Camping at Rocky Canyon Campground

Otherwise, there is plenty of dispersed camping along North Star Rd before you get to that last 3/4 mile, where you could tow something larger.

Rocky Canyon Campground is meant more for hikers, 4WD enthusiasts. It’s a great place if you want some amenities from a campground, but still want to get away from most people. It has only two picnic tables and just one porta-potty.
