When my husband and I started RVing, we kept hearing the term boondocking. What is boondocking?
After a bit of confusion, we learned that boondocking is when you camp without hookups. Most of the time, it’s when you’re camping remotely and don’t have a town to rely on.
I know it can sound a little scary to think about being far out in nature, but it’s actually very safe. I did a post about boondocking safety. The ultimate conclusion is that it is safe. However, it might not be as easy as hanging out in a campground.
When you’re in a campground, you at least have a bunch of other campers around you. When you’re boondocking, you’re often off on your own. It can give you a big feeling of freedom, but it might also feel a little lonely when you sit there and feel the seclusion.
A lot of people refuse to do anything but boondock because they don’t like campgrounds, and some are exactly the other way. You just have to figure out how you feel about it.
Campendium did a good video about boondocking that I’ll put below so you can check out more about boondocking for beginners.
