MI and MN Boondocking in Natl. For.

New to site so I hope I'm in the right place. Seemed more appropriate here than in the boodndocking section. Anyway, I'm looking for recommendations for FREE National Forest disbursed-type camping in the above states. Also, suggestions for things to see on the natural end of the spectrum. We're already planning on things like Pictured Rocks, Tahquamenon Falls, Bond Falls, and the like so some more along those lines would be welcomed.

So many places too numerous to mention. National Forests generally allow dispersed camping most anywhere off the road and not posted for no camping.

When I asked about dispersed camping in my 33' Class C I was told there really wasn't anything suitable. Whether or not the person who told me this was correct is a separate matter, but assuming she was it illustrates my point.

Can not help you with free parking but
Tahquamenon Falls
The lower falls has a nice state park.. Not all RV's will fit on but you might want to check it out.. Been there a few times, Lovely park, beautiful falls, Actually like them better than Niagara for several reasons.
Home is where I park it!
