Beautiful Forest Service CG above (about 7,000') Wells. Sites are gravel, sort of level, private with fire pits and picnic tables. There are a couple of sites that larger rigs can get into. The drive up from Wells is a good haul, some 8 to 10% grades, but well worth it. Be sure to drive up to Angel Lake (not in your RV) for some spectacular views and, if you enjoy fishing, the lake is home to both Rainbow and Cutthroat. The CG is a popular spot for locals and can get busy on weekends but is still quiet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
US Forest Service campground in lovely setting in mountains above Wells. No hookups and be sure you have water before you come. There was a water faucet but it had a warning sign stating to boil the water 15 minutes before using it. We detached the 5'ver and drove our truck up to Angel Lake where there is another campground. We were glad we did. The road up the mountain to Angel Lake has gorgeous views but has some tight turns. Not recommended for big rigs. Plus the campsites at Angel Lake are small, though we were told later there were two sites long enough for bigger RVs but how big I'm not sure. We were happy at Angel Creek which had lovely views looking across the Ruby Mountains. We would camp here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful, old-fashioned "Campground" where wildlife is right at your doorscreen--bugs, birds, and deer. The access road is steep and winding; interior roads are narrow but well-paved. Most spaces are too small for our 32' Airstream, but arriving early in the afternoon we found a couple that worked. Dry camping and vault toilets, but the elevation is high enough to be comfortable without A/C, even in July. DO NOT take an RV andy further up the mountain, but DO go up the mountain to see Angel Lake--stunning alpine scenery in the middle of the Nevada Desert. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Gravel sites are mostly level. Very close to the highway, so truck noise. Pull-throughs are a little short for 45' including a tow. Most fit, though. Very nice owners. Laundry was nice with sufficient number of machines--not much folding room though. Restrooms clean and nice. Wi-Fi adequate. Would stay again if in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here for one night. Campground located on South side of I-80, all sites are gravel pull thru some up to 60'. Not the Ritz but adequate for short stay, or overnight and a better choice than other campgrounds in Ely. Some Interstate and distant train noise, but did not bother us at night. Rate reflects Good Sam discount and all taxes. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good campground for an overnight stop. Easy on/off the interstate but there is road noise and could be bothersome to those sensitive to that. We only hooked up to electric so I cannot comment on the other utilities. Verizon cell and MiFi worked well. We did not use the campground Wi-Fi or bath house. Owners were friendly and recommended a drive up to Angel Lake. It is not for the faint of heart because it is on a twisting, narrow road but has spectacular views. Also give out a coupon for local restaurant, Bella's, that had pretty decent food. We would stay here again if in the area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very adequate for an overnight or to explore the nearby mountains. Very friendly and professional staff. Long pull-throughs will accommodate the longest rigs. Easy on/off I-80. Gas stations nearby. Only downer was the dumpster was by the office, and our site was at the other end of the park. No big deal, though. Gravel interior roads, gravel sites with an attempt for grass by your site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Just a spot in the road that sometimes out of convenience you have to stay at. I think this campground is over priced at $30 it would make an ideal Passport America campground. But sometimes out of convenience since we were there for a car show you have to stay at places that are not your first paycheck. The only amenities would be convenience for whatever is going on in the town or possibly surrounding areas. It's your standard water sewer electric maybe Wi-Fi did not use it not sure if it had cable don't think so but then again we weren't there to watch TV we were there for a car show. If I needed a place to stay I would probably explore other options We camped here in a Motorhome.
We needed an overnight site late in the evening. They had clear signs up on how to register after hours. We had a nice site with everything we needed. It was a quiet and clean campground with easy on and off access to the highway. Their wifi is free and worked very well. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Loved the owners! It was like visiting gramma and grampa's house - they were so friendly and welcoming. Came right out to greet us and invited us in to register. The office, laundry room and bathrooms were all super clean. As others have said, the sites are level, gravel, full hook-ups and all pull-thru's but only just big enough for our 39' 5th wheel. Trees are tiny so don't provide shade yet, but also don't interfere with satellite reception. They had no trouble with us parking our truck and additional car in the space next door. (No extra charges.) The CG is right at the foot of the snow covered (in May!) Ruby Mountains and across the street from the municipal golf course in a nice residential neighborhood. Yes, Rt. 80 is on the other side but it didn't bother us. It's a great place to stop along the road for a night or two. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very basic park. Host was very helpful, leading us to our space and even giving instructions on the hookups. Wi-Fi tended to be slow. Cable connection was very snowy, but that could be our connection. Spaces were all pull-through and level. The park is right next to I-80, so quite a lot of road noise. Their business card states "new park", but would tend to question just how new. There were a few long term residents, but not unkempt. This park was the best we saw in the area. If in the area again, we would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The manager is very friendly and helpful. One place listed this RV park as new. It is not a new park, but still a good place to stop for the night. The sites are gravel and our site was level. Wi-Fi is strong, good cable TV, power and water connections are good, also. The weather was terrible (snow in mid May along with some rain) while we were there, therefore, a lot of puddles to dodge. But certainly nothing that anyone has control over. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
