Hi, Any National forests and State forests have dispersed camping. Pick your spot and pitch your tent. Some of these places have free campsites that you can drive to and set up your tent, or sleep in your car if it is raining.
I started in California, on motorcycle....still on it... :)
I've been looking for BLM Land while making the trip across country. Takes a bit of time and research but very nice when found/available.
Amazing new experiences. Desert camping, New Mexico/Rio Grand. Arizona was beautiful and the people impressive and kind.
Hi, There are also some boon-docking web sights also. https://www.boondockerswelcome.com/ and https://boondocker.com/ I have met the most wonderful people this way. Staying with someone and chewing the fat, sometimes breakfast and always happy smiles. I stayed with someone for a week once and helped build a driveway.
