Denio Camp Springs is located to east of Little High Rock Canyon.[1] Denio Camp Springs should not be confused with Denio located on the Nevada/Oregon border.

Denio Camp Springs is named for William "Billie" Denio, who homesteaded there. The location was also known as Billie Denio's Place. The four stockmen who were murdered at Little High Rock stopped at Denio Camp. Mr. and Mrs. Denio were the last White people to see the four stockmen alive.[2]
