Utah State Park: The Camp Floyd Commissary and Museum were constructed in 1858 by the soldiers of Johnston’s Army. The Commissary Building served as a store of military equipment and provisions. It was sold to the Beardshall Family at auction in 1861, when the army was recalled for the Civil War. The building was relocated to its current site where it was used as the family’s home in Fairfield. All other camp buildings were either sold, dismantled or destroyed. Today, the Commissary Building serves as the Camp Floyd museum.
Across the street from the Camp Floyd Commissary is the Stagecoach Inn, a two-story adobe and frame hotel built by John Carson in 1858. The Stagecoach Inn was the first stop south of Salt Lake City on the Overland Stage Route and also a stop on the Pony Express Route. There is also a rentable historic schoolhouse and a historical cemetery.
Well-prepared visitors interested in the Pony Express can follow the historical route on an unpaved road into the west desert to another important stop on the route at Fish Springs National Wildlife Refuge, one of the most remote refuges in the lower 48 states. The nearby Utah Valley offers an array of local restaurants and cultural attractions. Make a day-use reservation on the Utah State Parks reservation site
