Interesting how so many folks have such different opinions on what "boondocking" is.
I started googling the subject and found similar opinions on various RV forums.
It seems we humans see things as we want to, or what ever suits our particular point of view. Maybe not what they are in reality.
So I broke down the word to boondocks, which does have a definition.
Merriam-Webster : defines "boondocks", 1. rough country filled with dense brush 2. a rural area : sticks
Oxfords : Definition, 1. Rough, remote
, or isolated
So do Walmarts, truck stops or RV parks or even some campgrounds fit these descriptions? I would have to say, no.
So to be "boondocking" one would have to be in the "boondocks".
Once again another opinion, the best description for me would be:
Dispersed, Dry Camping, Self-Sufficient in a remote or isolated, ruff country.
