Did you know that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) oversees more than 245 million acres of land in the U.S.? These public lands are great for camping at little to no cost and offer a variety of outdoor recreation opportunities. While most of these properties offer dispersed camping and boondocking sites, some have more developed campgrounds with RV hookups and other amenities.
Here’s how you can find the perfect BLM campsite using Campendium, and what you should know before you camp on these public lands.
🏕️Filter your campsites. On Campendium, you can filter campground types to only show BLM locations. This way, you can start your campsite search in the right direction.
ℹ️Read reviews. Campendium reviews allow you to see what other campers say about each campground. From campsite images to cell phone coverage, these reviews provide valuable information you need to know to prepare for your trip.
🌲Reuse existing sites. Most BLM campsites are designed for dispersed camping and boondocking, meaning the existing sites are usually only marked by cleared, flat areas where others have set up camp. Be sure to use these sites in an effort to not disrupt the environment.
🗓️Stay limits. On most BLM lands, you can camp up to 14 consecutive days within a 28-day period. Plan your trip accordingly and don’t overstay your limit so others can enjoy these lands as well.
🗑️Leave No Trace. Always abide by Leave No Trace guidelines and pack out everything that you brought with you, including garbage. This way, others can enjoy these lands for years to come.
🔌Developed campgrounds. If you’re not looking for dispersed camping and boondocking sites, some BLM destinations offer more developed campgrounds with hookups and some amenities (for a small fee.) You can use the Campendium app to see what amenities and features each campground offers.
🎣Outdoor activities. BLM land typically offers a variety of outdoor activities from hiking to fishing, biking, hunting, and more.
