Nice place to set up. We rode our ATVs around. There are also bike and hiking trails. The road coming in is in great shape with some minor washboard. The spots are spread out so you shouldn’t have any neighbors.

We got here about 4:30 and stayed overnight. We loved it. You are completely by yourself so the kids can scream as loud as they want and your dogs can stretch their legs. There are bullet shells all over the place, livestock poop, and I stepped over a few used condoms but we didn't encounter any hostile locals or anything. I assume... more

“What a view. ”

Overall Rating

Tucked back away from the road and still an excellent cell signal. No one in sight. Just a lot of wind. Lots of burrows in the ground from whatever lives here. Or lived here. See pictures.

Easy access for 33’ rv with toad.

Nothing particularly special, other than free camping with great cell service. We took the first pull out, in full view of the cell tower as per the previous review. At night you can see the city lights. No ATVs during our stay and only light traffic on the road. A boot hung on a fence post and shotgun shells littering the land, accomp... more

The Old Spanish Trail turns off of Highway 160, about midway between Monte Vista and Del Norte. You can use the GPS coordinates, or make it easy: There's a sign for "Old Spanish Trail," and a parking lot where you can unhitch and scout out the road and possible campsites (you'll definitely want to do this, as the road can be rough).
