Hickison Petroglyph Rec Area, US 50, Nevada

FREE campground of about 12 sites--some quite large. No hook ups or water, but does have garbage service. I visited end of October, 2017. Only two other campers in campground.



View from my campsite to the east. Antelope, deer, jackrabbits.



A couple short, self guided tours lead to petroglyphs. Sadly, there has been some vandalism.





The campground is just below a low ridge. The Pony Express route crossed the same ridge about 5 miles north. Could be an interesting hike/drive for the adventuresome. This link will open a topographic map of the area:

I don't have the name of the small commercial park. Its around 15 miles south of Carbondale on highway 133. This route heading south to Crawford in my earlier pic. Is one of the more scenic drives I've enjoyed in Colorado. Deep narrow valleys between towering peaks.
Heading further south brings you eventually to the north side of the Gunnison.

That picture has a bit of concrete. Looks similar to pictures of the Crystal River KOA. Any chance that is the place? If not, it looks to be an interesting alternative. Pat

It may have been a KOA, but I tend to shy away from them. This was in late April, after joining other classic motorhomes in a get together in Colo springs.
As it wound down there was a spring storm that layed down fresh snow making the mountains beautiful to travel thru.
Here is a pic of the valleys to the south on 133 that I mentioned.. An area that I should have spent more time in.
Many parks were not open yet at that time of year.

Cheers Richard

Crawford is the home of the late rock star, Joe Cocker.
His wife had a restaurant for a while, the "Mad Dog Cafe".
Very motorcycle friendly and we got a tour of the room housing all Joe's gold records.
His spectacular home is out of town a mile or two on a gravel road. The "Mad Dog Ranch". It looked like the perfect hideaway, although the house was something like 17,000 sq/ft.. Crawford didn't even have a stop light, and it had one gas station, a Sinclair with a couple pumps in a gravel parking lot.

Someone gave us directions to see Joe's house like this, "Turn right at the Post Office, and ...um, you'll find it."
We did.
That rock in the background is visible for miles around.

Wow, that's a stunning picture, Molly'sDad, shot from a drone?

Here is another camping pic of a very fun 10 days camping at Laguna Seca race track during the vintage race weekends of Montery car week. Giving easy access to many of the weeks car events.
It is operated as a county camping park when races are not using the track. This is a good place to stay while visiting the area.

Very nice Richard. We love camping next to a stream or river when in Colorado. Here are some pics from one of our favorite spots on the St Vrain river, Lyons CO. We've camped there a few times

A real deal on non-race days. Quite costly when the races are running. Your site looks very interesting. Is that the Grand Prix Campground, by chance?

Yes, but not by me. The home is for sale since Joe passed away, perhaps the realtor. The house is blocked in front from the road by all the trees. You can tell a lot, a few horses, cattle, snowmobiles, boats. Joe and Pam were active in charity events and loaned the home out for charities.
Why Crawford? Good question, he sure got seclusion.
