“Easy Boondocking in the Great Wide Open - 19' TT”

Reviewed May 18, 2017

Overall Rating

Dispersed RV boondocking and tent camping are simple and free on the Grassland, but make sure you're on public lands. For maps and tips, visit the USDA Forest Service Pawnee National Grassland Office at 115 N. 2nd Avenue, Ault, CO 80610. (You may see a Greely address on older literature, but as of May 2017 it's a nice little facility in Ault.)

Visit the Grassland's most arresting geological feature, the Pawnee Buttes, to enjoy a well-developed trailhead with shaded picnic areas, vault toilets, and level trails for hiking.

It's an hour to potable water, so you'll want to arrive with plenty in the tanks or jugs. Pack in / pack out, use established sites (look for fire rings), be aware there are no services available.
