History of Davis Camp
Davis Camp was the former federal housing area
for the government workers who built Davis Dam. It literally was
Bullhead City back in the 1940's.
In it's heyday, over 100 homes were located at
Davis Camp along with a grocery store, gas station, post office,
recreation center, swimming pool, two churches, and various service
buildings, few of which currently exist.
Directly across the river from Davis Camp in
Nevada was another community that housed the contractor's camp. The
homes that remain at Davis Camp are much the way they were some 50
In 1982, the Bureau of Reclamation declared
the Davis Camp area surplus and in cooperation with the National
Park Service, and the Arizona State Parks Board, Davis Camp was
turned over to Mohave County for the purpose of developing it into a
regional county park.
Prior to its support role for dam construction
the area was used by steamboats to deliver supplies to the area.
One area of Davis Camp holds petroglyphs
created by American Indians. This area may be viewed from an
interpretive site, but is off limits for travel. Please respect this
area and do not trespass.
