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.

Winter season dispersed camping

Coordinates: 34.90850, -93.21840. This is a nice winter season dispersed site. During the summer, this site is overrun by high grass and weeds as can be seen in the photos. When I visited this site during February a few years ago, all of that stuff was dead and matted down, with easy access to the rock fire ring. This site is located along an unnamed 4WD track just off of Forest Road 83W / County Road 9. The forest road is in great shape; the 4WD track is badly eroded just past the campsite. This track is not on any of the forest service maps (including the MVUM) that GAIA GPS provides. It does show up as a 4WD track on the USGS Topo map. The track may be a good hiking trail for exploring the forest. There is a clearing along the track for parking a vehicle - campervan size and smaller.
