Shell Camp was an oil boomtown near the Shell Oil Company drilling operations northwest of Kilgore in the East Texas oilfield in Gregg County. The community was one of a number of such settlements, or camps, that were built by the major oil companies or larger independents during the oil boom of the 1930s. The town flourished for several years but all but disappeared after World War II, when the oil industry declined.
