Loop B has denser vegetation with sites tucked in among large Ponderosa pine growing through the "midget" forest and some sites are near the rim of Devil's Canyon and overlook US Rt. 191. The widely spaced sites in this loop along with a heavy middlestory of scrub oak and juniper enjoy excellent privacy. Yucca plants are also visible throughout the campground. Traffic noise during the day can be heard throughout campground. Early settlers gave Devil's Canyon its name because it was a "devil" to get across.
