    Hey everyone,

    So I'm looking for a place to primitive camp, for free, that isn't a complete dump and has relatively few visitors to it. I know it's free to camp on BLM land and National Forest but I'm just looking for a little direction. I live in Portland so 150/200 miles in any direction would be preferable. And if there is any climbers reading this give up the beta on the climbing/camping spots.

    Cheers!
    Nick

    Just be careful of old maps. There have been some land swaps between the BLM and the Forest Service in the last couple decades and the rules can be different.

    Thanks for the heads up. Do you know of any areas east of the cascades on BLM that might have river flowing on it?

    Just to the south. Way more than the 150/200 mile spec you asked about.

    Smith rock is an amazing climbing area(though the rocks getting a little hot now), and there is a ton of camping around it too... Also trails for biking and running:thumbup:
