McCully Basin Camp

From Oregon Hikers Field Guide

Tent at the campsite near the first meadow (bobcat)

Description

This campsite is west of the McCully Creek Trail. Hiking along the latter at the south end of the McCully Basin, come to a sharp increase in the gradient of the trail as it rises towards the McCully-Big Sheep Pass. At this point, head off trail to the right. Cross over a creek, and then rise up a slope on an elk trail and through a screen of lodgepole pine and subalpine fir to the first large meadow, fringed by willow thickets, of the west side of the McCully Basin. You can find a couple of campsites in the trees here, or you can continue through this meadow to find a second meadow with seasonal ponds.

Sheep used to be brought into the Basin, so vestiges of the old shepherds' camps can be discovered at some of the meadows.
