Something not right?

Description

Gravel fire road that pulls off from Old Woman Springs Road. There's a couple of pullouts along it as well as a large open area at the beginning of the fire road. I camped here on a Thursday night and did not see anyone else, with just occasional cars going by on the main road. If you drive further down it is very quiet and peaceful, even right by the road was a nice spot. The road is packed gravel, not difficult to drive, most passenger cars should do fine.

Great spot...close enough to the road for a quick pull off.

Report Check-In

I turned off on Santa Fe and turned right on Foothills to a small pullout I could back into. GPS said it was BLM, nice and clean, no garbage which appeared to be closer to 247. I stayed here one night, nice and quiet until about 6 am when a pack of barking dogs showed up. One just stood there barking at my car. No one was around, no collars. I eventually just drove over (the dog followed me part way down the road barking) to the other side of 247 and parked to make coffee before heading over to Joshua Tree.

got there 8:30pm left 8am, no issues, fairly quiet bar minor noise from highway, decent reception with T-Mobile, little bit of rubbish and a small abandoned boat but still felt pretty safe

A stripped and dumped boat on a broken trailer sets the tone, shortly after you exit the highway. There are some flat spots just off the highway, yes. Anywhere you think you'd want to be, like up in the gravel pits where you'd be hidden, is a place where locals have come to dump, shoot, and burn things. One of the worst dumpshootburn spots I've ever seen. Felt like a flat tire just waiting to happen. I wouldn't even bother looking.

There's a smaller sand road out into the desert, before the gravel road heads up a hill. Found one pullout just the size of my (giant, 25') van. Works for a night.

More road noise than I'd expect, but not the worst I've experienced. Three bars 4G on Verizon.

As previously described. A quick dirt road turnoff the hwy about a couple hundred yards in. Several flat areas that could accommodate several RVs and vans on a sandy/gravel surface but I was the only one here last night

Just a parking place so no amenities. Far enough off the hwy so pretty quiet. Beautiful sunrise.

Great quiet road off the highway with plenary of spacious pullout spots. Insane number of stars at night. Watch out for debris further down the road, especially if driving at night. Looks like someone cleaned out their camper and just abandoned all the junk - which had blown around the area.

Blissfully quiet. Plenty of flat space just a few hundred yards in and to the right on a smooth dirt road. Highly recommended!
