The Kamchatka Peninsula is a peninsula located in eastern Russia, across the Bering Strait from Alaska and on the Pacific Coast of Siberia. T he region is also prone to snowfall due to being part of the wider Russian Far East.

The location was home to a prison camp.



In 1985, the soldiers of the Red Army stationed at the camp fed a prisoner to a Demogorgon from another dimension, although they chose not to feed an American prisoner, possibly Hopper, to the creature. When one guard moves toward a cell door, the other one says (in Russian): "No, no. Not the American."

The first season 4 teaser trailer revealed that Jim Hopper was alive and was a prisoner in Russia, working on railroad construction.


  • It may be the same Russian facility depicted in the opening of the episode Suzie, Do You Copy?, however, this is unconfirmed.
  • The Kamchatka scenes seen in the teaser for Season 4 was filmed in Vilnius, Lithuania, as confirmed by executive producer Shawn Levy in an interview.
  • Fans have speculated that the American prisoner seen at the mid-credits scene of the finale of Season 3 was Jim Hopper, as he was referred to as ’the American’ throughout the season by the Russians.
