Overview

Crookston Ranch is a turn-of-the-century ranch. History claims Butch Cassidy would use the Crookston to rest and re-horse when on the run from the Federal Marshals.

The site is located on publicly managed land due to an error in the filing of homestead papers. The associated spring is fed by ice cells in the adjacent sand dunes.
