I’m of two minds about this place.
It’s dry camping with pit toilets for $25 a night when there is lots of BLM land within a few miles that is free and less crowded. Yes the geology is nice and wandering in the canyons is fun but you don’t...
The official Campendium coordinates take you to the best spot on this road (35.316791, -115.544683). We managed to get our 30' trailer into the spot but it took some fancy driving to position it well, and the Kessler road has some rough bits and...
There are a lot of places along this forest service gravel road.

Weekends can be completely full — both campers and ATV riders.
There are about 20 turnout sites along the main road up to route 455, which is the last place anything larger than a car appears to be able to turn around. About half of the...
We actually stayed a few hundred feet prior to these coordinates, at 40.3608588, -109.0048852, after seeing that this particular spot was going to be tough for a thirty foot travel trailer.
There is also another spot, up a short hill, just a...
Great 360 views. No cover. Lots of space. Quiet. Good cell service.
Way better than the common spot at the bottom of the hill.
No facilities at all.
