Good BLM

Plenty of camping on BLM land. Be advised, signage recommends high clearance vehicles.

Beauty on the rocks

Camping,kokopelli trail and views are amazing here. High ground clearance vehicles recommended. There were a few other campers, but we never heard a peep.

Love this overlook

Great wilderness camping spot. Only 5 miles to it but definite high clearance vehicle needed. Takes about 30-35 minutes to drive to this. Overlooks the Colorado River. No SEEUMS were no fun, but with this view no problem! Soft soap seemed to keep them at bay pretty well!

  • View to the east at Sunset. With small rainbow
  • Step down to the kitchen and dining room
  • Looking west   Enjoying the fire
