Camp Floyd State Park
Information Courtesy Of Utah State Parks - Back To Utah State Parks
This former military post quartered the largest troop concentration in the United States from 1858 to 1861. About 400 buildings housed the 3,500 troops sent West to suppress an assumed Mormon rebellion. The troops returned East in 1861 for Civil War duty. Only a cemetery and commissary building remain as silent evidence of turbulent Camp Floyd.
Nearby Stagecoach Inn was an overnight stop on the historic overland stage and Pony Express route. The two-story adobe and frame hotel has been restored with original period furnishings. Take a step into the past and experience the history of the Utah War and Camp Floyd through media and artifacts. The story of the soldiers stationed at Camp Floyd and the citizens of Utah is briefly presented through a ten-minute film, historic photographs, media presentations, and original artifacts. Learn about one of the most important events and places affecting the early years of the Civil War. The Park is open daily 9:00 AM - 5:00 PM. The park is located in the town of Fairfield, Utah 25 miles southwest of Lehi on State Route 73.
