The Elko Lions Club has been overwhelmed with the communities outpouring of support.  Offers of help and donations have been greatly appreciated.  To date we have raised over $375,000. As you may know or have heard, Camp Lamoille suffered the loss of 10 of our 16 buildings which included the historic lodge and 6 A-frame cabins along with much of the greenery around the camp.  Cleanup of the rubble and debris was completed on Sunday June 2, 2019.  Our next task is to have the camp  power and water services restored by September.  We will then focus on refurbishment of the restroom/showers, replacement of the destroyed A-frame cabins, development of a new ½ acre parking lot and 8 new RV spaces with power and water hook-ups.  Thanks to all your generosity, we have secured enough funds in cash donations along with our insurance settlement to cover the cost of the above-mentioned projects.  Additionally, we are working with our engineers and the Forest Service to build an open-air pavilion over the foundation of the old lodge to serve as an outdoor BBQ/kitchen and main gathering area until a new lodge can be built.  While the rebuilding occurs, the camp will remain closed, but we are hoping to reopen for limited use in the spring/summer of 2020.   Please watch for updates on this page and our Facebook page, we look forward to hosting you again soon in the beautiful Ruby Mountains.
