In the past century, Bitter Springs was used by the Great Khans as a semi-permanent community. Due to prolonged conflict with the NCR, the Great Khans were eventually tracked back to Bitter Springs by NCR forces. The assault that rapidly followed was known as the Bitter Springs Massacre due to the NCR’s First Recon mistakenly shooting down dozens of young, old, and wounded Khans who attempted to escape through a southern slot canyon from a location called Coyote Tail Ridge. Today, Bitter Springs hosts refugees from settlements Caesar’s Legion are razing; a situation that is becoming increasingly untenable.
The camp consists of NCR tents to the north and refugee tents at the south end of the camp. The doctor's tent is amongst the NCR tents facing the refugees and Captain Gilles can usually be found sitting by the campfire at the center. As you approach the area from West by Southwest are 12 graves, six on each side of the path, containing miscellaneous loot. Great Khan iconography and graffiti can still be found about the camp illustrating their previous ownership.
In one of the tents there is a picture of a ranger lying on the ground with 4 arrows in his side, a caption below reads, 'A GOOD RANGER'. A similar picture can be seen on a road sign on one of the loading screens.
