Site Description: This is a relatively small, semi-primitive campground in the southern end of the Bradshaw Mountains in the Horsethief Basin Area. Ponderosa pine is the dominant vegetation type in the area. One of the most attractive and well-developed campgrounds in the southern Bradshaws. Most of the walls and walks throughout the campground were built of stone during the 1930s by the Civil Conservation Corp (CCC). This site may close early or open late, depending on snowfall.
