National Forest Camping: What It’s Like For RV Boondockers


Hi. My name is Curtis with The Fun Times
Guide. Today, I’m going to give you a little bit of a tour of what it is like
to go camping on National Forest lands. Sometimes you are in heavily woods, and
sometimes you are in more open plain like areas. Today I am camped about 50
miles south of the Grand Canyon in an open area that is quite popular for
camping. Some National Forest campsites are quite open and spacious. This one I
am encamped in currently is large enough to handle probably a half a dozen RVs.
Most campsites have a stone fire ring — though this one is much larger than
usual. And, as you can see, across the way there is a group of 5 or 6 rigs camping together at another large open campsite. This is a typical National Forest
camping area. You see there is plenty of open space. Campers can group together if they wish. Or if there is more open area with a more secluded area, they have the
option to be by themselves if they wish. If I look down this way… that is my
campsite nestled in amongst some trees. And I am quite nicely camped by myself. It amazes me how much wildlife is out here in the National Forest. As long as
you have the time to quietly sit back and watch, all kinds of different
creatures will surprise you. The following clips were taken while I was
camped much closer to Flagstaff — and as you can see, it is astonishing the
quantity of wildlife that is out here. There are elk everywhere out here this
morning — must be at least 50 of them. I imagine they are gathering — looking for
new ground to get away from the forest fire.
