Camp Eldorado

View from the Camp El Dorado site
Camp El Dorado (1867-1867) - A temporary U.S. Army camp established 15 Jan 1867 and supported by troops from Fort Mojave. Located along the west bank of the Colorado River in present day Clark County, Nevada. The garrison was established to protect the El Dorado mining district from hostile Indians. The post was abandoned on 24 Aug 1867.

The canyon was so desolate and forboding that upon entering the canyon one lieutenant wrote in his journal, "If the fires of Hell were to suddenly blow out, Eldorado Canyon would be the landscape remaining."
