20 Best Free Camping Spots in USA | 2020 UPDATE
READ THE ARTICLE: https://drivinvibin.com/2019/07/15/free-camping/

Today we’re talking about free camping! In fact, we’ll be talking about 20 free camping sites you’ll freakin’ love. We loved each and every one of these sites and want to share them with you.

Free camping AKA boondocking is almost always an off-the-grid experience. This means you’ll have to come prepared with your own water, power and waste management plan.

We’re Kyle & Olivia, a young couple traveling the country full time in our 16ft vintage camper. We hit the road in September of 2015 with the goal to live a minimal lifestyle and connect with the world around us. We want to share our experiences as we learn and grow, to hopefully help others who dream of life out on the open road. Join us as we discover the joys and obstacles of nomadic life!

    Why ist there any places in the north east

  2. B Sim on November 1, 2019 at 3:45 pm

    If you are up for no electricity, try Five Springs campground upper level in Lovell, WY. Has amazing views and you are so near the Medicine Wheel national monument. Campground limited to Max 20′ campers. Overnights are $7 per night, outhouses available. No winter trips, roads closed!

  3. T Brown Records on November 1, 2019 at 3:46 pm

    You made a nice video for 2019 this info helps us out for real Thanks 🙂

  4. how many on November 1, 2019 at 3:47 pm

    There are alot of free camps in Wisconsins’ National forest. You have to bring in water and make a loo, take out what you bring in, leave no trace. I have camped there, for free, most of my life.

  5. ucla89 on November 1, 2019 at 3:51 pm

    Alabama Hills, outside of Lone Pine, CA, didn’t make the list? The view of the Sierras alone is worth the trip, but there are also rock formations that rival Joshua Tree NP to climb and hike, and trout fishing nearby. Any size rig can get in.

  6. CE L on November 1, 2019 at 3:52 pm

    Great list. Thanks. I live near the northern terminus of the Natchez Trace Pkwy and want to drive the full length. Now I know I have a place to stay when I get to the southern end.

  7. Life Hunter on November 1, 2019 at 3:55 pm

    Great video. Thanks so much. I took notes. Extremely informative and now you have a new subscriber

  8. JoycesRVLegacy - on November 1, 2019 at 3:56 pm

    When is the best time of year to camp at each place?

  9. Mengyao Wang on November 1, 2019 at 3:58 pm

    Thank you!

  10. John Eason on November 1, 2019 at 3:58 pm

    I love Moab! I will check this place out spring of 2020. I have friends in Tucson I visit in March, I will check out several of these place going home to norcal.

  11. Organica G on November 1, 2019 at 3:59 pm

  12. Missouri travelers on November 1, 2019 at 4:00 pm

  14. Tracey Cummings on November 1, 2019 at 4:02 pm

    This is a fantastic video! Thanks for all the great spots to go!

    Don’t you worry about living your trailer & gear alone while you go to a town or hiking? Have you ever had anyone take anything?

  15. Frisky Dingo on November 1, 2019 at 4:03 pm

    You poor man your girl and dog are always walking away from you😅…lol jk great video, and cool spots! Will definitely have to check them out. Can’t wait to see more great things from you guys, keep it up!

  16. Cecilia cecilia on November 1, 2019 at 4:03 pm

    Great and helpful vid! Gimble is good.

  17. Cat Man on November 1, 2019 at 4:07 pm

    Free camping is fine but without people is perfect 😕😾

  18. J Pool on November 1, 2019 at 4:09 pm

    great video thanks . is your pickup a 4×4 .

  19. Dave Clark on November 1, 2019 at 4:10 pm

    Cape Kennedy, Florida on the South side of the inlet.

  20. Sue Freivald on November 1, 2019 at 4:10 pm

    new to RVing and on a tight budget – 17′ camper. Found #8 in the National Forest south of the Marina on Flaming Gorge in Wyoming – miles and miles of decent road with awesome lakeside camping. Also, in Utah in the Uinta-Wasatch mts off 150 (scenic highway), great boondocking between the numerous campgrounds on a lovely meadow–south of the forest ranger and south of Christmas Meadow. Camping after labor day we had both areas almost to ourselves – did need to watch the weather moving in. The roads at Flaming Gorge could be a bit greasy after a heavy rain :~).

  21. bizim eller on November 1, 2019 at 4:12 pm

    Nicely done, gimbal works fine, thanks.

  22. Leo AvLo on November 1, 2019 at 4:14 pm

    I loved them all!! free free free?

  23. Charles Knight on November 1, 2019 at 4:14 pm

    Thanks so much for the outstanding information!!! Will be hitting the road next year and this info is exactly what I will need!!! Great content; better videos!!! Chuck Knight from Buffalo, Texas. 🤠

  24. Robert Chokonen Van Fleet on November 1, 2019 at 4:16 pm

    Nice job on the video, love the information. I will be putting it to good use, and will continue to follow your posts!

  25. Tim Green on November 1, 2019 at 4:18 pm

    The Gimbal worked great, very steady! I actually liked all the sites but I think we are going to go for a super C (if you would like to see one look at the IWS site) about the weight of a class A but like a 18wheeler really extended cad!

