Boondocking in Indian Reservation

Is there any special rules or regulation when boon docking in Indian reservation?

Example: register with tribal visitor center? Welcome center? or whatever.

Do I need some kind of special camping permit?

You could ask at the BLM office, but they will probably say that the tribe involved will have their own rules , and you'll end up having to inquire, at each tribal office, if your thinking of more than one location.

Hi Dan,

My bet is that Skip426 is right, varies by tribe/reservation. My experience with the local tribes is that you can forget it.

Just park at the casino

Actual real reply, it is likely going to be up to the tribe that controls that area. Reservations are considered sovereign land under control of the tribe.

Yes you must check with each office. Most are not set up for that to be allowed

the reason i ask about camping at the Indian reservation is; I found a several perfect boon docking site. I found several places that appeared to be abandon picnic area. in front of me is this slow running creek (not a mosquitoes pond either ...hehehe). PERFECT spot to spend a few days. I also know I was Indian reservation because I saw a sign telling me I am entering Indian Reservation. I don't wanna spend a day trying to find tribal head quarter each time I wanna park (for a few days). Chances are good, nobody's gonna bother me. However, I am a law abiding citizen, I respect tribal rules, I wanted to hear from you more experience travelers. (especially if your cover waggon got hit by a flaming arrow... justa kidding)

I've camped on the Pyramid Lake Paiute reservation in northern Nevada in the past. I bought the permit, which I believe was about $9 for the weekend. They showed me a map of places we were allowed to camp, and sent me on my way. We went where they suggested, and found a beautiful beach with only a couple other RV's nearby. We never saw any Tribal Police or anyone else any time we were there. I'd go back, but I'm afraid of taking my Class A motorhome to places where I used to tow my 24' trailer behind my 4x4 truck! The older I get, the less brave I am.

We've boondocked in the CRIT reservation south of Parker, AZ. Unless they've changed, you need a $15 per 24hr permit available from the CRIT (Colorado River Indian Tribes) Fish & Game office located at 1200 Mutahar, Parker, AZ. Their boondocking sites are on the Colorado River on peninsulas. The sites are just "OK" in our opinion. You may have to back into your chosen site quite some distance.

If you are looking for Colorado river boondocking sites, I'd recommend south of Ehrenberg, AZ. This is BLM administered lands with many river front boondocking sites available. If you go, take a big trash sack... Every time we go the campsites have been trashed, but 1/2 hour of "police" work (We called picking up trash policing an area in the USAF) solves the problem for our stays.

We learned to find the tribal headquarters when we were with the French Foreign Legion... hehe.

It is always nice when you have to spend time picking up other peoples crap just so you can have a nice place to visit.

We've stayed on tribal land at Hawley Lake in the White Mountains. You need a permit for the camping and also to fish. I think we got both at the general store. They keep the lake full of trout and we had a great time. The cows are a bit noisy though
