The RV Vagabond blog definition: "Boondocking, Dry Camping, Dispersed Camping . . . camping in the boonies we used to call it when I was a kid. Back then, we did it in a tent.

Now, most do it in an RV. And it's free or very cheap. The word boondocking got it's origin from a Tagalog word, bundog, meaning mountain. Soldiers in World War II, stationed in the Phillipines, used it to describe a remote, rural or bushy area and when they came home it worked its way into American slang as 'the boonies'.

Now RVers have coined a derivation of it for camping in the boonies without the benefit of docking up to ongoing services such as running water, electricity, cable and the internet. Hence boondocking! Sometimes it is free camping but sometimes not."
