“One of the day’s goals was to find Johns Camp. If you look for information about Johns Camp, don’t be surprised if you can’t find anything. Johns Camp has only a fleeting mention in one trail guide book, and no mention at all on the JTNP website. It’s simply not a destination for most folks. I like these places.

DSCF3090“Johns Camp existed because of five claims collectively known as the Gold Hill Mine, located a little farther up the wash from the camp. The mine operated during the late 1920s and early 1930, and was owned by C.H. Wiser, Anvil B. Johns and J.A. Johns. I’m guessing the camp was named after one of the Johns.
There’s no trail to Johns Camp, but there is a fading dirt road that must have once provided access to the camp and mines.” — Cali49



This loose conglomeration of huge boulders and small formations lies up the wash from Johns Camp. Rock-climbing areas include Tiger Rocks, Bond Boulders, Vector Rock, Bandana Rock, and the most prominent of them all, Beak Boulder Rocks. Further up the wash can be found ruins built against a massive boulder and, nearby, a rusted Tin Lizzy automobile typical of old desert environments—or what is left of it anyway—beside the wash.
