You’re already an experienced camper when it comes to camping at developed campgrounds. But what would it be like to turn onto a dirt road leading to a distant mountain range or perhaps out to an isolated desert area leaving most folks behind where solitude and serenity rule? No inconsiderate all night partiers “sharing” their music with you whether you like it or not. No generators. No campsite restrictions for parking your vehicle at exactly four inches from some barrier. No need for reservations. And, typically there are no campsite fees! Of course even off road camping on land under the jurisdiction of the Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, and state parks do have rules. But their rules are usually much less restrictive than those of a developed campground managed by some corporation or other entity. You have much more freedom to choose your own campsite and park your vehicle where you want.
OHV is an abbreviation for “Off Highway Vehicle” and is a term used by government jurisdictions with authority over an area designated for legal use of vehicles for the purpose of traveling literally off the highway. The Beginners Guide to OHV Camping introduces you to the concepts of combining the skill set of off road travel with simple, safe, and comfortable camping. There exists a wealth of scenery in our forests, deserts, and plains throughout our country which are virtually unscathed by development, vandals, and inconsiderate campers leaving their trash behind. The reason these areas remain preserved is the fact that they are only accessible by vehicles designed for off road travel therefore significantly reduces the amount of overall traffic into these areas. Off road camping enthusiasts are very protective of these environments which they visit year after year while introducing new generations of campers to the beauty of the outdoors.
