Knowing which parts are actually owned/administered by the Forest Service is really important information. I don't want to plan a whole trip only to discover when I hike in that my ideal riverside camping destination is actually on a private inholding posted with No Trespassing signs and that I'll need to hike a few more hours to get back onto a FS-parcel where camping is allowed. A similar situation happened to me recently, albeit with hiking rather than camping. I had intended to do a loop hike, but as I was nearing the completion of the loop, just a mile from where I had parked, I encountered a No Trespassing sign and had to turn around and retrace my steps adding many miles to the hike. On this particular day I didn't mind the extra miles, but the situation could have been different.
