HOST truck camper on RAM 5500

Campground

Perfect for winter weather camping. Visited in April and it was Africa 🥵 HOT. No water. Dry camping. Beautiful though. Stars are bright.

Not as advertised

$33. / night

BLM dispersed/boondocking

Love this area. Many places to pull over. Too hot in April. Great winter place. The road is a narrow one lane road, not suitable for big RV’s. Spaces are around at least 500 ft apart. People are still disrespecting the land by leaving trash and running over live plants.

Campground

Full. Very popular. Nice if you can get it. Fishing and horses.

Boondocking

A very popular area. Here April 1. Constant ATV’s and other vehicles/campers. Managed to find a single pull off. Most areas are larger and you have lots of company. The other reviews spell it out well. 

Campground

Check out the other reviews. They state the situation very well. It is a very nice campground. There is room for some large rigs.  Newly built flush toilets. Only negative is you sometimes have to listen to ATV’s that sound like giant kazoos. Did not see any tents, only RV’s. Half price for senior pass holders…$7.00👍 Two bars on T-Mobile…yippee!

Campground

Old CCC built campground. Lots of history in the area. Good spring water that is tested regularly by the park rangers. Pit toilet.

Boondocking

Didn’t go to the end of the road. About half way up found a flat spot 50 feet off “The Dyrt” road…looking for solitude. Apparently the top of the road are is quite popular.

Campground

Absolutely a gorgeous setting.

Campground

BLM. Only two parking camp spots. Many camp sites for those on the Pacific Crest trail. Travelers on Hwy 178 use this location as a pit toilet stop at all times…day and night. Signs of past Indian village. The red fencing is for horses.

Campground

Sign says closed for winter. Looks like a nice campground.

Campground

Sign said closed for winter. Looks great. Right on the River. Very large day use area next door. Rafting companies put in here. There is also a hot spring nearby.

Campground

Small but spacious campground. Only 5 sites. BLM $5. Stayed early March. Roughly 2,900 feet. Snowed. Free range cattle. Road coming from the east is a great drive. Road going west to King City is narrow and pot holed. Great place.

Campground

Small but spacious campground…only 6 sites, so get there early. Free BLM campground. Unfortunately some are disrespecting this beautiful place…see photos. The road coming from King City is narrow and pot holed…not for extra large RV’s. Love this place.

Campground

Small but spacious campground…only 5 sites. Fills up so get there early.

Race track campground

Nice campground but because the water has high levels of arsenic, you cannot drink it. Best prices during non-events. Ask for what discounts are offered. Some spots can be a little close to other spots. Great views. Dump Station offered but not much good due to wrong road grade. Campgrounds with and without power are offered.

Campground

Nice little campground. Best is 12, then 1, then 3. 2 and 11 are small and uneven ground…the rest are ok. Best time is off season and week days. Can use dump station at Basalt campground.

Campground early March

There are two campsites and upper and lower. During off-season only the first campsite is open. Very quiet and very spacious. Lots of elk in the area. Clean with flush toilets and paid showers. RV dump station. This area is also one of the very few you will see the yellow billed magpie.

Campground

All sites lay along the lake. This place is very popular with fishermen. Campground is rustic and could use some TLC. $20/night. Seniors save an extra $2.

Campground

All roads approaching the park are very narrow and windy. Quimby Road is especially difficult. The campground has an extremely narrow access road and small sites. Only use the campground if you are in a small vehicle. Campground has RV dump but only bring a very small RV into the park if you plan to use a group site.
