  • The petroglyphs are practically right next to the parking lot, they are very weathered and not as impressive as some others that we have seen. , But if you're in the vicinity, a quick stop worth a must-see

  • A sign points to the right towards petroglyphs at bottom of entrance road with a little up-and-down hike where some were visible. Then as suggested to us, there’s another section of walls beyond the c...  more »
  • If you haven’t seen many petroglyphs or love to see every one available this is for you. Otherwise feel free to skip this stop. It’s a right turn once you’ve entered the turn off  more »

  • Great campsite near the banks of the San Juan River. Not totally developed but that's one of the things that makes it great. Quiet evening and the best part is you are close to one of the most underrated rock art panels in the Southwest. Close to Bluff.
  • It seemed fine enough, plenty of camp sites with tables and fire pits. Had to stop to camp here because I wasn't going to make it to Flagstaff before sun set. I went during the first week of July and because it was near a river mosquitos were everywhere. Bring bug spray!
  • Beautiful view and setup. Only thing lacking was running water and lights in the bathrooms. Would definitely stay again.
  • Nice little campground. Clean and well maintained.
  • This primitive BLM campsite is hidden below from the highway. You can hear some traffic and at night, you can see headlights from Highway 191. It only sits about 1/10 of the mile away from the road. However, since it is down below, it's surprisingly a decent campground with lots of cottonwood trees. There is a petroglyph wall adjacent to the campground. Each site has a very nice metal picnic table and fire ring. There are several vaulted toilets and running potable water spigots available. This is a great spot for base camping to visit the nearby attractions. I rated this a 4-star because the AT&T data service (No 4G and sometimes E+ or H) was not sufficient or reliable for my needs to work from the RV. If you're looking to work remotely, this may not be the place to work from since you are below the main road, and line of sight to AT&T tower may be hindered.
