The Steam Pools

I found a small Goblin village called The Steam Pools north of Silithus, south of Feralas, next to a lake. Is that part of some old content or what? There's some NPC's there including a head chef, but there's no quests or anything.

It's a resort and I'm under the impression that it does offer some amenities.

If you find and touch the Mysterious Camel Figurine you will be teleported to am instanced version of the Steam Pools where you can get the Grey Riding Camel.

As a dedicated explorer of Azeroth I've found and documented in my map notes over 60 places like the one mentioned here. From abandoned camps unreachable by ground, to hidden lakes, caves, future hideouts, spooky stuff, forests and NPCs. I have only 4 words for you buddy...

Challenge yourself to travel..

Eye candy everywhere.

It's called an Easter Egg. There are lots in the game.

It was probably intended for something for Cataclysm that ended up getting left out.

These things add flavor even if they aren't used for anything.

There are a lot of "easter egg" type type things hidden in areas where nothing is at.

I have encountered critters with weapons, an island with fishing gear and a skeleton, a faerie ring, dwarves skiing (not sure if I spelled that right) on the mountain that makes ironforge, a flag with a skeleton on the top of said mountain and other such things while exploring.

Surely it's Cata content, considering I flew over there at level 65 and got attacked by level 83 mobs.

Yep, the 3rd posting down and here is the correct answer. Yet it doesn't stop the parade of "know-it-all" and their "easter egg" is the answer.
