After driving South on the 95 through the desert this campground was an oasis. Completely gravel, with lots of sites we were just happy to have hook ups to run the air conditioner out here in this hot desert. Very nice staff escorted us to our site. The pool looked refreshing. But as I did laundry in the large laundry room I noticed several trucks pull up and local children poured out to use the pool. I didn't get the impression they were staying in the campground. Shuttle service to the casino is available and we took advantage of it. After arriving at the Casino, we walked downtown a block to eat. Overall, this campground is great for one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Called 2 days ago for reservation. Said plenty of sights, don't need a confirmation. Couldn't find our reservation. No Passport America on Sunday night and would not honor Good Sam rate they quoted me. Just a place to sleep. Nothing special. Pool was nice. Would not stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Rate is with GS discount. Overall, nice park. Staff seemed confused, long time to do little things but very friendly. Did not use pool but looked nice and clean. WiFi good but disconnects and slow at times. Sites barely adequate for 30' MH and Jeep. All connections good but cable TV local stations froze. We would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not a destination park although they try very hard to justify the expensive rate. This park has a few long term residents which were not a problem at all. The sites were fairly level, utilities in working order. We did not try the cable or the wireless so we cannot comment on that. It is a good spot for an overnight stay. Staff was friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Stayed here overnight on our way to Boise. There was nothing really wrong with the park but we just didn't like it. Access off the freeway was easy, the registration area was large, and the staff was friendly. There were some nice amenities like a small general store, ATM machine, hot dog and Polish sausage cart, and TV lounge. Nice playground and pool. The sites are somewhat level but taper off front and back. No concrete pad, grass, or landscaping. They advertise 70 ft pull thru but they are more like 45 ft and the tow just hangs off the marked site. Most all of the trees are dead. The extended stay area was not well-kept and there were a lot of overgrown weeds. Restrooms were nice. WiFi was very good. Would look to stay somewhere else next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is convenient for an overnight stop. The sites are very narrow for longer vehicles because there are railroad ties lining both sides of the sites. It is very important to know where your steps will be as you level the RV. The escort to the site was only there to let you know where you were going. I think it would be of greater assistance to advise of the narrow site. The WiFi did not work for us. The cable was adequate, the sewer, water and cable were awkward for our RV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Park is gravel with the sites marked by landscape posts. All the service's worked fine. It is a clean park with a mix of long term and short term. The sites are easy to get into, some are short for a big rig. It is out of town so very quit. The office has a store for food, RV supplies and beverages. The staff is very friendly. We would stay again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Park is showing it's age. At the Hi-Deserts exit of I-80 a new RV/Motel park was under construction. Park brochure shows 73 TV channels but most were grainy and a few unwatchable. I'll never understand why RV parks refuse to accept AMEX like Hi-Desert does. WiFi was strong but modest. I measured 3.4 Mbps down with a ping of 80 at about 3 PM in the afternoon when you would think the traffic would be fairly low. I think I'll try out the new park when I come back to Winnemucca. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Super clean restroom with 6 showers and 6 toilets. Great Wi-Fi. Level gravel sites with small gravel area and picnic table. Many long term residents that keep their sites well maintained. Residents do leave around 5am, so if you want to sleep in - you may find it annoying. Friendly staff that lead you to your site to make sure you get parked without any issues. Very small dog area, but there are open fields nearby that you can take larger dogs to. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nice park at the edge of town. Easy on and off the interstate. The spaces are very narrow, and since we didn't unhook, we couldn't put down our front steps because of the logs lining the space. Used the rear steps, so we were okay. We stayed an extra day due to the wind. We would stay here again. The staff was very friendly and the store is quite well stocked with RV supplies. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Located on the outskirts of Winnemucca and close to 1-80. Sites are gravel and can get muddy. Level and long enough for our RV and car, but very narrow. We had Full-Hook-ups but Wi-Fi was weak and slow. Our site #135 was located near the front of the park, so it was easy in and out. We were only here overnight so we were OK. If you need to go shopping, there is a Super Walmart in town and of course many Casinos and restaurants. We've been in Winnemucca before and this is probably the best C.G. in town. If traveling across Nevada, we would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park for an overnight stop. They have pull-thru sites near the entrance for those who are just passing through making departure simple. Hookups are convenient and properly located. Sites are paved and level. Good park for a quick stopover. