Was the only one there. I stayed on a Tuesday night. I have TMobile and I had no service. My phone said I did but I was not able to make calls or send texts. I now have Verizon.

We camped here about a month ago. We arrived at about 2:00 in the morning! The night sky was incredible! And the sunrise was like none other the next morning! It was so peaceful to camp here, so quite with no one else around. We had service with Verizon here. We would highly recommend this place to anyone. We will be camping here again... more

We stayed here one night just passing through to California. Nothing weird or bad smells but we did find a lot of spent gun sells 45s and 38s from some one target practicing. Many places to camp.

We had a really weird experience here. We followed the road up that goes along and into the mountains past the initial small parking area. We found a gorgeous spot and started to set up camp when we both started to feel ill. We thought it may be heat exhaustion from our few hours of driving in 95 degree heat without AC or possibly alt... more

Follow the directions from previous reviewers to get to the BLM camping area.
