About

USDA Forest Service

San Juan National Forest

https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd766784.pdf

Look for an area that has already been impacted to avoid further damaging vegetation. Falling trees are always a hazard when traveling through the forest. Place tents and park vehicles in areas where they will not be hit if a tree falls. Regulations: • You may drive up to 300 feet off an open road to access a campsite unless otherwise signed, and if you can do so without causing damage to soils or vegetation. • Camp at least 100 feet from any source of water within wilderness areas. Check Wilderness regulations for site specific closures. • Any area signed as “No Camping” means just that. • MVUM’s (Motor Vehicle Use Maps) are also a good information source for stretches of roads on National Forests that allow dispersed camping from a vehicle. • Do not damage vegetation. Do not cut green trees, break off limbs, drive nails into or damage the bark of trees. • Do not level a site or dig trenches, rather pick a site with good drainage. • Do not cut live tress for any purpose including tent poles, hanging racks, and clearing ground. • Building permanent structures is prohibited. When you leave, dismantle all structures including game poles. Pack out all non-native materials. • Respect private landowners and don't trespass on private property.

Free dispersed by Cross Mtn TH

Free dispersed across hwy #145 to east from the Cross Mtn TH. Lower spots best for large RVs or TTs. Road ends quickly at a TH parking area with no turnaround for TTs so scout first. No cell signal, no designated sites, no water or dumpsters. 14d limit. Note that at the lizard pass TH parking about 1.5 miles away on hwy 145 there is a vault toilet and a DUMPSTER.
