Experience dispersed camping at the Keller Peak Yellow Post Sites. Put on your primitive pants if your planning a stay here. The only amenities that come with these sites is the site itself. That means bring your own water and prepare to pop a squat! Keep in mind, what it lacks in amenities it makes up for in sights, lack of sounds, and peaceful solitude.

For those who don't know Yellow Post sites are FREE. With that means all you get is a table and fire ring. No bathrooms, no water.

This campground runs along the road that takes visitors to Keller Peak Fire Watch Tower. There are 9 sites and only 4-6 are remotely close together. All the others sit far apart. My favorite is site 9, near the summit of Keller Peak. It has the best view by far and it well shaded, but is also the most exposed to the elements sitting high up near the summit and not well sheltered from the wind any direction but west.

That being said these are the place to be when you wanna get away!
