Join us at Johnston’s Army Encampment

Camp Floyd State Park Museum

Camp Floyd State Park Museum is gearing up to host  Johnston’s Army Encampment on Memorial Day Weekend.  The event will allow visitors to experience camp life and participate in several activities performed by soldiers of Johnston’s Army. 

Come see re-enactors drill and fire period muskets, listen to live music, and tour the camp and learn some rich Utah history. Visitors can tour the cemetery and look upon the graves of soldiers who died in the service of our country. Children will also have the opportunity to learn military drill with a toy musket and wear a period uniform.

Don’t forget to visit the camps of civilian and military reenactors and play period games.

Of course, no trip to this park is complete without seeing artifacts dating back to the time Camp Floyd was occupied (1858-1861) in our museum. You can also tour the historic Stagecoach Inn — which was in operation from 1858-1947.

Come take a ride in a stagecoach on Memorial Day. The stagecoach will only be available on Monday, May 27 from 1-3 p.m. Join us for this family-friendly event. The events will be conducted from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. on both days. 

Museum entrance fees of $5 per person or $15 per family (immediate family only) apply. Stage Coach rides are $5 per person. Food will be available to purchase at the event.
