Each day at the North Rim of the Grand Canyon we went on long drives down dirt roads in hopes of finding a magical boondocking spot. How’s this look?
Forest Service Road 223 all the way to Fire Point is really quite good until it crosses into the National Park, at which point we found ourselves in some deep muddy water, fortunately we had momentum and didn’t get stuck.
The road also becomes quite narrow and would be a little too tight for trailers. The last good spot for RV’s is at the line that separates the National Park from the National Forest, otherwise, access to Fire Point is limited to 4WD vehicles (truck campers, sportsmobiles etc).
We went to a lot of lookouts this past week, and Fire Point has the biggest most impressive view we’ve seen. There also wasn’t anyone there – another plus in my book.
