Something not right?

Description

There are just a few clearings off the side of Forest Service Road. Road is negotiable by smaller rigs as there are a few switchbacks and some uneven surfaces. Very quiet area with scenic views. Name on map is Suicide Pass, doesn’t sound friendly but you won’t regret staying for the night.

WoW ! On est seuls ici, sur le top de la colline. La route de terre est pas fameuse, mais il faut aller lentement et notre van qui est pas 4x4 est montée sans problème. La vue est superbe, j’ai du signal cellulaire 2 barres avec Verizon. Un spot à feu entouré de roches, mais nous n’avons rien allumé car ça semblait sec autour. Merci pour les récentes informations qui m’ont permis de trouver se spot ! J’ajoute 3 photos de notre van ici.

Fantastic campsite 5 minutes (or less) off the highway and total wilderness. I’m here by myself. It’s at the top of a hill with trees and a few nice level spots. My 2WD sprinter was slightly challenged so I wouldn’t drive a big RV up here but most anything else would make it here just fine. It’s the best dispersed camping I’ve experienced on this trip. Many thanks to whoever first found it.

Absolutely awesome location. The road was very graded, and wasn't too steep for a Class C RV of 22ft. Quiet and Nice views

I went as far as the pass. But, came back to the first spur to the left (about half a mile from the main drag.). Everything else was hiding in waste high grass. Suicide Pass Road is in decent shape. But probably not for you if your in a Buick

Looks like this spur went a couple hundred yards out along a ridge for great view. But, too many trees have blown down recently across road. My battery chainsaw could handle one or two. But, there were dozens and it would take all day to clear. Lucky the first 100 feet is clear and good camping.

My son and I visited. Cramped spot for two rigs. Weeds we're high, therefore decided to stay at red shale

Site still here. Dirt road navigable by any AWD SUV with decent ground clearance. Some small ruts but a friend's Honda CR-V had no problem navigating behind my Tacoma. we got rained on pretty hard since it's the wet season. Large swathes of the forest have burned down in recent years it seems, but the trees immediately at the campsite and on the drive up to the site up Suicide pass road are intact. the site is a flat pullout on suicide pass road about a half mile up from the highway. Haven't gone farther but there is likely other locations deeper in the forest down the road. Just needed a place to stop for the night. Could hear some coyotes in the distance for a little while. Writing this as the rain is coming down, hoping we can get out in the morning and have no trouble navigating the road, could be dicey as I'm unsure of how slippery the road could be when wet. Wouldn't recommend camping in the rain if you don't have too. Make sure you don't come here low on gas, Ashland is 50 some miles west and Broadus is 25 miles or so back east. Very sparsely populated and saw one car coming out of the road when pulling off the highway but nobody since. Cell service on the mountain is decent, 2-3 bars 4G Verizon, allowing me
to post this from my tent hiding from the rain. May 29th 2022 - May 30th 2022

Stopped here to scope out the spot. a little narrow and windy going up if you're in a big rig but if you go slow you should be able to make it up. typical forest service road. a bit rocky and rough but definitely passable in a passenger car or a bigger vehicle. only a couple places to pass if there's anyone else coming down when you're going up and vice versa so go slow around the turns. opens up to a nice grassy area. not a lot of shade in the afternoon. If it was a little later I probably would have stayed here for the night but I'm going to move on closer to devil's tower. great stopping point if you're here. very quiet. showing two bars with Verizon but no signal for calls or data. enough room for several vans or a couple of small RVs.

Unfortunately, there was a Forest fire and all of the woods surrounding the road has been burnt. The heat was too much without shade from the trees so we left.

Beautiful evening in a fantastic spot all to ourself! We are in a tent trailer but big enough for larger rigs if you can get up a little bit of a tight road from the highway. Perfect for an overnight between travel days.
