“Beautiful!”

Overall Rating

A really beautiful, quiet place to stay. The dirt road is pretty close to 2 miles north of the Y-intersection where Black Canyon Road splits from Essex Road. There’s two roads in, so if you miss the first, look for the second right after. About 100 yards in, on the right, are several spots. If filled, go another 1/8 or so mile on the main road, and you’ll find a large, level circular spot, which we were able to back our 22’ trailer and truck into. There’s one more large cleared area, another 1/8 or so mile, if the first two are occupied. Weather changes the dirt road, so walk it beyond the first area before driving.

It's out in the Boondocks, you won't be bothered by anyone that's for sure! It's just gravel and a fire pit. Great hiking around and the scenery is beautiful.
