Dispersed camping is an option for people who want to feel closer to nature while camping. However, it’s important to respect the natural environment when dispersed camping. For example, in drier regions of the country, fire bans are common. As a result, you’ll need to bring deadfall to use as firewood. Also, you’ll need to carry an axe and shovel. Another important factor to consider when dispersed camping is the proper disposal of human waste. Unlike regulated camping, dispersed camping is not permitted near any source of water, so you’ll need to find a way to properly dispose of your waste. This means digging a six to eight-inch hole, preferably away from water sources, and fill it with dirt. Moreover, it’s important to make sure that your toilet paper is dry and is disposed of properly.
