Things To Do


Cottonwood Campground is located in the Green Mountains. The Green Mountains are not just rich in the forests and sage grasslands that gives them their name-- the surrounding area is rich in minerals. A visitor to the area can see the evidence of years of mining on the area, but the views are still lovely, and wildlife watchers can often view the large herd of wild horses that lives here. Wild Horse Point is a developed overlook picnic area for watching for the mustangs and for enjoying the spectacular vistas of the area.
