“A Good Spot to Stop for the Night”

Reviewed Mar 31, 2018

Overall Rating

A nice little site to stop for the night. I'm really loving this area up here. It feels very secluded yet there's a sense of a connected community. Lots of green which is nice after spending several weeks in the lowlands of New Mexico.

I can get cell service only if I pull out my WeBoost antennae, and even then it's pretty weak. The bathrooms are usable, but not very well maintained (e.g. there's no toilet paper). It's right next to the road so you will hear cars, though they don't go by all that often.

Lots of picnic benches and firepits. There are a couple camping spots for vehicles, but most are across a foot bridge. Luckily it doesn't seem to be heavily used since I'm the only one here on a Saturday.
