The most beautiful place I’ve ever camped! Surrounded almost 360 degrees with Mountain Views. Very remote off some dirt roads. My AWD car had no issues. Christiana’s directions were perfect and we had no issues finding the spot. Also very primitive—just a bench and fire pit available. The posting was clear about this so this wasn’t a surprise to us and exactly what we were looking for. I plan to come back and camp here again. There are 2 camping spots next to each other. For full privacy, try to rent both spots.

The views were very beautiful. The campsite was so quiet and clean. There was a fire pit and a bench in our campsite. We got camp chairs so it was pretty perfect. I also had service (T-Mobile) so that was also cool. I was able to check in with some friends and family. 100% recommended!!

Great spot, loved that there was a fire ring and bench to use! Good places near a bit of a hill to pitch your tent which helps to block some of the wind blowing through camp. Reflectors on the posts at the entrance would really help I think, otherwise directions to the location were spot on! Loved that there were no people in sight and rarely any traffic. Nice place to unplug.

Thanks for the advice regarding reflectors! Next time I am out there, I'll add them :)

It’s a great place to find some solitude out there. All the campground were full of RV’s and tent campers. If you want something by itself in the middle of it all this is the place. A flat spot to pitch a tent, a bench and a fire ring. Everything you need and nothing you don’t. I’ll be back!

Super quiet campsite, loved how big the sky is out here! Was a great spot to post up for a quick visit to the Sand Dunes. Would definitely recommend if you want peace and quiet and lots of space to yourself.
