Pretty But Pretty Lawless Too
Convenient location to LHC, close to stores, good cell, roads in/out are wide enough. The stone formations and varied color geology are very cool.
Not particularly well maintained and it looks like some are living in there long-term (I was told this too, not sure its true). A few sites had large canopies over sectional sofas outdoors. Saw one discarded couch laying in a vacant site. If you go the 15mph speed limit you may have a-holes towing ATVs try to pass you on the rough road, I did. One night another a-hole was blasting deep bass rap music. As I was leaving, yet another a-hole on a dirt bike decided to drive up the (non-trail) picturesque knoll behind my site spitting rocks and leaving a torn path thru the low lying vegetation and variable colored stones.
The camp hosts are there but will ignore you unless you search them out (that's a good thing) and they seem to not do anything (probably not a good thing). An occasional Park Ranger will drive thru but it's not enough.

Stayed 5 days. Awesome location. Close to store but tucked away that you feel completely out there.

Great trails for off road, really close to town, quiet and just a gorgeous area. If you want privacy just keep driving there are way more camp ground further along. Signs said to check in with camp host, but they were never there, we tried 3 times.
