What is remote camping?
Remote campsites offer an experience like no other. Kayak out to a site, hike in with a cart, or hop on your bike and pedal in with your tent. Remote campsites are inaccesible by motor vehicle, but they are a terrific option for those looking to backpack-in, hick-in, bike-in, or canoe-in. They typically have water, a picnic table, tent pad, fire ring, and primitive toilets, and they do not have electricity.
