Loved this place! Easy access on a motorcycle and great areas for primitive camping. There’s a parking lot that can accommodate any size vehicle. Also at least 2-3 bathrooms present. Sam’s Throne is known for being a destination for mountain climbers and you’ll see why... the views are stunning. I will definitely stay here again on my next motorcycle camping trip!

Big rigs beware if you are coming from the north. The road leading to Sam's Throne is not really suitable for any thing over 30 feet. There are a hand full of narrow switch backs and a pretty steep incline. The campground itself doesn't have much room for rigs bigger then 30 feet anyway.

If you are able to get up here, it is worth the trip. The sites themselves aren't much to look at but with just a short hike (less than an 1/4 mile), the views are really incredible This place seems to be popular with rock climbers and wilderness seekers alike.

Most sites are meant for tents but there are few that can handle smaller RV's. There are vault toilets located in the camping area.

We wanted to stay so much longer at this quiet location but had to hit the road again. We will be back!