Stayed here overnight on our way north. Manager was very friendly and led us to our site. Sites not very wide and if we had had slides, they would have hit some small trees. They will probably prune them when the season starts, tho. Good overnight spot when passing thru the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice, well maintained park, There are a handful of full timers staying here, but their sites/units are very well kept up and quiet. Owners were very friendly and helpful at check in, making sure we had everything we needed. The manager even walked out to the sites (on a VERY windy and cold day), to help us get our camper backed in. Park was very quiet and felt safe. Had a place in the back of park to walk the pooch. Showers were absolutely immaculate, very well maintained with plenty of hot water, and nicely heated. They had a access code for the door, which made one feel safer when in the shower alone at night. Overall a nice, clean park for a pleasant, quiet stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a very clean and well kept campground. The person in the office was very nice and accommodating. We were having heat issues and he was kind enough to loan us a heater for the night. It was -5 degrees. The showers are very clean and well kept. We will stay again when traveling through there. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Cleanest washrooms and laundry facilities I've seen. Owners very friendly and welcoming. We stayed one night en-route to AZ. Will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Had a Wonderful stay! Staff very helpful! The bathrooms and laundry were the nicest of Any park we stayed at. The park was clean and well-maintained. We stayed in many parks throughout our journey, some of our membership parks were not as nice. Thank you For a pleasant stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here for one night on our way south and found the RV park to be very nice. Sites were gravel and level and electric good. They have only a few big rig sites, especially if you want to stay hooked up during your stay. The park is clean and the hosts are very friendly and accommodating. Can't say there is much to Wells except for fuel stops at Hwy 93 & I-80. The park is an easy off & on to I-80 and although close to the freeway the traffic noise was negligible. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A convenient overnight park, right off the freeway. There is some noise, but it was not bothersome. The interior roads and sites are gravel. All pull thru sites, long enough to not unhook our 30ft travel trailer and fairly level. Modern and clean restrooms and laundry. Eighteen Cable TV channels and their Wi-Fi worked good. Good Verizon cell signal. Friendly and helpful owners. We have been here before and will be back if passing through the area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very nice, everything clean and convenient. Very friendly owner. We just stayed one night, but it was entirely pleasant. Pull thru sites with nice level spaces, not too close together. Nice pet area. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A very nice park owned by very nice people. This is a good over night stop close to I 80 with minimal road noise. The laundry and shower rooms are in the same building as the office so they are constantly monitored for cleanliness. The washers and dryers are practically new and appear to work just fine. The sites are gravel and a bit tight but not a problem. We would surely stay here again when in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a basic RV park for an overnight stay or a few nights to explore the area. Good Wi-Fi, level sites on gravel, and very courteous and helpful owners. The only drawback on this campground is the noise from I-80 and occasionally train. If in the area, we would use this park again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Campground located close to off ramp. Easy in and out for our 5th wheel big rig. Campground built on a level site. Gravel roads and sites. Desert environment. Management helpful. You pick your own site, but they come with you to the site. Bathroom, laundry, and showers at main building clean. Eighteen cable channels with good reception. WiFi good. We would stay here again, but only for overnight. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent basic RV park. This is our second year in a row staying here. Park hosts are very helpful and friendly. A grocery store, hardware store and a Dollar Store are within walking distance. Wells Propane is also close too. It has easy access off of and on to I-80. Freeway noise is present, but not too bad. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate reflects GS discount. Nice friendly family owned park. Sites are level pull through with good spacing. Wi-Fi great at site. Stayed here for short stopover and would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
After a long day on the road we had no luck finding a decent place to stay for the night until we called the Angel Lake RV Park. A very nice couple greeted us & took care of our needs . We were very happy to find such a comfortable place to stay. We didn't use the cable tv but the WiFi was strong and the site was level. We wish we were staying more than one night & would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a tough area to find good RV parks and this one is pretty good. The sites are level and easy to access. The park is clean and tidy, with no junky long-tern trailers around. Every site has a tree and a small patch of grass (which I am sure is hard to maintain in this part of Nevada). It is just off of Interstate 80, but we did not find the traffic noise to be too bad. We'd stay here again as an overnight stop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice little campground. Very clean. Sites are gravel, but level with grass in between each site. Would stay here again. Right off freeway - not much noise. Wi-Fi was good. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We had to lay over in Wells 6 days due to camper breakdown. Nice, simple park with basic amenities and new bath/laundry facilities. Very nice, helpful owners. Seems to be primarily a pass-through park for big rigs but quiet. Not a lot to do in the area, but owners try to point out what is here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a one night stay for us and it worked, but there was a lot of highway noise. The managers/owners were very nice and did a good job of making nice bathrooms and laundry facility, neither we used. The sites were gravel. They were easy to get in and out of. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This park seems to get a lot of one night RV's, plus those in the area for recreation, as we were. It is convenient, but that means next to the freeway, so you get some noise...earplugs work! Sites are pretty close together. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the place is clean. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
As mentioned in previous posts, when we arrived the owners came out and greeted us and led us to our site. Nice touch. The interior roads and sites were on packed gravel and fairly leveled. All of the sites had FHU with 20/30/50 amp electrical service. The sites were long enough that we did not have to unhitch. The voltage was strong. Verizon air card and cell phone worked well here. There is WIFi available but we did not use it. The bathroom with 2 showers was very clean and appealing. There were 2 washers and dryers costing $2.00. There were a number of long term residents. There was some train and freeway noise at night but it was not too bad. We would come back here again if we were passing through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Friendly welcome from the staff, level gravel pull-through sites (most are pull-throuigh). Free easy-connect Wi-Fi (a little weak at our site but adequate). Only negative would be freeway noise, but this reflects the easy access from the freeway. We would gladly stay here again We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A safe place to stop, coach and tow car. Clean, spotless shower rooms, all gravel, basic cable, no amenities to speak of. Just a safe, quiet, clean place to rest with full hookups. