    Dispersed camping takes a lot more effort than camping in a developed campground, but for those with an adventurous spirit, it can be a lot of fun.

    Here are some important points to remember about dispersed camping:

    The maximum length of stay in a forest ranger district is 21 days per year. Please practice good outdoor ethics about camping, travel and behavior while visiting. Dispersed campers are allowed to park within one vehicle length (including any tow vehicle) of a National Forest transportation route and walk into camp. Dispersed camping is not permitted in developed campgrounds and day use areas. Other areas closed to dispersed camping include historical and archaeological sites. Also, be certain that you are within the boundaries of the National Forest before setting up camp. To prevent resource damage please keep your campsite within 150 feet from a roadway. Dispersed camping is not allowed in these areas: within one mile of Pinecrest Basin along 7N83, Clark Fork Road along Hwy 108 between Clark Fork Road and Kennedy Meadows Road Leave No Trace Camping – Camp so no one notices you while you are there, and no one even knows you were there after you leave. Please respect nature and other visitors by keeping noise to a minimum. Always pack out whatever you pack in. No permanent structures are to be constructed to an area, such as building rock-lined fire pits, trenches around tents, or carving into trees. Human waste should be deposited in a hole dug 6 - 10 inches deep and then covered with organic soil. Vehicles are not permitted off of roads, but if you can safely park your vehicle adjacent and parallel to the road and are not blocking the roadway, you may park and camp. Most sites will have a parking spot nearby while other sites may not. Because the footprint of a vehicle can have a large impact to soils, please do not create new “parking spot” for a campsite. Please park in designated or already impacted spots. 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. We want you to learn some of the many reasons to enjoy the quiet and solitude of dispersed camping, it’s up to you to LEAVE NO TRACE.

    Woodward Reservoir, nestled near Oakdale, CA, is a solid spot for those looking to camp close to home. This place has got it all: full hookups for RVs, tent sites, and even spots right on the water if you snag a T-Island site. If you're into kayaking, you're in luck—many campers bring their kayaks and enjoy easy access to the water.

    One of the standout features here is the full hookups, which visitors have found super convenient. The bathrooms are generally well-maintained, and there are plenty of them, some even with showers. If you're planning a family trip, this place is great. There's a market on-site for any last-minute needs, and pets are welcome, so you don't have to leave your furry friends behind.

    The reservoir itself is a big draw. Whether you're into boating, jet skiing, or just lounging by the water, you'll find plenty to do. The campsites are close enough to the lake that you can bring your boat right up to your site after unloading. Just be aware that during certain months, they restrict water contact due to waterfowl activity, but that's a small price to pay for the overall experience.

    For those who enjoy a bit of a social scene, this place can get lively. Some campers love the party atmosphere, especially during holidays when fireworks light up the sky. But if you prefer a quieter experience, try visiting in the spring or fall when it's less crowded.

    In short, Woodward Reservoir offers a great mix of convenience, fun, and natural beauty. Whether you're here for a quick getaway or a longer stay, you'll find plenty to enjoy.
