Remote, but not out of the way

After spending the last two nights paying for camping in Rabbit Valley and Moab, decided to try out this dispersed camping site.  I would recommend a more off road friendly vehicle to reach these campsites.  The views were beautiful, and we had a large campsite to ourselves.  Will definitely be using this site more often when traveling to Moab.

Remote and Restful Night

I came out here for a night's rest while on a trip, it was very remote, and slept well. I came in late in the night, but woke up to beautiful views of the surrounding area. Even though this is off the highway, you won't feel like it. You'll see some lights from the highway, as well as some light pollution from Grand Junction, but it worked perfectly to camp here. I didn't see any one else while I was out here for the night and morning I was here.

BLM road warning: The road in definitely isn't meant for a stock Prius, but it's definitely doable if you're very careful. :) Didn't quite bottom out, but got close a few times, lots of rocks as BLM roads usually have.

Directions help: I followed my Google Maps to the coordinates, and it lead me a weird way. I'd recommend reading the directions on this page to get to the intended camp site. I took a wrong turn, however, I ended up at a nice little dispersed camp site. My mistake was I took a left at the fork, instead of a right. Either way has camping spots, incase the original site is full. :)

Good for an overnight stop

Free dispersed campground. Nothing super special about it besides that it’s free and right off the highway. We like to leave to go camping after work and so we leave Denver kind of late, so we used this as an overnight stop on our way out to some parks in Utah.
