Boondocker’s Bible is intended to be a “fact-based” guide to off-grid camping, dispersed camping, and free camping. It’s geared primarily to RVers, van-dwellers, skoolies, and car-campers. Our goal is to present “truthful answers” to questions about boondocking.
Written By Real Boondockers
We’re full time boondockers and road nomads ourselves, living and working from road and wherever we can find open, public lands to set up camp. We love being out in nature, visiting new places, going out on hikes, and calling a new place our home every week or two.
We power our lives with solar panels, battery banks, propane, and water tanks. When we camp, we don’t hook up. We drive our rigs deep into federal and state-owned wilderness and live among the flora and fauna.
We started Boondocker’s Bible to give real world answers to your questions about boondocking. We cite actual state and federal laws and regulations. We tell you exactly what real-world boondockers do, and why they do the way they do it.
Geared for Beginners
Boondocker’s Bible was written with the beginning boondocker in mind. We assume you already own an RV, and may have even boondocked a little. But for the most part, we assume that you currently use your RV at RV Parks and paid campgrounds.
We wrote Boondocker’s Bible to teach you how to find free public lands to camp on your own. We ARE NOT a crowd-sourced directory of reviews. We do publish our list of free campsites that we personally have boondocked. Our goal here is to reveal how veteran boondockers find their own places for boondocking without relying on other people’s reviews.
