There are many reasons to go stealth when you camp otherwise known as stealth camping.  Some of them are.  You have no choice but to pitch a tent somewhere where camping is normally not looked upon a good light or for your personal protection you have to try not to be seen.  See people walk across the country have problems finding places to sleep but believe it or not it is legal in most locations to camp on public land.  The only time it is not legal to camp on public land is when it is posted no overnight or no camping.  so just because you’re camping stealth style does not mean you’re breaking the law.

Now we go about stealth camping the most important aspect is you leave no trace that you were there.  Which means there is a little bit more work involved in that style of camping.  But in the long run is better for the environment and better for other campers.  You should never build a campfire in those situations.  For those have a tendency of damaging the place and exposure location.
