Sheridan, Wyo. (July 30, 2013) – A rise in the number of unoccupied recreational vehicles on the Bighorn National Forest has led the Forest Service to increase patrols in the national forest.
Dispersed camping (outside developed campgrounds) in recreational vehicles is allowed within 300 feet of Forest Service numbered roads designated on the Bighorn’s Motor Vehicle Use Map. Between June 1 and September 10 each year, dispersed camping is limited to 14 consecutive days in one location. After 14 days, campers must move at least five air miles from the previous location.
