Secluded BLM camping in East Castle Rock Gulch.

This is an awesome camp spot for individuals who do not have a 4x4 or AWD and want a secluded getaway! It does require to drive about 3 miles along a dirt road before arriving at the dead end of 188A, but can be easily cleared. From what I could see on the drive in there were only 4 camp spots designated by fire pits, 1 off of 188A, 2 at the dead end of 188A, and one off of 188. These camp spots are primitive, meaning no services!! Bring lots of water and don't forget to pack in and pack out!

At the end of 188A there is a large rock face to the right. You will find a small trail that leads up the backside of it to the top and gives you a pretty unforgettable view.
