Stevens Camp Cabin


Steven's Camp - Stevens Camp is a popular camping area located at the North end of High Rock Canyon.  It is a convenient and accessible camping area that provides a good base camp for exploration of High Rock Canyon and the surrounding uplands - rich in game and not many people.  There are four established camping areas at Stevens Camp, including a large site near the free use cabin. The cabin site(s) includes amenities such as a vault toilet, picnic tables, fire pits and a grill. The cabin itself is available for public use on a first-come first-served basis and includes amenities such as running water (must be treated prior to drinking), a wood stove, a shower and hot water heater, and connections for generator to provide power and lights to the cabin.  There is a 14 day maximum stay limit.

The cabin is full most of the summer, so don’t expect to be the only person looking to use the facilities.
