Trying to find out more information regarding dispersed camping near Rock Crossing Campground by the Blue Ridge Res. I see that there is a camp ground that is first come first serve but wanted to see if anyone had info regarding dispersed camping in the area.
We typically have been going to Woods Canyon on the rim road (fr 9350 or 9354) but looking for another option.
There are two campgrounds in the area Rock Crossing and Blue Ridge. The latter is about a mile of the pavement, the former right near the reservoir. I think your TT is a bit big for either one, or at least Blue Ridge. The area is sort of open ponderosa pine forest, though, so I think you would have some opportunities to dry camp in the area. There are also some open areas I'm sure you could get into along 87 in the vicinity, too. Those are probably not a big attraction if your goal is to get near the water. Sorry I can't be more precise, it's been awhile since I camped in that area. If noone jumps in with some better information I'd just go there and check it out, I think odds are you could dry camp there. If it looks tight, go back in solo to be sure you can maneuver the TT.
Just a follow up to this thread. We did end up visiting the cg in early Sept. It is a great place and we really enjoyed it. There are about half the sites that we could fit it with our tt. We found the best one in my opinion which was the last spot on the right just before you make the loop.
