AAA Editor Notes
Camp Floyd/Stagecoach Inn State Park and Museum is just e. of SR 73 at 18035 W. 1540 N., following signs. The largest army encampment in the United States was at this site from 1858 to 1861. More than 3,500 troops were stationed here to suppress a Mormon rebellion that never materialized; they were recalled back east in 1861 due to the Civil War.Only two of some 400 former structures remain—the commissary (which houses the museum) and the Johnstone Army Cemetery, .5 miles west on SR 73. The nearby Stagecoach Inn, furnished with period items, was once a rest stop for Pony Express riders.Picnicking is permitted.
