Beautiful dispersed camping on 18 acres of raw land overlooking the Painted Desert. Quiet, peaceful, secluded. Cars basically never come down this road, you're likely to see more cows than people :) The site is in a great central location. 11 miles to the Petrified Forest entrance off the I-40 and 15 miles to Holbrook for supplies, great eateries and just a good old Route Continue reading...
Beautiful dispersed camping on 18 acres of raw land overlooking the Painted Desert. Quiet, peaceful, secluded. Cars basically never come down this road, you're likely to see more cows than people :) The site is in a great central location. 11 miles to the Petrified Forest entrance off the I-40 and 15 miles to Holbrook for supplies, great eateries and just a good old Route 66 town vibe! The nearest neighbor a half mile away, so you'll have plenty of privacy. Awesome sunsets over the painted desert & brilliant star gazing by night. Free range cows and jack rabbits roaming around. Its peaceful and calm, you're in the middle of nowhere yet right by everything. You can set up your tent or whatever you're sleeping in anywhere on the property you like. The space is 1.5 miles off the Interstate 40. Easy to get to, however the last 1/2 mile is a little bumpy and sandy in spots so be prepared for that. I'd recommend something with high clearance but any normal car should be fine.

Kind of hard to find. There aren’t many places to camp nearby so it’s a good place, albeit a little expensive for a patch of dirt. We camped in a dry pond and there wasn’t a soul in sight. Very peaceful
