Quiet and remote

Very remote and quiet. We didn’t go too far in but plenty of sites available and didn’t see a single other soul. Easily accessible and had vaulted toilets available. Saw plenty of wildlife including elk, wild turkey, and mule deer.

Fantastic spots. You just have to look around to find the best one. Be aware of others though. We did have a family show up and start shooting guns in the area without any concern for others around them.

Labor Day trip

We went for Labor Day weekend, we had a blast because we were able to stay secluded and enjoy it! Plenty of trees!
