The Mountain Shadows campground is a location in the Mojave Wasteland in 2281. 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. A car is present, and brushing against its trunk causes its height-adjustable suspension to fire one last time, knocking it into the air. A copy of Today's Physician is on one of the tables at the upper campsite.

Notable lootEdit


Mountain Shadows campground appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.

Behind the scenesEdit

Icon cut contentThe following is based on Fallout: New Vegas cut content and has not been confirmed by canon sources.

A script which manages the cazador presence at Bonnie Springs (VERShadows01QuestScript) reveals 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 the Xbox 360 and PS3. The script comments say in part:

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.

The script also includes commented-out references to greater numbers of both cazadores and Vipers gang members.
