Free camping Israel
Description

Free camping in Israel is legal and popular, throughout hundreds of free campsites across the country.
What is a “freecamping” site in Israel?
A nice campsite near hiking trails, forests, nature reserves or other landmarks. Suitable space to pitch a tent, light a campfire and sleep out for free.

Camping at all campsites on this list is allowed without making a reservation and with no charge.   Just free (:
Free camping is the ancient & smart way to travel around the world.
ifreecamp: Low cost – High experience.

Camping Facilities – such as running water or shade-do not necessarily exist. However, many free camping sites do have running water and other facilities.
Follow our icon facilities bar to choose a campsite that fits your camping standards.
Green icons are resources available on site.
Red icons are resources *NOT* available at this site.
For example, this is the facilities bar of a campsite near Jerusalem called the Nas Harim campsite:

You can learn that Nes Harim is a pretty well-equipped campground.
It offers clean water, picnic tables, shade from the trees, lots of parking including accessible spots, and more.
Marked red, we can learn there are *NO* toilets, showers or power outlets here.
On the other hand, this is the facilities bar of Kasuy Sands campsite:

Located in the Negev Desert, this beautiful spartan spot is very basic.
No water, no tables, no firewood and even no shade. On site, you can find just a sign marking the spot, and some remains of campfire pits.
Anything more that you will need-including water-bring with you!
The best weather for camping in Israel
When choosing a destination for camping in Israel, the main consideration should be the weather conditions. Generally speaking, winter is the time for the south and summer is the time to head north.
For each campsite, you will find this bar on the top of the page, with recommended seasons:

This example is from a site in the south of Israel. You can learn that in the summer you should avoid camping here because of the heat. In winter, you should consider it, depending on how cold it is during the night.

Spring and autumn are ideal, when it’s not too hot during the day and not too cold during the night. Remember that this is general advice, and you should always check out the weather conditions before you set out for camping in Israel.

You can find free camping sites in Israel in many landscapes-from the desert in the south to the mountains up north.
Here on ifreecamp we picked some of the best free camping site in Israel.
