Here are the types of campgrounds that we consider "public" for inclusion in our database:
- Owned and/or operated by some level of government
-- May be contracted out, as are many USFS locations
-- Includes things like regional water districts, etc.
- Owned and/or operated by a non-profit entity such as a museum, conservation group, etc
- Owned and/operated by a utility company, such as PGE
- Owned and operated by Indian tribes – we see the tribe as a governmental agency. However, we do not include tribal casino parking lots.
-Thus boondocking locations on public lands qualify, but not parking lots such as Wal-Mart, Cracker Barrel or truck stops.
Please wait... it will take a second!
