just 5 minutes off of I-70. Camping spots in Grand Junction, like everywhere else, can be scarce. I was perfectly happy sleeping next to Toby's horse pasture rather than bothering with some of the campgrounds in the area. Or running around trying to get a BLM spot. Loma is right down the road from 3 of coolest places ever (CO Monument, Devil's Canyon and Rabbit Valley). And such a nice family, btw.
This is a great site even if you don't play disc golf. btw if you do play you pretty much have to camp here. This is a huge property. Dan has a great variety of spots to set up a tent. Lost Creek Wilderness is 10 minutes away.
This is a great base camp for all of the rafting, hiking, etc that is close by. Brown National Monument is minutes away. National park hiking (my thing) is 10 minutes away. The site is really easy to get to from 285. It's set up like an RV park, but I was perfectly happy in my tent. If you do have some sort of trailer or RV these spaces are huge (I'm no expert in this area). I will go here again, I hope.
I would follow the Google directions carefully and keep an eye on your mileage. Most of the roads in this area are unmarked. There are RV/ATV/off-the-grid people around. Nothing sketchy. It's a very easy drive to Eleven Mile State Park, Spinney Mountain State Park, and Tarryall from here. I love places like this. It's way different than being surrounded by forest and other campers all the time.
A nice, peaceful site. I stayed for one night, so I didn't really need to leave the camp. The property is big enough that you can stroll (not hike) around for an hour or two. Thanks for sharing your family's special camping spot.
