Topaz Internment Camp Site | 12 Utah Staycations

We headed out to the Topaz Internment Camp Site just outside of Delta on Sunday morning. While there isn't much out there, I really wanted to see for myself where the Japanese people were moved too. Since I had already cried the day before at the Topaz Museum, I felt much more prepared for the site itself. 

There was a sort of tragic beauty to the place. Nothing for miles, desert, sagebrush. I tried to envision thousands of people behind fences and living their lives as best they could. I probably would have failed and been bitter. 

You can drive around the whole site on dirt roads, some of which are not RV friendly. 

I'm glad I was able to show my kids and see it for myself.

When you visit, leave everything as you found it. They ask that all artifacts are left there as a reminder.
