Robbers Roost campsite can accommodate 2 vehicles, 8 people, no horses.
Robbers Roost campsite is located along the Juniper Canyon Road via the Glenn Springs Road. Juniper Canyon Road begins 6.8 miles from the junction of the Glenn Spring Road and the main road to Rio Grande Village. This is a rough, backcountry road that requires high clearance vehicles to safely negotiate. After rains, 4-wheel drive may be required.
The 5.3 mile (8.5km) Juniper Canyon road is very rocky and generally requires a 4-wheel drive vehicle.
VegetationThere is no shade at the campsite. Moderate ground cover surrounds the site.
ViewsGreat views of the desert and rugged mountains. The South Rim is visible to the west. Elephant Tusk and Backbone Ridge are visible to the south.
A trailhead for the Juniper Canyon Trail and Dodson Trail is located at the end of the dirt road past Twisted Shoe primitive roadside campsite. Lock and secure your vehicle while away.
RemarksNice views from this remote site, especially the night sky, and there is very little traffic. Robbers Roast has a bear proof storage box.
