Appears to be under BLM management now. No signage.
Great place to stay! The spots were spaced out, the area was clean, not too much noise from the highway. BEWARE - of pipes in the ground in the camping spots!!!
Great spot for the night. We stopped here Mamorial Day weekend and there were spaces still available. The gravel/dirt road is accessable for all vehicles and there were parking spots large enough for RVs along with a grassy area for tent camping. There appeared to be some more permanent residents staying along the road and in the loop. The spacing of spots was great our dog was able to run around without interacting with others staying here. Some highway noise but beautiful view of the valley.
It has a dirt road with few bums. Basically just a long road with an oval at the end. People park inside or outside the oval shaped road. Quiet except for animals. There was only about 5 campers when we went 5/2022
Side of the highway but not visible due to high dirt burms/growth. Very nice natural setting with a circle of cut outs for vehicles. Also a road continues north.
Campsite has flat spots, some vegetation, and nice views. The night sky is marred by the light from a nearby travel stop and there is a constant drone of interstate noise. It was really windy, something about the way the vegetation can’t really cut the wind. Our tent wasn’t in perfect shape when we got there, but the wind snapped a pole around 2 am. I expect it’s frequently windy. The best part is the petroglyphs at the entrance. With informational displays. Would cano here again if I was passing through, but wouldn’t make a point of it.
Nice mountain views, but some background highway noise. Former campground, only the pads are left. Gravel road in good shape. Petroglyphs on the way in. Easy access for quick overnight stop
Pretty great spot for convenience. This is BLM land so it's free camping. It used to be a state park but it reverted back to BLM and the state removed all of their improvements. You can certainly hear the freeway at night but it's not really a bother it's a dull background noise. The views of the mountains are incredible. We are at the end of the campground section about 1 mile or so in. After this graveled section of the road there's a dirt continuance that is badly potholed. This road continues on to what are supposed to be Indian Rock petroglyphs. We will hike down there today. We have three bars of Verizon service here. Definitely would use this again as a stopover or a short time campground.
Great hard packed road to get in and the old campground is in good shape. Some of the sites are still as well established but there is plenty of open space to pick from. Had no problems with getting or out during thunderstorm with RWD van. Stayed around Halloween. There are some houses nearby and the highway with a Flying J but this was a good spot for a night that wasn't a parking lot.
Got my 40' 5th wheel in here very easily. We were the only ones here the first night and have seen a few more people come. But there is so much space we don't hear or see them.
Verizon cell service is pretty good here. Can hear freeway noise and train traffic, but it isn't too bad.
Also, it's pretty close to a flying j
The road really is potholed but I made it in. Only one other camper in the whole place on a Sunday night. The petroglyphs are in the first pull-through site as you come in, which was where the other camper was. It's a big enough pull-through that I stopped on the way out in the morning to look at them without disturbing the people. My site was about the first or second as I went through the loop, flat and still in good shape. Looked like it had been a utility site.
We are in a great spot with excellent Verizon service. The view is spectacular. It’s quiet and a nice walking trail. We can hear a little highway noise but it isn’t a bother. There are about 8 sites here. We have a 44 ft bus and had no problems
The road in is unpleasantly moon cratered but it's worth it cell service is strong and there are nearby restaurants and gas stations. Be prepared for strong winds if tent camping.
Visited this site out of curiosity, didn't stay overnight here. The access road into here is severely pot-holed. If you are towing a trailer or driving a motorhome, it's going to be rough going. The actual abandoned campground is overgrown. It is still camp worthy considering it's free and the BLM totally permits camping here. Verizon 4G service comes in at 3/5 bars for me.
It's not an ideal campsite because it's so close to the interstate but it's good for a night or two and much better than the Flying J parking lot if you don't want to drive far off of your route. Some trash spotting, invasive weeds, and the roads had huge pot holes dotted all over. There was also three cows and a train in the early morning that scared my dog. The petroglyphs were pretty cool to see! Amazing they've survived so well in that highway environment.
This appears to be an abandoned State Park campground. No signage at all except for a BLM notice asking you not to remove artifacts. (There are indigenous petroglyphs on site - PLEASE BE RESPECTFUL!)
No services, but lots of space and views of the mountains. Some road noise from the highway and lights in the distance but overall very dark and secluded.
Some campfire rings still exist. All the roads and pull-ins are still there so big rigs are probably fine.
As there are no signs, please do your best to LEAVE NO TRACE, and pack everything out including your waste or your pet’s. (The ground is too hard and rocky to dig a cat hole for human poop).
As long as we keep it clean and respect the place, I’m sure this will stay available. But there are homes and businesses nearby, so discretion will help keep this place open.
