Treasure Maps can be one of the best ways to farm for Gold Bars in Red Dead Online, and as you unlock new maps, you’re going to want to complete them. Most of the Treasure Maps you come across will feature multiple areas where the actual treasure can be located. To make these maps easier to complete, we’ve started putting together guides to all the treasure locations for each map. This time around, we’re going to be focusing on the East Watsons Treasure Map, and all the treasure locations associated with it.
All East Watsons treasure locations - Red Dead Online
As we stated above, there are usually multiple locations that a map’s treasure can be found at. To make finding these locations easier, we’ve included several images including pictures of the in-game map, as well as images of the overall area where the treasure can spawn for the East Watsons Treasure Map.
To find the East Watsons Treasure Map’s general location, head west of Wallace Station, to the wilderness area above the Little Creek River. There are four potential locations for the East Watsons Treasure Map to spawn its reward within this area. Looking for more treasure maps?

East Watsons treasure location 1 - Tree Trunk
The first spot can be found just east of the Stranger mission icon above the Little Creek River.
From the Stranger Mission, head down the road and then veer off to the left, into the trees. Here you’ll be able to spot a large tree trunk with an alcove at the bottom. If the treasure spawns here, the chest will be within the tree trunk.
East Watsons treasure location 2 - Ritual Site
The second spot that you can find is just northeast from the first location. Head to the area we’ve marked on the map below.
Once at the location marked above, you’ll be able to find this treasure in a lockbox or chest included in a ritual site that spawns when the treasure reward is here.
East Watsons treasure location 3 - Cave
The third location for the East Watsons treasure can be found east of the second location.
Head over to the area marked on the map above and then look for a cave entrance. If the treasure has spawned here, you’ll be able to head inside the cave and find a chest near the back, waiting to be looted. Watch out for bears in this area.
East Watsons treasure location 4 - Ritual Site
The final location for the East Watsons Treasure Map can be found south of the third location, just at the tip of the bear icon on the map.
This chest spawns at a ritual site that only appears when the treasure reward is there. Look out for it in the trees and clearings around this location.
These are the only four possible spawn locations for the East Watsons Treasure Map. Once you’ve located the treasure, the map will complete, and you can continue on to your next one.
