Catoctin in Yavapai County, Arizona was a small gold mining camp. The camp was established around 1902 and received a post office on December 29 of the same year. It is located on upper Hassayampa Creek, sixteen miles southeast of Prescott, Arizona. Only a handful of mining buildings and homes were constructed and on average the town was home to about twenty people. The Catoctin and Climax mines were nearby. On July 15, 1920 the post office was closed.[1][2]
