Hey all, I am back for a minute
. I found a new tip to share. When I was in Kernville, CA I happened across several free Forestry Service campgrounds. I thought this was just unheard of, but then again in Mammoth Lakes, CA I found FIVE really nice campgrounds with picnic tables, fire pits and toilets. Soooo, now I ask at the Forestry office and have found that in any
National Forest there are free campgrounds to stay at. If there is no Forestry Service office to inquire at, stop at another "pay" campground and ask the camp host, I have found they know their area and where the free or cheap campgrounds are. I am sooo stoked to share this with you all, I happened upon the info by accident, but it sure is a money saver. Right now I am in MT and sure enough, I am at a free Forestry Service campground for a couple of weeks. I hope this helps you all out!
Oh, also, if you are wondering where to find dump stations, showers, water, etc., again, ask a campground host!
In Mammoth Lakes I stayed at the Glass Creek campground (VERY NICE) for free and learned that at that one you can stay for SIX weeks free! Check it out, it's a beautiful area! Happy travels all!
