This is the best kept secret in Nevada. Great hiking camping fishing and day picnics. The fall is beautiful with great Aspen colors and waterfalls. There are several mountain lake to hit to. Fishing for brook trout in the canyon steams is worthwhile.

We live nearby and Lamoille Canyon is spectacular. You frequently see bighorn sheep and if your eyes are good enough, mountain goats. There are campsites that accommodate RV's. This really is a hidden treasure that you would never know existed when driving by on I80!...More

Such a beautiful walk. Went on the Lions Camp trail along the river. The beaver ponds, rock formations and light play was breathtaking. Will go back again and again.
