April 3rd, 2021 Perfect boonedocking with a view

Good spots all along that Road. Excellent LTE here as the Transmitter is just a quarter mile away. one can hear the Highway at night.

October 29th, 2020 Mono Lake overlook

Excellent spot, we entered through cemetery road from 395 and that on is a graded gravel road. Forget about mapping Apps, they all send you in the bad road from the north.

September 28th, 2020 NF-110

NF Spot in the deep rain forest. amazing.
road a little bumpy but doable with 2wd

September 25th, 2020 Quincy Lakes Unit

Still an excellent spot, pit toilets all over the place, fire rings too, road in good condition. Places with shade available. Sadly a lot of thrash in the bushes.
Windy as hell, but that's okay as it keeps the bugs down.

Excellent spot, nice view over the reservoir, mostly quiet but some ATV noise is always around during the day.

September 19th, 2020 Big Pipestone Creek Pull-Out Sites

If you have anything bigger then a bicycle - don't consider that spot.

An old mining site in the middle of the hills, lots of wildlife around like wild horses, deer and so on.

Good spot for the night, the river was clean and good to swim.
But a bazillion of Mosquitos during the night, thank god our vehicle is Bug proof.

August 7th, 2020 Lake beach (cars, vans and trucks only)

An excellent spot, 1 Mile long Beach to choose a place, pit toilet above along the road.
the coordinates show not the real spot, move forward, you can see the beach.
it's easy to drive on the beach, solid ground even for 2WD Cars or Vans.
lake is 2arm enough for swimming right now.

Very nice owners.

August 3rd, 2020 Twin Bridges Access

Informal Campsite of the NF service, pit toilet, river access for swimming, lots of shade from trees, perfect on a hot day. free of charge for a maximum stay of 10 days. no cell coverage. no trash collection - pack it out. quite some road noise but not so much during the night. choose a spot as far away from the road as possible.

August 3rd, 2020 Sheep Creek rest area

rest area as described. but water only in the bath room, motion activated mini spray. dont stop here if you want to fill up your tanks like we wanted.

August 1st, 2020 Rocky Ridge Lake

Established NF Campground, free to use, maximum stay 14 days.
Little Lake that can be used for swimming or kayaking.
Along the "Lolo Trail" NF Road 500. For vehicles maximum size of a Sprinter Van and High Clearance. 4x2 is okay but I recommend to drive it in Low Range as it is sometimes pretty rough.
