Thanks Noodly, looks good. I stayed in CoE CGs last summer in WA state, and they were very nice. Great resource.

I ran across a new website I had not seen before.

First come, off-season.

Cloud, I also had a similar experience to yours 2 summers ago. I was boondocking on BLM in Oregon not far from a big town, and local twits came in the daytime with semi-automatic weapons with bump stocks, and proceeded to blast the heck out of a bunch of bottles. Glass everywhere. 

Anymore, I check over areas to see if there is evidence of such behavior. Eg, near to a town, garbage and broken glass and beer cans.

At the US Army Corps of Engineers campground at Cotchiti Lake. Really nice campground, only 6 bucks a night if you have an annual national parks pass.

It's sad, you'd think of anyone the locals would respect the land the most. But apparently in a lot of places it's not so.

I was watching a YouTube video (Avion Awesome) that Tent Rocks doesn't allow dogs. At all. They won't even let you enter with a dog in your vehicle. That makes it a deal breaker for me, since I spend 24 hours a day with a chocolate lab.
who's video was that? got a link? highdesertranger
Their website does not mention a pet policy. Their website has a phone number to call for clarification if you would like to go there with a pet. Take everything on the internet with a grain of salt and not gospel. There is no substitute for your own research.

From that exact link about halfway down the page:


Please note that dogs are not allowed in the Monument.
Whelp, missed it! I did just skim as I don't have a dog in the hunt so to speak.