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Easy to get to from the Expressway. We were escorted to the site which was a little narrow, but long enough that we were able to stay hitched up to our 35ft 5th wheel. There were 72 cable TV channels, but the Wi-Fi wasn't that great. Restrooms were very clean. My biggest problem with this park was the dog walking area which like the site was gravel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We didn't care much for this place at all. It felt dirty and trashy. We were put at the far end of the park near permanent renters and the freeway. The hook-ups were marginal at best. Was it ok for one night? Sure. But expensive for a gravel pad! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is our second stay at this park. Hosts are very friendly, will escort you to your site, and give you a ride back up to the office to check in. Park seems to be about 80 percent full-time; 20 percent overnighters. That said, it is well-managed, there is little noise, and the park is kept clean. The June reviews noted below are very much on the mark. We will stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I have had a change of heart since staying here the last time. Sure, it's still dusty here and we were even in a small dust storm during our stay, but the staff are so nice and helpful and they really make you feel at home. Everything worked fine and we will always use Hi Desert for a stop on our way through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night on our road trip. The staff were friendly and helpful. An attendant directed us to our pull through site. Interior roads and sites are gravel. Sites include a picnic table although we didn't use it because it was very windy. We noted that high winds must be a recurring feature here since none of the long-term tenants had awnings out. Long-term tenants are present but as others have noted, they are clustered together away from the entrance and most amenities. The store was well stocked and the RV parts section was one of the most complete I have seen. Our site featured 50/30/20 amp service, water and sewer. The cable TV had 72 channels. Our site was near the entrance and store and we did not note the noise that others had. All in all, it was a reasonably quiet and uneventful stay. We give it a 7 out of 10 only because the "visual appeal" was lacking. We would stay here again if looking for a quick overnighter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Have always bypassed Winnemucca stopovers due to what we heard about parks in the area. Took a chance on this one and was very pleasantly surprised. There were quite a few long-term spots but they are mainly on the far end of the park away from the pool and the office. Had a pull-through site and never even unhooked the toad. Great overnight stopover and we will definitely stay here again when on I-80. We camped here in a Motorhome.
My last night on the road and I got burned at the last place I stayed. If you want water and electric only you are out of luck. You're forced into paying for a full hook-up site as that is all they have. I was right across from the office and the WiFi was agonizingly slow or non-responsive altogether. This was the nosiest park I stayed at in the two months on the road. Constant in and out traffic from the permanent residents in their desert beaten automobiles in need of a new muffler. I didn't use their restrooms since I didn't feel like going for a hike late at night or the wee morning hours. I couldn't even see the building from my spot. Based on reviews of the other two parks in Winnemuccua, in the future I'll plan my over night stay in some other town from now on. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Courteous, friendly staff at registration. There are obvious full timers in the park, but overall the park appeared to be well kept and clean. It was a quiet night. Restrooms, including showers were very clean and heated. Would stop over again for sure. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Our second time at this park. You don't have a lot of options in Winnemucca, and this is certainly an acceptable place to stay. As has been commented on by other reviewers, there are a lot of permanent residents living in older, rather run-down trailers, but in general the park is well managed and maintained. It looked like management was making improvements to some of the facilities. The bathrooms and showers are older but clean and serviceable. The office staff is friendly and helpful. We'd stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Don't believe the Trailer Life Directory for this campground. Definitely overrated. We were here for 4 nights and the bathrooms and showers were not cleaned except one morning, the last one. The dog "run" is pathetic. It is a small patch of dirt and many users obviously don't pick up after pets. They do have a dog wash area but it is in one of the dogs runs and nothing but sand and so once you wash your dog it is a sandy mess before you can get out of the area! Many sites appear to be occupied with permanent folks with junky old RVs that should have been at the dump, instead of parked in a highly rated RV park! We felt the need to make sure our truck and storage lockers were locked at all times. