"I recognize the right and duty of this generation to develop and use the natural resources of our land; but I do not recognize the right to waste them, or to rob, by wasteful use, the generations that come after us." -Teddy Roosevelt
Wannacamp was created to provide quick and easy on-the-go access to find campgrounds specifically suited to your needs.
We believe everyone should have easy access to knowledge about OUR public lands for recreating, as well as knowledge on how to be responsible about useage.
The campsites listed are pulled from a database containing 97% of all state parks in North America. Reservations for said parks can be made via reserveamerica.com. There are no federal public land campgrounds listed however, here's something to consider when searching for a campground near federal public land...
(Dispersed camping is available ONLY in National Forest, or BLM land)
Many people enjoy the solitude and primitive experience of camping away from developed campgrounds and other campers. Dispersed camping is the term used for camping anywhere in the National Forest OUTSIDE of a designated campground. Dispersed camping means there are no toilets, no picnic tables, no trash cans, no treated water, and no fire grates. Typically, dispersed camping is NOT allowed in the vicinity of developed recreation areas such as campgrounds, boat ramps, picnic areas or trailheads. There are extra responsibilities and skills that are necessary for dispersed camping. It's your responsibility to know these before you try this new experience.

Public Lands are just that: "Public" meaning for all of us, so it is important to act responsibly while recreating to preserve our treasure for future generations. Once they are gone, they don't ever come back.
"We are prone to speak of the resources of this country as inexhaustible; this is not so." -Teddy Roosevelt
"We have become great because of the lavish use of our resources. But the time has come to inquire seriously what will happen when our forests are gone, when the coal, the iron, the oil, and the gas are exhausted, when the soils have still further impoverished and washed into the streams, polluting the rivers, denuding the fields and obstructing navigation." -Teddy Roosevelt
