“Nice open views”

Reviewed Oct 19, 2017

Overall Rating

The Pawnee Buttes offer a nice scenery change from mountain camping. Nothing life changing but lots of open fresh air. You are in the vicinity of several oil rigs and farms but still beautiful and refreshing.

“14m of rutted road at 5mph to get the trailhead.”

Reviewed Oct 02, 2017

Overall Rating

“crazy getting here... but very quiet and a nice area”

Reviewed Jul 02, 2017

Overall Rating

I was coming up from Colorado Springs and I am convinced I took the worst route possible (103 - 105 - 104 - 111 - 110), because it was me vs the frequent and fast moving oil tankers on these washboard dirt roads until I got to 111 and I needed to travel <10 mph to make it a minor earthquake like experience. I should have gone around t... more

“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... more
