Northeastern Arizona on the Navajo Nation. There are few places in this country as isolated as most of that area. The area is mostly plateau with several pine covered ridges and more mesas in the northernmost regions.

There really are very few places in the east that can come close to the standard level of isolation found in the West.

I was also about to say Northeastern Arizona. I'd argue the Northwestern corner of the state (above the Grand Canyon) is also pretty isolated.

My wife got to see her first horny toad on a road outside of Pecos. Very rugged territory all out in that area.

Key West is only 90 miles from Cuba.

I know it's not as isolated but you might be surprised at how remote some areas can be back east. I was just trying to look into Bartow, WV yesterday and it is VERY remote. City Data doesn't even recognize it as a town. The only towns around it all have populations of about 100 people so yes, there are towns nearby but nothing of substance. The nearest town with even 7,000 people is over 40 miles away. Add to that the winding mountain roads and it can feel like it takes forever to get anywhere (from what I hear, I've never actually been there).
