Camping and Lodging

There are many campgrounds in the United States, either run by the government or privately owned. Depending on where you are, wild camping should be possible and safe. The Bureau of Land Management (BLM) maintains public land throughout the country and it is legal to camp on BLM land for up to 14 days in any location. A good map will highlight BLM property and can be very useful especially in Southern California. Hostels, couchsurfing and warmshowers are other good options. Some people ask landowners for permission to camp on their property or camp at Churches (with permission).
