  • 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 petroglyphs, but I need background info. Will do do some reading. The graffiti Is so wrong. I am glad we took the time to see this.  more »

  • Beautiful view and setup. Only thing lacking was running water and lights in the bathrooms. Would definitely stay again.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
