Tree Hugger: Where to find free campsites in Canada and the U.S.. “Camping is the best way to see the world for the least amount of money, particularly if you’re sleeping in a tent and have no need for electrical and water hookups. But, as any camper will tell you, the costs still accumulate…. A frugal alternative is to seek out free (or greatly reduced) campgrounds. These exist throughout the United States and Canada, and they tend to be off the beaten track, which is appealing to travellers who may find conventional campgrounds to be overcrowded. The Internet makes it fairly easy to locate these spots, and by doing a bit of research in advance, you’ll be able to save a chunk of money, while exploring new parts of the country. Check out the following resources if you’re interested in free camping.” This looks weird in RB, but the article is kind of a compendium of databases/collections of info about free camping spots.
