Nice and peaceful. I was there in early October, and only three other campers were there. Hiked the dogs up Fred Canyon Rd for a couple of miles, nice, easy hike. There's a trail also leading out of the CG, up the creek. It's fairly well marked, but dense, and I don't know how far up it goes.

It's about a five mile drive up a lonely road from highway 8, and the solitude shows. The price is right for dry camping. It's a nice stop if you're going to or from SD to AZ.

I did not have any cell service, either Verizon or Sprint.

Cibbets sit about 4000' and it was almost completely empty when I was there after xmas. It was super quiet with only three other campers. Nestled in the trees and along the creek made this a great little spot that I enjoyed. Vault toilets weren't the cleanest I've seen but the were a far cry from the worst, so acceptable. There was a notice about the water but it was just an advisement so I used it for cooking and my coffe, it was fine. Very limited Verizon reception, in the perfect spot and holding your tongue right with the stars aligned I kinda got a bar....
