    Stealth Camping, where do you park?

    I have 2 areas I would like to explore but I have no idea where to park. They both have parking areas, but would you get towed?

    That depends where they are, what they are... And how strict they are...
    Live, Laugh, Love, if that doesn't work. Load, Aim and Fire, repeat as necessary...

    One of the parks is huge, but the area around it is dirt roads with houses every half mile. I just feel like they would call the cops if I left my car there over night. The other one I would have to park in a more residential area and casually walk a dirt road to the trail head. Lots of places in West Mi. to stealth camp.

    I park legally. Usually a parking lot. Never on a parkway.

    I'll use public parking or trailhead lots that are not checked for overnighting or would raise suspicion. I have a few places where I have established a relationship with people who let me park on their land or even in their driveway.
    There's so many ways to do it. I've never once encountered a problem. I only stealth camp state land, never private.

    I've also done the "Drop me off here and pick me up there on Sunday at 3pm" type weekends.

    I run into this often trying to get river access across private land for launching my kayak. I've knocked on doors before and offered $100 for 1 year of access/parking. Sometime it works - sometimes it doesn't. But when it does, I'm assured of access without the crowds often associated with public access points.

    In any case, I would ALWAYS ask before parking illegally or on someone's private property.

    Well...it absolutely depends on the area, how strict etc. etc. but when I am in State Parks and I want to Stealth Camp and I am not registered at a camp site I put a sign on my window saying "My cars battery is dead, I will be back tomorrow afternoon to get this heap out of here". Never had any problems.
