Camp Pollack
 
 
A temporary camp established sometime in June 1864, and lasting for about a month, as a base of operations for a regional reconnaissance, it was situated almost on the newly surveyed boundary line between California and Nevada. At the time the post was established the area was in Lake County, Nevada. But since the survey it has been divided between Washoe County, Nevada, and Lassen County, California. The camp was occupied by Captain A. B Wells, commanding Company D, 1st Nevada Volunteers, during the expedition from Fort Churchill to the Humboldt River, by way of Smoke Creek Valley, Nevada, and Surprise Valley, California.
