Just about every camp marked on the BLM map is a pretty good camp, isn't anyplace you have your tent pitched on the owyhee a "good" camp You can find good hikes just about anyplace where you can see that you can hike "up hill" Hiking from Rye Grass Hot Spring, and traversing around Pruitts castle/Lambert Dome/a small part of Chalk Basin makes a great all day hike, with the hot spring to soak your bones at the end. What most people think of as chalk basin is in correct. The actual chalk basin is further to the north from Pruitt's/Lambert Dome.

Hiking up to Devil’s tower from Greely Bar hot spring area is also great.

Be on the lookout for fossils, distal end of a camelid femur (2 to 7 million years old) picture below. Interesting factoid: the paleo-studing-peeps believe camels originated in North America.

A trail map from my personal set for you.

There are also good camps for small groups not on the map near key interesting features that are not appropriate for web distribution, but if you make enough trips you will discover on your own
