Historic California Posts:
Camp Clipper
(Camp Essex)
 
 
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.
