Description

Decent place for one night on your way to (or from) Grand Canyon or driving along I-40. A side road makes a loop from and to R66 for just about 200-300m. There is some vegetation so you can’t be seen from R66. Nothing fancy and no amenities yet ok. Quiet as traffic is limited. Suitable for towed vehicles or bigger rigs as well up to 5th wheel size. 5bars LTE with AT&T

Large open spots with plenty of places to camp. Not terribly rough, cars and vans would be fine.

Verizon had had 1 bar in some areas. Barely had service.

Great spot. It was peace and dark night sky with exception of amazing moon and stars. Thanks for sharing! It was Peaceful and slept great! However, like in many spots people left all kinds of trash. However, I spent a little time and cleaned it up😊 so it looks great when you arrive. Also there is a small fire ring just past the large tree.

Quick and easy. Best part is that it’s far enough from the freeway to avoid the road noise.

perfect for the night due to high winds grinding us for the day! Quiet, private and beautiful views.

Just as described, Easy pull true for maybe 3 rigs. A lovely sunset, Quiet all night and a nice sunrise as well. It’s a little ni level but we didn’t even bother using a leveling block. We would recommend this for a single night stay!!

Report Check-In

Parked on side of road with slides out. Very quiet night, just two pickups. There is a decent camping area for smaller rigs visible on satellite map at the east end of the road. We parked on the street across from it with our big rig, just off the road. Some mud at the back of the camping area so we steered clear.

Crookton Wild Camp spot. Nice, flat, quiet side road loop to boondock off route 66. Nice greenery to obscure you from the road. Somebody has even made a fire ring of rock to have a fire. There is room for a few rigs and/or large RV and trailer. No amenities.

Pull out at end of the guardrail going East. Trash over the edge, but not bad at the top. Mt Humphries visible from the site. Quiet.

Pull through site as described. Not too much traffic.

Fine place for the night. You do hear train whistles throughout the night however. 66 is pretty quiet overnight.

Little side road off the main Route 66. Elevated above the existing road with a nice view to the north and east. Very little traffic on Route 66 at night but you can hear trains in the distance.

Secluded mostly from the road and it is a loop track. Suitable for towed vehicles or bigger rigs as well up to 5th wheel size.