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My wife and I visited Wells, Nv for the first time in our motorhome to play in a couples golf tourney and Chimney Creek Golf Course. I called and made reservation for 1 night. We arrived a little earlier than I told them, however our site was available. My coach is 40' in length and the pull thru site was great. The owner escorted us to the site and went thru all the hookups. Our pad was very level and did not require us to use the leveling jacks. Due to the Sunday play finishing in the afternoon, I asked if we could have a late check out. The owner told us there would be no problem whatsoever. Hopefully, next year we can stay longer to see the rubys and angel lake. I will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects Good Sam Discount. Friendly staff. Nice laundry facilities, although I didn't use them. Gravel site that was level with picnic table. Good overnight spot. Near freeway but didn't hear it until early morning. Train nearby but also was not an issue. Easy on and off I-80 and no need to unhook tow since space was long enough. Good area on the frontage road to walk the dog. We'd stay here again for an overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Easy access off I-80. All gravel sites with a tad of grass/growth outside door. 10 or so sites were occupied by long-term tenants, a few with skirts. Adequate for our needs: overnight and then move on. Power/water/sewer all fine. Free Wi-Fi was strong. No shade so no problem with satellite TV. About 100 yards off freeway but didn't bother us: fairly quiet here. We'd stop again if passing. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Not a bad place for a one night stay. Very convenient to I-80. Almost too close given the noise, but it stopped at night. The facilities are nice and the young lady at the counter was very friendly. And it was refreshing to see sewer drains that were actually down hill. If I had one complaint it would be the upkeep of the fulltime residence sites. There were several. One near us had a collection of rusted wheel rims that were too big for anything he might drive in an RV park. Must be a memento from an old tractor he once owned. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It's Humbolt "Ave", not "Street"... best to just use Exit 351 and go one block south. Gravel sites, needed leveling, a patch of grass, old picnic table. The utilities connection in middle, but the sewer connection is at rear and hard to reach. Wifi was slow, cable TV had 19-channels. Constant freeway noise. Showers were clean, but odd set up, very small drying area, and restrooms were visible inside from two doors to lobby and outside, ugh. This may be the best that Wells has to offer? We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a newer park in the desert. The sites are pull through and full hookups. What makes this a nice campground is the young lady at the office. She came out to greet us and was extremely helpful and nice. She explained things about the local area and gave us coupons and recommendations for attractions and a local restaurant. We were escorted us to our site. I wouldn't stay long term here but for an overnight stay it was just fine. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
If you looked at this RV park from the interstate you would think it was nothing special. However, for an overnighter this park was great. The older gentleman in the office could not have been nicer, and you could have eaten off the floor in the laundry and bathhouse. We camped here in a Motorhome.
After staying at this park several times over the last several years, it is definitely going downhill. Multiple sites with permanent residents and trash everywhere. Gravel sites are unlevel front to back, side to side not much better. Picnic tables are broken and unsafe to sit on. The good points are excellent Wi-Fi, clean showers, restrooms and laundry plus being led to your site. Will most likely not stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is the nicest campground we've stayed in on our cross country trip when traveling- not a destination. Park is very well run, show u to site. Exceptionally clean shower, bathrooms, & laundry room. The owner is on site most the time, very helpful & hospitable. Park right beside highway, so there's highway noise. Gravel sites, but nice. I looked @ all parks in town this is by far the nicest without question. Angel Lake a nice 12 mile ride up mountain from park, one of most beautiful places we've ever been. Bella's restaurant in town very good, don't let looks fool you. We camped here 3 nights, when we stopped for 1. Nice place to rest do laundry, go see lake, & eat some good home cooking @ Bella's! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a small park with long but narrow unlevel sites with picnic tables. There are a lot of full-time permanent sites that are a bit untidy. Only stayed overnight and it worked well for that. Fast food is close by as well as a golf course. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a friendly park with helpful management.It has shown improvement since the last time I was here. It is reasonable and makes for a good overnight or short stay park. I would stay here again We camped here in a Motorhome.
I was in this park in the spring and it had a large number of semi-permanent residents with stuff all over. This has changed. The park is friendly and the management very helpful. The sites are a little narrow but they have ample length. I was pleased with the improvements and this park makes a great place for a short stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The campground was hard to find since we didn't use the Interstate. This is not a new campground by all means. The pull throughs are not 70 feet as advertised. Without a tape measure I would guess that they are approx. 55 feet. Good views to the south and the Interstate to the North. Won't be staying here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Owner (a former cattle rancher) and daughter were friendly people. Trees have been planted for shade, but they aren't quite there yet. The bathrooms and showers were very clean. It was close to the highway, but noise wasn't an issue for us. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice RV park. The owner greeted us as we pulled in and was very helpful. Level gravel pull-through sites. Excellent water pressure, great W-Fi signal, and cable TV. Bathrooms and showers were immaculate. Laundry room was cleaned and well maintained. Beautiful view of the Humboldt Range. The only negative we had about this park was its proximity to the interstate - it makes for some loud traffic at night. All in all, however, we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great overnight stay. Friendly staff, clean bathrooms, hot showers, and tidy campgrounds. Great view of snow capped mountains. Had spent the previous night at a noisy freeway site with jake brakes and lots of traffic. (Husband's snoring was an added treat!) Would definitely recommend this site to travelers. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park has a large number of permanent residents with a lot of stuff on their sites. The sites are mostly dirt with gravel in spotty areas.It was very muddy when in rained. The staff was very helpful. I found the sites pretty narrow due to all the stuff from the next site. I feel the park would be much nicer if they forced the permanents to remove much of the stuff on their sites. It makes a good overnight and with more gravel on the sites would be even better. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very clean park. The restrooms were the cleanest we have seen in a long time. Very friendly owners. Golf course right across the street. An excellent overnight stop. It was a bit windy the day we were here. We camped here in a Motorhome.