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This park is differently making improvements every time we visit from all new painted exteriors to new welcoming and clean entrance. First of all you are in the middle of the desert with severe winters and hot summers so some things are going to be used to adhere to the climates (rock or gravel in lieu of grass,asphalt in lieu of cement). A lot of the permanents have been cleaned up for visual. You need this type of renters for off season and the amount of work in the area (gold mining etc.) brings permanents in for monthly or weekly rent, you just can't let it look like the depression which i don't think it does. Laundry area very nice. Store, RV parts in store very nice. Pool area very clean (also Handicapped access). We enjoyed our visit and will continue to come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Don't believe the Trailer Life Directory for this campground. Waaaay overrated. The good stuff is that there was a friendly welcome at check in and was led to the site. Bathrooms OK. The bad stuff: The dog "run" is pathetic. It is a small patch of dirt and many users obviously don't pick up after pets. Numerous cats wandering through the campground going up RV stairs and running under RV and truck. Many sites appear to be occupied with permanent folks whose sites resembled the depression era of the 1930s. Been RVing over 8 years and this is the first time I felt the need to lock my storage access doors. Winnemucca is in the middle of nowhere and these are the only real choices. I'd stay there again for one night if it was my only option but I would try hard to plan around it all together. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
OK for an overnighter, but can't see staying there. Lots of folks do and the permanents are pretty raunchy. Downright trailer trash mobile homes in the back of the park. Staff was friendly and no problems with any amenities. Sites were just dust and dirt and not real attractive, but hey, it is the desert. It certainly does not deserve the 9 rating from a certain guide book. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is older, but the management seems to be making improvements and keeping things up as best they can. In spite of the fact that there are some pretty run down rigs with permanent residents, everyone was friendly, and it was perfectly quiet at night, and we certainly felt safe here. Many of the residents are working in the nearby mines. They work long shifts and just want to come home and have dinner, watch some TV, and sack out. The restrooms are coded and were a little rundown but clean and servicable. There is a swimming pool that looked well maintained, but we didn't use it. The office includes a small store, and you can also buy propane here. Access from the freeway is very easy, and the Wi-Fi worked well. The price seemed a little high here for what you get, but I think it was the going rate for the area. We'd probably stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
An Oasis in the high desert. Clean, wide, long, level sites. Great of an overnight or a day of rest after a long drive. Yes there is train and highway noise, but the town is not that large so you would hear it anywhere. I'd stay here again along my travels. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price after GS discount. Great overnight stay. Staff appears interested in us and all are very helpful. Escorted to our site. Appears rows E and F are mostly permanents, but the sites are clean with no junk. Transient sites are very clean and reasonably sized. Park is older, but the owners seem to be dressing it up considerably. Wi-Fi is excellent. Water pressure is good. Electric is stable. Utility posts are older, but functional. Value is here for the price. We will stay here again next time through this area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A good overnight park; area is not destination site. Staff is friendly, and we were guided to the site. Pool was clean and very comforting after a long hard drive. Park is quiet although very near to I-80. We have stayed here before and have to say that the park is improving in virtually all areas of the operation. Will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I am a tough rater and tried to stay in another park close by but they "lost" my reservation so had to stay here. From the previous ratings I expected minimal but was pleasantly surprised. Staff was fine, escorted to site, everything worked fine, quiet. Yes, there are many permanent residents but this has become the norm over the past few years. Had no trouble here and it was quiet all afternoon and night. This is my future spot for an overnight in this town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Would rather drive 11 more hours than stay here again. Most long term living with trailers in disrepair. They are up with motors running and doors opening and closing all hours of the night and morning. They stare at you for no reason. Not a traveler destination nor stopover. Very rude front desk / store clerk on the Sunday afternoon shift. Might have a pool advertised, but no one used it the whole time there. Must have been a reason. The high ratings make me question the person or company doing the ratings. Kudos to the website designer for their creativity and imagination of what a park should have. Reality does not match marketing on the web. Beware. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We enjoyed our one night at Hi-Desert. Our site was level. We were in the front of the park and could not hear road noise. Staff were extremely helpful and pleasant. We were escorted to our site, and when we notified staff that we needed a tree trimmed so it would not rub on our slide topper they were very responsive and trimmed the tree. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a park which we would stay at only for one night on the way to somewhere. Don't know why Trailer Life would rate this park so highly. When compared to other parks with a 9.5, this cannot compare. The staff was friendly, but this park definitely needs some TLC and there are a lot of full-timers with old RVs throughout the park. The Wi-Fi did not work. The park was relatively quiet with just the faint sound of the train and freeway nearby, nothing too bothersome. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Decent for being in the desert. Had a nice pool that my kids enjoyed. Wished there had been some grass at the campsites. The showers and restrooms are some of the nicest I have ever seen! