“Great location and cell reception ”

We enjoyed a week here in the second site, about 100 yards off the highway. Previous reviews has us skeptical about the entry and exit, rightfully so. We scouted the entrance and camp sights before committing. Coming from the east we were able to angle in the entrance but were close to dragging a landing gear. In order to exit without ... more

As far as I'm concerned this spot has everything needed for great boondocking. Multiple spots so people don't have to park on top of each other, good scenery, lots of places to hike right outside your door, and a strong cell signal. Oh, and it's only about a 20-minute drive into Steamboat Springs. The downside is that it's fairly c... more

This isn't a bad little stop over just east of Steamboat Spring about 14 miles. The road is a little rutted but managable. Be extremely careful turning in off the road as there os quite a hump. I almost tore odd my spare tire and bracket pulling in. Had to take it off and hammer it back into shape and then reinstall it. I should have b... more

“Great free spot with close proximity to town”

Reviewed Aug 27, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a great little free camping area about 15-20 minutes outside of Steamboat Springs. It is right off the highway up on the mountain. We used the GPS coordinates listed on Campendium and found it just fine. When you first pull in, you'll notice that the road is very worn and rutted. There is one spot to the right that is very ... more
