Overnight camping question

Me and a couple buddies were thinking about starting to do a weekend camping trip where we tent out in the ANF at a random area , and small game hunt from that camp site during the day, is this legal? Or are there certain camp sites that you must pay and deal with?

Looks like what you want to do is legal.

You can camp most anywhere you want in the ANF. If not permitted there will be signs. You'd be amazed at how many people use that camping opportunity, especially during the summer. Old log landings are a favorite place to set up. Come hunting season there aren't many people camping other than bear and deer seasons. Remember to practice Leave No Trace, have fun, and enjoy the great hunting opportunities.

Just as an FYI, you cant camp on GC co-op lands, but they will be marked.

Plenty of scouting and good habitat makes for a great hunt.

We camped and grouse hunted this past season in the Loyalsock state forest . There you need to have a permit to camp in a designated spot. Its a free permit but you have obtain it from the park office first.
