[Top 5] RDO Best Camp Locations And Why They're Great

Home in the Wild West

Don’t know where to place your camp?

The Camp is the first and most basic living place in Red Dead Online. As a solo traveler, you can set up your Player Camp to give yourself somewhere to rest in Free Roam. Or you can head to your Posse Camp to share a communal space with other members.

You can use the Camp to cook, craft weapons and tonics by the fire, rest up, access your wardrobe and change your clothing, collect purchased items from a lockbox, and even Fast Travel (if you have upgraded).
