Wet/Dry Routes Markers

With their indepth research of the Santa Fe Trail, the Wet/Dry Routes Chapter felt some sites and trails needed more information. With this in mind the Chapter has placed in prominent locations along the Santa Fe Trail, "Interpretive Markers" to do just that. On these pages you will find a photo of the markers and the text placed on them.

Plain Camp Interpretive Marker       Plain Camp Interprietive Text


South of this point near the Arkansas River was Plain Camp, one of several campsites on the Santa Fe Trail identified in an 1842 itinerary published by Charles Folsom. By conjecture, the campsite was so named because the location had no characteristics to distinguish it from other similar places along the Arkansas River.
