Mountains & Forests: Primitive Dispersed Camping at its best!

Rent Your 4x4 Camper to Access these Amazing Locations

Want to get away from the California coast, try something different? With incredible places like Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon there are thousands of miles of backroads, plenty of options for camping and of course, spectacular scenery. Locations that your 4x4 camper can access (and which most others cannot!)

The National Park campsites always get booked up months in advance. We can direct you to where there is free camping, which doesn't need to be reserved, in stunning locations (some only accessible in a 4x4 Jeep). We use maps which outline Bureau of Land Management (BLM) areas - these locations are free for camping! So if you haven't booked a campsite in a National Park, don't worry, Funki Adventures will get you really close with the added benefit of some fun primitive or dispersed camping.

The California mountains and forests provide options for both summer and winter, depending on the type of adventure you want.

We can build you a Custom Trip Plan

The sky’s the limit! Tell us what your dream trip would be and we'll make it happen! Whether you're looking for a honeymoon trip for 2, a family adventure or a corporate trip, mountains, deserts, lakes or a combo of them all, we can do it.
