“Great free camping, accessible by 2wd”

Reviewed Nov 10, 2018

Overall Rating

Really great free camping in an area that seems to be pretty limited in choices. I was a little unsure about access given previous reviews but found the road to be fine with 2wd. Our small trailer (with decent clearance) made it back there just fine. The worst of the road conditions are the first half mile and get better after that. Su... more

“Breathtaking ”

Reviewed Sep 23, 2018

Overall Rating

We decided to last minute take a family camping trip. We decided to come here as we had searched and found everyone to enjoy this spot. It looked really beautiful but sounded like it may be difficult to get back to camping spots with out 4x4/AWD/4wd.. Without camper I’d say most 2wd vehicles are capable to get back there but the hi... more

“We got a 35’ trailer in. Extremely difficult. Worth it.”

Reviewed May 24, 2018

Overall Rating

We read all the warnings and decided to try anyways. It was an incredibly tight turn getting through the gate, but we were able to make it with much expert maneuvering. Pro tips: open the gate outward to the road to give you extra turning space. Like others have said, approach from the south. Road is a bit washed out in 2 places, ... more

“The best place I found on my trip”

Reviewed May 14, 2018

Overall Rating

This place was absolutely phenomenal, was there during a near full moon and the whole place was glowing at night, plenty of rocks that would blow your mind, spent hours digging around for fossils and geodes. The ONLY down fall was the group of “painters” that invaded my camp site and privacy at 6:30 in the morning, I’m talking walking ... more

“Great Views!”

Reviewed May 02, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here one night at the end of April and had it to ourselves. The only other person we saw was a researcher for the California Condors in the area who was very nice and taught me a lot about the birds. The access is a little tough and it would be very tough with any large vehicle or trailer, but we made it just fine in our ... more

“‘Warning’ - Really not suited for medium/large trailers – better for smaller off-road-capable vehicles.”

Reviewed Sep 13, 2017

Overall Rating

I thought we’d reviewed this place before, but it seems to have gone missing. So to recap, and repeating what others have said: 1) You need to look out for the exact (unmarked gate) co-ordinates, easily missed (36.78807, -111.6848). 2) It really is wise to try to find somewhere else nearby to park first (not easy, no shoulders on the... more

“Better than expected:”

Reviewed Sep 06, 2017

Overall Rating

We pulled in around 11:30pm. The 2 mile drive on the dirt road from the 89 was a little bit sketchy. Trailers and low sitting cars might have difficulty but it is definitely doable especially with a truck or van. Our van does not have four wheel drive and we made it just fine. Beautiful spot though! Beautiful views of the Colorado Rive... more

“This site is amazing, if you can get in”

Reviewed Jun 02, 2017

Overall Rating

Drive by review. We tried to get the airstream in here and were unsuccessful. The way the shoulder of the road drops off, and the angle of the road beyond the gate prevented us from making the turn with trailer in tow. We gave up and resorted to Lee's Ferry campground as a sad but cheap alternative. Later we came back without the... more

“Amazing Views .. Be Careful Entering”

Reviewed May 12, 2017

Overall Rating

The previous reviews were correct about ingress. You have to go past the gate on the highway, come back from the south, get off the road 300 feet before the gate and stay on the dirt. My 24' B+ got in the gate ok. The road to the sites has some difficult places, but if you are careful it is not too difficult. If there is rain, don'... more

“Entrance impossible to maneuver ”

Reviewed Apr 17, 2017

Overall Rating

This gated entrance is easy to miss yet impossible to navigate into. It's a tight corner paired with a drop off and fence poles on either side. Our F350 and 27-foot rig would not fit no matter what we tried. To avoid the highway drop off we had to drive it off the highway before the entrance and could not make the turn between the fenc... more
