The Smith Mesa Prospector Camp is a location in the Mojave Wasteland.


The camp is a makeshift bunker in a small cave. A prospector's dog seems to live there; his master could be the dead prospector at Cottonwood Crater. In the surrounding area, there a few fire geckos nearby and numerous lakelurks to the east.

Notable loot

There is a Sunset Sarsaparilla star bottle cap on top of the cinder block behind the radio.


This location can be used as player housing, since items stored in containers do not disappear. There is also a bedroll, which is useful when playing on hardcore mode.


Smith Mesa Prospector Camp appears only in Fallout: New Vegas.
