Camp Lyon, sometimes called Fort Lyon, was established in 1862 during the Bald Hills War midway between Fort Anderson and Fort Baker. It was a temporary California Volunteer post located at Brehmer's Ranch on the Mad River, about 20 miles southeast of Arcata, California near Kneeland, California. Company K, 2nd Regiment California Volunteer Infantry was ordered to Camp Lyon December, 1861, and served there until the fort was abandoned [1]

With the abandonment of Fort Lyon, Fort Anderson took over its area of responsibility to meet that of Fort Baker.
