Gas Plant Camp, Midwest's Major Suburb
How to find it: Retrace your route north; Gas Plant Camp is located about halfway between Old Lavoye and present-day midwewt on the east side of the road. (N-1/2 Section 36, T40N-R79W)

Oil DerekAbout the site: Gas Plant Camp was the largest camp after Midwest in the Salt Creek Oil Field, built to house the workers who operated the main gas plant (located between the Camp and Midwest). Many original residences are still occupied. Although several have been remodeled and some trailers moved in, Gas Plant Camp still gives the public a good idea of how the camps looked during the height of the oil boom in Salt Creek.
