“Free BLM spots with great views ”

Overall Rating

My wife and I found this road using maps we got from the US Forestry Service in Taos. We scouted several roads with BLM's and found spots to dry camp on forestry road 87 which is right off of Interstate 285, about 20 miles South of the Colorado border. This road lies right next to Mount San Antonio. The spot we stayed at is large enough for a big rig and relatively flat. These are “dispersed camping” spots, no electric, water or fire rings, just wide lots, right off the gravel road. Camping is free and limited to 14 days. Elevation was 8,400 feet so temps were in the forties at night and mid seventies during the day. Winds were calm in the morning and evening but we experienced gusts around 20 mph midday so don’t leave your awning out and leave.
There are 2 spots within a few hundred yards of the entrance, the others were several miles back and the gravel road is wash-boarded and pretty rough, but easily passable if you just go really slow. We saw cars driving this road on a regular basis so 4 wheel drive isn’t necessary.
