Great place to stop when the sun is down it’s generally quiet but you can definitely hear the traffic from I-8 but that doesn’t bother me. Some pioneer historical stuff right nearby.

Spent the day in the Cleveland Nat Forest but didn’t want to sleep there cause of the cold so this place is less in altitude and not as cold, generally pretty quiet but you can definitely hear the traffic from I-8.

Report Check-In

It is back open. Relatively small number of spots but nice overall. Further away from road so less noise. Decent cell.

Tried to stop here for the night but it’s actually closed down. Ended up parking on a flat area just before getting back on the freeway

Report Check-In

big rest area with washrooms. dump station and water fill up were barricaded off and out of order.

Quieter than expected. Not much light either. Officially, there's an 8 hour limit. I think it's ok if you don't abuse.
Got there in the dark at 7pm and left at 8am.
Clean bathrooms.
Good water fountain to fill up jugs.

Nice Rest area on Interstate 8 with clean amenities. Although ut is actually settled right between the lanes going west or east we had a quite night. The road sign only says 'Buckman Springs Rd' - so make sure that you don't miss it :). As always on rest areas: you are legally allowed to stay up to 8hrs.
