Cave Springs Cowboy Camp was a line camp operated by the Scorup-Sommerville Cattle Company in what would become Canyonlands National Park, Utah. The site consists of a cave-like shelter under a rock overhang on the side of a small canyon. The canyon was arranged with a fence across the opening that allowed its use as a cattle pen. The site contains a great deal of material that was abandoned as the site became disused. The shelter was used from the late 1890s through the late 1960s when the park was established.
