How long can you stay?

DH and I are in search for a new MH to get back onto the traveling lifestyle and have discussed our preference to boondocking which we did before but worked at that time so our stays were short. My question is this.
How long can you stay in a federal park, state or public, BLM land? I'm hearing max is 2 weeks, 1 week, and others as long as you want.
Can anyone help shed some light on the subject or guide where this information can be found.

Thank you so much these boards are so very helpful.

Stressed spelled backwards is Desserts.

I could tell you as I've been strictly boondocking for over 10 years!

BUT, it would just be something more that you've read, with no proof of what I say.

So my advice is to just use your search engine to get the official information. Try something like "BLM rules and regulations" or the like, and if you are going to the southwest, look up "BLM LTVA", LTVA being Long Term Visitors Area.

Pretty much 14 days for dispersed camping, 8 months in LTVAs open September to April. Most fee areas don't have a limit unless in very popular area.
