Looking for a rustic ish spot in VW or Virgina

Hi, I'm going to admit to not searching this forum yet, but I only have signal a few more minutes.
My partner is a planner, I am a wing it gal. I'm currently building a foamie and expecting to have it done in a couple weeks. The original maiden voyage was supposed to have been in the UP of Michigan. The new plan is to head south for Thanksgiving, I'm looking for a 6-8 hour drive from Ann Arbor.
We typically rustic camp with our dogs. We typically avoid state or national parks because it is like camping in a mini city, and also a lot of places restrict dogs.
I would try BLM/freecampsites.net but being a holiday weekend I expect that a lot of those will be taken.
Any suggestions would be helpful. Even though it is out of your area, I would also consider KY or TN spots.
Thanks

If you want no one near you at all, then you are probably leaning more towards private land.. Which that gets more tricky. Typically you need to personally know someone with land who would trust you not to leave trash or destroy stuff.

If you dont find info here for what you need, maybe check out the various state chapters over at Tearjerkers. Maybe someone there has land and is friendly to fellow teardroppers using it.

If you should decide to try the UP trip down the road I can give you a couple boondocking sites. Just PM me someday.
