We drove in a few miles from the highway and parked in a clearing just off the gravel road near a wire fence.
I noticed a couple of other spots just before the one we chose, but they had what looked to be abandoned cars/campers. Kinda creepy....
Clean and spacious spots off the beaten path and oh so nice and quiet. However, they’re limited. Overnight camping allowed only where marked (I’ve attached a photo of the signs at each spot.) and only open Sept to Nov.
Beautiful mountains in...
Huge area with many spots to choose from. Careful, some spots are very sandy and require a 4-wheel drive. Some areas of the road are very bumpy, but most vehicles can make it at a slow speed.
There are a few porta-potties scattered here and...
Right off highway 6 on a paved road.
Just a huge lot. There were at least 20 vehicles, many large RVs.
No shade, no privacy, but it was quiet.
Really windy at night.
Watch out for cow pies.
We parked in a dirt lot. Nothing more than that. Happy to have a free place to park and sleep overnight along our journey.
It got really windy at night, but temps were refreshing and comfortable.
Stayed here Tuesday, 9/24/19.
The drive in was easy and paved almost the whole way.
The site we chose was surrounded by trees and greenery, so we had plenty of privacy. However, there was a road above us, so a bit of traffic buzz.
Each site has a table and firepit....
A great, free find with lake access and great views.
The drive in wasn’t terrible. A little rocky and rutted but nothing serious.
Several places to pull off to set up shop. Each lot seemed to have it’s own pit toilet. A huge plus....
A long scenic drive to the campground, and road conditions were good, making it easily accessible. Be aware of cattle who roam freely.
The campground it situated along the water (reservoir). There are about 8 spots, each with its own table,...
Cool spot by the water. Smells and sounds like the ocean. Great view and ambience to sleep and wake by.
Complete with table and fire pit. Plenty of space for tent camping if desired.
Very easily accessible. Clean. Quiet.
The road was surprisingly busy...I guess loggers or like workers commuting to/from.
Not many areas to pull off to park. Maybe we didn’t drive in far enough, but we followed the coordinates from this app so? Maybe go farther.
