This is a large campground, but some of the spots are fairly cramped. I always reserve the group site at the end. Lots of large rocks, and like all of JT there is no water. Site has toilets, fire rings, and desert sunshine.

Kind of crowded but beautiful place to stargaze if there's not too much light pollution from other campers.

Amazing views, easy to find, and TONS of space. Well-secluded, bonfire pits, and very close to restrooms & right next to Ryan Mountain hike!

Sheep Pass was an awesome site! We had G3, and there were only 8 of us but there was a TON of room. It had 3 picnic tables, a large grill and a large fire pit with a grill on top. Bathrooms were close by, but no sinks or running water. Beautiful and spacious!

Great group site. We stayed at site #03, HUGE site! 3 picnic tables, big fire ring with grill option, big bbq grill. Right next to a rock formation, short walk to bathrooms, one of the more private sites in Sheep Pass as the Rocks separate you from the others.
