If you are flexible about amenities (meaning minimal), than you are likely to find free RV camping sites in the Pacific Northwest. This is great for anyone love sick for an RV camping trick. This is especially important if you are on a limited budget or want to cut down on costs. You can find free dispersed camping at BLM, National Forest and National Grasslands, unless you see signs that say “no camping.”When you are boondocking like this, this means you have no access to full-hookups, so make sure you know how much power your appliances need to keep running. Read some additional information for boondocking here.
