    Overview

    Overview

    Thomas Canyon Campground is located in the scenic Lamoille Canyon, in northeast Nevada, 30 miles from Elko. Visitors enjoy fishing Lamoille Creek and exploring many local hiking trails.

    Natural Features:

    The campground sits at the mouth of Thomas Canyon, a part of larger Lamoille Canyon, at an elevation of 7,200 feet. Both canyons are within the beautiful Ruby Mountains, a desert island brimming with wildlife, sparkling lakes and streams, wildflower-filled meadows and jagged peaks.

    Groves of aspen and cottonwood trees provide partial shade in the campground and beautiful fall color. Lamoille Creek runs through the site. All campsites afford breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks and canyon walls.

    Recreation:

    Lamoille Creek 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. Thomas Canyon Trail begins at the campground, leading past several waterfalls, through an alpine meadow into a glacial cirque.

    The canyon road is popular for scenic driving and road biking. Many rock climbing routes can be found on the canyon walls.

    Facilities:

    The campground offers single and double campsites, each equipped with a picnic table, campfire ring and grill. Some sites also have tent pads.

    Vault toilets, drinking water and trash collection are provided. A campground host is on-site.
