Free Oregon RV Camping
Free Oregon RV camping is available on public lands administered by the BLM (Bureau of Land Management) and the USFS (US Forest Service). Our Boondocking and Dispersed Camping page has information about finding free RV camping locations.
USFS (US Forest Service) and BLM (Bureau of Land Management) have geographical offices that administer public lands. BLM’s are called Field Offices, while USFS calls theirs Ranger Districts. Both BLM and USFS offer fabulous dispersed RV camping locations, but finding them is the tough part. A good way is to ask the folks in the local Field Office or Ranger District to recommend a dispersed camping place. In every case we’ve done this, we have been pointed to good RV camping sites.
Remote RV camping is available at these USFS (US Forest Service) campgrounds…
LAKEVIEW The remote USFS Can Springs Forest Camp may be right up your alley if you have a smaller RV. With an elevation of 6300 feet, this area is great for summer getaways with hiking, horseback riding, and birdwatching. Dismal Creek Forest Camp offers remote RV camping. Check road conditions.
Free RV camping is allowed at BLM’s remote Mann Lake Recreation Area. Open all year. There are restrooms at the boat launch.
We recommend the Oregon Road and Recreation Atlas to find RV camping locations. This Oregon atlas features separate landscape (shaded relief) and recreation map sections. The recreation section shows the public, state, and private lands using different colors to make land administration agency determination easy. Campgrounds, lakes and streams, parks, forests, boat launches, wildlife areas, back roads, and RV parks are just a few of the information areas covered by this Oregon manufactured recreation atlas.
Our Free RV Camping Section has ideas about free camping you may not have thought about.
