Dispersed Camping

Earl’s Ford dispersed


National Forest

Dispersed (primitive) camping—Dispersed camping is available in multiple locations throughout the forest, and is intended to provide a rustic, less manicured and natural experience. Whether you decide to camp within a Congressionally-designated Wilderness or the general forest area, we ask that you follow the principles of Leave No Trace. By leaving no trace you are reducing your impact to the natural environment and preserving the quality of experience for future visitors. Basic Leave No Trace principles include the following:

Secure all food and keep safe from bears. Do not feed wild animals. Do not leave campfires unattended. Be sure to completely put out any campfire before leaving your site unattended.

In addition to these general rules, Regional Foresters and Forest Supervisors may issue orders which close or restrict use of certain areas when the need arises. The purpose of these types of closures would be to protect human life and to prevent damage to natural resources. Copies of these orders can be found in any Forest Service office. Many times they are posted on the information board at a recreation site, as well.
