Camp Floyd State Park

Camp Floyd was an Army outpost quartering the largest troop concentration in the United States from 1858 to 1861. Troops were sent there to put down the "Mormon rebellion," after rumors that Mormons in Utah were rebelling against the US government. No military action was needed but the troops stayed to monitor the Mormons, explore the Western Frontier and provide safety for immigrants moving west to California, Oregon, and Washington.

When the Civil War broke out, troops were ordered to return to the east. They dismantled the camp before they left, leaving only the cemetery and commissary building. Still, many relics from the camp are on display. The Overland Stage and Pony Express passed through the area and an inn was established for overnight stays. It has been restored and serves as the museum at the state park. Read more...
