Stayed here because I was tired of driving in 25 mph winds and based on the descriptions this campsite was protected from the wind. It was not only protected from the wind but was one of the cleanest campsites I have been to in a while. Thank you to whoever maintains this spot.

Excellent access, packed and maintained dirt road. Careful with animals, we saw a coyote and a fox right by the road. We also saw roadkill. Drive slow, high beams at night.

Free campground, good pit toilets, good pads for tents and fairly leveled ground for rigs, though I had to mount my Jeep on rocks to be fully leveled.

No one at this time of year, seems to be. Absolutely no reception, not even text or calls. If you have an emergency, some reception on the road a couple minutes heading East.

Honestly super pretty, lots of trees, which is not abundant in this area.

Free Camping in BLM land. Quiet and peaceful away from the highway traffic noise. An occasional vehicle driving by can be heard on the gravel road, but I can’t see the vehicle.

Campground back open, and still no fee to stay. Pit toilets were also unlocked. No AT&T service. Very quiet and pleasant.

As stated, campground is currently closed due to Covid-19 but there are plenty of primitive camping apots along the road. Just look for fire rings left by others

USFS Campground Closed due to COVID-19, However, Red Cloud Canyon Road has MANY free dispersed sites along the road with stone fire pits and level parking sites. The area is beautiful and I highly recommend, even if the official campground is closed or full, this is a beautiful area with tall pines!

A great little spot up an unpaved but maintained dirt road.

I easily drove my bus and trailer up the road with nary a trouble.

I had the place all to my lonesome for two days and nights during the weekday.

Only two trucks came by while I was there and they quickly went.

The sites are clean with fire rings and tables, plenty of hammock opportunities too.

Shade abounds as do roaming cows.

There are flys but no worse than other else I have camped.

The pit toilets were as clean as pit toilets can be.
