The fieldstone and concrete seating area was built on the natural slope below the mesa’s edge.  It forms an inverted U-shape that is flanked by concrete mortared stone walls, which are buttressed for support.  An associated footbridge, crossing a drainage provides access from a parking lot.  Listed under Historic Resources of Camp George West Multiple Property Submission.
