“Boondocking at its Best Along FR 171”

Reviewed Sep 24, 2018

Overall Rating

FR 171 and the major FRs coming off it are great for boondocking of all size rigs. Even Labor Day weekend had plenty of space for everyone. Obviously the further you get from the Highway (40 or 180), the better. FR 171 actually gets better the further you get away from I-40 and there are more spots. Strong cell signal until you get close way in there close to Kendrick Peak and then it drops off. Check out the Lava River Cave, and enjoy the amazing scenery this area has to offer.

We specifically camped at 35.3755472, -111.8449985 with our 32ft trailer without any issues but there are also great spots before you get that far in. We went in by way of Highway 180 and exited I-40 so I did get a great feel for towing along the majority of FR 171.

“Beautiful forest road”

Reviewed Aug 12, 2018

Overall Rating

We entered from Service road onto a grated road that goes for miles. The road has lots of potholes and a little rough but definitely doable and worth it. There are multiple turn ins and huge campsites. We had a few neighbors but not too close. Lots of shade from pine trees. We were a mile in a could hear trains at all hours. Not too loud but present.
