CAMP ALLISON, TEXAS. Camp Allison, on the North Llano River in southeastern Sutton County, was named for George S. Allison, who began grazing cattle on the free range of the area in 1885 and later bought land from which he contributed a free campsite and public park. The one-store supply point was granted a post office in 1927. In 1933 its population was estimated at twenty-five. That number remained steady until 1949, when the Texas Almanac deleted Camp Allison from its list of towns. The community's post office seems to have closed during the 1940s as well.
