Blue handle spigot in front of the ranger station. Their green hose was stuck so we just used it.

Slim but enough selection of organic produce and fresh made juice! For those of you that do celery juice, I’m sure they would do it.

This is the loudest Walmart I have been too. In a way the safest as well. The Ren Fest is 15 minutes from here. Don't try the State Parks around here, none of them have pull offs that allow camping. I tried a few different roads around to no avail.

This whole Fort Collins/Denver/Colorado Springs area has little in the way of overnight spaces for overlanders (most is sketchy street or Walmart parking lot type parking, and no rest stops for dozens of miles) so this was an extremely welcome and nice place to stop off. Wasn't bothered, had plenty of space.

Nice established site with good fire pit and opening to sky. Plenty of room for a few vehicles, but it's still one single campsite. Running stream nearby.

Cars go to the right, farther away from road. Beautiful sunset. Weeds to walk doggo around in. Pit toilets and trash cans.

threaded water spigot on a 48" red sandpipe appropriately 20' from the edge of the entrance road. located between metal bleachers and cinderblock baseball sitting place, presently a blue porta potty in front of it. there is a very long red garden hose next to it. water is flowing September 15, 2022. no issues at all for my 24' RV.

as described! eastbound rest stop. pretty close to the main road, so there is definitely traffic noise. and no real dark spots to park, so we had to use our window covers. but clean bathroom and grassy space/picnic tables. water bottle fill station inside. good at&t.

public park with a skate park and sports area by the river. there are two parking lots, one at the top and the other at the bottom. the locals come to lunch after buying from the night market. they are super friendly.

As you cross the bridge continue onto a paved logging road that extends several kilometers. Lots of areas to pull over to boondock. No facilities. Occasional traffic.
Would recommend big rigs stop just after the bridge.
I saw two adults and one bear cub. The first photo was taken on the bridge. The second on the road where I stop for the night. This is the second night in a row I stayed here

We spent 2 nights there without any problem. No noises. Thank you to the owner of the place for his tolerance.

It’s still US$ 35 the economy seat (but is more expensive if you pay in TSh: 100k). There’re a lot of guys trying to sell tickets in the region, and don’t trust them. We didn’t find the Flying Horses (cheaper and longer), so we traveled by Azam in both way.

There is a sign “No camping 10pm - 6am”.

super dark, quiet, and very beautiful view. There are many spots to park, big rig and tent friendly too I think. Some pot holes on dirt road in, about 1km in so not very bad. I would stay here again and highly recommend it. Although, it looks like there's some construction going on right now, it may be noisy on some week days in the morning if they're working.

The RV parking spots are coned off and a ranger came by pounding on the door on my RV while I was eating dinner (I had been there for ~20 minutes) telling me I was parked illegally (across a few standard spots, as the RV spots were blocked with cones) and needed to move a cone out of one of the RV spots to park. Never seen coned off RV spots at any other national park, and this was the first negative interaction I've ever had with NPS staff. Parking lot was mostly empty otherwise with 50-60 other standard spots available. Watched another van come through and stop up a couple times obviously confused about where to park and not wanting to move a cone. Got the impression they maybe don't like RVs at GSD NP cause there was no reason to have the RV spots blocked off and doubly no reason to pound on my door in an empty parking lot. Watch out!

Fabulous Mexican supermarket with authentic, prepared foods of all types including fresh juices. It’s really like being in Mexico. Lovely experience.

Worked fine. Road noise wasn't bad. No complaints except for mosquitos. Strong 5G AT&T coverage.

There is NO ROAD HERE. It's a permanent barrier and there's absolutely no hint of a road heading East past this barrier. But mapping apps must be outdated because they all seem to show this road continues east into Idaho. It does NOT! It's a dead end at this spot. You'll have to backtrack. I ended up circling up around north.

What a place! Lots of pieces between the pine trees or on pitches in the sand to parc your van. There are some hikers to the near beach. You can go up a cliff like we did for a phenomenal view on the beach. Please don't leave your trash. A lot of people do here.

We had a really hard time here, with our car w/o german TÜV. As we knew of Serbia, asking for TÜV stamps, we got in contact with the Ministery of Interior and the Police Headquarters.
We asked, if we can enter Serbia w/o TÜV, when the car is street-safe, registered and insured. We got an email, that every car w/o TÜV can enter the country, as long as the restrictions above are fullfilled.

The officers didn't care and I complained for 2 hours. One of them asked his friend , a "German Police-Officer" and this guy should have said, that w/o TÜV, our car is not registered anymore, which is completely bs!

I could prove, that our car is registered, but then it was the insurance.
I could prove that as well and they called the german insurance.
Then it was the safety of the car and so on and so on.

At the end - when they didn't had any arguments anymore - they still insisted in the TÜV stamp.

That said; better take the next border, 19 KM up north.
There it took us 6 mins to enter Serbia, w/o any asking about the TÜV,

TIP: Do NOT remove the sticker, when it is outdated. They will see it anyways in the car-papers. Do NOT give them wrong/fake documents. They checked all of ours.

They won't accept kinda TÜV-check from Romania (I offered them). They said, it needs to be a Serbian check (which is... well... you know whatta say: BS)

After two hours and a lot of communication, we gave up and turned around.
