For a place to park and sleep, it is 1000 percent better than the Walmart parking lot (unless maybe if it’s raining and gets muddy). It is dark and quiet at night. I was here in August when it is in the upper 90s in the day. Add the smoke from...
There are some outdated pics and reviews on here which are misleading, so I’ll update my experience as of August 12, 2020. The dump station is free. There is a spigot of non-potable water you can use to rinse your tank. You do not need to make an...
First, driving up the “Million Dollar Highway” from Ouray was terrifying for me. No guardrail, no shoulder, sheer cliff drop offs and lots of curves. Driving back down wasn’t as bad because then you’re not on the drop-off side of the road. I would...
Bummer! I stayed here last year at it was legal and great. Now there are signs up staying no overnight parking or camping allowed. They appear permanent and not short-term Covid-19 related, but I’m not 100% sure. It’s still a nice place to park...
I needed to dump tanks and fill fresh water. The Durango area is very limited for these services and the broken water spigot is a huge bummer. Pictures added.

This is one of the easiest to use dump stations there is. There is no uphill battle, no curb to deal with etc. There is a water spigot that says nothing about the water being non-potable. It is city water, so if you have a filter on your drinking...
There are two gates. If you are facing the store from the road, it is the one on the left. You back in to the dump station, so if you have a TOAD it may be hard to reach (if so, maybe call ahead and ask about it). There is no annoying curb or...
Went on a Saturday night and once I got out to where the gps took me, it was only a couple more minutes to find a flat spot in the woods on the right side of the road . You would not want to do this if it has been raining or is expected to rain-...
I think one of the best parts about camping here (other than that it’s free) is that it’s only about 6 miles to the dump station at the Cottonwood Campground in Joshua Tree. The dump is $5. There is also a fresh water spigot and that is free to...
The pros: beautiful place, water spigot that you can use to fill your fresh water tank, awesome dog walk/exercise area, shaded picnic tables, flat parking, clean and safe feeling. Verizon worked well.
The con: Loudest rest area I’ve ever stayed...
