Ammunition Igloo (also known as Building 88) was a bunker used for arms storage at Camp George West, Golden, Colorado. It was built in 1940 and was "typical for the period, having a concrete arch with earth covering. A stone facade with stepped parapet with concrete coping utilized basaltic stone rubblework."[2][3]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1993.[1]
