Undeveloped Campsites


Undeveloped campsites are a popular option for RV drivers who want a wilderness experience. In addition, undeveloped campsites are a good backup option when the developed campgrounds are full. Kelso Dunes Mine is the only undeveloped campsite cable of hosting larger groups of RVs. All other sites can accommodate one to several RVs at most. There is a 14 day camping limit. There is no fee to camp at an undeveloped campground.

The list below is a sampling of undeveloped campsites popular with RV visitors. This list is not comprehensive. Many of these sites have limited ability to accommodate multiple RVs or larger RVS. Scope out sites from the paved roads prior to committing to driving there. The National Park Service does not monitor site availability.

Not all RV class size recommendations may apply to the actualities of the undeveloped campsites. Use caution before attempting to drive to any undeveloped campsite.
