Latest Check-Ins

I wasn't able to find this place.

Report Check-In

The location is marked wrong. The dot marks only the road, but the national forest doesn’t start for quite a ways past this. See the marked spots farther east along the road.

Report Check-In

I didn't stay. I was in a 2002 Ford E450 skoolie and found the road too rough. It was rattling my bus so much I could't control the steering wheel. I know that often going faster on a washboard makes it passable but this didn't work for me on this road. It was very disappointing bc I had to miss hiking the Chiricahua park. I'd love to hear if other skoolies made it and how it was for them.

Report Check-In

As mentioned, washboard on the way in but flat. Easily passable with 2WD. Many lovely, large and flat spots right on the (dry in March 2021) creek with fire pits. No amenities or cell service with Verizon or ATT.

Report Check-In

Lovely flat dispersed camping areas along level but washboarded gravel road accessible for two wheel srive. Fire rings but no other amenities. No cell coverage on Verizon. Creek dry

Report Check-In

Just as described. A washboard-y road on the way in but my Sprinter van made it fine; found a sweet spot right next to a gurgling stream (Feb). Same kind of landscape as the NM CG but remote/ harder to access. pluses are stream-side site and privacy (no neighbors).

Report Check-In

Great multiple dispersed campsites along this national forest road. There's a few before this junction and many at this particular area. Shaded with trees and fire rings. This area is actually better than the campground in the park.
