Overall Rating

Sauntered into this rather out of the way glade between some lovely large mountains and with plenty of opportunity for shade, solar, or both all at once, to attend a "van gathering."

A van gathering is much like an RV rally but you have a van, there are more tattoos, less deodorant, and the smell of competition hangs heavily in the air.

No services, though it's not a terrible drive to the nearby campground to the north where you'll find out toilets. Service is absolutely not an option but at the bottom of the road in Grant there's decent signal. Taking the road to the north though is worth it. It runs switchback and steep through mountain meadows and big peak views. Maybe not the best road for larger RVs or trailers, but Georgetown at the end / convergence with the formidably daunting I-70 (aka the death of Colorado), is a cute little village with plenty of commerce in the form of outdoor gear, breakfast tacos and craft beers.

PS. Max length is not really 35' as this is a giant open space and though there are designated site numbers, you could back into a site and have a hundred feet or so to work with.
