Yes ... but there is no generalized set length of time for all areas ... a ~14 day limit seems to be the current norm for many parks / recreational areas and campgrounds. Some campgrounds, possibly recreation/wilderness areas may require reservations during the summer and perhaps other months ... may be closed during specific dates ... others may be closed to certain types of recreation ... some types of camping areas may require a permit which might denote a length of stay.
*** . for specific rules, regulations and details for outdoor recreation activities such as camping ... you should first visit sites online and/or visit a nearby ranger station to ask questions, find relevant literature & reading materials and area specific information ... (campground hosts also may have pertinent information about camping at specific sites, doesn't hurt to ask first)
