The camp is a makeshift bunker in a small cave. A prospector's dog seems to live there; his master's location and fate are unknown. In the surrounding area, there a few fire geckos nearby and numerous lakelurks to the east.
- There is a Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap on a cinder block behind the radio.
- It is possible for the camp to be used as a house, since it is secluded and the items that can be stored in the containers do not vanish over time.
Smith Mesa Prospector Camp appears in Fallout: New Vegas.
- Xbox 360 It is possible to become permanently stuck in the corner near the bedroll and the stack of cinder blocks (where the healing powder is), forcing you to reload to a previous save or fast travel.
- PC On the west side of the rock (in which the cave is located), there is a glitch in the game map that allows you to go inside of the rock. There will be invisible walls inside that will make it difficult for you to exit.
