Awesome established campground. Free, 14 day stay. Each site has a covered picnic table area on concrete. Long road to get to site, but wasn’t too bumpy. Trails nearby to walk. Pit toilets on site. 2 bar Verizon LTE. 3 bar AT&T 5G
Why? By checking in after you’ve visited a place you let others know this place is still functional. You can also add or correct any information.
Fantastic spot! Stayed here twice three nights each. Incredible views, beautiful golden sunsets through the pines. Not too busy even on weekends (though was winter) just a few groups having dinners/campfires and other van campers. Didn’t have the experience of a loud shooting range that others have mentioned, just a couple pops in the distance. Good service (at&t). I’d recommend going through lockwood to get here the roads are better. This pit toilet was clean but also one of the worst things I’ve ever smelled. If you can handle that this place is perfectReport Check-In
Free BLM campground, what more needs to be said. Awesome place, watch fire restrictions and please take your trash out with you. And be warned if you bring water up here in a drought, the bees might want some too..Report Check-In
Wonderful view!! Quite. Largest animal around deer, wild boar. I haven't seen an wild boars yet. Lock and store away any food. Bring what you need from the city - an hour away - or that closest gas station chevron. At Lockwood store (10mins away) there is a cafe opens 6am to 11am. My Prius made it up here. lol Careful driving narrow roads, watch out for other drivers. 1 pit toilet in a nice shed, clean. Good cell service. Covered Picnic tables on concrete slabs and fire rings. Fire restrictions be safe. Weather coming here was 100 at night 64. No chance of flooding 🤔 Leave no trace and enjoy 14 day limitReport Check-In
14 days free camping on BLM land.
Absolutely awesome and beautiful. See pics. Great service with ATT. Views are stunning. Road up is hard packed stone / gravel, just very dusty. There is a big rig trailer up here so that's possible. If you are a large vehicle or towing DO NOT drive past the campsite, I took a drive further down and it gets narrow and there isn't anywhere to turn around.
In the main campsite area I'd estimate there are 4 or 5 with car spaces next to sheltered picnic tables. More with just a table but there's a lot of room so you could just park in front of those ones.
It even has a pit toilet! Occasional sound of distant shooting but nothing major. No trash at all that I can see of.
There is a general store in Lockwood about 8 miles away.
There are places to camp both before (marked by another overlander) and after, but the spots AFTER the official camp site require serious off road capability.Report Check-In
Absolutely gorgeous up here! Worth the drive up the mountain, even the "mountains" of dust! We had no issues in our 25' TT. Great cell signal, Verizon and T-Mobile.Report Check-In
ok. this is a great spot. like really great. but...... as you exit the campground DO NOT turn to the right. why you may ask? because about 6 miles or so up the road you will get to a locked private property gate. If you have a large rig, like our sprinter or any trailer, you will have to reverse uphill for about a mile before you can get turned back around. probably closer to 2 miles if you are towing a trailer.
Our GPS led us that way, and we went back to the campground and warned the bus and 2 trailers that were there. all is good, but to say that was a close one is an understatement.
