Part of the Desert Training Center's California-Arizona Maneuver Area, Camp Clipper
was also known as Camp Essex, the post was 42 miles west of Needles
and is adjacent to Interstate Highway 40 and northwest of the
town of Essex. There were actually two sites here, a temporary
camp site used first by the 33rd Infantry Division and a second
and more permanent camp used later by the 93rd Infantry Division.
