Historic California Posts, Camps, Stations and Airfields
Gull Lake Recreational Camp
On 15 March 1945, the U.S. Army acquired 5.00 permit acres from the Department of Agriculture, Forest Service (DAFS). Total acreage acquired for the subject site was 5.00.

The site was known as Gull Lake Spike Camp, CA. The site was situated in Mono County, 1/2 mile south of Lake Guard Station, and used by the U.S. Army as a recreational camp for Tonopah Army Air Field (AAF) personnel. Improvements included three barracks buildings, a mess hall, office, wash room, and water line.
This site does not show up on any period Army Station Lists. It is assumed that the camp was operated by Tonapah AAF's 422nd Army Air Forces Base Unit (AAFBU) and later Castle Field's 3028th AAFBU when Tonopah AAF became an inactive sub-base of Castle Field.

On 1 November 1947, 5.00 permit acres were returned to the US Forest Service.
