Wyoming Free RV Camping And Boondocking

Free RV camping and parking is available throughout Wyoming. National Forest and BLM administered lands offer "dispersed camping". This term is often referred to as "boondocking", but what it means is that you can camp anywhere on public lands for free unless otherwise restricted. Restriction reasons can be for protection of wildlife, delicate resources, heavily used areas etc. Areas closed to camping are signed, but if you are unsure or wish to verify dispersed camping areas, contact the local USFS (US Forest Service) Ranger District, or BLM (Bureau of Land Management) Field Office for details. The following list is only an example of free RV camping locations in Wyoming.

    Free Overnight Parking Ideas

    Here's a list of places to consider when looking for a free overnight RV camping or parking location in Wyoming. We always recommend asking for overnight RV parking permission when looking for a free spot to spend the night. The smaller your RV, the better chances you will have finding places to stay if you choose not to ask permission. If you don't ask permission, you end up "sneaking" into places and hoping nobody bothers you or issues you a trespassing ticket before you move on.

    Be smart and Be Safe...Ask Permission.

    • Truck Stops - Asking permission is usually not a requirement Be considerate of the big rigs!
    • Walmart - Not all stores allow overnight RV parking in Wyoming due to city ordinances. Check store for policy.
    • Nightclubs - Had one too many or just pretending?
    • Grain Elevators - Ask where you can park your RV out of the way for the night.
    • Fraternal Organizations - VFW, Elks etc. may allow members free overnight RV camping.
    • Cemetery - Sounds creepy to us, but we've also heard they may have water available.
    • Fairgrounds - State and County facilities may allow RV camping when not otherwise in use.
    • Parks - City, County, State, and Community parks often have free RV camping.
    • Churches - You can almost make "reservations" by calling ahead for permission.
    • Hotel Parking Lots - Assuming a nightclub/bar is inside, had one too many or just pretending?
    • Truck Terminals - Parking areas for large trucks might allow you free RV camping permission.
    • RV Dealers - Pretty brave to us, but you could fit right in.
    • Cracker Barrel - These nationwide restaurants usually allow free overnight RV parking.
    • Movie Theaters - Too tired to drive home after the late show?
    • Highway Rest Areas - All rest areas allow a few hours of free RV parking, but noisy.
    • Drive In Movies - Got a small RV, park in the back row and enjoy the show. Fell asleep by accident right?
    • Vehicle Repair Shops - Need to see the repairman first thing in the morning?
    • Big Box Retailers - Kmart, Best Buy, Sams Club often allow free RV camping.
    • Roadside Parks & Picnic Areas - The early day version of the rest area.

    As you can see, there are a lot of free RV camping and parking possibilities in Wyoming. If you are not asking permission, it's best to keep a very low profile. If your RV has slide outs, jacks and TV antennas, don't use them so as not to draw attention to yourself. Consider your surroundings carefully and if you feel uncomfortable with the area, move somewhere else.
