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 ...

I haven't been to Rock Werchter specifically but I have been to a few other Belgian festivals like Pukkelpop (similar in size). There's a few aspects to your question Fun(Music) Hands down the camping area. I've seen on the website that all 10 camping areas are located surrounding the festival area so you'll always hear the music even at your tent which ...

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, ...

The ADAC provides a nice map that allows for route calculation, but also displays all the campsites along a route. I checked your route from Antwerps to the Tatra national park and basically, the campsites along the route are so dense that it doesn't really matter: In Poland, there is basically every 50 to 100 kilometres a camping site directly next to ...

The British Constitution, extending all the way back to ancient authorities like the Magna Carta, informs us that all land in England and Wales is owned, and hence you need the owner's permission to camp out. Having said that, the rambling constituency in England and Wales is quite powerful, and gets outspoken support from the media. Parliament has ...

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 ...

Lock your Valuables Away I think the heart of the question lies in this requirement: keeping my stuff safe Fulfilling this is somewhat accommodation-independent. You could look for luggage storage places -- such as those usually available in train stations -- or lockers -- some festival campsites do have them --, and use those for the valuables you ...

For incoming items (including most of the major meteor streams) coming from the North to Easterly direction, and not too bad for West of North as well (not so good for from the South) East the utterly marvellous location to beat most others is Glover park above the cliffs to the East of St Heliers Bay. You may be able to drive up Waitara Rd and Park - but ...

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 ...

Well, depends on how long are you willing to drive. Of the top eight stargazing spots in New Zealand one is 2.5 hours drive from Auckland: Ngongotaha. Of course, you can just visit the Stardome Observatory in Cornwall Park if you want a short trip.

You best option is to stay at the camping of Rock Werchter (camping tickets should be bought separately, since they are not included in you combi ticket). Camping & food You'll most likely arrive at Leuven station by train. There are a lot of free buses from Leuven, which brings you near the campings. You could best buy some cheap food in a ...

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 ...

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 ...

It will depend on where in Spain, as that is regulated by local government (autonomías). You should ask the local municipality (ayuntamiento) for an authorization, and you will probably be required to pay some form of tax. I've been trying to find an authoritative source but, as Spanish government is so decentralised, regulation is so fragmented that I ...

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 ...

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 ...

Looked in the Chilean Ministry of Tourism site and they have a touristic services search where you can search for campings in specific regions os cities. Searching for Torres del Paine and camping gave me 4 results. Have you checked those camping sites? There is a site only about Torres del Paine including a travel experience that might be of interest even ...

Looked in the Chilean Ministry of Tourism site and they have a touristic services search where you can search for campings in specific regions os cities. Besides that I search the Google and found some others like campingchile which seems a good source, even though I can't be sure of how accurate it is. Mind that Chile is a country with many volcanoes and ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

I've camped 'wild' (for a single night) on a BMW1200GS in 30 countries in Europe and never been questioned. A German police officer told me not to use motorway rest areas because of the danger (to me) of being robbed. "Two kilometres off the main roads and no one will take any notice" he said. I had a police officer in Belgium take me to a good spot to wild ...

I answer myself. After some extensive researching, I've found this blog post in Spanish that says: The visitor center has some confortable huts with beds, bathroom and AC [..] is the only place you can stay overnight, because you cannot camp. Also, it explains that there are crocodiles in the area, so it's not a good idea to camp in the beach even ...

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 ...
