On another thread today the subject of stealth camping and Crown land camping came up and I thought I should mention, for the sake of others on these forums, that camping on Crown lands in Canada is legal.
The very reasons I've become interested in hammocking and just purchased my first hammock is that my wife and I go backpacking and canoe-tripping on Crown lands almost exclusively, rather than camping in parks. When camping on Crown lands, one often has to make a bush camp wherever one can and that often means one must pitch one's tent on whatever flatt-ish and level-ish ground one can. So hammocking is particularly well-suited to camping in areas where there are no existing campsites or suitable terrain for pitching a tent.
Over the years we've had friends and fellow camping enthusiasts ask us what Crown land is and how one goes about finding Crown land on which to hike or camp, I've made two instructional videos about crown land and how to find it.
Here are the links for any who are interested in this subject:
