Camp Adair

A geocachers guide to Camp Adair

                             Buildings that are still on site

This is one of the three incinerators that used to serve the camp. It is the southernmost of the three, and the only one left. It is located on private property. The owner has resided the building, removed the chimney, and replaced the original sliding door with  an overhead door that looks like an old-fashioned double door. 

                                                 Fire house #5

 The Fire House #5 cafe and convenience store is the acutal fire house #5 that was built for the army base. After the Air Force left, it was a pub for awhile, but suffered a fire that badly damaged the interior. It has been restored, and displays many photos and artifacts from the era. The cafe faces 99-W, and the store is located on the other end where the three firetruck bays were. 

 

                          Note to those who do not have a GPS

      If you would like to locate some of these sites without a GPS, try this. At the Memorial Garden, where the monuments are for each Division, there is a map of the Camp. It shows the North-South Avenues (A, B, C, D etc), but does not name the East-West streets. Here is how to determine that. If you came in off of highway 99-W, the road made a dogleg to the right. This is now 1st Street South, and each street south of that increases up to 12th street South. If you had parked at the start of the dogleg, and walked through the gate to the North, the street running parallel to 1st street South is 1st street North. And of course, each street North of that increases up to 12th street North. Happy hunting!  Who knows, this could turn into a  new hobby, either researching history, or trying geocaching.
