Quite unusual in the US. This was my home last night: Sundale Park.

    I thought I heard on the news that several NATIONAL Parks were waiving entry fees? I’m nowhere near one (except the The Great Smoky Mountains). And NOT near enough to that one!

    but WHICH particular 14 days is it? and does that change from year to year? can i take one here and one there, but not to exceed 14?

      It’s always 14 days (or whatever the time limit) in any one stretch. I’ve used Don Wright’s Guide To Free Campgrounds for years to find free and cheap camping. Free camping usually provides no water. I have a friend who camps several months annually (she has a gorgeous, beach-front home) and claims to have paid a fee only once.

  5. Weve got lots of free campsites here, one of my free spots is rarely used and breath taking..because everyone doesn’t realize it’s free…I think thats the issue I know of at LEAST 30 here in Montana and a few in WA & OR..we are all just suckered into thinking pay is the only way to go….

    Well good I’m glad. I hope there were some other people around as well to talk to. What fun to find free camping. I guess you hit the right time or maybe just the right park. Good anyway it is.

    I used to “live” in the national forest in Colorado for the summers, having to move my tent every 14 days…
