Historic California Posts, Camps, Stations and Airfields
Camp Bishop Creek
by Justin Ruhge
A temporary post, it was established sometime in 1863 near present Bishop, Inyo County. It was probably named for Samuel A. Bishop, a well known rancher who came to California in 1849, served as an officer in the Mariposa Battalion in 1851, and resided in Owen's Valley from 1860 to 1863.
