Date of Stay: October, 2010
We stayed here for two nights. We've been traveling since April and I have never felt the need to write an RV Park review, good or bad, until now. I chose this place sight unseen because all the places would have been closed when we were supposed to arrive in Elko, and the fact that it gave Good Sam discounts. The nightly price reflects the additional charge for a dog, my 14 month old son and the five extra dollars I had to pay for internet access per day. This place is a complete rip off. The "free" internet wasn't working, so we asked the woman at the desk about it and she just said that it's been down for two days and the whole city's internet is down, and then walked away. (Elko has city-wide internet access) Funny thing is that I'm writing this review on the city's internet service after forking over the $5 per day fee. This place is not kid friendly, nor dog friendly at all. The dog walk area is a 2 foot wide strip of gravel that runs along the back lot against an embankment. There is zero grass and your dog has to navigate around all the trucks and trailers that are parked back there. If it slips, it's down the embankment it goes. What's really ridiculous is they have the audacity to charge an extra fee for the dog . It can't be outside, and honestly I wouldn't want to punish my dog in that way anyway. The other reviews that state that this place is just a large gravel lot are accurate. The trailers are on top of each other and it is loaded with long term people. We ended up having to close our windows and run the A/C the whole time because between the drunks blasting music and yelling, the traffic, trains and smell of diesel we would have never gotten any sleep. The sights are tilted and the way the sewer hooks up, if you're tank sits low it won't drain. For those reviewers that said it's fine for one night if passing through, 40 plus per night is not such a great deal.

We stayed here for one night. This is a beautiful, quiet state campground. The campgrounds are in a loop and you choose an unoccupied site and deposit the fee in an envelope. I was pleasantly surprised to find water and 20 amp service at the site. I expected nothing. There is a dump station that has a clean out hose at the entrance. It was sparsely occupied at the time, but the leaves were changing colors which made for a nice sight and deer were seen all around. I just wanted a place to rest for a night before driving on, but I wish we had stayed longer. The sight was long enough to leave my truck hooked up and not be in the road. I definitely would stay again.
