Haven't been on that particular road lately, but we've had a lot of rain. That area may have even gotten some snow. It could dry out by 2nd season, but even dry its a rough road.

Good Luck!

I would start out by trying the Yampa River State Park a couple miles west of Hayden. Its right off Hwy 40 along the Yampa River and will easily accommodate camping trailers. I believe they have about 50 campsites. Their phone number is 970-276-2061. If that is too far from your hunting area, I would ask them what they would suggest, or they could give you additional contact info. I would make reservations ASAP, everything fills up fast during hunting season.

Craig has a KOA campground, which is 17 miles west of Hayden.

There are primitive campgrounds up higher, however you may have trouble getting your camper in there.

Here is a list of primitive campgrounds in the Routt National Forest.

You will need a good detailed map handy to determine where the campground is located, since the Routt National Forest covers a huge area.

Good luck again! Hopefully you'll get some pics to post as well. Big smile

After this rain/snow 80 shouldn't be bad with a 4x4 but the other dirt roads will more then likely need chains.

We had a 28 footer on some BLM and almost jacked-knifed it twice coming off yesterday. Thanks be to God that we had chains or we would have had a mess on our hands. If we had stayed up, we wouldn't have been able to get it out for 3 or 4 more days. Have a great hunt.
