"Like a G Rated Mad Max"

We were a bit apprehensive about coming here because of the recent reviews. We boondock exclusively, and have stayed across our fair share of locations. Honestly this place isn't that bad, but that largely depends on where you decided to take up... Read more

"A magnificent place to "just be.""

We moved here from Alabama Hills. AH is beautiful, but it's way too many people for our likings. The road in is your typical washboard. There's a split off to the right to a campground if that's your thing, but we boondock exclusively. Next... Read more

"360 Degree Views. Very little privacy."

This review could just as well serve as the review for Boondocking in Bishop. We started off by attempting to camp off of Buttermilk Road, but fled (read our review here on Campendium). The City of Los Angeles owns the land up and down Owens... Read more

"Very quiet, very secluded, very far from Vegas."

We loved staying here off Lovell Canyon Road! Maybe it's because it's October which isn't a very busy time of year. Maybe it was the right timing, but we had a totally peaceful and quiet stay, despite being smack in the middle of a junction of 4x4... Read more

"Closed to Camping"

It's odd the last review on this spot was October 12th. We arrived October 25th to find the area full of "Closed to Camping" signs. I left a longer review on the Buttermilk Road listing, but as far as I can tell, there isn't much in the way of... Read more

"Closed to camping, except further back"

We're climbers and boondock full time and were hoping to get a spot next to the boulders. After reading all the reviews and doing recon on Google Maps Satellite, we arrived to a slew of signs that show the area is closed to camping. City of Los... Read more

"Windy, Noisy, and Dirty"

The wind was relentless, so much so that I had to rig rope on the door just to keep it open, to prevent it from being ripped off the hinges. Had to keep the air vents up top closed for fear of those being ripped off. Could not put out the awning,... Read more

"Solitude at its finest"

We enjoy finding and camping in remote backcountry locations. It's always a challenge for us because I work fulltime and need to stay connected. We were looking for an area to kill a week in, and found this spot by doing recon via Google... Read more

"Big Adventures for Little Outfits"

This is the closest, and only spot to boondock near Telluride. The maximum length for this free dispersed campground is 22', however we were able to fit in a 24' motorhome + crew cab truck. The campground is really small, and if you're in a rig... Read more

"Wind, Cows, and Views!"

Staying at the base of Mt Blanc was our first foray into boondocking, and boy was it an experience. We would have stayed the allotted 14 days, but we ran out of things to do in the area. The only real thing to do here is Great Sand Dunes National... Read more
