“Remote stargazing”

We did not actually stay here, but stumbled on this site when exploring the area. As I couldn't find much about it on the internet, I wanted to give my insight into it.

It is a very remote site, but seems to be accessible from the south, as outlined in the BLM link. The road seemed good enough for an RV or trailer. I would not attempt to get here from Tecopa with an RV or trailer as the road from the west is very rough.

The sight is clean and there is a vault toilet.

I think this would be a terrific sight for stargazing as there are no towns close by. There are also a lot of old mines for exploring in the hills nearby.

No cell service.