  26. Ryan Mclaughlin on November 1, 2019 at 4:18 pm

    Cool thank you Gimbal was just fine perfect

  27. smilinglarge on November 1, 2019 at 4:19 pm

    What kind of dog is River? I think I want one like that.

  28. Travel Small Live Big on November 1, 2019 at 4:20 pm

    Impressive list! We camped in the National Forest North of Flagstaff – fantastic area! One of the reasons we have a smaller trailer is to open up our possibilities and not limit us. Magnolia Beach looks really nice. I think one of our favorite free places is The Alabama Hills along California’s Highway 395 / BLM land – fantastic views, hiking & lots to do.

  29. MrStr81 on November 1, 2019 at 4:21 pm

    Great info, thanks. We just purchased a motorhome and will be starting our adventures this winter. Some great ideas for us.

  30. David Smith on November 1, 2019 at 4:21 pm

    Thank you!

  31. Desiree Hann on November 1, 2019 at 4:23 pm

    Mine is not on your list. I’m not much into walking around w/o something to keep my attention span. IDAHO! MONTANA! have gold panning spots, crystal, sapphire & cool rock digging. Libby Mt. Gold Panning Recr. Area. Kingston Id. Couer d Alene River, Bumble Bee Campground, & Steam Boat FS 400, you can pull in to camp spots all up & down the river. Some spots charge, but majority are free, that are right next to the river & spots all along the creeks that flow into it. Map it on Google. Fishing, River Rafting, Crystal & Gold Panning/digging. The Snake pit BBQ & Lounge Great Food & only 3 miles to Pinehurst. The another 4 towns right on Interstate 90, are within 5-12 miles,with many historical sites, Wallace Id. is famous along with Biggest under ground Silver mine in U.S. Then 26 min. west is the Famous CDA Resort on CDA Lake a wonder in its self. Must check these places out. Emerald Creek South of CDA worlds only Star Garnet digging spot, but have to pay like 10.00. The scenery beats all in seen in the video. This link is just 1 place there is over a 100 more private single spots to just pull into, right off the main paves rd. Or around 5 more like Bumble Bee. Places all over, (no limit on days,) (you can stay all summer.) in North Idaho & Western Mont, just have to Google it. http://www.americanll.com/americanll-campground-blog/2015/3/30/bumblebee-campground-near-kingston-idaho-virtual-tour (PHOTOS)

  32. H Hart on November 1, 2019 at 4:23 pm

    Wonderful collection of reviews walking or setting down lol. As for gimping a little was noticeable. Thanks for the time and reviews of each as there were some I know and recalled them as you spoke of them and some new ones I will be adding to my list. Thanks Guys a wonderful overview of each.

  33. Human Angel on November 1, 2019 at 4:25 pm

    Will not be alone now that you posted this 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

  34. Adriana Avellino on November 1, 2019 at 4:26 pm

    Excellent recommendations!! I hope I will be able to move to the road in one year and your list pushes me into confidently planning for my future full time rving, thank you!!!

  35. Michael Lowrey on November 1, 2019 at 4:27 pm

    Almost 25 years since I was back in Alabama. Almost 25 years since I had Milos or Sneaky Pete’s. This Feb, I will end that streak.

  36. M V. M on November 1, 2019 at 4:29 pm

    Is your #1 in The Valley of The Gods or near it?

  37. Russell Healy on November 1, 2019 at 4:29 pm

    I notice that you have a dog with you anything special you have for crossing state lines (it’s all about the – )

  38. Daniel Johnson on November 1, 2019 at 4:30 pm

  39. Milton Ortiz on November 1, 2019 at 4:31 pm

  40. Ken Robison on November 1, 2019 at 4:35 pm

    Thanks for helping all of us out really appreciate it. Have a great life.

  41. Shelley Pitchford on November 1, 2019 at 4:36 pm

    Terrific commentary on your choices!! We stay hot on SoCal through late into Oct (91 today inland). Nice mornings and nights, but it’s one of the hotter months in SoCal. How are your girls (River included)?

  42. Hal Greene on November 1, 2019 at 4:36 pm

    Great information. Thanks

  43. Living Light RV on November 1, 2019 at 4:36 pm

    Very informative! Thank you!!!   And LOVE that your dog is always on a leash 🙂

  46. Merciful2u on November 1, 2019 at 4:38 pm

    Nice video
    Is that camper a Scamp?

  47. Jefferson Raymond on November 1, 2019 at 4:38 pm

    The gimbal’s good! I think walking heads are a vast improvement over static talking heads. What kind did y’all get? I bought a Moza Air that I’ve yet to use. Not exactly a plug-&-play type of device in general.

  48. David C. on November 1, 2019 at 4:43 pm

    Great Video! So informative and highly useful. Thanks so much:)

  49. TommyLSchmitt on November 1, 2019 at 4:44 pm

  50. Mark Hooton on November 1, 2019 at 4:45 pm
