Certainly, there are lots of campsites in Finland. Even better, Finland has the concept of 'jokamiehenoikeus' or freedom to roam, and : "One may stay or set up camp temporarily in the countryside, a reasonable distance from homes, pick mineral samples, wild berries, mushrooms and flowers (as long as they are not protected species)." What you might ...

Recreation.gov lists camping and RV sites at U.S. national parks, forests and other federal land. The nightly fee shown is per site, and you're allowed up to the maximum number of people shown for that site. (I've stayed at quite a few of these campgrounds.) When you actually go to book your campsite, the web site will tell you the maximum number of people ...

As with most things about travel in the U.S., the answer varies from state to state and from city to city. Yes, broadly speaking, it's possible to travel in the United States without paying for lodging, but I would not say it is especially easy or comfortable. There are many campsites where the fee is quite nominal (under $20), budget motels in rural areas, ...

For small gas cylinders for camping stoves, the main question is the fitting on the top. They all contain a similar sort of fuel, usually a mixture of butane and propane. Some may have different proportions of these, but it doesn't make much difference, except in really cold conditions. Probably the best and most common type is the resealable, screwthread ...

You expressed your will to camp in Daizetsusan, so my answer will focus on Daizetsusan, see jpatokal's answer for more general information. I have hiked across Daisetsuzan for several days, and camped various different kinds of places: Spots of ground and poles, nobody except other campers. Just put your tent on a spot big enough, and put your bags of ...

You will most likely not be allowed to travel in the car, because it will be shipped on a cargo vessel. You also do not want to do this; because on a cargo vessel you do not have the luxury of a ferry where there is room to walk around, facilities, etc. To my knowledge, there are no ferries across the Atlantic. Your choices are cruise ships (where they ...

The Greek Law Forbids Wild Camping First things first: a Greek law dating from 1976 forbids wild camping. Quoting from an article on The Guardian: Greece Wild camping here is illegal, the authorities preferring to point tourists towards money-making, taxable hotels and campsites. This rule is rampantly ignored, but we're not going to recommend that ...

The way I understand it is that Zzyzx (I love this name) is part of the Mojave Natural Preserve in which camping is allowed, if not encouraged seeing as it is one of the main leisure activities for visitors. Both camping at organised camp grounds, as well as roadside camping are allowed. To this purpose, the Mohave NP Camping regulations explicitly mention ...

See articles R111-32 to R111-35 of the "Code de l'Urbanisme" created by Décret n° 2015-1783 du 28 décembre 2015 relatif à la partie réglementaire du livre Ier du code de l'urbanisme et à la modernisation du contenu du plan local d'urbanisme Camping out of campsites can be prohibited on protected sites, national parks, within 200m of water sources, near ...

I don't have any official source, but a rather extensive experience because I've done this many times to many destinations, mainly in Europe. I've never encountered a single issue. Before doing it the first time, I asked if they would allow it when going through security on a previous flight. The main thing they were worried about was the sharpness of the ...

Legally it is ok to camp almost anywhere in India. I am a local and have traveled a lot (especially South India). I've gone on a 2240 kms motorcycle journey through Kerala, Tamil Nadu and Karnataka on my HERO HONDA PASSION PLUS(2003 edition-silver.) While you are in India, try do/not-to-do the following things: Don't wait for too late to pick a spot ...

France is really dog friendly (small dogs at least) If coming from outside of Europe, you will need to have your dogs medically checked and approved (and probably chipped) and have his own sanitary passport. IMO, I would leave the dog at home; less stress for you, less stress for him BUT. Dogs are not allowed in museums and other public service buildings ...

Although camping in Byron Bay and surrounding suburban areas is not permitted, if you head north of Byron Bay along the Pacific highway there are numerous free parking spots. One of them is the Yelgun rest area. There is also one about 5 minutes north of the Byron turn off. If you go further north, you can also find the Sleepy Hollow rest area even further ...

