Overview

Overview

Timber Creek Campground is located in Duck Creek Basin, high on the Schell Creek Range, in eastern Nevada. It sits at an elevation of 8,500 feet, approximately 25 miles from the small city of Ely. Visitors to the area enjoy hiking, horseback riding, fishing and off-road vehicle riding, among other activities.

Natural Features:

The campground is situated in a dense forest of Engelmann spruce, aspen and white fir trees, which offers partial shade and beautiful fall color. Timber Creek flows past the campground.

Recreation:

Timber Creek is a perennial stream with rainbow and brook trout fishing. The High Schells Wilderness can be accessed from a trailhead located a half-mile up the road from the campground.

The partially paved, 38-mile Success Loop Scenic Drive is in the area, with views of the surrounding high desert and mountain terrain.

Facilities:

The campground has six group campsites, two of which can accommodate up to 100 people. The other four sites can hold up to 50 people each. Some sites require a short walk from the parking area, on a bridge over Timber Creek, to access the site pad.

All sites have picnic and serving tables, a campfire ring, grill and cement pads. Vault toilets and drinking water are provided. This is a "pack it in, pack it out" site, with no trash collection service.

Nearby Attractions:

Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park is a few miles southeast of Ely, providing an opportunity to see interesting historic stone ovens and hike an interpretive trail. The Northern Nevada Railway in Ely has a museum and offers train rides.

Cave Lake State Park is a few miles south of Duck Creek Basin along the Success Loop Road.
