“High Country Cool with a View to Match”
Just North of Mancos, Co. head up towards Transfer Park Campground on County Road 42. Continue past campground, and veer right at the fork towards Jersey Jim Fire Tower. Take Forest Road 350 on right to site.
You’ll find an old camp, just north, on right of road with a break in the trees to the South (37.474245, -108.161591). My 8’ wide trailer made it through fine but check for yourself. If you find it an iffy proposition, there are a few sites just up the road.

Warning, this site is about 10K feet.
The road is close by and this area is popular for ATVs. I’ll take the traffic for this view.
