When you’re planning your route, it’s worth taking the time to locate a campsite near or around water—this can make a good camping experience into a great one! Search for locations near either fresh water (a river, creek or lake) or a beach, and you’ll find that having water around you adds another whole dimension to freedom camping.
4. FINDING A CAMP
The use of free camping publications and apps will help identify some excellent waterside locations without much effort. Don’t miss an opportunity to ask fellow travellers, though: their information can often be the most current.
CONSIDER THE ENVIRONMENT
You have probably heard of the saying “leave no trace” and this is applies to the disposal of soiled/grey water, too. Sullage hoses and buckets of washing water need to be kept well away from a watercourse, whether it is above or below ground. Nobody wants to drink contaminated water!
