Conrad was founded in 1905 by Colonel J.H. Conrad of the Conrad Consolidated Mining Company, and had about 300 residents at its peak. It was abandoned within a decade once falling silver prices drove the company into bankruptcy.
A new campground was opened on land adjoining the original town location in 2016.
