Dispersed Camping


Dispersed, or undeveloped, camping provides more solitude and an opportunity to “rough it.” There are many camping opportunities in general forest areas as well as in wilderness areas.

Know before you go: Before traveling visit or call the nearest Ranger Station for current fire restrictions and area closures.

Rules for dispersed camping:

  • No wood or charcoal campfires (Read the current fire restrictions)
  • Vehicles must remain on roads and associated pullouts
  • Do not clear vegetation