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We arrived and were met by a site director person who took us to a site in the back of the park next to the dumpy old trailers. Only park we have been in a long time I felt that I must lock every thing. Very narrow sites, no landscaping. With slides out you would encroach into the other sites. Can not see how this park rates so high in a major directory. From site it was a long walk to the pool. No problem with noise. Stayed for two nights to rest up but that was enough. Site was small and the rear of my trailer was somewhat in the roadway, so I could fit my crewcab p/u in front. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here overnight on our way home. This is a small, older park with a lot of permanent residents. It is next to an old mobile home park that saw better days in the 50's. There is no grass or good trees, but this is Nevada. The spaces were a little tight and we could not see how a big motorhome or 5th wheel (ours is small at 31 feet) could fit but we did see two pull through spaces up front but that’s it, and both look like the residents had been there for some time. The Wi-Fi was okay but started to drop out when the park started to fill up. TV and channels selection was lame but given location, expected. The space we had (70) was most level RV space we have ever seen. The people were nice and check in smooth plus they had a nice pool and it was being used by a lot of kids. There are only three good RV campgrounds in Winnemucca and this is one of them. It is not spiffy but gets the job done. We give it a strong 6. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stop at this park on all trips across Nevada on Highway 80. Easy in, easy out. It's a good place for a night. I gave it a 6 as a rating because I don't like the desert and Winnemucca is right in the middle of desert. There are shade trees and ample sites. Staff is friendly. Thousands of BLM acres just across the street for walking a dog. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I don't know why this is rated so high. The front part is OK, with a nice pool and laundry. The back is full of very old trailers with homemade skirting. Sites are adequate. We stopped here because it is a Passport America park, and an Escapees 50% off park, but guess what? Discount doesn't start until June 1. Have you ever heard of a park giving their biggest discount during their busiest season? Me neither. I would say this place is OK for overnight or doing laundry. Kids might like the pool. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Way too expensive for what you get! I agree with previous reviewers that I do not know why this park would get a high rating from anyone. For $35 you would think that you would not need to have blocks to level, but we did in a sloping site. We did not need, nor use, the cable TV or internet. We have our own Satellite for TV and internet. When we asked for a site with a clear view of the southern ski for our satellite, the woman simply laughed at us and said that there were trees and that she did not know if we would get a satellite view, nor did she seem to care. We were escorted to our site, but the escort did not stick around to see if the site was OK or if satellite would work. There is some interstate highway noise, but it did not keep us awake. They have lots of lights around the place, so it is very bright, which we do not like. As noted, there are many permanent residents, but they seemed to be nice and did not make noise. So, for a quick overnight stop, it is OK, but I might try to find a cheaper alternative. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is located east of the downtown area and is an okay park but not sure why the high ratings by Trailer Life. A bit pricey for what you get. WI-FI was weak. Sites are level, and park is clean. It appears that there are lots of permanent residents. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have been here before and appreciate the availability of long pull-throughs. While the fenced dog walk is small it has enough smells for the dog to stay busy checking it out. The convenience of the park is really great – right off I-80. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice park and convenient to the interstate. Managers were attentive to our extra needs. All utilities worked. Half of the park seemed filled with longer term residents. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Even though it's right off freeway we didn't have traffic noise. Staff very friendly. Only had 30 amp in our site but we needed a long site and it was the only one left. Not many long sites. I would call ahead if you require one. Putt putt golf is a joke> It's small enough to fit in our rig! Only big enough for small children to enjoy. Sites and roads are gravel but maintained nicely. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a clean and nicely maintained park. There are a lot of permanent workers here but the rigs are all nice and the sites are kept clean and neat. Management couldn't have been nicer. Excellent cable and Wi-Fi and although you can see the freeway, noise is at a minimum. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
