This is a nice low-impact site. It’s a rock outcrop and there are two levels. Its possible to put about three rigs on the bottom, but to be honest it’s not very level and there are more than a few potholes to contend with. The top is the best spot but only fits one vehicle.
The views of the La Sal Mountains are spectacular, and the Abajo Mountains are visible to the South.
The site is not far from Needles Overlook Road and you can hear a bit of road noise, but not enough to bother. Granted, I’m here in October and it could be more bothersome during the summer.
There are three bars of Verizon 3-4G.
If you plan to have fires, please bring a fire pan to protect the rock from burn scars.
