CAMEL DRAW. Camel Draw rises five miles southeast of Dome Peak in east central Hudspeth County (at 31°12' N, 105°09' W) and runs southeast for twelve miles before joining Seventeen Draw to form Eagle Flat Draw, five miles southwest of Allamoore (at 31°03' N, 105°06' W). It traverses an area of steep to gentle slopes surfaced by variable soil that supports scrub brush and sparse grasses. The name of the draw may come from the camels imported to Texas by the United States government in the 1850s and later used on an expedition from Camp Verdeqv to the Big Bend.
