The 8 miles of gravel road were dusty, but not too wash boarded. 10-20mph depending on the section, but by the time we pulled in, there was a layer of dust covering the camper & truck. We stayed 4 nights and explored the road by ATV that this spot is off of, (944) which is a loop and took about 2 hours. Perfect blue skies and wonderful temps while we were here mid April. There are two fire rings that are well separated, but you could easily get several rigs in here and not be crowded.

The 8 mile road (red rock road) to get to this site was long and slow going, but completely flat. There are two large areas on the right side of the road. We chose the second area that was near a wash area with bushes. Someone had already made a rock fire ring too. It was flat and easy to turn into and get out of with our 42’ fifth wheel. Do NOT take your camper past the second camping area. The whole loop narrows and is uneven and rough going. It was fabulous. Quiet, open, and beautiful stars!
