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 years ago.

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.
