Bearclaw Camp is a small abandoned logging camp filled with rotting cabins, some look as if they have been burned, possibly by the Pacific Union Railroad which has an outpost just south of this location. According to Leigh Johnson, one of the many problems he has is "the railway company, the people who pay my salary, trying to get me to turn a blind eye to them burning down settlements up there."
Flora and Fauna
In Multiplayer, Bearclaw Camp is filled with a massive amount of Grizzly Bears, and upon entering Bearclaw Camp, most players will find a mob of bears rushing at them.
This is also the location of Brumas the Bear in multiplayer needed for the challenge Master Hunter II: Rank 5.
- According to a few NPC's in Blackwater, Bearclaw Camp is haunted by spirits from an Indian war that occurred long ago.
- NPCs can be heard saying, "What happened here?"
- At night, the player's horse will act very nervous and start making noises and rearing its front legs. However, it won't run away.
- The campfire at Bearclaw Camp will always be lit up when the player first arrives. However, if the player leaves and comes back it will be extinguished.
- When entering Bearclaw Camp, Marston might say "This place looks deserted", "What happened here" or "Where is everyone", much like he does at other deserted areas. Afterward, the player may possibly be attacked by a Bear, as they are common at Tall Trees.
- If strolling by Bearclaw Camp at night, turn the volume high and you will hear something breathing/sighing. However, it is not Marston as this has been heard standing/crouched/on a horse. The mysterious breathing sound can always be heard. You can't miss this sound. This noise constantly sounds every so often until 5AM every day.
- One of the dilapidated cabins contains a money chest, which will reward the player with $15-25 when opened.
