Free camping/Dispersed camping/Boondocking???????

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are planning a west coast natl parks trip this june as we posted on another topic.
We have been researching camping options for the natl parks. We ran across a site about free camping "near" these parks that some require reservations to pitch a tent. The more I read the better it sounded. As long as we are willing to drive a little farther and go without some of the luxury like a toilet and shower we could done what they call dispersed camping or boondocking at almost every natl forest.
We would like to know if anyone has a great free camping spots they know of near
1.Kings Canyon
2.Sequoia
3.Yosemite
4.Redwoods
5.Crater Lake
6.Olympic
And please let us know if you have had good experience camping like this.
Thanks.
