Default Looking for a camp site

Last minute decision.... The fam wants to do some dispersed camping tomorrow night and we decided to stay close to the boulder area. Saving gross reservoir for a last resort. Considering moon gulch but remember seeing only one site last time I was out there. Any suggestions? Would prefer close to a stream or water. Will have the kids and dogs with us. Taking only what we can fit in the 4runner. Going to test out the new dutch oven!

Rollins Pass, Kingston peak? Anything on the peak to peak will be awesome.

Camp Dick off of peak to peak highway, just north of Ward. I think all spots after Labor day are first come first serve and you are right at the middle st.vrain/coney flats trail head. Its not primitive camping but plenty to do.

I know it was Labor Day, but Camp Dick was beyond crazy last Sunday. I mean like stupid busy.

There is dispersed camping off of Bunce School Road right near there. There were some really great spots.

We ended up on a sweet spot off of moon Gulch. Found an old mine and explored some of the off shoots. Kids passed out... dogs passed out... girlfriend passed out. Truck needs emptied and swapped back over to daily driver mode. I'm the last man standing to deal with this

It was a good time. It got tighter the further up we went and turn arounds were getting sparse. Didn't go the whole way and wish I did but my pup was starting to look a little green from the ride and ansy from stuff falling over on him!

just as a warning to others reading this in the future...choose your camp spot wisely along Bunce. Lots of people go out to this area to shoot their guns and I've had bullets zing past my camp site before... to the point I had to blow my air horn to get them to stop.
