Gosh, I'm confused. I read somewhere recently that there were BLM LTVA areas for summer camping. I googled it and this is what I found:
Long Term Visitor Area Permits - Bishop Field Office, Bureau of Land Management, California
Hope that link works. I've read many blog entries of folks who were boondocking in the Bishop area. This web site states"From the first Saturday of March until November 1st, (paraphrased here) people who camp more than 14 day on Bishop Office BLM lands must stay in designated campgrounds & purchase a LTVA permit.
Is this something new? Is there a way around this? The boondocking out in the eastern Sierras looked too good to be true. Maybe it is...
Thanks in advance for helping me clear up my confusion.