Resting Tired Travellers vs Free Campers Roadside rest areas are intended for tired travellers and not for campers. Indeed most of them are signposted with "no camping" signs, as are most urban and suburban parking areas. Some rest areas allow overnight stays, and the longest one can stay is 24-hours. The thin line between a tired traveller and a camper ...

I've done this in Thailand, New Zealand, Australia, and the U.S. During the day, the main thing I look for are large-ish clump of trees and bushes off to the side away from foot traffic. I've found these at the side of roads away from buildings and sidewalks, at the far end of low-trafficked parking lots, and other misc. places. I try to avoid city parks, as ...

Indeed it is not specified but in North America, prices are usually per campsite. Sometimes there are extra fees for extra people (typically over 2), extra vehicles (over 1), or extra tents. I could not find anything anywhere on the site stating the price is per campsite, but that page mentions the limit of 2 vehicles per campsite, this one the limit of 8 ...

Most places will stock some form of Butane/Propane mix, either Campingaz or a similar fuel from another supplier. You should be able to pick up the small disposable canisters from most outdoors shops, most petrol stations, and some other stores. Larger places should also be able to do you a replacement big refillable canister. When people in the UK talk ...

The only campsites with facilities that I'm able to find near Hakone are: Ashinoko Camp Mura, right on Lake Ashinoko, which charges ¥1000-2000 depending on season for a tent space (テントサイト) and is accessible by public transport Gotenba Otome Forest Camp #1, which is a flat ¥2000 all year round and is close to inaccessible without your own wheels ...

After some more research myself, I found the Wikivoyage article on the Mojave desert states: The best way to experience the Mojave is to camp. Much of the area is Bureau of Land Management land, with open camping allowed. The Mojave Road Dry Lakes Dumont Dunes Kelso Dunes Zzyzx So it appears that open camping is possible on BLM land, including the ...

In Uganda, outside of the main urban centres, it's hard to find accommodation that's reasonable value for money. Either it's very expensive (and not too bad), or extremely cheap (and quite bad, if not really bad). Or there's nothing at all. Camping inside the national parks is not too much of a problem, though you will have to pay park fees, which, for ...

Lots of campgrounds, especially government run campgrounds and doubly especially low or no cost campgrounds, have limits on how many days you can stay there ...including all state campgrounds in Hawaii. The purpose is to control squatters, not specifically homeless, but folks who prefer to not pay rent or rv parking fees and take advantage of free camping. ...

The Camping page for Yellowstone National Park describes two types of campgrounds: reservation and first-come-first-served. Obviously for the reservation type, you need to make a reservation; at peak times I would expect them to be fully booked. Summer weekends are probably the most popular times of all. For first-come-first-served, you would need to ...

There are no notices posted any where at Sambhar lake that you can or cannot pitch tents there. There is no police or authority present at Sambhar lake to prevent you from doing that either. Legally speaking it is government land and is part of a wild life reserve and you are not allowed to pitch tents there. My advise to you would be to pitch your tents ...

I don't think you will find something as universal as Trivago, Skyscanner, Kayak for campsites but your friendly neighborhood Google can yield some results that will let you book at least some of the sites online: Reserve America HipCamp Recreation.gov - For US National Park Service sites. There is probably more but you should be able to find them on ...

Basically everywhere, as long as you don't pitch your tent where you obviously disturb others. I am honestly not 100% sure about the official rules, but wild camping is very common in Iran. Just google "wild camping iran" and you will find many stories on the subject, e.g. this one.

There's nothing on the site to indicate the existence of any "offical" shops or what have you. As such< I can only presume that availability of gas for stoves will be from the stores located on the various campsites you can use en route, and any other outdoor shops you may encounter along the way. Last time I stopped by any such place, gas from either ...

Camping is totally free and legal in Iran, and so common and popular. At times of long holidays, summer vacations and nowruz (new year 13-day holidays), you will notice many campers around the country. That being said, you better search around for places designed for the purpose, since camping is supported by the local authorities, and in special places ...
