Nestled at the top of the South Ponil Canyon, French Henry is the site of a former gold mine. There are no overnight campers, but you will find very friendly staff that will teach you how to blacksmith and pan for gold. If you are bored you can checkout the mining and geology museum. This camp is a must visit!
