August 7th, 2020 cottonwood creek road

Pull off spot right off of trail along creek. Has fire ring. Tall trees so slightly private but trail is busy with cars and ORVs in AM and evening. Can walk back from sight to larger creek to fish or drive up to the lake. Stayed here 3 nights.

July 28th, 2020 Beef Basin Road - Top

Pretty awesome view. Breezy. No service. Very quiet. Only saw one other truck on the whole trail. Watch out for ants!

July 20th, 2020 Mesa verde Nationalpark (outside In BLM)

All sites were full except two. We snagged #13. Not the best view but has a couple trees to provide shade. We didn’t notice the road being very bumpy like mentioned in earlier posts but we do have high clearance. Perfect for the night before we visit the park.

July 19th, 2020 Junction Creek Road

This spot was taken as well as a few others along the road. Finally drove up far enough to find one! Our particular spot was up a washed out trail up a little hill. Not a great view of the mountains but the stars were fantastic! Main road up has a lot of wash boarding going on and gets a little rockier the higher you go. We aired down for comfort but not needed. The flies were pretty annoying at our spot but tolerable.

July 12th, 2020 BLM black canyon

Good views, secluded. Some shade. Verizon has 1 bar of 4G. Not crowded right now.

July 11th, 2020 Soap creek primitive camp site

Very nice primitive camping spot up the road from the soap creek camp ground. Fire pit, a little off the trail with level spots and a great view.
