It’s not so bad

Sure, some people don’t know how to pick up after themselves, but I wouldn’t rate it poorly for that reason alone. I always bring a large heavy duty trash bag to pick up whatever I can reasonably fit into my forester. There’s no amazing view but I had no idea there were such forested places in a state like Arizona. I picked up wood at a gas station but there was plenty of brush lying around to burn. The spots are right off the dirt road so I imagine on a busy night it can get noisy and crowded. I camped out on a wednesday night in February and it was very quiet.

Not Travel Trailer Friendly

It looks like a great spot to tent camp, but the spots are close together in some areas. The road here is one narrow lane only. If you have a trailer and someone comes the other way you or them have to back out.