While the folks who helped us at the RV campground were extremely nice, courteous and helpful, don't expect much more than a gravel site. Although the freeway was nearby, the noise did not bother us at night -- perhaps because it is situated at the bottom of the hill. We heard the railroad once, but it was pleasant. The laundry room was clean and the Internet worked great. This is a pleasant place to stay for one night only. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a basic park but all sites are pull through. What makes it a great park are the owners, who were here 8-8 during our 4 night stay. Great people and so accommodating. New park, so the trees are all small. Fair rate and although close to the interstate, not bad at all. Absolutely would stay here again. Planned 1-2 nights and stayed 4. Will stay here on our return trip. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great place for an overnight stay. This is near-desert country and the park is probably as attractive as can be expected. Outstanding restrooms, excellent Wi-Fi and friendly operators. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park in located on I-80, but there was no road noise. The sites are long, gravel pull throughs. Staff was mostly family and very friendly. We were shown the laundry room and restrooms, very new, nice and clean. We were given tickets for discounts at a casino, had a free shuttle to the casino. We would definitely stop here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A basic park, with gravel sites, just off the freeway so you have traffic noise. Whistles from the train that runs nearby, baby trees so no shade, newer washers/dryers, book exchange, and the cable TV was good. No other amenities. Owners were very friendly. We used it as an overnighter and would use again as parks are scarce in this area. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The owners/hosts are SO friendly and accommodating. The mountain view is beautiful. It's close to a grocery store and a large park. Nearby Angel Lake is well worth the drive. Also, the drive out to the Metropolis ghost town was beautiful. The negatives are a little road noise and no pool, but we would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The location is convenient right off I-80; there is some road noise. Sites are easy to get into, spacious, fairly level, on a gravel surface. Has a new laundry room: 3 washers and 3 dryers. New restroom and showers with one toilet and shower stall enlarged and equipped for handicapped. Their internet works excellent; our aircard was slow. Has 17 cable TV channels. Nothing for kids here, although I'm sure they're welcome. Has some long-term residents. Within walking distance to a grocery store. Owner is friendly and helpful. This was an easy, convenient overnight stop. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We have stayed here before and knew it would be clean: all sites are pull throughs, has good WiFi, and the people are friendly. It is right off the interstate and easy to get in and out, but there is a little, very little, interstate noise. Sites and roads are gravel but level. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Agree with much as mentioned before. Sites are close but decent in length. The owners are very nice folks. We used the small laundry. Has clean and modern machines with extra size stainless steel tubs. $1.50 wash $1.00 dry. Park has FHU's, there are some perms, but no rag units. There is road noise, but not bad. Small nice park for an overnight. Has good hook ups. There is a shuttle to local small casino. Not bad for the price. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in our 40' motorhome with quad slides. We were in site 20 with 50 amp, TV, full hookup, good Verizon phone signal, table and good Wi-Fi. Sites are a little close, side by side. Owner is friendly and helpful with good humor. Even though the freeway isn't far away it wasn't that noisy. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Even though the staff was very nice and helpful and the restrooms and showers were extremely clean...the place is a pit hole. It was quite noisy, too. We would not recommend this place. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Most of the comments are right on. This is a great overnight park. It's right on the highway but since we didn't go outside I don't know if there was noise. I didn't hear any. Owner was very friendly and helpful. She walked us out to the site to see if we liked it. The sited are about 24' wide, and at first glance seemed a bit short. She explained they were designed to accommodate any length rig. The road is very wide and you are expected to adjust your rig to fit where you need it (for utilities). While you appear to hanging out in the road (because the grass divider is short) you aren't. A little disconcerting but it worked. The sites and roads are gravel. The laundry and showers were clean. The Wi-Fi worked. If this park were paved and had more grass I would rate it higher. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice check in, what a great gentleman! Spaces were clean and had easy access. A must see is Angel Lake, what a beauty! A lot of full timers, a sad sign of the times. We plan to come back again next year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Extremely clean and new bathrooms and showers. Friendly staff. Simple campground that is what it is: a good stop on the way to somewhere else. My wife was pleased with the cleanliness and she is very hard to please! Park has some long term residents but all are newer rigs on uncluttered sites, not creepy like some places. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The pros: Nicely appointed and spotlessly clean restrooms and showers; owners extremely nice and helpful; Wi-Fi outstanding. The cons: Basically, a gravel parking lot with a lot of permanent residents [not that I have anything against a park renting to long-term residents--I don't! But it does affect the overall appearance and ambiance of a park]. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice owners, has gravel sites and pads and not a lot of room between sites. The 50 amp was marginal, good water pressure and the neighbor said Wi-Fi was good. Could use a little maintenance on the interior roads. The owner said he could park any size rig when I called him ahead of time. True, if you don't mind hanging out into the street! Close to the freeway, but A/C drowned out the noise. Also made for easy on/off freeway. We would consider staying on an overnight basis again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great little campground right off the highway. Easy in and out. No trees or shade. Long pull-through sites for big rigs. No need to unhook. Owners are very helpful and friendly. Would definitely recommend for an overnight stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Ok park for overnight or exploring the Ruby Mts. Too close to the I-80 if you want to sleep in or sit outside. Wifi worked and so did my Aircard at about the same speed. Good cell and Sat. reception (Verizon). A shuttle will pick you up if you want to go to the casino. We might stay here again if we need to get an early start in the morning. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well kept park. It is right by I-80 so some traffic noise. Staff was friendly and escorted us to our spot. We ask for a pull-thru so we didn't have to unhook tow. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We accidentally posted this review to "Angel Lake", the site above this one on RV Park Reviews. This is the correct review for this park: Absolutely some of the friendliest folks we have ever met. When we pulled up in front of the office, the daughter of the owner, the owner, and his wife, all came out to greet us. The park is fairly new and has level sites with all hookups. It is nothing fancy, but it has the cleanest restrooms we have ever seen and the best free Wi-Fi we have encountered. Not much to do in Wells, but this is a superb overnight stop. We would stay here again in a heartbeat. We camped here in a Motorhome.

