Horsethief Camp

Horse Thief Camp was named by surveyors for the legendary Chief Walkara of band of Ute. Walkara was a skilled hunter and horseman from an early age. Able to speak numerous languages, he proved to be a very skilled negotiator and helped negotiate peace between Utah settlers and Native Americans in 1853. Prior to that, Walkara and a aband of warriors from the Great Basin tribes became famous for their succesful raids on ranches and on travelers on the Old Spanish Trail. This campground is a first-come first-served area, with three single and one double campsite. Tables and fire grates are provided at each campsite. A vault toilet is located in the center of the campground. There is no fire wood or potable water available. Bring a sufficient supply of each for your use.
