The Mill Creek BLM boondocking Locations are You cannot make a reservation for this site but there is usually plenty of space for everyone. They are open year round but limited to RV and trailer lengths of 28 feet.This is a wonderful, tranquil location, and we will certainly return the next time we're in the area! The majority of the twelve or more campsites have garbage cans, fire rings, and picnic tables. Several of the campsites in the front are well-shaded by cottonwoods. On August 13th, there was one additional camping group present. Two bathrooms, each with two stalls, were in outstanding condition. The morning after our one-night stay, a BLM employee arrived to clean the bathrooms and empty the trash.
The Mill Creek Campground is a wonderful site to stop for a picnic, a stroll, to listen to the creek, or to set up camp for several days. Mill Creek Campground, located approximately 30 miles south of Battle Mountain, Nevada, strikes a nice balance between being surrounded by nature and being close enough to town in case you forgot something for your camping excursion. During the Great Depression, the CCC, or Civilian Conservation Corps, was established as a public labor relief program to assist unemployed individuals. In its nine years of operation, three million young men participated in the CCC program, which provided them with shelter, clothing, and food, as well as a $30 monthly wage. When the CCC program ended, the Mill Creek CCC Camp was ultimately closed and the area was quickly designated as a recreation area; it has remained so ever since. Today, approximately 30,000 people visit the Mill Creek Campground annually to experience the area's natural beauty and proximity to other incredible recreation opportunities
