A fairly short drive out of town gets you nicely way out of town. RVs and trailers were bunched up near the highway as if this was a KOA spot, but if you are willing to go further up the washboarded, but decent dirt road, you will escape most crowds. The road is dusty and the steady stream of OHVs will make you want to find a spot a little further off FS525. Very doable. About 4+ miles in you will get a great panoramic view of the mountains, so don't be afraid to keep driving. As others have said, great stars, not a sound at night and wonderful solitude. You may be awoken to hot air balloons dropping off tourists at sunrise. That was a surprise.
Leave no trace.
