Absolutely breathtaking. Be warned, I was there 3 days at the "best view" spot and 3 separate times people just drove up into my camp to get the Instagram-worthy pictures. One group of 2 vehicles even just decided they were camping with me (even though there was a second camp spot about 70 feet away with a fire ring). Very awkward and this has never happened in my 2 years of boondocking. I decided to leave because it made me really uncomfortable. So yeah, spectacular view!

Absolutely stunning view of the Sawtooths. Easily one of my fave spots one 3 years of travel. Road in is pretty easy, some puddles but passable. Not a bunch of sites with views, but more down the road.

Easy spot to get to, city cars can get here but will have a few spots where you'll have to wiggle around holes or runoff. The east side cattle guard is currently the worst part of it, it's getting badly eroded. Earlier you get here the better because there's regular traffic after 5pm looking for spots.

As described - beautiful view of the Sawtooths and isolated

As described in previous reviews DO NOT USE THE US 93 ENTRY unless you have a tuck camper, van or car unless or you are not scared of a few holes which you can avoid in a truck, car or van but will hit in any other vehicle. This rough area lasts for about 1/4 mile and ends after the cattle grid.
The entry off the ID 21 is easy to find marked as FR 653 which is a well maintained gravel road with a few minor corrugations but is manageable, just slow down a bit. It changes to FR 633. We must be in about 3 miles and unhooked the Jeep to scope it out, but we shouldn’t have bothered, plenty of areas to turn our 37’ class a. We set up at the only vacant spot with a Decent T-mobile signal, 3bars consistent. Panoramic views but slightly restricted views of the Sawtooth’s. Reasonably flat with stone fire rings. We had our choice of several sites, some with better views but we need internet, no shade on our site but some have. Quiet with occasional passing traffic on fire road. Did not see any wildlife larger than a chipmunk which was disappointing. 10 day stay limit?

Beautiful, yes. But on a Saturday night there was a huge group of local kids partying. Maybe 7-9 cars, left trash. If you can get it on an off day, worth a visit. Windy up there!

Almost don't want to make this site more popular, but damn this is an awesome site. Beautiful view overlooking the saw tooths and still a quick drive into town.

Regarding the rv warnings from 2020, both entrance sides are fine the road is newly graded in some areas and still has lots of bumps in others but nothing too crazy.

Beautiful views of Sawtooth Mountains! We think we got the best spot. Very flat.

BEAUTIFUL views of the sawtooths. There was a fire ring built out of rocks already at my site, but it gets really windy and is very exposed so having a fire was a little sketchy. The sites are free, no facilities, sign says they allow camping up to 16 days. I went mid-week in early may for 2 nights and there were plenty of spots open but I would assume in the summer it’s pretty competitive. 10/10 recommend this spot.

WARNING: RV access danger, read on.

There are 5 dispersed camping sites down this road (FR 633) with breathtaking views of the sawtooth range. The westernmost sites (not this one) are the best.

However, absolutely everyone knows about this area. Midweek in June and the area was heavily occupied by multi-day stayers who would set up camp and leave for the day. None of the view sites were available, we had to double up in a no-view site.

Standard RVs must not use the east entrance to FR633 (east of Stanley). A deep dip 100 feet from the highway requires very high clearance - it will crush plumbing outlets, generator exhaust, or rip your back bumper off if you have an overhanging back end. Looks like something a local dug to intentionally stop traffic.

West entrance to FR633 was fine for all vehicles.
