“Beautiful site in the canyon. Best views we've had!”

Reviewed Feb 05, 2018

Overall Rating

We spent 2 weeks here. The forest service road has a warning sign that it's a "mountain road", but it was quite well maintained.

“An oasis in the desert!”

Reviewed Mar 06, 2017

Overall Rating

A great boondocking site right by hiking and mountain biking trails, and 300 yards from a beautiful creek. There is one larger area just North of the Perimeter trail parking lot by a huge oak tree. The space is not perfectly level, but we were able to park two big rigs there comfortably. There are other sites higher up on the road at c... more
