Ely Elk Viewing Area

  The sagebrush has been cleared from this wide valley leaving grass as shared pasture for both cattle and elk. The elk migrate down from the mountains in fall and spring seasons but since we were a little late in the season we didn’t see any elk.

  The viewing area is a large gravel lot with picnic shelter, grills, vault toilets, and interpretive signs. I didn’t check the toilets for accessibility but the rest of the site is accessible.
   This is BLM land and there aren’t any signs prohibiting camping so we stayed two nights along with other RVers traveling along US 50.  Viewing Area  39.10219, -114.76022
