We feel fortunate to live in a western state where there’s access to so many beautiful state and National Parks, including the often overlooked BLM (Bureau of Land Management) areas for great camping opportunities. If you’re able to sustain yourself for a few days of dry – no services like electricity, water or sewer connections – camping, you should look into BLM camping. What do I enjoy besides the peace and quiet? They’re often FREE! 🙂
BLM lands are most numerous around California and surrounding states like Arizona, Nevada, Colorado, Utah and a few others. For our first night’s stay, I chose the Monolith Garden Trail BLM camping area. We arrived after it was already dark so we weren’t sure what to expect, but the next morning, we were treated to some great views. What’s more, there were easily accessible hiking trails just steps from our RV and there were only a few other campers around.
