About 30 min outside of Flagstaff off some random dirt road.

Look up "The Red Ghost". Neat legend regarding the after-effects of the camel experiment termination.

They originally came into shore at Harrisburg , TX. They quartered at what is now Sims Bayou and I45 South before moving on to Camp Verde, TX.

Some say wild camels survived into the 50's in Arizona. Still around in the 30's for sure.

Cool. There’s a similar marker at Camp Verde.

Jefferson Davis tried to create the camel corps when he was in the senate and pushed it through as Sec of War. To prove that they could be tamed, he would ride them in Jackson, MS. Everybody hated them and a law was passed making it illegal to ride camels in Jackson. That law is still on the books.

A Jeff Cooper story about Slim Pickens

Slim went in to a Colorado Wildlife Department office and asked for a license to hunt camel. The agent says, "Sir, we don't have any camels in Colorado." Slim says, "Well, you don't have any deer, either, but you sell licenses fer'em."

Came in here to ask about that.  Too bad some of them aren't still alive somewhere out there.

Probably not.  As one of the few people in GD who has actually eaten camel, I can attest that camel burgers taste like ground cardboard.

A few of us bought ground camel at the butcher in 1993 in Al-Khobar Saudi Arabia.  At the butcher shop they had the camel's head hanging on a hook with a cigarette in its mouth.  The meat was so dry that we had to add an egg to it just to get the stuff to stick together enough to form patties.  We charcoal grilled then, and they sucked.

Hadji Ali's (Hi Jolly) grave is marked in or near Quartzite, and I think here used to be a Camel Corps marker in Apache Junction.

I found a death marker on Jim Jennings' ranch near Williams, commemorating the demise of an 18 month-old child. It's a marble pylon with his name and date of death, but I doubt it's a grave marker. It seems that the family would have had to return to the site with the marker years after the event. I wish I could recall the poor kid's name.

ETA- correcting my horrid, hungover punctuation.

In the phosphate matrix of Central Florida they find camel's teeth and bones all the time.  I have a couple of them in my collection.  Also ancient horse's teeth and bones.

"Project Shoal" has a cool plaque in the desert about 30 miles south east of Fallon NV.
It was an underground nuclear detonation in the '60s to do seismic research or something.
Been there recently, but I have no pics.

Shoal was just the one shot as far as I know. The longer term Project Plowshare was interesting as well - and you can find the markers all over the nation.

I get fresh camel ever couple months, and its amazing. Its better as a stew meat, slow cooked rather than grilled. Tastes very much like veal. I need to go get a few pounds this friday, now that I think about it.

A Vela Uniform test; designed to find and measure underground nuclear detonations.  I've been there, back in the mid-80's.

The Beale Camel trail like OP talked about runs through our elk area. There's just little signs along the route. I haven't seen the marker OP showed.

Not sure how middle of nowhere this would be considered, but on a county road in the middle of miles of farmland in NW Ohio are markers for an old Shawnee town site and the homestead of the first permanent white settler in that county. He was my wife's ancestor. Nearby is the site of a fort from the same era, Ft Amanda.
