About: This is a relatively small, semi-primitive campground in the southern end of the Bradshaw Mountains in the Horsethief Basin Area on the Bradshaw Ranger District. Ponderosa pine is the dominant vegetation type in the area. This is an old, but 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). The campground will accommodate up to 150 people.
