Using Teo's coordinates (thank you sir) we saw a coupla spots before and he nailed it. Level enough had a fire ring, saw zero trash, nice big spot to pull around. Ah yes a lil far off traffic noise but hay free and level with Verizon? Did I mention the bark rating of 5. Room to roam and plenty of groovy snarfs. And on Hwy 50, "The lo... more

“Nice stopover between Grand Junction & Deta”

We were having some strange noise coming from our Truck and this fill the bill to park for a bit and get it sorted. There really aren't a ton of spots here. There is a large parking area just after you exit from the freeway. We went to the gps coordinates listed and that spot was only suitable for vans or tents with no good turnarou... more

“Easy road, quiet boondocking”

Reviewed Sep 26, 2017

Overall Rating

This was a great spot to stop on the way from Grand Junction to Black Canyon NP. I arrived just after sunset and had no trouble finding the road or a good spot. The road in was nicely graded - they are doing some heavy equipment work down the road past where I stayed, so I'm guessing the road is being maintained for that. I found... more

“Great boondocking between Grand Junction & Montrose!”

Reviewed Jun 16, 2017

There's not a lot of information on this area that I could find but it's a great place to explore and spend some time. I didn't feel comfortable pulling my 26' TT quite as far as the posted coordinates although I believe it probably would have made it just fine. I saw Priuses and passenger cars heading down that way. I ended up camping... more

“An Ideal Boondocking Spot”

Reviewed Mar 20, 2017

Overall Rating

Stayed here two nights in mid March. Sign at the junction with highway 50 just says "camp in existing sites, the best campsites are found not made." Probably drove by 10 other sites in my search for the perfect spot. Spot I ended up in was off the Primative Road to the west of the main Escalante Canyon Road. I saw one class A in a spot... more
