General Description

Sitting at an elevation of 5,200 feet Mill Creek was the site of a 1930's Civilian Conservation Corps work camp. Historic pillars of stone are still visible at the campground entrance. The popular campground is open year round, offering tall cottonwood trees in a canyon setting and is a pleasant spot to picnic, watch wildlife, and fish for rainbow and brook trout. Bird watching is a popular year-round pastime at Mill Creek. Some of the species you might see during your visit include the great horned owl, belted kingfisher, various species of hawks, woodpeckers, sparrows, wrens, swallows, pinyon jays, and the all time favorite, hummingbirds.

Facilities: 11 tent sites, picnic tables, fire rings, and accessible vault-type restrooms. Three recreational vehicle sites are also available.

Please note: Electric hook-ups, dump stations, and potable water are not available. The closest telephone is located along SR 305 about 19 miles south of the Mill Creek turn-off or in Battle Mountain. Campfires are allowed in the rings provided. It is a good idea to bring your own firewood. Discharge of firearms and fireworks within the recreation area are prohibited.

Directions from Battle Mountain: Take State Route 305 for 20 miles south until the sign for turn-off to the recreation area. From the turn-off you will travel four miles on a maintained gravel road to the recreation site entrance.