Great RV park for a stop over. It is located right off the highway and has all the amenities including cable and wifi. Owners were very helpful and nice. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The previous review of this park was so good we had to go and see it. So we did and got a bit of a shock - this campground is essentially on top of the mountain and it is accessed by a steep, relatively narrow, 2 lane, well paved road up the side of the mountain with rock on one side and nothing on the other. Judging by the large number of local people, that we enjoyed Sunday afternoon there, they were not concerned by the road. BUT, if I had met another motor home on the road we might still be there deciding who had the nerve to back up. Apart from the road, the campground experience was great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very new trailer park. Owners very friendly. All sites were pull through. Rest rooms and showers were the cleanest I have ever seen. It was very windy when we camp there, and the pilot went out several times. You are right next to I-80 and could hear the trucks and train through out the night. I left the AC fan on all night to baffle the noise. Good place to stay for 1-2 nights We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Arrived after dark and man at desk guided me to space with a flashlight. He also offered to assist me in hooking up. Absolutely cleanest and most modern rest room facilities I've ever encountered. WiFi free and worked well. Several cable TV channels. Would rate this park a 10 were the streets paved and pads of asphalt or concrete. Desert setting with lots of gravel. New park so trees don't offer any shade at this time. Great place to stop overnight. We camped here in a Motorhome.
New park, it is one year old. Easy off/on to I-80. The sites are very level. The sites are close and are gravel. The bathrooms should be used as a model for other parks, they are very clean. The owner/hosts are very nice and friendly. The park is next to the freeway, so road noise can be an issue. We camped here in a Motorhome.

We would have rated this park higher if the sites were longer. We could barely park our truck in our space. None of the spaces are long enough for large motorhomes with towed vehicles. There was quite a lot of noise from the adjacent I-80 freeway. The free WiFi worked well but the Cable TV offered did not include local NBC, CBS or ABC channels. The restrooms, showers and laundry were the cleanest I've ever seen. The owners were especially friendly and helpful. We believe the best thing the park owners could do for their new business is to reconfigure their property to contain fewer, but larger, sites. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Absolutely beautiful US Forest Service Campground, just outside of Wells NV. The park is in a lovely setting, with a jagged cliff rising above the campground with a waterfall running down into a small, deep lake with lots of trout. There are no amenities here, no hookups etc, but the sites are large with a fair amount of privacy between them. All the sites have a paved concrete slab for the picnic table and fire rings. The parking pads are asphalt as are the roads. This is a beautiful spot to park and get off the interstate (about 12 miles off I 80) and enjoy some peace and quiet. Nice hiking trails too. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not a destination park for sure. It is an older park located right on the road and the spaces are very cramped. It also seemed to be a serve yourself and pick your spot and then pay kind of place. Luckily we found a spot where we could put out our 3 slides. We saw at least 5 rigs come in and leave. There are trains all day and night. We probably would opt to travel a few more hours next time to Twin Falls. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We tried to stay here. No one in office. Sign said call a number after you find a site. No other RVs there. This is a empty gravel lot with a small office. We tried to electricity, but several sites had no power at all. Then hooked to a couple of sites an it had Reverse Polarity. Of course we did not stay there. It doesn't look like anyone ever stays there. Would never go back unless they did a major redo of their electrical system. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a gravel lot between a state highway and a railroad. It is a poor excuse for an RV park. Thank goodness we are only here for one night! Lady in the office was very friendly. Would not stay here again. Rate reflects Sunrise Resort membership. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is an overnighter park, not one you would willingly spend time in. At 5660 ft. elevation it is quite high and Wells is not a scenic stopover. The lady manager was quite nice and stayed around to greet us at our late arrival of 8:30pm. There is a good Verizon signal for cell-phone and Mi-Fi and many sites are open for satellite reception as well. Yes, there are a few trains going by and a particular one at 6:00 am that seemed to travel through the park blowing his whistle at each road crossing. While not a beautiful park it served very well for us to get off the road for the night. The $13 rate is for the RPI $10 plus a $3 "resort" fee. Go figure! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an OK park for one night only if one has a Passport America card for the $13.00 rate. The sites are all gravel and are close together. There are no amenities except that they do have full hookups. We stayed there one night on our way. On our way back we stayed at Mountain Shadows RV Park which was much nicer and also took Passport America although the rate was $5.00 more. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It is a nice place but I was put in a spot with a pitbull right across from me. The Pitbull had already killed a dog per the owner in the campground. This was very upsetting. I was not informed of this animal. I have a dog with me. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The managers are a sweet friendly couple, very helpful, will go out of their way to help you. He walks over to help you find your spot and make sure you drive in straight. Sites are a bit tight, but not bad, I could extend my slide out. I would recommend this place to unwind from the high tech world. Can walk about 2 blocks to nearby restaurants. No over-the-air television, but you can go to their office lobby sitting room and watch their TV in air conditioned room. Would recommend over-night stay and a few days for unwinding. I liked hearing the trains at night. We used our "Coast to Coast" membership. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I'm rating this park a 2 simply because the management couple were two of the sweetest people. The only asset to the park were the bathrooms. They were clean and updated. It was a Coast to Coast Classic park, I actually called Coast to Coast to see if we had made a mistake in pulling into the wrong park, unfortunately we had not. The description of the park in the CC directory was completely deceptive. Situated at the towns main intersection where I-80 met HWY 93. There was no WiFi, no modem, no activities building, very few sites although it did have W.E.