Camping in Lamoille Canyon

With the nice Spring weather upon us, it is time for the first camping trip of the year. Thomas Canyon Campground, located along Lamoille Creek, is the perfect spot for a weekend campout. Hiking, mountain biking, fishing, and bird watching opportunities are all available from the campground.

You can also relax in the shade of the aspen trees with a good book and and unwind. Reservations are recommended to ensure your spot, but on many weekends you can likely arrive and find an open campsite. Phone (775) 752-3357 or visit the Thomas Canyon Campground webpage.
