BLM - Near highway, popular with large RV about 10 ac with pond. Some sites are secluded. <br /> <br />The abundance of water in this general area makes it a great spot for bird watching as well as other wildlife. Burros are not an uncommon sight and there are a variety of dragonfly species around the pond and river. Fishing is permitted, but only catch and release. The tall reeds and other vegetation made possible by the pond shield it from road fairly well, creating a sense of seclusion despite being just off a busy thoroughfare. The pond is man-made, albeit indirectly. The area was previously used for prospect pits during the mining era, and later as a quarry during construction of the highway.
