I discovered this place only because of the brown sign along the highway just outside of Vernal, Utah.
It is not listed on the freecampsites website I always refer to. Three miles in on a paved road (I like that) is the trail head for numerous hiking and biking trails
We camped across the road from the trail head with this view from our front yard.
We are the only ones camping in the entire McCoy Flats area. Lucky us.
As you already know, it looks much nicer and more impressive than the photo.
I went for a hike into the foothills behind the parking area.
So many times I have come across a lone bone during my hikes which always makes me wonder
"Where are the rest of the bones?"
It is absolutely quiet as can be here with the only sound to heard are birds chirping.
There was nothing of any interest to find here, nothing much to see either. Lots of hind ends of bunnies as they run away from me. Two lizards and some prairie dogs chirping a warning but I could never locate the little guys themselves. I guess so few people ever come here that they are not used to them as are the prairie dogs of Rabbit Valley who were very curious.
The evening of the first day here.
That night the wind really roared shaking the RV rocking me to sleep.
