This is quite an interesting topic: is Boondocking (that is camping without hookups (water, electric or sewer) in any location, usually an undeveloped area, without paying to stay there) illegal or is it legal in some instances depending on where you park? Then there is ‘Dry Camping’ which is paying to stay in a campground without hookups or limited amenities.
These websites and blogs discuss these two forms of camping, and where you can locate these types of ‘campgrounds’.

Bob Wells was tired of living the rat race and a life filled with hyper-consumerism–always buying things looking for contentment, but never finding it. Instead, he returned to the original, truly human roots of tribal nomadism. He adopted a life of travel and adventure by living in a vehicle like a car, van or RV and living a life of simplicity and minimalism. He has been doing this for over 14 years and thrives on the freedom and peace that it brings him.
Have a look at his incredible website to be intrigued and inspired to follow your dreams and take steps towards joining the nomadic tribe! Read this article about Boondocking…
A quirky family of four (two humans, two dogs) that love traveling, new experiences, exploring the outdoors, and finding the joy in life. They don’t love being tied down or squeezed into “little boxes” – which is why they decided to sell everything they owned, move into a van, and adventure full time since April 2017. In that time, they’ve learned a thing or two about building vans and living in them. Gnomad Home has grown into a top resource for van builders everywhere.
Their guides have helped many people break out of their comfort zones and embark on their own vanlife journeys – here is one about boondocking…
Jim and Rene sold their home and nearly everything they owned in 2007 to travel the country with their dog Jerry, who lost a leg to cancer.

Melissa and Wade, a fulltime RV traveling couple, show you how they travel cheap without a retirement fund, a remote fulltime job, or a trust fund. Just two middle-aged people who left the rat race for something different. It has been almost 2 years since they hit the road. They have seen 15 National Parks, 20 National Monuments, camped in 21 states, gone to 7 countries and logged 20,000 miles on their RV. And they have $5,000 more in the bank than when they left!

Trebventure is a minimalist family of five, currently living in a self converted school bus. Brandon and Ashley’s mobile app business has been so successful that it has allowed Ashley to be able to stay home with the kids, and pursue the things that she is passionate about: homeschooling, blogging, and traveling. Living small has taken the pressure off of Brandon, allowing him to take time off when he wants, work on projects he loves and work remote. The freedom that minimalist living allows is the best opportunity they have ever been given.
