Would love to get some additional recommendations.
We like boondocking
without paying a fortune. West of Salida Colorado going up Poncha Pass is a lake called O'Haver Lake and it has a nice campground as far as scenery and size on most sites. Water spouts around the campground and pit toilets. No dump station. Generators can be used during the day until quiet hours. No cell phone reception and no TV reception. Nice hiking trails around lake and up a nice valley for a quite a ways. The road turns west off of the pass and is dirt about 7 miles south of Poncha Springs. About 5 miles into the dirt road you turn right and that road can be a little rough and that detours a few people but we have taken our motor home and our Casita
up there many times. It's steep and winding for about 2-3 miles. The fishing can be great or not a bite. The cost is about $10 a night with the National Lifetime Senior Park Pass. It could be less but I haven't been there in a couple of years. We paid $6 the last time I believe. Elevation is about 9,400 ft. Some sites are reservable but some are first come first serve. Usually weekends are hard to get sites but Monday through Thursday usually no problem. ATV's are not allowed to be ridden in the campground but the first 3 sites are kind of out of the main loop and ATV's use them.
