This was our first travel trailer camping experience, new to RV'ing. The bathrooms were very clean, no showers though, water was available at a fill point. The camp hosts were very friendly and nice, paid $25 per night, all sites include 20a/50a power 3 different receptacles at the power box. The only negative was the fire pits were kind of tall and deep, so you get a smoky fire for lack of air, and the heat only hits your face. Add some big rocks to the pit to bring the wood up higher, that fixes that. The camp areas were very clean and lots of room on the paved camp area for your RV and chairs, etc., paved path to fire pit and picnic table, BBQ's are provided (briquette style). Wood is for sale at the hosts and 1 mile away is the Mount Charleston hotel with Starbucks, a restaurant and a bar, beers are $3 ea and extra bags of chips $1 (small bags). Not many other sundries so bring most of what you need. The campground is rather close to the main road, but it isn't a very busy road weekdays, especially at night. Weekends can be pretty busy in the summer at the campground. We have been local Las Vegans for 21 years, so we've seen all season up here. We didn't hear any traffic while sleeping. With a dry wash separating us from the road and some trees, we weren't too worried about the kids getting ran over, just keep a loose eye on them. Our are 3 and 4 years old. The campground was full, even though it was a weekday (summer), reservations are available for 8 of the sites and recommended, see website link for details. There are 2 double sites for slightly larger groups, 40 foot back in sites $25 for each night singles and $38 for double sites. The turn around is kind of tight for extra large Motorhomes, our F150 supercrew and 19 foot trailer had no problems getting in and out. We camped at Fletcher View Campground, Humboldt-Toiyabe NF in a Travel Trailer.
