Overview

Overview

Terraces Overnight Group Area is a popular location for weddings, church activities, family reunions and company picnics. It is located in scenic Lamoille Canyon, 35 miles southeast of Elko, Nevada. Visitors enjoy fishing in Lamoille Creek and hiking on many local trails.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated at an elevation of 8,000 feet, high in Lamoille Canyon, within the beautiful Ruby Mountains. The area is a desert island brimming with wildlife, sparkling lakes and streams, wildflower-filled meadows and jagged peaks.

A dense stand of aspens covers the picnic area, offering partial shade and pretty fall colors. Most sites afford breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks and canyon walls.

Recreation:

Lamoille Creek runs just outside the picnic area and is a popular stream among fly-fishermen. The creek contains brook and wild rainbow trout.

Lamoille Canyon offers numerous hiking and horseback riding trails that lead to alpine lakes and vistas. The canyon road is popular for scenic driving and road biking. Many rock climbing routes can be found on the canyon walls.

Facilities:

This site is a group overnight tent camping area that can accommodate up to 75 people throughout its nine individual family picnic sites or the facility can be reserved as a whole. If not reserved, the individual sites can be used on a first-come, first-serve basis for day use picnics.

Sites are equipped with picnic tables and grills. Vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided. A large paved parking area can accommodate up to 17 vehicles. Footpaths within the site are also paved.
