Default Real Camping Spots?

You guys would obviously know more than I would about this subject, are there spots in VT where I can go camping, NOT at a campground?

Im talking about hiking into the woods a mile or two, and setting up shop for a weekend, being out in the wilderness....

The state parks in VT are very spacious and quiet. Mt Philo is particularly nice. You can also hike and camp any where along the long trail I believe.

Go to the Green Mountain National Forest. Just park and walk into the woods, you won't see many people if you you go off the beaten path and not too afraid of the deep woods. Although, I notice many flatlanders always going to designated camping spots.

in most national forests, you can just go in and set up camp. stays are limited to a week or in some a month. rules apply as far as cutting vegatation, waste dispozel , fires. some rquire permits, but often they are totaly free. more of a regestration thing.
check with the local ranger station for the particulars , in the area you intend to go. often wilderness areas have different rules. and its always a good idea to have a safe call set up for when you come out, or a ranger knowing where you are so they can drag out the bones after the bear eats you.

There are so many places there where you can just pack it in , There are shelters and camping spots there along the AT and long Trail but if you want to go that route and tons of other spots where you most likely wont see anyone.
I snowmobile in VT and the amount of trails there are mind boggling

In the green mountains. Lots of access roads. Old logging roads. Plenty of room to camp.

Every square inch of land in the country belongs to someone... private property, BLM, national forest, state forest, national wilderness, etc. Some of these places require you camp only in pre-designated camp sites, some don't let you camp at all. Sounds like you want national wilderness. Some of them are very strict. If you pack it in you'd better pack it out, and that includes poop in some.

Your best bet is to see if you can find on-line Vt national and state wilderness sites. Perhaps there's even a phone number you can ask specific questions.
