Extremely rural. Lots of wildlife.

This spot is not easy to get to. You need the proper type of vehicle (off road with clearance). It is dry as a bone, but beautiful nonetheless. There are large trees and a perfect river. We saw a wolf, wild hogs, and signs of bears (droppings). If you want to connect with the wild, this is the place for you. As long as you know how to handle wildlife in a respectful way you will have nothing to worry about. The only drawback is that there is charred forest on either side of the campground. Though the campground itself is like a little oasis. Highly recommend visiting here. It gets VERY cold at night during early summer, so make sure to go prepared.

Absolutely beautiful. Perfect rural spot near the Piedra river.

This site is amazing. It’s free of charge if you can get there. The road leading to the campsite is dirt on the side of a cliff. No rail guards, so you have to be brave to make it up there. The drive is worth it once you get to the river-side sites this campground has to offer. There are tagged cattle that roam through the grounds. No potable water, though there is a vault toilet. It seemed like the fly fishers caught a lot of fish! Strict throw back policy though. I spent 5 days here and didn’t want to leave. Great little place to get away from civilization.
