Spot Comments:


  • Instead of zipping along on I-80, get off and explore Lamoille Canyon in the Ruby Mountains, do a day hike from the end of the road, and then spend the night at Thompson Canyon CG.

    It is hard to beleive there was once a huge glacier flowing down this desert canyon.

  • Thomas Canyon Campground sits at the scenic junction of Lamoille Canyon and Thomas Canyon coming in from the south. There is access to the trail going up Thomas Canyon, take a walk up! The campground is along Lamoille Creek with several sites along the stream. This campground can be busy and its best to make reservations beforehand.
