Located on Barrows farm, for which it was named, this frame building featured bunks for 12, a nearby spring and good views of the Sterling Range.
Barrows camp was constructed in in 1931, for a cost $144.70, with help from Fred Mould, a prolific trail and shelter builder in the Sterling area.
Its simple design served as a prototype for both Duck Brook and Rolston’ s Rest except that these later shelters were converted to open face structures and Rolston’ s Rest eliminated the bunks.
Barrows camp was closed in 1994, when the Laraway Section constructed Roundtop about 700 feet from the summit of Roundtop Mountain.
