FR 291

Down off this back road in VT you can find some beautiful secluded campsites - Yards away from gorgeous running water. No trash or restrooms - Primitive for sure. Prepare for bugs as well. The seclusion of this spot is what makes it. On the weekends some people ride ATVs around here, otherwise it is a sanctuary

Sweet air

Besides the bugs, camping here was as serene as could be. We were privileged to a gorgeous sunset and the sound of running water all night long. Plenty of space for campfire and cooking too. No restrooms or trash, you have to go to the Zealand campground nearby for that.

Oak Creek

Just outside of Sedona off of 89B there are some dispersed camping sites located along Oak Creek. No facilities or restrooms - there is fresh drinking water if you head to a nearby spring. Great at any time of year

Secluded creek camping

Year after year this site becomes more popular, as it is one of the only one with running water out in this stretch of wilderness. It is also the first site off of the forest control road. No services or facilities - Pack it in, pack it out


Driving out to the site was one of the highlights - when you arrive at the Anderson Res your jaw is bound to drop. A gorgeous area for camping, hiking, kayaking - the works. RVs will fit out here as long as you can get em here. Wildflowers will likely still be in bloom as long as you arrive before July. The day was beautiful and the evening was COLD. At the higher elevation, silence is golden. There are a few dispersed sites - PACK IT IN PACK IT OUT - No restrooms or facilities.

Bugs Abound

A short distance from the ocean, you can practically hear the waves crashing along the rocks - We camped here in early August and the bugs we absolutely terrible. TERRIBLE! You could hear them swarming around the tent. High pitched buzzing and all. Down by the water it was at least bearable, but at the site I hardly left the tent. The host of the area was a really nice guy. He even gave us some firewood so we could enjoy the night.The ground is very moist - almost mossy, still a wonderful spot to rest your head in peace and quiet.

All you need

We arrived at East Fork late in the evening, just in time to catch a beautiful sunset. Each site is equipped with RV hookups, picnic tables and a small grill - There are 2 restrooms on either side of the grounds as well. From our site (#11) you could hear the gushing river down below. The host was really nice and led us to a nearby waterfall and overlook the next morning as well! San Juan NF is gorgeous!!

Many Falls

Getting to this site was easier said than done. Be sure not to miss your turnoff before a VERY small bridge. It is a primitive site, no bathrooms or services here, only waterfalls and beauty. The peaceful surrender of this site already has me wanting to go back already. There are several falls, with the biggest being at the northern most end. Start there and work your way down with the water, it makes for a spectacular day hiking and swimming.

Fort Desoto, FL

One night in the designated campground here. Quiet, comfortable, all the hook-ups. Basically right on the water which was pleasant. If you have a kayak or canoe, this is perfect. BOOK AHEAD OF TIME. Unfortunately no swimming but we did rent a kayak and explore the remote islands nearby!

Blue Spring State Park, FL

Stayed in the middle of the week. Sadly this site does cost a bit of money ($34 when I went). RV hookups, electricity, showers and bathrooms all easily accessible. Swimming only in the designated areas of the spring with chances to see tons of wildlife, the water is crystal clear and beautiful. There is also a decent nature walk nearby as well.

Primitive Site Bullard Creek WMA

About 8 miles north of Hazlehurst, GA, on a dirt road turn off just before the Altamaha River, this primitive site lies in solitude amongst the loblolly pines. Besides the people who were really loud camping near us, it was a wonderful space. No water or electric hook ups unless you go to the RV site. There are showers, sinks and bathrooms near the river which is only a short walk from the site. There is a boat ramp there and tubing/floating down the river was a popular activity. Bugs weren't too bad thankfully!!
