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; the larger of the two homes also has a small kitchen area and now serves as our clubhouse from Thursday through Sunday nights. 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, TO ENSURE THAT OUR CAMPGROUND MEETS YOUR EXPECTATIONS: We are a totally off-grid campground, 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 during wet years. 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 Ladytron, Mercury Rev, 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.

Spectacular Mountain Views
We were warmly greeted upon arrival. The mountain views from Rudy's Yurts are spectacular! Evening sunsets bid you "goodnight" and morning sunrises greet you "good morning". The yurt was cozy warm with a quilt lining, (morning was 32degeess outside), durable carpet, small electric heater, comfy couch, chair, end table, lamps, cozy bed with linens. The nearby shower trailer was clean with hot running water for showers.

Schellraiser is a very cool campsite. It has everything you need and more. It's easy to find and has amazing views. A special shout out to Brian who works at the site. He is incredibly friendly and helpful. One of the coolest guys I've met on my travels. There's also a music festival there at the end of May. I wish I could've stayed longer and hope to visit again in the future.

Desolate and Cold at Night
The site is as pictured, strange and desolate, tho the metal sculptures are good. No picnic table near our camping spot. The best thing was a hot shower. It was cold and windy so we hunkered down in the van at sunset. Better to stay in one of the lotus tents if possible.

What a great space in the middle of the Steptoe Valley. It’s actually the site of the SchellRaiser micro music festival for 3 or 4 days of the year. Night skies are spectacular! Very easy to find. Seemed very safe. Rudi was very responsive and we were warmly met by Brian who provided an orientation of the site. We easily found a level spot for our van camper. The toilets and showers are clean & wonderful. Super interesting space developed & managed by some very cool community conscious people. One of the best hip camps we’ve stayed at. Highly recommend !
