Free Wyoming RV Camping And Boondocking
Free Wyoming RV camping is available throughout the state. 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 Wyoming RV camping locations.
