The Cottonwood overlook is a location in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. The once-popular scenic overlook is now an abandoned promontory, offering an unobstructed view of the Legion camp at Cottonwood Cove below.


This area consists of a few boarded up beach homes, two dumpsters, and a truck that contains radioactive waste transported here from San Onofre. There is a campfire located in front of a trailer.


The radioactive waste truck can be opened in order to spill the barrels onto Cottonwood Cove below. This is for an optional part of the quest Eye for an Eye.


Cottonwood overlook appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenes

Cottonwood overlook is based on the real world location of Cottonwood Cove lower campground in Clark County, Nevada.
