SE Calif. Also Nevada. The west is full of great places on BLM & National Wildlife Refuges, most of which allow dry camping.

allenh:

How do you know which land is open for camping and which isn't? Do you need permits to camp outside of formal campgrounds?

Thanks!

During the summer, we camp a lot in national forest campgrounds. We use www.reserveusa.com for reservations. This site also has a fairly complete list of the available campgrounds.

Well, dmj, I'm a little late with this but for the most part nearly all BLM land is open. Some require an onsite permit but very few. No reservations. Also there are Forest Service campgrounds, most are a small fee, no res., no hookups.

Also suggest checking Corps of Engineers website. Lots of room around resevoirs, etc.
