This camping area is about 1.2 miles beyond Frog Lake on the far side of Middle Ridge, about a half mile from the ridge top.
There are 3 backpack sites in the area and a somewhat centrally located outhouse. The campsites are marked with wooden posts. Campsite #1 is a nice flat site on the north side of Hobbs road, up the hill about 100 feet. Campsite #2, also on the north side, is largest, with a lovely flat area. Campsite #3 on the south side of the road, is smaller and fits one or maximum two small tents.
During recent years the Deer Horn spring had no summer flow.
In summer we suggest you bring water from Pajahuello Spring (Two Oaks area).
