About

Bureau of Land Management

Ramhorn Springs is a small water source located in a high desert setting that has been utilized by travelers and ranchers for many years. A 10 unit campground has been constructed adjacent to it. The facilities include an informational kiosk, picnic tables, fire rings, trash cans, a horse corral and one vault toilet.The surface in the campground is packed earth and gravel. There is no potable water. There is no fee for the use of the campground but a donation is requested to assist with the routine maintenance costs. There is not much shade in the campground, therefore the most enjoyable time to visit this campground is during the cooler months of the year. Campground is open all year, however, access is limited during wet weather. See more photos of the Ramhorn Springs Campground.

Great For a Quick Overnight

We stayed here overnight when passing through the area. Very clean campground with pit toilet, concrete picnic tables and fire rings. There were also a few game cleaning stations as well. Beautiful rock formations and juniper trees. The area feels ancient with a beautiful energy. Will definitely be staying here again when we pass back through the area.

great spot off the 395

this site was much better than expected. it's about 2-3 miles off the 395 and has a variety of spaces. most of the sites are pull-through but if you have a bigger rig you might have a bit of a problem turning around at the end of the campground. It looked like a dead end and didn't want to risk it. even though there is a bubbling creek next to the campground it was great that we didn't have any bugs or mosquitos. I also talked to a group of contractors staying at the site that it can get busy when they (and 2-3 other teams) use it as home base to clear fire breaks around the 395 during the summer

Shaded campground with Juniper Trees and rugged rocks by a small stream

Brilliantly quiet and peaceful campground. Hardly ever more than a few campers, never full. Located 3miles down a gravel road, drivable by even a compact car. Cottonwood and Willow trees surround small stream that runs through the entire campground. Easy access to OHV trails nearby. Each site has tables and a fire pit. Also, 2 contraptions to hang hunted animals. Spotty Verizon service, no ATT reception. Vault toilet bathroom very clean but smelly!! This is a FREE campground, and in order to keep it that way, we must collectively treat it well by following Leave No Trace principles. There are trash receptacles on site, but hunters are instructed to take animals remains and dump OUTSIDE of campground.

Nice

Beautiful campground not too far off of 395. Stayed one night passing through. Free campground with pit toilets. Stayed on a Thursday lots of spaces open. Was able to back in our 19 foot trailer. Road in was a dirt road fine for the most part with a few ruts.
