We were attacked by some freak mutants from the caves. Please send back up.Halford

Camp Guardian is a location in the Mojave Wasteland, located southeast of Ranger Station Bravo. It is near the waters of Lake Mead, and it is one of the farthest NCR outposts found in the east.


Approaching the camp, the Courier may pick up a Camp Guardian distress call. The signal informs the Courier of an attack on the camp by an unknown group of mutant creatures. The voice in the call seems to be in dire need of help. The area surrounding Camp Guardian, on the path up to Guardian Peak, is populated by a few radscorpions of various types and quite a lot of giant rats. Traveling up the narrow path will lead to Guardian Peak and the Camp Guardian caves.


  • The Courier can turn off the radio signal by activating the ham radio.
  • Sergeant Banner, leader of the now-deceased NCR troopers found in the Camp Guardian caves, has left eleven log notes scattered around the camp and Guardian Peak.
  • There is a hollowed-out rock next to the Camp Guardian sign at the base of the mountain.
  • There are three entrances to the cave, with one of them being at the bottom of a lake, and another being near the campsite at the peak.


Camp Guardian appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

Camp Guardian is based on the real world location Guardian Peak[1], along the north shore of Lake Mead in Clark County, Nevada.
