    Diego,
    There is no "camping" like I think you are asking about. There are no camp grounds. There are no areas designated for Henro to set up camp or even just tents. You just have to play it by ear each and every day. Look for something hidden and out of sight and hope no one complains. Plus print and take the list of free lodging.

    I walked with young guy who was camping out most nights (and in the winter, so it can certainly be done). He preferred to set up around one of the many rest huts. No one will bother you there. You don't want to camp on private property, even a seemingly empty farm field, without permission, but you might ask as you go.

    My friend also said he camped in or near public parks and other public spaces. If you keep your pilgrim staff in plain sight, i.e. standing next to your tent, it will be obvious that you are a pilgrim. If there is a problem, people will most likely help you find a spot or suggest a suitable one.

    Best of luck.

    John

    I won't post the list of Free Lodging here, but i can and will post a link directly to it. I don't want to post the list here because i would always have to update the list here and on the website if/when i make changes. Double the work. I will keep this link up-to-date, though.

    Until i finish my own list, the best i know of so far is at:
