The United Campground is located on the south end of Beaver. This tiny private campground is loaded with various deciduous trees that surround the camp sites, and border the road along the west side of the campground. A small creek and ravine border the campground on the north and est sides with a small riparian habitat. Shrubsteppe, grassland, and farmland surround three sides of the campground while the area to the south is disturbed private property and mostly open dirt.
On a stormy May morning in 2011, Jeff Bilsky and I decided to check out the first patch of trees on the south side of Beaver--with the weather, who knew what might have dropped from the sky. That patch of trees happened to be United Campground. We parked at the north end, and walked along the frontage road mostly near the ravine. There was plenty of migrant activity. WESTERN TANAGER, BLACK-HEADED GROSBEAK, BULLOCK'S ORIOLE, and YELLOW WARBLER all lit up the dreary morning. WESTERN KINGBIRDS lined the power liens, white MOURNING and EURASIAN COLLARED-DOVES could be heard in the campground. As luck would have it we found a WHITE-WINGED DOVE here--100 miles north of their typical range. Aside form our visit there have been stops made in June, December and January by others. Birding the general area and the sagebrush you might find LARK, BLACK-THROATED, and BREWER'S SPARROW in the breeding season. And during the winter raptors can be found i the area including BALD EAGLE and ROUGH-LEGGED HAWK. It's a quick stop here to check for migrants in the spring and fall, and if you have to make a pit stop in Beaver this is a nice break for birding!
From I-15 Exit 109 in Beaver, go east on SR-60 for .2 miles. Turn right onto Campground Road and go .1 miles till you reach the campground on your left..
