About

National Forest

Many people enjoy the solitude and primitive experience of camping away from developed campgrounds and other campers. Dispersed camping is the term used for camping anywhere in the National Forest OUTSIDE of a designated campground. Dispersed camping means no services; such as trash removal, and little or no facilities; such as tables and fire pits, are provided. Some popular dispersed camping areas may have toilets.

There are extra responsibilities and skills that are necessary for dispersed camping. It is your responsibility to know these before you try this new experience. Camping rules and regulations apply to make your experience safe, and to keep the natural resources scenic and unspoiled for other campers.

Typically, dispersed camping is NOT allowed in the vicinity of developed recreation areas such as campgrounds, picnic areas, or trailheads. Many people drive out on Forest Service roads into the woods and find a clearing or a spot near a stream or with a view of the mountains. Do not drive on meadows to access your camping site. Drive on existing roads to prevent resource damage. To prevent resource damage please keep your campsite within 150 feet from a roadway.

How to Pick a Campsite If you are going to an area where others have camped before, pick a site that has been used before. Plants, soil and wildlife are impacted by new campsites so using existing ones will minimize your impact in the forest. If there is no existing campsite, then follow Leave No Trace guidelines.

Overnight Dispersed Site on FR83W

Coordinates: 34.90529, -93.27455. Along Forest Rd 83W (also called CR 84). This small site is close to the forest road; can get dusty. Big enough for a truck camper; easy access. Slight downward slope. The site was clean when I visited. Clean rock fire ring. A pond, probably a wildlife watering hole, is a short walk through the woods behind site. The forest behind the site is nice; good area to walk and explore. The FR83W was in great shape; no issues with accessing this site. No hiking trails nearby. No T-Mobile cell service.
