Mountain Shadows Campground

Mountain Shadows Campground is a location in the Mojave Wasteland in Fallout: New Vegas. It is located southeast of Lake Las Vegas and northwest of Ranger Station Alpha.


This is a small campsite with a campfire on the eastern side with various minor loot scattered around. The vehicles here will explode if damaged. A copy of Today's Physician is on one of the tables at the upper campsite.


Mountain Shadows is actually three separate picnicking spots separated by faint rocky paths. Traverse these rocky warrens carefully to avoid a broken limb, or use the remains of the road leading across the railroad and back to the 188 Trading Post [5.02] to find your way to the main camp. The western picnic area below offers little but rusty kitchen wares and some food. The two picnic tables to the east, near the two burned-out cars, offer some scraps of food, and a Lad’s Life.Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide/Tour of the Mojave Wasteland

Behind the scenes

A script that manages the cazador presence at Bonnie Springs (VERShadows01QuestScript) states that the encounter was originally supposed to take place at Mountain Shadows Campground, but was moved and reduced in scope due to performance issues encountered on consoles. The script also includes commented-out references to greater numbers of both cazadores and Vipers gang members. The script comments state:

It's responsible for some encounters in the Mountain Shadows Campground - including a Cazador take-over.
Moved this encounter to Bonnie Springs, and reduced the number of spawns, so that we can run shenanigans on adorable consoles.
