About Dove Creek Camp

Brigham City, Utah

Brigham City is located in northern Utah in Box Elder County. It has a population of about 20,000 residents. It is located on the western slope of the Wellsville Mountains, a branch of the Wasatch Ranger at the western terminus of the Box Elder Canyon.

Dove Creek Camp Information:

Dove Creek Camp is located near the Golden Spike National Historic Site on Highway 83 near Promontory Point (38 miles west of Brigham City, Utah). The Sinks of Dove Creek are near Kelton and can be reached by a primitive railroad grade. Visit the Historic Site before venturing out alone into the desert to find the Dove Creek Camp!

The Sinks of Dove Creek was the primary Chinese camp that was utilized during the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad. The project was completed in May of 1869 at Promontory Point and the Dove Creek Camp was abandoned when Chinese laborers returned to the West Coast.

Thousands of Chinese workers were killed during the construction of the Transcontinental Railroad due to the unsafe working conditions and dangerous jobs they took on.
