Likely In-Season!
This remote, primitive, scenic, and ideally located "first come/first serve" group or individual vehicle camping-tent camping location bordering a very rugged section of the Sierra Ancha Wilderness just off FR203 north end, offers an excellent base camp location at 4225 feet for numerous, rugged "off trail" exploratory day hiking opportunities or drives to other Cherry Creek FR203 areas for further off trail explorations.


With numerous large, level areas for tent and/or vehicle camping, also included are a dense and shaded grove of mature oaks and juniper trees to provide shade during the warmer days. Also, a perennial, unnamed slow flow spring seep is only a ~.125 mile hike from camp (Please note that this campsite area off FR203 is often active with cattle ranging so water treatment and/or filtering is highly recommended).
