Number of People Encountered: 11-25 ppl Recommend to a Friend: Highly Report: This was a pristine camping area. If you don't mind going primitive, this is a wonderful place to stay. The road in and out is a nightmare though. Water Availability: I had to trek about 100 or so feet up and down hill to the Conejos river to get water. You must treat water before you drink.
