Description
Beautiful, vast boondocking area east of the town of Jefferson, CO, on the way to Tarryall Reservoir. The road is just fine for larger RVs and you can go pretty far back in the forest safely. We were there during a downpour and the roads were still fine. No water in Jefferson, so stock up beforehand. Lots of campsites with fire rings already there and insane views. On the weekends it gets busy with OHVers and hunters, so if that's not your thing, visit on weekdays. Otherwise one of the all time best boondocking areas we've been to.

We have been up to this area a few times and it is stunning. most sites are big enough for multiple rigs but you can still find that out of the way site to get tucked into if you want. We camped a week just off the main rd and saw lots of big rigs go by. Lots of places to ride the toys, hike, etc. This is the MVUM for the area, you will find the Rock creek area in the upper left. http://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/stelprdb5177650.pdf

there is another post about this spot on a different camping website. it includes the following directions, but there don't seem completely accurate either. If you pull up Jefferson, CO on google maps, you can trace the route from county road 77, here they are: Take Hwy 287 (edit: thinks they mean 285) to Jefferson (toward Fairplay). Head East on County Road 77 (edit:toward Tarryall Reservoir), travel about 8 miles past ranches and rocks, then at the top of the crest turn left onto CR 39 (edit:Rock Creek Hills Rd), which turns into FR 39. National forest begins about 2 miles off CR 77.