& Sewer. Sirens blew all night as did the train whistle, kids congregate on the corner etc, etc, etc. The town is still trying to recover from an earthquake several years ago, so it was quite run down with not much to interest the visitors. Many of the businesses advertised were not even operating. There was a McDonalds in the Loves Truck Stop. Fine for an overnight stop to dump the tanks and rest, but not for an elongated stay. We actually shortened our stay from 4 nights to 3. I would not recommend more than a one night stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not much more than a gravel lot with hook-ups. Spaces are pull through but tight and would be extremely difficult to maneuver if it filled up. All that being said the couple that manage the place were wonderful, helped us get in our space after a long, tiring day. As an overnight stop this was a perfect, no-thrills place to be. The manager did tell us that they expect to be very busy with longer term residents in the future as construction workers for a pipeline will be coming into the area soon. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Small campground. No amenities. Strictly a spot to stay overnight. For this, it is fine. Sites were level and in good care. Restrooms were clean. Couple who are caretakers were very accommodating. We stayed here as Coast to Coast members, and would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a membership campground and the $11 we paid is the RPI price including tax. This is a no-frills park, but a great place for a night or two. We've stayed here before, so knew what to expect. There is now a couple living on-site as managers and they are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. The park is basically a gravel parking lot with full hook-ups (30 amp only) and a couple of shade trees. Big rigs would have no problem as there's plenty of room to pull forward in the space to clear the utility poles. We've stayed here several times before and have never found the park full. This time there were only 2 other RVs there. There are restrooms and showers, but no laundry facilities; however, there is a laundry a couple blocks from the park. My Verizon air card worked flawlessly there, but we were told the park was planning to put in wi-fi next year. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We chose this RV park because it had 50 amp service (didn't have our 50 to 30 converter with us), only 30 amp in all other parks in Wells or Jackpot. The lady in the office was very friendly and answered all my questions. The sites were close but wide enough for our slides. No grass (this is desert) but a few shade trees. Large area to walk your dog(s). The restrooms were very clean and had several stalls and showers, also warm. Downside were the trains that ran though nearby during the night, at least 4 (the reason for a rating of 8). We really didn't notice because we were so tired. Other than that the park was quiet. I have to comment on the Chinese restaurant next door. Some of the best food we have ever had, the owner/chef makes everything from scratch, including the cocktail sauce which was delicious. We would stay at this park again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We just needed an overnight stop and this was the first park we came to after getting off the interstate. Our first impression of the park was good. There was a comfy ambiance to it and the people in the office were friendly. Checking in was easy. The sites were narrow, but since we have a small travel trailer this wasn't a problem for us. The restrooms were somewhat old, but overall were in good condition and very clean. The park is in close proximity to a train track and about six or seven trains went by during our time there - they can be quite loud. The park has many permanent residents and quite a few of them are living in poorly kept up rigs with lots of stuff stored around their sites. A neighbor's yappy dog, kept tied up outside, kept us awake at night. The park Wi-Fi was not working well and we could only get an internet connection by taking our laptop down to the office. This was an OK park for one night but we would probably check out other places if we ever need to stay in Wells again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We had a nice experience here. Owners were very friendly. Electric was just upgraded. WiFi worked well. Smaller sites, but was just fine in our 33" TT without having to unhook. There were quite a few permanent residents, most seemed to work in the Elko gold mine. Not your resort-style place, but I was only overnighting here. I would do it again without hesitation. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Stayed 2 nights and will not be back. We were here 2 years ago and there appears to be quite a change. About 2/3 of the spots are full time residents with some very rundown trailers, etc. One guy lives in a small van. Tight spots. Nice people and to be honest, we had no trouble with any of the residents, but this is not what we RV for. Noisy at 6:15 in the morning as some were going to work. Back across the fwy for us next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For Wells, this is one of the best parks in the area. Sites are close and there is a tight turn as you come around the bath/laundry house. Some trees are close to your rig. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Good on and off of I-80. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an older park in need of some TLC. It would be a great stop over for one or two nights but we will not be staying here again as the sites were to narrow for us to have all our slides out. The park roads and sites are gravel. Most sites have a tree but this is high desert and the trees are short which caused the problems with our slide. If you are in a smaller rig this is a great place to overnight, larger rigs need to pass this one by. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Pretty tight when this place gets full. This is a nice park for in the desert. I feel the owner is trying to make it a nice park but I also think its about five dollars too high in price. We would probably stay here again if hot, but if weather is cool then probably will boondock somewhere. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice shaded sites in a desert area. Long pull thrus where you can leave your tow vehicle attached if leaving the next day. Big clean bathrooms and showers. Giving it a 9 due to the fact that the site we pulled into at first had no electricity they did move us to another site. Could also have used a playground area for children. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We pulled in mid afternoon, after a long dusty drive. The staff were really friendly, check in was easy, Good Sam discount applied. Sites were adequate for overnight, some shade from trees. Freeway and train noise not overwhelming. Did not use bathrooms, but laundry was clean and reasonably priced. Would stop here again if passing through Wells. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice, clean park for an overnight. The pull-throughs were long enough for us to not have to unhook our car. No specified dog area, but as long as you picked up after your pet, you were free to walk anywhere. We would stay here again when going through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here before and enjoyed the park. It has many more permanents than before so it is a bit trashy where they are parked. Lots of train noise. The interior roads have large puddles, but will hopefully be repaired before the summer season. We would stay again as it is the nicest park in Wells. