The Whiterun Military Camp

Whiterun Military Camp is a Stormcloak camp set up just east of Pelagia Farm, and just west of the Honningbrew Meadery, for the battle for control of Whiterun.

It is used as a final staging area for the battle and is also where the Stormcloaks' catapults are stationed and fired from.

Whiterun Military Camp[edit]

As soon as you arrive during the quest the camp is in an uproar, with the catapults firing flaming missiles at Whiterun. The camp consists of a command tent occupied by a Stormcloak Soldier studying a tactical map of Skyrim on a wooden table. Outside are four small one-man tents, while to the right of the command tent is a campfire with three more small one-man tents in a row nearby. None of the small tents have bed rolls or hay piles to sleep on. There are three catapults, each manned by a single Stormcloak soldier. The catapults can be used by activating them to fire and reload. To the west of the main camp Galmar Stone-Fist is giving a motivational speech to a group of ten Stormcloak soldiers.


  • The camp will appear at the beginning of the quest Battle for Whiterun regardless of the side chosen in the civil war, but a map marker will only be added if siding with the Stormcloaks. In that case it is immediately listed as discovered, meaning you can fast travel there straight away.
  • There is a corundum ore vein a few steps southeast of the large tent.


  • After the battle, the camp's map marker will be removed, but the camp itself won't be disabled, it will remain, even if the Empire wins, along with a single, non-hostile Stormcloak Soldier inside the main tent.
