    Looking for a camping spot in Durango

    Hey guys! New to the forum, found it thru ST-owners.com. Can't believe I didn't find this sooner!! Looking forward to browsing the threads.

    Got a quick questions which is why I posted in this subtopic.

    Friend of mine (Honda Sabre rider) are headed to Mesa, AZ next month for a benefit ride (www.rideforryan.com). It's my friend's first long distance ride, so we'll be splitting the trip into two comfortable days, stopping over in Durango. He loves to camp, but has never camped from his bike before. I've been doing it for years so will help him with packing, however I do need some help. Looking for some National Forest access near Durango so that we can camp for free. Of course needs to be accessible by motorcycle (any dirt road that a car can get down is just fine).

    Thanks everybody!

    Just a few miles north of Durango on 550 is a lake and nice camping.

    Thanks! Can you give me any more details? We might be getting in in the evening, so daylight will be fading.

    Thanks!

    This thread might become a moot point, as we're traveling at the end of April, so if the weather doesn't cooperate we'll probably be superslabbing...

    Hi and welcome to the site. I think anrfknm is talking about Electra Lake and Purgatory CG north of Durango, but I could be wrong.
