Description: Elevation 7,800 feet. 5 sites, including 1 RV-only site(25 foot maximum length). Also is used as a group site for 20-50 people. The big attraction here is, of course, the caves. The half-mile hike Cave trail begins in the campground, with a series of stone steps leading to the rock shelter site. The red, yellow, black and white images (pictographs) here were painted by ancient Shoshones. Projectile points found at this cave date to about 600-1300 CE.

On nearby BLM land is Spencers Hot Springs. The water is 192 degrees, and there is a developed tub and a below-ground pool.
