Looking for a true test on your ninja-like dexterity? Get in on the target ranges and off-highway vehicle trails near Ironwood Group Campground. At over 6,000 feet, this site is the perfect spot to grill up some grub and enjoy it around a crackling fire. Toilets are close, but showers are a bit farther. If you can only rough it so much, consider sneaking off to the town of Fawkskin seven miles up the road. We promise we won't tell.

Unless you are avid off-roaders, avoid at all costs. We took a girl scout troop up here, intentionally looking for a group site to avoid interactions with other campers. Having stayed at group sites before, I didn't think this would be any different. We had 4 different groups off off-roaders come and try to intimidate us off the campground. One had the audacity to park and attempt to "share" the site with us. There is a yellow post site down the road and dispersed camping in the area but all were booked. One group started howling and making noises to scare us off at 11pm. Ranger was informed on two different occasions and put the groups on warning. Avoid unless you're an off-roader or like loud, drunk, rowdy neighbors.
