Great campsite that's not too expensive or too far from the southern rim. Also, there were some elk that liked to roam around the campsite. They aren't bothered by humans, maybe because everyone leaves them be and just take pictures from a distance.
The people here, mostly teenagers on vacation, are super friendly. I stopped her, midway through the first leg of my road trip, to just check it out. I had my dog with me, and they allowed me to bring her along on the tour, which is only $8/person. Great history to this place, and a fun 45 minute break from driving.
This campsite was absolutely fabulous and breathtaking. I was not expecting so much beauty in NE Nevada. I would love to come back and stay here longer than one night. The hikes, the surrounding nature, and everything about it was just perfect.
Stopped here on June 21, 2014. It was a great and slightly odd spot, but very enjoyable. The best way to get here (from the west) is to take the Imlay exit, turn right, then make an immediate left onto the first street. Continue onto the dirt road and Thunder Mountain Monument will be on your left. If you pass it on the freeway then you went too far.
