Maybe don't come here in the summer. It's hot and there are tons of flies. There are also TONS of ticks, which made it impossible for me to bring my dogs hiking. I mean, TONS. TONNNNNSSSSS. We walked about ten feet onto the trail and I pulled about fifteen ticks off my puppy and another eight of my older dog. Nope nope nope. Would be g... more

“Peaceful spot to boondock”

Reviewed Jan 03, 2018

Overall Rating

Heads up that the lower camping is closed from Dec-Apr. We talked to the BLM guy that came by and he gave the okay to stay up in the parking lot. Several other campers stayed up there as well. We roamed in the horse trails and enjoyed the creek. Coyotes howling in the morning. Beautiful and peaceful spot! Absolutely no cell service ... more

We drive a 33 ft class A with a toad. We wanted to dry camp and just have a few days off the grid. This place fit the bill. Their is a parking area and a large loop with campsites and fire rings. Most spots are pretty level. We went on a hike, be sure to wear long pants because of the spiky plants! Come in with plenty of water bec... more

“Beautiful spot - No cell coverage”

Reviewed Sep 25, 2017

Overall Rating

If I didn't work online and have a need for a cell signal, I would have spent a lot more time here. Easy access, beautiful rolling hills and a whole lot of peace and quiet. Went to sleep to the sounds of elk calls and woke up to a gorgeous landscape. It's worth a visit, even if only for one night.

“Odd Little Place off highway 16”

I stayed here Sunday, April 16. I was little worried because I read that this place was not open until the 3rd Saturday in April until third Saturday in November. I looked around for a sign to verify these dates but couldn't find any. Of course, the BLM website is still broken for campsites. I wanted to find a place for the night af... more
