Free Camoing BLM Land

.note: text below copied from link above:
"
Generally speaking, dispersed camping is permitted anywhere on BLM or Forest Service land unless otherwise posted, usually with the following rules:
In most locations, you must choose a site at least mile from the nearest paved road.
You must not choose a site closer than mile to any "developed facility" such as a campground. (There are some exceptions - BLM often permits overnight stays in picnic areas, for example, whereas the Forest Service does not.)
If you are going to an area where others have camped before, pick a site that's been used before. Plants, soil and wildlife are impacted by new campsites, so using existing ones will minimize your impact.
Camp on bare soil if possible, to avoid damaging or killing plants and grass.
Do not camp within 100 feet of any water source such as a lake, stream, river, or spring.
Do not camp in the middle of a clearing or meadow -- try to make your campsite less visible so that other visitors will see a "wild" setting.
Don't try to level or dig trenches in the ground at your campsite. For tents, pick a site that's already level with good drainage.
Campers, trailers, and other units must remain mobile (i.e. wheels must remain on all wheeled vehicles). Pickup campers may be set on jacks manufactured for that purpose.
Motorized vehicles must remain on existing roads, trails, and washes. Roads or trails commonly in public use cannot be blocked by parked vehicles or by any other means.
Park your vehicle safely off the road, but do not drive further than necessary from the road.
Quiet hours are from 10 p.m. to 6 a.m local time.
Operation of audio devices or motorized equipment, including generators, in a manner that makes unreasonable noise, as determined by the authorized ranger or officer, is prohibited.
The National Park Service noise limit standard of 60dBA at 50' is a good guideline to follow for daytime generator use.
Archaeological or historical properties including, but not limited to, petroglyphs, ruins, historic buildings, and artifacts that may occur on public lands cannot be disturbed.
"Pack it In -- Pack it Out": do not leave any trash behind.
Restore the site to its condition before you occupied it.
Dispersed camping in any given location is allowed for no more than a period of 14 days within any period of 28 consecutive days.
The 28-day period begins when a camper initially occupies a specific location on public lands.
The 14 day limit may be reached either through a number of separate visits or through 14 days of continuous overnight occupation during the 28 day period.
After the 14th day of occupation, the camper must move outside of a 25 mile radius of the previous location until the 29th day since the initial occupation.
Campers must not leave any personal property unattended for more than a specified period, usually from 72 hours to 10 days."

acdfan walked me through the location of this free campsite. "D" is where you turn left to get to the campsite.

http://goo.gl/maps/t4x3Y I haven't ridden this route yet but hope to soon.

What I did not add to this map was... http://goo.gl/maps/XOW21 ... The Route 66 logo(s) are painted on the highway in front of the Amboy gas station.

National Forest Campsites across the USA

List of National Forest campsites in every state, including descriptions and rates (ranging from free to $5 and up, depending on facilities and location).

http://www.forestcamping.com/dow/list/nflist.htm

As someone else pointed out, most of these National Forests allow free camping in non-campground areas too.
