There are so many camping options when you Go RVing. In his new series, Jeremy Puglisi will explore different camping options across the country. In Episode 1, he discusses how to go boondocking.

Boondocking for Beginners 

Jeremy's Tips!

  1. Scope out the road in advance if you can to make sure your RV can easily access the camp spot.
  2. Bring your own fun games since you are not at a campground with all of the amenities. 
  3. Make sure you are allowed to have a campfire on the land where you are camping whether it's BLM land, national parks, or a private owner. 
  4. Solar panels help you boondock for longer.
  5. Make sure to kick back, relax, and enjoy nature.
