“Solitude!”

Reviewed Jun 23, 2018

Overall Rating

(36.7440558,-112.1764837) We read the reviews and went north on FS257 Maybe a mile. The road was dry and pretty good. (Beware if it is wet though. I can imagine it would be sloppy in spots). I crawl anyway, but it maybe took 10 minutes to find a good spot. There were a few along the way, but we wanted farther from the highway. Ni... more

“Solitude”

Reviewed Jun 16, 2018

Overall Rating

We just went up the hill and found an open flat space that was perfect for 2 nights. Close to Jacobs's Lake fuel and convenience stop. Dirt road and some deep ruts, so go slow. Pretty sure you can camp at any site on the forest roads. It says no fires, but that appears to be ignored frequently. We could still hear the hwy a little. We ... more

“Nice forest road camping spot”

Reviewed Jun 06, 2018

Overall Rating

Sunday night stay, 5/13/18 This is a beautiful spot to camp, although due to the elevation, it's still a bit chilly mid-May (at least when we were there). We had no problem driving FR225 in our little van, but noticed the road did a slow climb. Passing the first and second spots closer to the main road (both empty), we drove back ... more

“Beautiful, quiet location”

Reviewed May 22, 2018

Overall Rating

225 has only 3 established sites within the first couple of miles. There are a few other places you can pull off the road, but it’s mostly hilly. 225 is a mix of good, rough and rutted road surface. It is 2WD, and OK for low clearance vehicles if you can get through the long rut at the entrance. Road 257, directly across the highway fr... more

“Great Secluded Spot”

Reviewed May 02, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed here one night in late April and saw one or two passing trucks on the Forest road but that was it. We drove in further in on FR225 than the coordinates listed on this page and found a great spot. There were a couple of rutted out sections of the road but overall was pretty easy to navigate. We camped in a spot directl... more

Great proximity to North Rim. Stayed on Road 257 a... more

“Lovely shaded campsite right near Jacob Lake”

Reviewed Jun 10, 2016

Overall Rating

My husband and I spent two nights here on our journey between the South Rim of the Grand Canyon and Zion. We pulled into the first campsite off 225 as we arrived late and didn't want to spend too much time looking for a campsite. Although we could still see and hear the road from our spot, it was surprisingly peaceful and shady. Jacob ... more