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park with easy freeway access. It has a railroad track right behind it and if you are a light sleeper you will be awakened. When we stayed it froze at night and they did not wrap the water stand pipe. They asked us to disconnect our hose . Go out at 6.30am to hook water back up to find their water pipe frozen. No shower and cold does not make for a happy camper. Will probably go down the road a little farther next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed there on our way back on a trip. We had stayed at another Passport America park earlier on our way up. This was a nicer park and the Passport America Rate was $18.50 for a pull-through site, $5.00 more than the other park. The amenities were worth it as there was cable & Wi-Fi. The site was more spacious with gravel and grass in between sites with a picnic table. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Many worker trailers here, and some have trashy looking sites. Two of them have dog kennels in the back. Barking is common at all hours of the day and night. We won't be back. Too bad, as this used to be a very pleasant park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park has great restroom/shower rooms: very roomy, private and clean. Look recently upgraded. Same with the laundry room. Nice long, graveled sites, with grass between sites, a picnic table and trees. Owner/manager is on site, friendly and helpful. Great location: just off I-80. Grocery store and post office is on the same street. Nice little town. Would have given rating of 10, but no swim pool! Definitely would stay at this park again. Used Good Sam Discount. Only complaint: Passport America directory says the discount is not good in July. On arrival, informed the discount not good in July, or August. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Our spot was a flat, level, gravel pull through site. Not necessary to level our 30 foot trailer. The free Wi-Fi was very slow. Each spot has grass, a picnic table and trees. Bathroom and showers were very clean. Right next to rail road tracks. Three times at night, a train woke us up. Park is nothing special, but it is more than adequate for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Fine for an overnight. Level gravel sites with good WiFi and cable TV. Chinese restaurant next door. Very friendly staff. We stayed here twice. Train tracks are nearby but didn't bother us. Very clean restrooms and showers. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV Park does not provide many amenities but is perfectly adequate for a stop-over. Our pull-through lot was level with very good, free WiFi and large selection of cable TV channels. All lots are gravel. There is a field behind the park where I could exercise my Labrador Retrievers off-leash. We could hear the whistle of the occasional freight train passing nearby. However, freeway noise was almost not audible. Good freeway access. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This place is very close to the railroad tracks and we heard the very loud trains and their whistles many times during the night. There were a few full-time RVs here, but not too bad. The Wi-Fi worked well after we had the attendant reboot the server. The spaces are very tight and we could not have put out our awning if we wanted to. Luckily it wasn't too hot. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We came in under Pass Port and the rate we paid reflects that program. The park is small but laid out so large rigs can maneuver without much problem. Our site was level and the Wi-Fi was strong from where we parked. The cable TV was clear with plenty of channels. The roads and sites are gravel but we did not experience any dust issues. The office staff was friendly helpful. We would return to this park should we be in the area again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a small campground and well cared for. They had just put down fresh gravel and the grass between each site had no weeds. When our slide hit some of the branches in the pine tree, I asked if we could trim it and they said 'yes'. I decided to 'check out' the restrooms and I was awestruck they were so nice! They were clean, all tile and huge for such a small campground-the very nicest we have seen in our full time travels of six years! We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Adequate for our needs. We parked in a pull thru with our pickup and 24 ft trailor w/slideout. Spent one night and would stay again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 3 / 10 ]
This is fine for one night if you cannot find anything else. The sites were very crowded. There were dogs barking and a black lab ran loose the whole time we were there. I would not stay there again. We did not have room for our slideout. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a good stop over RV Park. The sites are narrow and you need to watch the tree limbs. The Passport America rate was not a full 50% off the going nightly rate, but was reasonable. The Cable TV signal was good. The town of Wells has seen it's best days many years ago. The 3 truck stops, 1 Casino and 2 Nevada Houses of the night are about all that's left. The main street of the town was in ruin. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
The rate is a Good Neighbor rate (thru coast to coast). Although this is a nice clean park with wonderful staff it is a little tight for big rigs. We have a 40' Motorhome with four slides and because of the trees we could not bring out one of our slides. They could trim the trees up higher and it might help. On the electric pedestals the 30 amp was towards the back but if you want 50 amp it was way to the front. We were lucky we had an extension cord. Most were just hooking to the 30 amp instead of messing with it. Not much in Wells but we did take a drive up to Angel Lake which was nice. The park filled up almost every night with over-nighters so I would suggest reservations. Big Rigs be careful and bring an extension cord. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Friendly office staff. We stayed for one night just passing through. Sites are a bit tight. Be careful of overhanging tree limbs. We seemed to be the only people in some time to be willing to pick up our dog's business. I doubt we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Wells is pretty much dying, but this is a nice little spot. The owners were quite friendly and helpful. There's a grocery within walking distance and you can gas up, etc. Everything worked fine. Great spot to stop, but I'd call ahead as there are a lot of people who use it on their way across N Nevada and it does seem to fill up. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice small campground. Only downside is the trains very close to CG. Only had two, one during daylight, one at night, but loud. Reservations suggested. I saw several rigs turned away, on a Monday night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a small park but it has long sites available if you need them. The office staff is cordial, helpful and very friendly. This is a stopover place for most people, but it is a nice, clean place with wifi. We would stop here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We only give this location a rating of 4 because of the friendly service and clean location. Traveling from Lake Tahoe to Jackson Hole, this looked to be the best middle point to stop. However, starting at 12:30 in the morning and every hour thereafter trains came past the park with loud and continuous air horns sounding. Do not stop here without earplugs if you plan on any sleep. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great little RV park. Nice owners, quiet, clean, well-maintained and excellent WiFi service which had been installed shortly before our visit. Will definitely stay here again when we next head across Nevada. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
