Wild camping is a blanket term that encompasses pretty much every type of camping outside of the boundaries of a regular campsite. Camping on a campsite, in your backyard (weve all been there) or in a music festival is just regular old camping. Camping near enough anywhere else is wild camping.
Is wild camping safe?
Take the usual precautions – tell someone where youre going and what time you plan to be back – but otherwise, yes, wild camping is perfectly safe, especially when compared with nights wandering around a busy city.
Where do you poop when wild camping?
Make sure you choose your wild camping toilet site at the very least 50 metres away from any nearby water source, for the benefit of all local wildlife (human and animal) and dig a hole in the ground that is roughly 15-20cm. Enough to cover it properly. Dont poop here!
Is living in a tent legal?
Cities have enacted laws in recent years to prevent homeless people from living in their towns. Its even illegal to tent camp in your own backyard. Even if you own land, with a house on that land, its still illegal in most cases to live in a tent in your backyard.
