“Awsome Canyon experience”

Reviewed May 09, 2018

Overall Rating

We drove there with a 25 foot RV without AWD. You have to drive carefully but you can actually drive far into the Canyon, stay there over night and do beautifull hikings. Never seen something like this back in Germany. One of the most remarkble places on our Journey from the East Cost to the West Coast. Great Country USA!

“Well worth the long drive in!”

Reviewed Nov 21, 2017

Overall Rating

As other reviews mentioned, it is a long 5 mile drive in on a wash board road which is mostly a dry sandy river bed. 4wd was needed for us with a pickup and 30' travel trailer because of the deep loose sand in places. Also, there are TWO skinny tunnels, depending whether you come from the north or south and where you get off the hig... more

“Dark, quiet and worth the trouble to get to for solitude.”

Reviewed Feb 21, 2016

Overall Rating

This area is owned by the Bureau of Land Management. It's a little bit hard to find and the road is a washboard, but with patience and slow speeds, we were able to make it just fine. We did have to pass through a narrow (14'-4" square) one-way tunnel, so beware if clearance is an issue. There were no official campsites, no hookups ... more