A nice enough little place, but a little too close to the railroad tracks for our taste. The people were great, very helpful and accommodating. But the sites are pretty close together, and the railroad tracks are within 100 feet of the end of the facility. We just couldn't get used to the noise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice campground among aspen trees and a creek; Well-spaced sites with privacy. Dry camping only, with vault toilets. No dump station. Each campsite has a picnic table, fire ring, and barbeque stand. A variety of sites among 3 loops. Some back-in, some pull through; several will accommodate bigger rigs. We had no trouble in our 30-ft travel trailer. Interior roads and sites are paved. Generators are OK 6am-10pm. Nice 4-mile round-trip hike up Thomas Canyon trail starts in the campground near site #31. Two campground hosts are helpful. No cell signal. Closed during the winter. Normal rate for single site is $17, half price for Golden Age and Senior Access Pass. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is an older RV park about 8 miles west of Wells, NV with easy access on and off the freeway. Despite a lack of some standard RV park amenities (no Wi-Fi, no laundry, no cable), what sets it apart is abundant, lush, green grass, a cool running creek, super friendly managers, and a laid back atmosphere. This is a great place to get off the road and relax for a few days. The managers had a community campfire going both days we stayed here. We enjoyed sitting around the fire chatting with them. During our stay the voltage was good, but water pressure was a tad on the weak side at only 40 PSI and sometime briefly less. An AT&T wireless signal was weak and barely usable here, but Verizon was stronger and their data was LTE. This park is a real gem and we'll most definitely stay here again when passing through. Price paid reflects a Passport America rate, good for two nights. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our rate was for Passport America 50 amp. We really enjoyed this little campground. It is lush and green. Take a little walk down by the stream, it's very nice. The only drawback is the freeway noise. We would come back again for short stays. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We drove 400 miles from CA. Passed many RV parks on the Interstate that all looked like dumps. In desperation found this one in the Escapees discount book. Rate noted reflects Escapees discount. Did not expect much but found this jewel in the middle of the desert in the middle of nowhere. Huge shade trees, green grass, super clean rest rooms and showers/laundry. Mountain stream running at back of campground. Good Verizon, some antenna TV. Owners were delightful. Some seasonal but appears there are always a few sites open.We were extremely pleased. Not only would we stay here again, we would plan to. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An oasis in the middle of desert. Small park with lots of green grass. Host very accommodating. Quiet, with running stream through park. Not many amenities, but an excellent place to stop and rest. Would definitely stay here again. Rate was Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
'Twas a surprise to find a place so lush and green in the middle of the desert. Small, friendly, beautiful place with grass sites that is basically an old man's back yard. You feel like a friend he hasn't met yet. Lots of monthlies; seems to be a place where older folks just come and stay a while. I-80 highway noise is somewhat problematic, unfortunately. We camped here in a Motorhome.
PA rate for non-sewer site. Appeared to be lots of transient workers, but they were no problem. The power was very poor, couldn't use the microwave. Very nice to have shade and green grass in the desert. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
What a jewel!! This is a little Mom and Pop operation with lots of shade and grassy sites with a mountain stream at the west side of the campground. The owners are very friendly and supplied a campfire at night with lots of stories and information about the area. The campground is small and is close to I-80. It will not appeal to everyone but we loved it and spent a very pleasant afternoon relaxing in the shade and evening at the campfire. The quoted rate is the Passport America rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate shown is a Passport America rate (50%). This campground served its purpose: a clean, safe, one-night stopover while traveling through Nevada. As previous posters have stated, this is a mom and pop park that has 21 sites (some with sewer)arranged on what appears to be their converted ranch. The setting is very nice. All grass with lots of big willow trees. Unfortunately, the willows were weeping when we were there and we were covered in pitch the next morning. It washes off and only happens in the fall so no harm done. Hosts were very friendly. Some freeway noise but not too bad. I'd stop here again but only for the PA rate. If you need services and amenities, Elko is a better bet. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here last night for just one night and had a very nice time. The park is all grass, well maintained, and lots of shade trees. This is really a "mom and pop" park, small but very friendly. Nightly campfire by the owners with campers and neighbors sitting around talking. Really a nice experience and fun. Dog friendly, just do your pickup duty. Nice little pond and stream running through the park. The place is a bit small but cozy. Make sure you watch the exit numbers on I-80 for #343 since it's several miles outside of town. The town of Wells is a bit run down and not too much doing, but we were there on a holiday so lots were probably closed. They accept the Passport America discount so it was 1/2 price, a real bargain. For sure I'd stay there again next time I'm in the area. We drove by the other park in town, Crossroads, and were sure glad we stayed where we did instead. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The host was friendly and the restrooms and showers were clean. But if Wi-Fi and cable are important don't stay here. But if you like green grass and shady trees it's for you. It's fine for overnight although there is highway noise. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Very friendly helpful staff. Old fashion hospitality. Weather permitting nightly campfire. Restrooms very clean. Small laundry room w/ outdoor clothesline. Lots of trees and green grass. Oasis in Nevada. We camped here in a Motorhome.
