Camping on public lands away from developed recreation facilities is referred to as dispersed camping. Most of the remainder of public lands are open to dispersed camping, as long as it does not conflict with other authorized uses or in areas posted "closed to camping," or in some way adversely affects wildlife species or natural resources.

Dispersed camping is generally allowed on public land for a period not to exceed 14 days within a 28 consecutive day period. Camping limitation rules vary per office, please check with your local office for details on camping limitations. In addition, campers must not leave any personal property unattended for more than 10 days (12 months in Alaska). Campsite Selection

Dispersed camp sites are located along most secondary roads and may not be marked. Popular locations can be recognized by the telltale flat disturbed area that has been used as a camp site before. Not all flat spots are sites. If possible, please use existing sites to avoid creating new disturbances. To further protect your public lands, campers must not dispose of any refuse, hazardous materials, sewage, or in any manner pollute the surrounding area.

States may have additional requirements or restrictions for dispersed camping. Please see Regional Information before planning your trip.

Remote, desolate & nearly perfect......

On Thursday (10/12/23)  I left home with the plan of driving to the Virgin Valley Hot Springs via 299/8A to see the Annular Solar Eclipse.  I arrived at the state line a tad later than expected and followed a beautiful graded 'dyrt' road.  The first camp I came across was Fish Spring.  I saw some open spaces and figured things were going to get busy with the eclipse, so I grabbed a spot.  Beautiful simplicity!!!  No real defined spots, but several areas of access.  Some pull-throughs were occupied by RVs, other spots had nothing but a car/tent combo.  One vault toilet was very clean & well-stocked with paper.  I could not find the spring or water spigot.  There is a horse corral but looks to be in poor condition.  A sign requests "pelletized feed only'.  There were only a handful of fire rings and no picnic tables.  This was my camp for 2 nights.  The following day I drove the rough Mud Spring Canyon Rd to the Royal Peacock Mine & Virgin Valley, and on Saturday, witnessed the Annular Eclipse from here.
