I landed to the south and on the east side of the runway where it slopes up there was a small gully from the recent rains. I was able to stay to the right/west side with no issues. Windsock looked ok but was flopped back on itself. It looked like the next strong wind will probably fix it.

Two large water holes. One on each towards each end of the landing strip. Reduced usable surface by approximately 40%

Obviously you have to pick your touchdown point due to the multiple hills on the runway. I landed beyond the first high point on RWY 28 and would have been at full stop long before the high point near the windsock. Runway was super firm and smooth.

New strip for me...nice runway that is also a road. Make sure no one is near when you are landing! There is a trailhead about 5 miles west of the airstrip / road. I made a video that might be of interest: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cChgacA8pr0

Camping at Angel Point

Added by Wendy Lessig 8 months ago

Great camping spot at the south end of the short runway/road, overlooking the canyon that leads to the Dirty Devil River. Great view! Bring your own aircraft tie downs, water & firewood, as well as shovel for toilet purposes.
