Where to Find
- National Wild & Scenic Rivers System
- These offer some great wilderness-type camping with less
crowds. I take my kids for an overnight catfish
fishing trip on one of these rivers each summer. Go to
this directory to find a river in your state.
- US Forests -
Find A US Forest By State. Inquire as to whether
or not it is permissible to camp within the forest other
than established campgrounds. For example in
Superior National Forest: Camping Allowed Anywhere
within the forest unless posted.
- County and State Forests, other
public lands, & private land open to the public - You
can often find public lands by searching platte maps of
your county. Also, many paper companies and
utilities allow public use (check first!) Your
best is to locate online or purchase a Platte Map of the
county you are looking to visit, and inquire further.
Many times these maps may be found online by doing a
search with your county name in quotes and the word "maps"
as shown below:
