It is a massive mountain which is home to a forest and winding dirt paths. Many civilians drive on the Mount Claflin paths daily, so it can have a lot of bad traffic and oncoming vehicles, which is made worse because some mountain paths are quite narrow.
The north ridge is part of Pleasant View and takes up the majority of that neighborhood, but the peak of the mountain itself is not part of any neighborhood or district. So unlike most above-ground areas, it is not named on the map and no gang owns it. Because of this, there are no screen notification when entering the area.
- Behind a waterfall on Mount Claflin itself.
- A tunnel under Mount Claflin, accessible from Sommerset.
- A tunnel on the east side of Mount Claflin, which is visible from Sunsinger.
North of the mountain's peak, there is a small camp consisting of several lodges next to a lake with a pier. The lodges are particularly dilapidated and run-down, but some Stilwater civilians fish on the pier, and there are fish swimming in the lake.
The camp area is split in half due to a river ravine, which can be crossed by doing a stunt jump over the ravine.
There are 2 tombstones beside the pond, each have the same developer's name engraved on them.
Camp Claflin is feature in the mission "America's Next Top Scientist".
- The mountain is named after Chris Claflin, the Level Artist for Saints Row and Associate Project Art Director for Saints Row 2.
- In Saints Row, there is a path visible on the map that leads roughly to the peak of Mount Claflin, but the path is inaccessible.
- All Snipes 57s taking off from the Wardill Airport runway crash into the mountain. This may be an unintentional result of an incomplete path since it was not expected that players would follow the planes, as all planes have slightly different behaviours when reaching the end of the path.
- There is a tunnel entrance of the west side of the mountain in Pleasant View, the tunnel comes out on the north end behind the movie screen, which can be driven through in a car.
- There is a hockey mask in between some trees near the lake. The mask is one of many Improvised Weapons and is called "Bones". After carrying it away from the original location, it turns into a human skull.
- Both the hockey mask and the lake camp are references to the Friday the 13th franchise, which features a camp at a lake, and a character wearing a hockey mask.
- To the west of the Claflin tunnel, just before the bridge, there is an small hill with an area where The Protagonist's feet do not touch the ground.
- On one of the shanties is a sign for "Blake Low's Wigs and Whiskers".
- Because Mount Claflin is not a neighborhood, it is not possible to use Taxi Service or to start any job Diversions.
- This does not apply to the north section of Mount Claflin, as it is located in Pleasant View.
