The camp lies just 130 feet (40m) to the south of Hadrian's Wall Milecastle 71, only ΒΌ mile east of Burgh village, between the Wall to the north and the Kirkandrews-Burgh road to the south. The proximity of the Beaumont camp to the Aballava fort suggests that it may have housed the work-force which built the fort itself, though this is not proven.

The east side of the camp is complete and measures some 525 feet (160m) between the corner-angles, though only short lengths of the north and south sides are known and no trace of the western defences are visible. It is very likely that the camp was oriented towards the north, which may indicate an east-west measurement of around 100m if the standard Roman tertiata pattern (3:2 ratio) were followed.
