Default Looking for completely Primitive Camping!



Advertise Here

I just moved to Arkansas and there is some of the most beautiful countryside. My Finance and my self are both prior army and we Prep & continue our survivalist skills. Only problem every time we have gone to a park here there are registered camping spaces and RVs . I don't want to pay for a space to put up my tent with a number I want to hit the wilderness and decide how far and long I want to go before I camp for the night. Shoot we don't even use a tent, we use survival tarps and wet weather shields so other campers look at us crazy. I want something very mountainess but still has fishing. Please someone help me out

Just grab a Delorme Atlas/Gazette and look on the back cover. It has big green areas. Note the grid square the green is in. Turn to the page number in the grid square. It is likely National Forest.

Drive to national forest. Park car out of the way. Hike into woods and camp for up to 14 days at any part of your choosing.(Check national forest website for any special no-camping designations that may be present first).

learn the regs and land designations for your state, its all in there
most states have similar regs
can primitive camp in state forests and federal forests
out west its usually a 7-14 day maximum before requiring a permit,
some sensitive areas may also require a permit
here in the east its usually a 3 day maximum on state lands before requiring a permit
some states have regs on where you can set up a primitive camp, sometimes like 150' from any trail or body of water
also check state regs for parking, in NY no issue parking at trailhead
but in PA no permit is required for primitive camping but require a permit for overnight parking at trailhead,
