Mile after mile of quiet, secluded forest. Camp far away from others in the shade of tall ponderosa pines. Many side roads and ATV trails to explore. Enjoy picnic areas overlooking Stoneman Lake. Gravel road with intermittent washboard surface. Four-wheel drive not necessary except if muddy or snow covered. Side roads in the area are more challenging. Camping near main roads suitable for motor homes.

We took this drive twice in the past few weeks. First time was memorial weekend. We were looking for a camping spot and boy, was it crowded. The road to Stoneman lake as well as the road leading up to Hutch mountain was covered with campers. When we went back a few weeks later (June 5) there we're a few people camping but probably not even half as before. The drive itself is easy. We were able to get up the road towing our pop-up. We set up camp right on the mountain and hiked up to the lookout. The road to the lookout is closed, but you can park and hike up there. The actual tower is also closed but you can still climb up the steps.

Ok but the tower was closed. Saw lots of wildlife.
