Located in clearing on east slope of Pico Peak. Log construction built in 1924 with bunks for 8 Spring is located 100 ft north on LT. [GB 50th Anniversary Edition 1960 (16th)] cost was over $450 [LT News, Dec 1925]

This shelter has had a face-lifting and is now quite livable Two college students under the direction of Roy Buchanan spent a week repairing the roof and-bunks. They also built a new retaining wall at the front. In the future, Roy recommended that a new building rather than repairs would be in order as the foundation logs are rotting badly [LT News, Feb. 1953]

This camp was replaced by Pico Camp (2nd)
