Boondocking in Nevada!

Boondocking in Nevada is plentiful due to the majority of the state being BLM land along with Humboldt-Toyabe National Forest, and Lake Mead National Recreation Area. There is also free camping at Desert National Wildlife Refuge, and there are also free camping opportunities within the state’s wildlife management areas.
