Located on Lockwood Creek North Fork Trail 22W02 which starts at the Three Falls Boy Scout Camp in Lockwood Valley. This is a very steep trail. It is better to hike in from Mount Abel via the Mount Pinos Trail 21W03 and North Fork Trails north end.
This camp was used by sheep herders from the San Joaquin Valley in the late 1880's and 90's. At one time there were 2 grated stoves and rock rings. Water is available from 2 springs. The one in camp is often contaminated but the spring 1 1/4 mile up the trail is good.
Sheep Camp is one of the highest camps in the Los Padres at just over 8,400ft. The camp is along the North Fork Lockwood Trail and is most commonly accessed via the Campo Alto or Chula Vista trailheads.
