Let me say first that this place is wonderful. Now the downside is if you get here on a weekend or late at night there is difficulty finding a spot away from others. Many of the sites are close to each other and that’s our thing. We kept driving and found the last spot at the end of the road. Perfect!

Great parts are trees, space, picnic table, fire pit, sun for solar, and shade for all else. Bathrooms at trailhead if needed but basic toilet only.

Even in the summer the weather was nice and a welcome perk coming from the heat of Texas. We did stay in Pueblo at the state park prior but it was too HOT and no shade. Crowded as well. Won’t be back to that state park.

We stayed here in early July and the wildflowers were plentiful :-). The weather was fine with temperatures ranging from high 70s to low 50s. We got our big rig in about 1.2 miles down the road for Browns Creek to a site on the left after passing several other sites suitable for big rigs that were occupied. We had wonderful views in every direction. The trail head to Browns Creek was within easy walking distance, and the area all around the creek trail head is nice to just stroll around and enjoy the rushing water. Dispersed spots are available for at least a mile beyond the creek. The road that services this area is generally in fair condition with a few heavily rutted spots to avoid. Tree branches along the road are not an issue but may be an issue getting in and out of sites. Traffic on the road includes day hikers due to the trail head.
Most sites have some slope to deal with but not excessive. We only saw chipmunks, hummingbirds and a few other kinds of birds, but the quiet was amazing and wonderful dark skies at night for stargazing. We will definitely come back to this dispersed camping area. www.ourepicfieldtrip.com
