Ghost Town Road Congress, AZ

"Quiet, pretty, no amenities"

At 3,200 feet in elevation, this is a great shoulder season location between Prescott and Quartzsite. It's desert, but not barren. Plenty of cactus and greenish shrubbery. Of course, everything has thorns. The wildlife was also a pleasant... Read more

Willard Springs Road Munds Park, AZ

"Easy access medium density forest, a few degrees warmer than Flagstaff"

I like this place, not much else to say. And yet... This place is big. Large spread out sites among medium density oaks and pines, and some prickly brush thrown in to remind you you're in the southwest. Dusty dirt soil, not particularly... Read more

"A little plain, but nice"

Check the map before you arrive, because FR 1173 has no camping signs posted on every spot as far back as you want to drive. Take the first or second left onto FR 1174/1175 and you'll find plenty of places to camp without restrictions. No... Read more

"Almost perfect, alas, no cell data"

Sitting around 9,000 feet in a fairly dense aspen and pine forest, up a well maintained gravel road is this gem of a site. If alpine forests are your thing, this is a must see. Oh yeah, and there's a pretty impressive ditch a little up the... Read more

"Come for the nails and broken glass, stay to clean up the nails and broken glass"

My particular site may have been an outlier, but I can only rate what I know, so here goes. This is a no frills dry camping site. A fairly decent road follows the "lake" for a couple of miles, until you reach what isn't clearly marked but... Read more

"Beautiful but busy"

My first night at Twin Lakes was spent at the Campendium Camper's Choice 2018 winner Twin Lakes View, but after a long day of driving and another hour of scouting for a spot I pulled in to a nondescript spot with no view, and scraped the side of... Read more

Anvil Camping Area Silverton, CO

"What the NAM?"

First of all, this could just as easily be a review for the Sultan Camping Area as it's 20 feet away on the other side of Mineral Creek. The campground is nestled underneath roughly 12,500 foot peaks on all sides, in a somewhat dense forest of... Read more

"Tranquil camping on the lake, and a lesson in tent pegging"

Just north of Walden is the Cowdrey lake reservoir. Easy access from the highway (road?), far enough away that you can barely hear the noise, but there's little traffic anyway. The lake sits in a vast open plain with mountains many miles away. ... Read more

"Fine for what it is"

I needed to plug in my electric heater for a few especially cold evenings, and for $15 a night I can't complain, and yet... There's a local 'learn to ride' motorcycle instruction group that used the area on the weekend (I'd assume regularly), and... Read more

Antelope Flat Jackson, WY

"Didn't work out for me"

The road is terrible. Deeply rutted. It's in a valley amongst trees so many sites have obstructed to no view. It's small and feels claustrophobic. I arrived around 1 PM on a Wednesday and it was full. I ended up at Upper Teton View and I'm so... Read more
