Overview of San Lorenzo Canyon Recreation Area Dispersed Camping

Driving north on I-25, take Exit 156 and Frontage Rd (west side of interstate). It was about 5 miles to the first San Lorenzo Canyon sign pointing to the left. Note: Some approaches may take the driver under the highway in a low clearance tunnel.

Accessibility is not guaranteed, always scout ahead before driving down dirt roads.
