In May 2002 two friends and I walked the Camino Frances, and thinking that it might be crowded, took two small tents. We spent two freezing nights camping wild and after about 10 days, "donated" them to a unwanted belongings box in Villamajor de Monjardin!
There are few ‘wild’ camping places on the Camino Frances as the route passes through many private and state owned farms and vineyards. However, many albergues with gardens or free land allow pilgrims to camp on their property e.g: Rabanal, La Faba, O Cebreirio .
Be careful where you camp if you don't have a ground sheet. Most flat, accessible, open places off the trail are used as toilets!
