Smith Mesa Prospector Camp

The Smith Mesa Prospector Camp is a location in the Mojave Wasteland in Fallout: New Vegas. It is situated to the south of the Cottonwood overlook and northeast of Blue Paradise Vacation Rentals.



Beware of Lakelurks and Fire Geckos as you traverse your way to an alcove in the mesa that Cottonwood Overlook sits on. Just outside the camp is a patient Prospector’s Dog and a Campfire. Inside, check the concrete block for a Star Cap. There’s other items, too:Fallout: New Vegas Official Game Guide/Tour of the Mojave Wasteland


The camp is a makeshift bunker in a small cave. A prospector's dog lives here, with no immediate sign of his master. In the surrounding area, there a few fire geckos and numerous lakelurks to the east.



This location can be used as player housing since items stored in containers do not disappear. There is also a bedroll, which is useful when playing on hardcore mode.


Smith Mesa Prospector Camp appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
