Primitive Camping is defined as overnight camping where all equipment is transported in limited trips by non-motorized vehicle methods and where a motorized vehicle is not located near or part of the camping experience.
Please view the Primitive Camping Guidelines and Ethics.
Virtually all State Forest lands are open for primitive camping

A lot of the state parks are open for camping for hunting season. Bear and deer seasons included.
Find a state park in the area you plan to hunt. Visit the web site, and you can make an online reservation from there.
Warning!! Due to budget constraints, they limit the number of areas within the parks. The sites go fast! Plan ahead.
DCNR Hunting Info Page
You can register and reserve at any time from now until the time of arrival.
Note: Some camping services areas within parks have not been available during the late camping season. Budget concerns. Be early with reservations. </a>
