Dispersed Camping Rules:

  • Dispersed camping is allowed within 150 feet of the centerline of an allowed road.
  • The way this is worded, it sounds like dispersed camping is only allowed within one mile of a campground. That doesn’t sound right.
  • Time limit: 16 days, after which you must move 5 miles. Campers may not return to the same campsite within one calendar year.
  • No camping within 100′ of any water source.
  • No camping within 150′ of a roadway.
  • No camping “in the vicinity of” campgrounds, trailhead, picnic areas, etc.
  • No camping in the middle of a clearing or meadow; try to hide your campsite

Designated Dispersed Camping Areas:

CUA seems to stand for Conditional Use Area.


America the Beautiful Senior Passes provide discounts at some campgrounds.
