Best in Nevada: Finalist
Named one of the best Hipcamps to visit in 2023.
The Schellraiser music festival offers a variety of seasonal camping options on our 80-acre private campground in the cool high desert of far Eastern Nevada's Steptoe Valley, near the small town of McGill. Our Lotus Belle-brand bell tents are solar powered and fully furnished, with king-, queen- and twin-size beds, Avocado-brand mattresses, rugs, loveseats, floor lamps, charging ports and wi-fi service. Our campground also features two solar-powered shipping container homes with bathrooms and rooftop decks; the larger of the two homes also has a small kitchen area. Car camping and pitch-your-own-tent sites without power are available, as well, as are furnished yurts without power. We currently have a heated six-unit restroom/shower trailer on site. PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: We are totally off-grid, in an extremely remote part of rural Eastern Nevada. To reach our campground, you must travel eight-tenths of a mile off the main highway, on a dirt road that is susceptible to flooding from record snowmelt from April to mid-July. Drivers with Teslas and other low-clearance vehicles are strongly advised to look elsewhere for lodging; Subaru drivers may actually enjoy the brief trip out. PLEASE READ ALL CHECK-IN INSTRUCTIONS, OUR FIRE BAN ADVISORY AND CAMPGROUND RULES BEFORE YOU BOOK YOUR STAY WITH US. ABOUT THE AREA: Schellraiser is just minutes away from the High Schells and Bristlecone wilderness areas, and within an hour's drive of Nevada's wildest mountain and desert scenery. High peaks, rugged canyons, wild rock formations, natural hot springs and ghost towns are all around us, and the surrounding area is teeming with wildlife, including the state's largest elk herd. ABOUT US: We're the home base of the annual Schellraiser micro-fest, which brings bands like Dinosaur Jr., Blonde Redhead, Asleep At The Wheel, The Joy Formidable, Blitzen Trapper, Old 97's, Houndmouth, Death Valley Girls, Titus Andronicus, Nikki Lane, Shannon Shaw and BRONCHO to the nearby McGill Pool Park each June.

We had so much fun here. The host was super nice, the land was well maintained, and we had an amazing view of the mountains and stars. I was worried we would freeze but the building is so well insulated and has a heater so we were so comfy. This is the perfect place for people who want to camp but don’t want to sleep on the ground.

Love love hip camp! Stayed three nights this trip in a tent set up with beds, heater, nightstand….very comfortable and appreciate the extremely clean bathrooms/showers🙏. Everyone there is so helpful and kind…..hard to find that combination these days….I will return again and again!

Site 4 - Schellraiser Car Camping
Neat location with great views. Far enough away from the highway that you couldn't hear the traffic. The bathroom/shower trailer was nice, but it was a bit of a hike from the car-camping sites. A blue room or two at the sites farther from the entrance would be nice. Overall a great value for the money!

Dissapointing off-season experience
We were here outside their normal Summer season (as told to me by the site manager). We didn't have a good time because the "Fully Furnished" tents didn't really have enough "furnishings" to be comfortable at the low Fall temperatures. The tent had a small electric heater that didn't do much except kill the entire solar energy system by 4 in the morning. The site manager said that in the Summer, the energy system gets crushed by people using their coffee makers - maybe it's time to invest in a bigger battery? Cooking or heating water is forbidden except out at the edge of a wind-blown dirt parking lot. However, even though the rules for the site explicitly stated no cooking or fires at the tent sites, several people were cooking and even had fire pits going so maybe they don't enforce that rule. Communication from the host and site manager was generally poor - we were expecting more detail about how the site works, but we never got anything. We had to go find a less freezing place to stay because we didn't want to sleep in our high desert cloths again and it was super expensive due the eclipse weekend - the owner and site manager were uninterested in giving us a refund for our unused 2nd night - but Hipcamp gave us a generous credit! The 6 room bathroom / shower trailer was brand new and absolutely spotless and warm - I wish I had slept in there!

Good time!
It's exactly as described and exactly what I expected. We had a good night's rest and the most important thing that I really enjoyed was the host was very communicative which when you dont know where you are or are going is very very very stress relieving. Thank you Brian and Rudy so much! Would definitely stay again if ever back in the area.

Great place to camp. I felt safe as a solo female car camper. Brian and Rudy were very friendly and accommodating. Super cool place!
