Description

This is a boondocking area along Forest Road 557 in the Carson National Forest. It's about 10 miles north of Ojo Caliente, the famous hot springs resort. You can easily use their facilities for a day, or go hiking there, too. (There's an old mica mine that's pretty interesting.)

Just drive down the dirt forest road, and you'll see a selection of spaces, some sunny, some shady. This is a boondocking spot, so no facilities. Just a fairly quiet place to camp. There was nobody else here when I stayed. A little bit of traffic noise, but quiet at night.

The dirt road in was fine when I was there, but the ruts indicate it could be a problem if it's been rainy.

Latest Check-Ins

Do not agree this is big rig friendly. We tried taking our 42 ft 5th wheel down this road and saw maybe 1 spot we could fit into. And there was almost no where to turn around. Learn from our mistake.

Report Check-In

Lots of options along this road. There’s road noise but you can travel further in to get away from the highway.
