On I-40 (east from Flagstaff, west from Winslow):

  • Get off at Exit 233 towards Meteor Crater
  • Turn south onto Meteor Crater Road
  • Drive 4.6 miles to the dirt road (just past the Bar T Bar sign, on the left)
  • Bear right, and drive 9.4 miles on the dirt road (Chavez Pass Road)
  • Turn right at the four-way intersection, and drive 2.5 miles along the fence to a gate (just before the road bears left)
  • Turn right and go through the gate; the campsite is approximately 0.7 miles from the gate.

There will be signs at each turn, and you'll see the porta-john by the road across from the campsite.

* Okay, its just a few days after the full moon, but if the sky is clear we'll be able to see a pretty big moon and plenty of stars!
