"Most spots are quite small. You're going to be on top of your neighbor"

There aren't really that many spots here considering the length of the road, and the spots are quite small, aside from a few exceptions. Those exceptions tend to look like campgrounds everyone is so packed in. It's Sedona. A lot of people want to... Read more

"Wonderful spot for checking our Flagstaff or for skiing on the mountain."

Att and Verizon worked great here. (I could stream Netflix no problem on ATT the whole time. This is how I judge.) I would advise to NOT go off the beaten path. I had a friend get stuck when pulling into an area to back up. Needed another truck... Read more

"Gorgeous view, can be buggy and trash everywhere. Small area."

I do like this spot. It's not as close to SLC as I'd like, but you have gorgeous lake and mountain views! FREE! So... pick your battles. It can get bad with bugs. I stayed here in early April last year, even had a snow. But I do remember bugs... Read more

"Locals love this spot- VERY crowded in summer. LOTS of unattended dogs."

It's gorgeous. But you have a lot to put up with. The weekends are particularly hairy. It was nice and open when I arrived. That changed really quickly. It gets super crowded. Loud people, barking dogs, dogs coming and peeing on your stuff... Read more

"Good enough internet. Spacious."

This isn't really a 'destination' place for me. I met up with friends who were already there. Trona Pinnacles is nearby which is cool, but this area is not the most picturesque one I have ever been to. This might be why I am lacking in photos to... Read more

"Oops, I didn't check internet before setting up"

Well, this place is gorgeous and interesting. However, you may have decent internet in one spot, and 15 yards away not have it at all. My mistake was not testing before I fully unhitched. Most of my neighbors had no problems. Just check first.... Read more

"TONS of FLIES, but excellent view and spacious"

Yep. We hit the Mega Fly Lottery. Because of a LOT of recent rain, the flies were quite bad. Somehow they seemed to just come from the air. Somehow into your rig. Not even sure how. They must have had fly camouflage on and would be waiting around... Read more

"$10, no potable "

It’s everything you would expect from a dump station. Except potable water. They do you have non-potable water for rinsing, but that is all. Should be five bucks without getting water I would think, but its $10. Must go pay inside and get the... Read more

"Gorgeous views, but a long way down sometimes washboard road"

If it weren't about 5 miles in (?) on sometimes washboard road, I would have given this 5 stars. The coordinates shown for this spot are at around 8000'. Great views, spot on hill up past the spot listed on left has great Verizon. I listed... Read more

"Super dust, close to Bend though"

Only one really good reason to stay here- Bend. Dusty as crap, lots of trees so bad solar, and not the easiest road to maneuver. I and my biz partner both got our 24' travel trailers down close to the end in a somewhat sort of a... Read more

My Great Fail In Taking The Reins In The ‘Travel Planning’ Department

So, yes, Marshall and I stayed in Moab for almost two months. During that time, we met up with some other new-to-us full-time RVers, despite trying to go ‘incognito’ so we could focus on work. Me, M...

Lizard fights, Boy Scouts and the weirdest find EVER on a Joshua Tree hike.
