Overview

Overview

Powerhouse Group Picnic Area is set in scenic Lamoille Canyon, next to Lamoille Creek, at an elevation of 6,500 feet. Elko, in northeastern Nevada, is just 25 miles away. Visitors enjoy fishing and exploring local trails.

Natural Features:

The picnic area is situated at the mouth of Lamoille Canyon, a part of the beautiful Ruby Mountains. The area is a desert island brimming with wildlife, sparkling lakes and streams, wildflower-filled meadows and jagged peaks.

The shelter is surrounded by a stand of shady aspens. Lamoille Creek runs through the site.

Recreation:

Fishing for rainbow and brook trout is popular on the creek. Lamoille Canyon contains numerous hiking and horseback riding trails that lead to alpine lakes and scenic vistas. The canyon road itself is popular for scenic driving and road biking. Many rock-climbing routes can be found on the canyon walls.

Facilities:

This day-use picnic area was constructed in 2003 and is a fully accessible site. A large shelter covers several picnic and serving tables, two grills and a campfire circle with benches. Accessible vault toilets and trash collection are provided but drinking water is not available. A large parking area is adjacent to the site, accommodating 25 through 30 vehicles.
