Inviting All Nevada Elks and Guests
5th Annual Elks Campout
Hole-in-the-Wall Place, Starr Valley, Nevada
August 6 – 9, 2020
Spend a weekend in beautiful Starr Valley at the Hole-in-the-Wall Place (approx. 30 miles east of Elko, NV). Enjoy the company of Elk from all over Nevada while camping, hiking, and sight-seeing. Either bring a tent or bring your RV (no hook-ups). Elevation ~6,000 ft. This is an historic ranch owned by a local family who graciously offered its use due to the tragic burning of Lamoille Canyon last autumn.
While there are no hookups for RVs (dry camping) or platforms for tents, there will be bathrooms (portable blue huts); campfire area; lodge kitchen tent; hiking; creek; scenic views; and Best People on Earth.
Travel I-80 approx. 30 miles east of Elko, Nevada, and take Exit 333 “Deeth – Starr Valley.” Turn right onto State Route 230 “Starr Valley Highway” and travel approx. 6 miles and turn right onto Mountain View Camp Road. (The road does not have a sign but is labeled on Google Maps) Mountain View Camp Road is a gravel road and the turnoff is on a sharp left curve in the highway with an old rusty guardrail. Travel 1/4 mile and the road turns to the left whereupon you will arrive at a locked gate with a Star and Horseshoe emblem. See the registration form for the gate combination. On maps, this road is marked “NF-140.” Continue through gate, up the hill, through a second unlocked gate, then up the hill to the right and above the meadow.
