"Honestly, it's not that bad."

A previous reviewer of this "campground" (it's more like a dispersed area) was very negative about the access tracks. The reality is, when you get out here the tracks branch out widely... and some are better than others. Yes, there are tracks that... Read more

"Nice and remote"

This campground is all that the previous reviewer said - nice views, quiet, and remote. I'm mostly adding my $0.02 to say that there are several accesses to it: two high-clearance tracks through Capitol Reel NP, or Fishlake National Forest road 22... Read more

"Beautiful box canyon"

This is a great little USFS campground near Capitol Reef. Stayed midweek in August and it was very quiet, only one other site occupied. Views up into the box canyon are fantastic. Some of the sites aren't overly level, but that's about the only... Read more

"Nice, but sandy."

This area is quite sandy; we came out here in a 6WD truck camper and it was iffy. There was clear evidence of previous visitors having been stuck. I wouldn't recommend it in anything other than a fairly capable 4x4, but then it's probably OK if... Read more

"The only noise is the Rio Chama"

This area is a bit of an oddity, a USFS-designated "Dispersed Camping Area". What that means is that it has a pit toilet and has had some gravel laid down on the entrance drive, but no other improvements. The "campsites" are informal and have no... Read more

"There are easier free campsites"

Tigiwon Road (FR 707) comes off US 24 just south of Minturn, winds past a mine, then heads up into the mountains. There's a USFS campground (Halfmoon) at the top of the road, 8 miles up, but before you get there you'll find a dozen or so dispersed... Read more

"Free camping in the aspens"

McClure is a nice enough place to stop off during extended travel, or for an easy weekend away if you're more local. It's nothing overly special, however, and not worth going out of your way for. The campground itself has 10 sites nested deep... Read more

"Free dump but water is a hassle"

The dump station itself is great, no complaints there, and it includes non-potable rinse water. The issue is if you also need a potable water fill; there's none at the dump station. We called the visitor center (where the dump station used to be),... Read more
