I endorse this campground! Lamoille Canyon and the Rubies are a slice of heaven on earth, if you like that sort of thing
It's been quite some time since I camped there, but is still on my list to return to. I named my Border Collie after this place even. I have a painting I did in Lamoille that I could have sold many times but never wanted to part with it.
Also a bit further SE is the Great Basin National Park.... Not sure of your itinerary but its maybe 5 hours from Lamoillle. Looks like there are campgrounds there now, and wow for spectacular- it is worth a trip to see the Bristlecone pine habitat and Wheeler Peak. I love Nevada- so much beautiful country in NE Nevada especially.
