“Excellent Disbursed Camping”

Reviewed Mar 13, 2019

Overall Rating

We stayed at this dry camping facility 1 night in early March 2019, arriving shortly before sunset and departing before sunrise the next morning. We didn’t get out to see much, because there isn’t much to see except picnic tables and flat open prairie. It is a picnic area operated by the US Forest Service in the middle of a Natio... more

“Beautiful landscape, dark, quiet”

Reviewed Dec 29, 2018

Overall Rating

We stayed for one night on our way through the area. There's enough room to get our trailer turned around (27'), but much longer and you should back in from the road. There are pit toilets, picnic tables, fire pits and grills. We were the only people there, which was not surprising in December. The only viable lights at night were ... more

“Great place for an overnight”

Reviewed Oct 19, 2018

Overall Rating

We were looking for a place to stay in or near the Rita Blanca National Grasslands. We're self contained and don't use the facilities. We stayed on a weeknight in late October in our 25 foot MH. This is a pleasant, free place to stay, near the center of RBNG. It's 0.5 mi off the main paved road through the park. It's a picnic area b... more

“Many warnings of plague in rats and prairie dogs - Moved on”

Reviewed Nov 07, 2017

Overall Rating

On my way through Texas I found this spot in the panhandle. It's pretty far off the main road which can be good, but when I arrived I saw warning signs of plague in rats and prairie dogs and to wear bug spray because the mosquitos were so bad. I'm thankful for the warning signs and decided to move on. It's a very small space where a... more

“Quiet, spacious and clean. ”

Reviewed Aug 28, 2017

Overall Rating

Stayed one night on our way to Colorado Springs. You'll turn off into a dirt road for less than a mile which was fairly wide and leveled. We backed in our 33' fifth wheel with no issues. Public restrooms; picnic tables; some trees and fire pits with lots of avail fire wood.
