Another reason is that this was the accepted use pattern prior to it being absorbed into the Park in 1995. The area has not been in the Park long, still being managed under an interim plan. Until 1995, the area was a BLM multiple use area. In fact, only a couple of decades ago, it could be argued that the area had an established resident population.
In my opinion, the ugliest human additions to the area are the concrete vault toilets, which were recently added by the Park. Virtually everything else was already there before it was taken over by the Park.
