Not the best strip in strong winds. Short, but plenty of room with stable approach. Surface is decent, with no major ruts or holes. Challenging and fun strip.

Ditch on down-river end of airstrip should probably get some attention.

Camping at Dirty Devil

Added by Wendy Lessig 2 weeks ago

Camping at the Dirty Devil airstrip is an amazing experience. Since it is on a shelf within a canyon, the red rock cliffs are majestic in the dawn and sunset light. The dark skies make for brilliant stargazing. Beware of plentiful cactus and thorns when choosing a spot to pitch your tent.
