I've dispersed camp in the west side of Pawnee National Grasslands and wanted to share that these are in the south side of that area. It's mostly open grassland so can get windy. Both areas in my review were nestled into a bit of a rise so there's a little protection. Both areas can be navigated by most vehicles unless very snowy or wet. There are some ruts in the first location but they can be generally navigated around. I know ppl have expressed difficulty with determining where they can camp so I've enclosed a couple of coordinates for the two dispersed areas. Warning that both locations have been used for target practice. I've stayed numerous times and people are really good about being careful and generally leave when they see me camp - just a heads up though. I've not been woken up by any noise sleeping here. Also, I've included coordinates for both locations and a link to the usda site showing which roads you can camp on and drive down in the Pawnee National Grasslands in general.

The first location is: 40.656873,-104.595398
It is located on Forest Rd 500 which meets the east shoulder of Cty Rd 49
There's multiple sites located near a few trees that are on a hillock visible from 49
You have to open a barbed wire gate to get in so it's easy to miss as it looks like a fence not a gate but the road number and access information is on the gatepost. There's some houses in the not too far distance so not so isolated.

The second location is a little further northwest: 40.768037,-104.667047
It's a small pull in area nestled into a couple of little rises on the south side of Cty Rd 108 and it's west of CR 43 and east of CR 41
If you're coming from CR 43 it's before you cross the 2nd cattle guard and it's on the left.
There are houses (farms) nearby but you're out of view of all of them.
