The ghoul outpost (marked on local map and guide referenced[1] as outpost) is a small camp inside a building located west-southwest of Marigold Station. To get to it, turn left down the street as you exit Marigold Station until you come to a T in the road (one block). Turn left at the T and you will pass through a barricade that says "Welcome to Grayditch" and go up a little hill. Just as you come to the top of the hill, turn right. The entrance is the set of double-doors in the large building immediately to your right.

Inside are three hostile ghouls and a super mutant behind bars (which requires a Lockpick skill of 100).


Inside the building is a small square room with a burning barrel, a jail cell containing a super mutant, and numerous desks and junk scattered about.

Notable loot

  • There's a mini nuke in a bucket on a shelf in the back room with the caged super mutant.
  • Possible Stealth Boy in a cabinet next to the exit.
  • Laser rifle in the same cabinet. NOTE: It may not be there, as one of the ghoul wastelanders may take it.
  • Everything you need to make a Nuka-grenade is in the ghoul outpost; turpentine, Abraxo cleaner and tin cans in the back of the entrance room, Nuka-Cola Quantum in the back room.
  • There is a grenade box under the desk in the back room.


  • While the ghoul outpost does not show up on the world map, its entrance is clearly marked as "Outpost" on the local map. The entrance is two double-doors on a large building.
  • There may be two hostile wastelanders sharing the place with a super mutant outside the cage.
  • The terminal is a trap, and will explode if activated. One may be able to salvage a frag grenade through the rear panel and disarm the trap.


The ghoul outpost only appears in Fallout 3.
