Created by the troops of Johnston's Army who were originally sent to quell a nonexistent Mormon rebellion, Camp Floyd then served as a monitoring post in the Western Frontier and as a way for those crossing the immigrating further westward to move with a greater degree of safety.
Now a state park, Camp Floyd offers many activities for visitors including planned events. One of these events is the Johnston's Army Adventure Camp which has children participate in some of the activities and day-to-day living that troops would have performed during the time of Johnston's Army, making learning history an interactive and fun event.
