Looks about right. There were Multiple buildings with a main "street' between them. Probably doesn't look the same as I saw it since it was around 1988 the last time I was there. As I remember we went from Mitchell to Waterman and turned left. We then turned Left again through a gate. The camp was a ways out that road and on the Left.

well, if I'm correct, then it is my turn.
This is a sign NOT erected by the forest circus, but has been in place for many years,,you follow the signs to iron springs into the forest to see this,,


Name the area, the town below, or the lake nearby.

Fruita sounds like the correct answer to me. It looks like Fisherman has abandoned this thread so I vote you go ahead and post up a picture. Your turn Wallowa.
