Dec 19, 2019: RVer report confirms multiple reports from Dec 2018 & earlier. Overnight RV Parking is allowed. No signage found. Two large gravel areas have room for rigs to turn around without backing up. Park so as not to obstruct movement by any other vehicles. Not level; the farther you to toward the top of the hill the more level it gets. Unlit, appears safe, no amenities. Possible noise from trucks dropping trailers here.
Directions
US 101, Exit 283 (Jolon Rd), then S on Jolon Rd ~ 0.2 mi up hill from interchange to two large gravel turnouts on L
