Fave spot is near BW NWR overlooking the dam, really just a pulloff. Great for wildlife watching in the early mornings, not really an overnight spot. There is State land nearby if you want to overnight.  -crofter

Just in case it  hasn't been mentioned, I like the FreeRoam app. It is run as a non-profit and has lots of good info. I have it on my Android phone and tablet. don't know about iOS.
The rangers have always been the most helpful and excited about telling me all the cool free camping spots. My two favorite places are in the Tahoe National Forest. The first one is Rucker Lake. I haven't seen it listed on any map as being a campground, but if you follow the signs to Rucker Lake Road there's a beautiful walk in campground on the lake at the end of the road. Maintained by PG&E. Vault toilets but no running water. The other one is Bear Valley Campground in Sierraville, CA. It's a really small campground but it's really clean and it's about a mile or two from the hot springs.

I said this before but in another thread. The PA state forests have hundreds of free spaces. Fire ring and picnic table only. Cat holes OK. Most are nicely hidden off the forest roads but are easily accessible. You must register with the local PA forestry office and limit to 10 days stay but you can more to another near by. The ranger in Tuscarora state forest (Perry and Juanita Counties) made a list of sites and there the type of vehicles that might not "fit". Tuscarora state forest has over 100 sites in its 90,00 acres and other state forests are bigger.
