Boondocking is known by many names in the travel trailer industry. You might hear dry camping, off the grid and dispersed camping to name a few. No matter what you call it, those who like boondocking have one thing in common: getting away from it all.
If you’re in a travel trailer, this means you might be the only campers for miles. Seclusion in nature is the key aspect of boondocking. You may find space in an open place on public lands or in approved areas of National Forests and state parks. Or you might find a secluded spot in the midst of a beautiful area and just park. Some folks even find great spaces on private land. (Though, it’s a good idea to ask permission first; many landowners are more accommodating than you might think).
RV parking overnight at a primitive campground in the woods is as secluded as it gets, so when boondocking it’s likely you won’t have the amenities of a campsite like water and waste hookups, phone service, or electricity. But you make up for that with the benefits of seclusion, peace, and miles upon miles of nature. You don't have to worry about a nearby road, other camper's trash and waste, or other people's motorhomes and RVs ruining your views of nature.
