History of Camp Otis

Established in 1898 on the site of a previously unnamed camp in the former racetrack at Kapiolani Park in Honolulu, Hawaii. The camp housed members of the Philippine expeditionary force that had temporally been put ashore from their troop ship, the Arizona, when it was ordered on to Manila without them.

Camp Otis was abandoned on 7 Nov 1898 when the Arizona returned from Manila and the troops departed.
