Mountain Sheep Point Rec Site

Mountain Sheep Point Rec Site, also known as ‘Dove Creek Pumps’ is approximately 19 miles downriver from Bradfield is the Mountain Sheep Point Recreation Site, which can be accessed by driving about 6 miles east from Dove Creek along gravel and dirt county roads. This site is used primarily as a river access point during 'boatable releases' on the Lower Dolores River and can be extremely busy during those periods. The rest of the year this site serves as a small day use site located with an extremely scenic portion of the Dolores River Canyon. Sheer Redrock cliffs and frequent appearances by bighorn sheep make this a great place to have a picnic lunch and dip your toes in the river. The site consists of a boat ramp, vault toilet, two picnic tables, one fire ring, interpretive panel, and parking. For more information, please contact the Tres Rios Field Office.
