  • A very easy access to see petroglyphs. Easy access to the San Juan river. Multiple camp sites and some even have a lot of shade.  more »
  • We went at mid afternoon and the drawings were in full sun and on reflection it was not the best time. However, it is easy to get to these and they are well worth seeing.  more »
  • This campground is mainly for the boating crowd. Campground B is very nice. Part of it is at or near the river. Some sites back up to the river. That area was full so we camped in a pull through just ...  more »

  • Beautiful view and setup. Only thing lacking was running water and lights in the bathrooms. Would definitely stay again.
  • Water and toilets but no showers. Not sure why you would stay here since there are miles of outback camping around here but if you do need to it's just your average BLM campground. Really, this is the place local tour operators use to launch San Juan float trips.
  • 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.
  • Better than Mexican hat camping
  • Maybe it's better in winter but during monsoon time (June-August), mosquitos will eat you. I've never seen so many of them in one place (except in Brazil once) and they seem to be fire-resistant. Even repellants showed little effect.
