Boondocking Guide - Dispersed Camping, Dry Camping

One dictionary defines boondocks as slang for rough backwoods or bush country. The term boondocking, also known to RV enthusiast as dispersed camping, dry camping or coyote camping, is used to describe camping in the midst of nature without the use of commercial campgrounds and hookups.


The Boondocking Guide is dedicated to sharing knowledge about the many beautiful and interesting boondocking sites in North America, with special emphasis on western Canada, United States and Mexico. Included are mapped directions to get to boondocking sites located in the United States as well as to plan your overnight rest stops while travelling from western Canada.


Long Term Visitor Areas (LTVA) in Arizona and California are featured for your information as well as some excellent links to other free or low cost sites in North America.  Be sure to click on Dean's List and, for those headed for the Phoenix area, check out the Special Announcement on the Destinations page.


Check the Routes page for Google Maps GPS rest area coordinates and elevations to help plan your trip. You can download and save these coordinates as a POI (Point of Interest) file for your favorite GPS unit or print a hard copy using the Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF).


From the Routes page, you can also access our cellular phone, internet, email and money conversion information.


With your suggestions and input, it is hoped that the Boondocking Guide will continue to be one of the best boondocking information sites on the internet.
