"Dump not available 15 Nov 2019 due to construction."

There's a giant rectangular hole right where the dump used to be. The attendant said they're adding a new fuel tank and will put the dump back when that work is complete, but no ETA on when that work will actually be done (and really, I wouldn't... Read more

"Free dump"

Free dump right outside Medicine Lake Recreation Area. It has a non-potable water spigot that wasn't turned on when we were there early July (the campgrounds in the recreation area only opened late June). There's also pit toilets in the dump area.... Read more

"A good option for the area."

This is the only free campground in the Medicine Lake Recreation Area. There are 3 - 4 other campgrounds around the actual lake, but they cost ~$14/night. We stayed in the area, just not at this campground. All the campgrounds in the area just... Read more

"Nice campground but the sites are on the small side."

The GPS coordinates above are a little bit off for this campground. The entrance is actually at: 39.931146, -121.042357. We were planning to stay at here, but decided not to once we arrived. Don't get me wrong, it's a nice little campground.... Read more

"Water spigot was on in July"

The water spigot was turned on when we recently used it. There's a $5 donation request. There's also a large parking lot next to the dump station in case you want to take a break by the lake. It's a really nice area.

"Keep an eye out for CDT thru-hikers in the spring."

We actually got to meet a whole bunch of Continental Divide Trail (CDT) thru-hikers while we stayed here since they all had to walk across the big field we were boondocked at. We even gave one hiker a ride into Silver City when we left. While... Read more

Upper Scorpion Campground Silver City, NM

"Great basecamp for hiking and backpacking."

The park ranger told us we could stay overnight at any of the parking lots in the national monument. We chose to stay at the parking lot at the cliff dwelling trailhead (which wasn't an issue because it wasn't busy during the day time). It was the... Read more

"Clean campground with great access to trails and good views."

The road is washboarded so it's a bit bumpy coming in, but it's not a big deal if you go slow and put your tires in the right spot. It's a small campground with only three sites that have covered picnic shelters and are large enough for an RV (two... Read more

"We arrived too early in the season and the gate was still closed."

We came to scout it out on April 30, but the gate was closed. There wasn't cell signal at the entrance to Oak Grove, but we don't know if there's any at the actual campground. My star rating obviously doesn't mean much since we couldn't get in.... Read more

Blow Your Mind Hiking & Riding Around Bryce Canyon

Bryce Canyon National Park doesn't seem to get as much love as Zion National Park, even though they are about 78 miles from one another. It's understandable - not only is Zion bigger in acreage, but it...
