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 ...

Well here is the straight scoop from the guy who has lived here and run the place for 31 years. National Park Service regulations state that there is no road-side camping along Zzyzx Road, nor at our facility here at the California State University Desert Studies Center. Visitors are asked to park at the Park Service "Orientation Center" parking lot near the ...

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 ...

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 ...

Most commercial campgrounds have office hours and tend not to be open real late, say 8 or 9pm. But if you have a reservation and haven't checked in by closing time, they will put a note on the office door telling you which campsite is yours and requesting you to come check in after they open in the morning. A fair number of campgrounds will allow you to ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 don'...

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 ...

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 ...

I haven't been able to find anything about leftover canisters. However, you could get a new one at the airport. Not at the actual airport, but at a gas station that is directly opposite the airport. I just called them and they sell a gas canister called the Coleman C500. That's the only one they have. But it might fit your stove. If it doesn't fit, then ...

It's been several years since I've been to Dorst Creek, but based on what I remember... It really comes down to which campsite you have booked. Several of the camp sites in this ground are actually fairly small - much smaller than you'd normally expect in a National Park campground. Other campsites are much larger, especially those on the outsides of the ...

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 ...

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 ...

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 ...

Camping wild is illegal but tolerated, as in Wales & England (here, here and here). Sleeping in your car is legal (here).

There are a couple of campsites near Ghanzi which is about halfway between Gaborone and Windhoek. Thakadu Bushcamp Dqae Qare El Fari Bushcamp Grassland Bushman Lodge Tautona Lodge I can recommend Thakadu which is basic but clean and has a nice bar and restaurant with a waterhole nearby. The camp site of Tautona Lodge is fine too but it is a bit far ...

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. ...

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 ...

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.

To the best of my knowledge, there is no organized camping inside the National Park.

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 ...

Indeed you cannot camp, but you can "bivouac", even in protected areas (for example in the Mercantour, near where I live). This is the same as camping, but: The tent must be set at/after sundown, and removed at/before sunrise You cannot camp more than one night in the same place You should use "light" camping gear, like ultra light tents, tarps, or just ...
