Beautiful landscape if you’re into wide open spaces. We had an amazing night camping on the grasslands. IMPORTANT NOTE: The eastern part of the area marked on Google Maps is privately owned and not available for dispersed camping. A rancher informed me of my mistake and pointed me to the public area off SR 450. Look for the sign!
Figuring out HOW to camp here was a bit challenging as the websites are not terribly helpful. But we got it sorted out (basically: show up, drive into a part of the grassland you are allowed to be in - I found the NPS road map pdf for the Grassland most helpful - and put up a tent). A bit windy, but the quiet and solitude is perfect for just getting away from it all. We still had full cell service where we were.