For the life of me, I cannot understand Trailer Life's rating this park so highly. The sites are tight and on dusty gravel. Everything is very dry and there are quite a few permanent residents coming and going. They claim to have Wi-Fi which was non-existent. We could connect, but not use the internet! The dog yard was stinky and dusty. My dog refused to even go in. This park is okay just for a night traveling through, but that's about it. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Narrow spaces, with some shade trees. Trees are dying due to lack of watering. Showers and restrooms are surface clean, but could use someone who knows more about cleaning properly. The laundry room floor was disgustingly dirty. Small pool and nice rec room. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Parts of this park were nice - we stayed at site 85, near the entrance with a nice shade tree. Further down, near the showers and bathrooms, it was crowded with long term residents, with a lot of congestion and noise. Where we stayed, it was a nine. Down the lanes, it was a three. Wireless was slow, and no newspapers are available at the office. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stopped for one night as a layover on the way from CA to ID. Well-kept park, level sites. A number of seasonal / permanent workers based here. Reasonably quiet, but they tend to drive fast through the camp, and leave early in morning. The construction company next door also starts up early. Quite a bit of dust from next door as well as in the park - a dust devil came through just as were setting up camp, left a lot of grit. Wi-Fi has good signal strength but erratic throughput, seems about par these days. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Every time I check into this place I'm amazed at the work and upkeep that has taken place since the last time I was here. If you have kids (which I don't) you would be amazed at the things there are to do: water wars, putt-putt, shuffle board. Yes, it costs $5.00 a hour for usage per person, but try KOA and see what they charge. As far as the park they still accept several discount cards and the price is right. We keep coming back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We used the Passport America card and paid $17.50 so it was fine for a one night park but a bit expensive if no discount. Check in folks were really nice and helpful, park is mostly gravel sites, clean and not very large but long enough for our 32' and toad. Pool small, lots of kids in it but the hours were strange. Doesn't open till noon which is the hottest of the day so we didn't use it at all. My wife likes to swim in the am but could not. There were some trees for shade but not too many. I'd stay there again for a night if in the area, especially with the discount. Restaurant-they recommended the Griddle for breakfast. I'd avoid it, overpriced and nothing more than your typical diner breakfast. I think a Dennys or Ihop would be even better if you can find one. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice place to stay for a couple days.Wi-Fi was weak as was our Verizon air card. Good utilities except if your power cord attaches at the back of your unit bring an extension cord. The electrical box is at the FRONT of the lot. We would stay here again though. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
All was good with this campground until at 7:30 am when our power management controller detected low voltage. We unplugged our electronics and waited a few minutes but the problem continued. We ended up unplugging until we left. Our rate was Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Consider where you are. The entry and location does not present very well, BUT when we checked in they were very accommodating and moved us to the pull through sites (the other couple was towing a car). The Office area was neat, clean and very friendly! Appears to have some long term residents here, but they seemed to be kept in one area. It was quiet, and the WiFi and cable TV worked great. We never used the restroom/showers so can't tell you personally how they were. The location is close enough to town and whatever you'd want or need. We would stay here again if ever passing through. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Some nice improvements since we were here two years ago (clubhouse upgraded and more gravel on sites). Good for an overnight as it is very convenient to I-80 and since we go up 95 we have to get off I-80 anyway. Rate is for Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We like this park very much and stay here every time we come through Winnemucca. We can stay on a Passport America rate which is great. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the park is clean and well maintained. It is quiet and restful, with great views of the mountains. We camped here in a Motorhome.
It looks like most of the park is set for long term or permanent residents, but the middle 2 rows are for overnight. The sites are gravel and some not real level but extremely manageable. Check in was a snap and you are escorted to your site. There is an enclosed dog exercise area as well as a pet washing facility. Depending on the lenght of your vehicle and sewer hose, you might just wait and dump at one of the 2 dump stations at the park. Although you are fairly close to the freeway, you don't hear the noise. I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park: pleasant check in and escort to site. It's quiet. There are lots of workers from the pipeline project, but it's still quiet. Internet is decent. The sites are gravel and there's no grass. Rate was Escapees $. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Made reservation one day prior to arrival and just for one nights stay. We arrived after dark and in a rain/snow storm. The check in process was quick and easy. They had a very nice gentleman walk us to our site even though it was a miserable December night. We only hooked up to power but the site was very level and all amenities were in place. Pull through with plenty of room to maneuver. Only negative was the WI-FI. Started out slow and then quit altogether. Used our Verizon wireless which had lots of signal. Given its remote location we believed this park to be better than many in nicer locations. Would stay again and hope the WI-FI issue gets resolved. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
My wife and i had planned on staying overnight, on our way to SLC, but ended staying 2 nights, we thought the RV park was one of the nicest we have ever stayed at! Evey one ( staff ) were very helpful, the park was clean and well maintained,we explored Winnemucca and had a wonderful time. I highly recommend Hi-Desert RV Park to anyone passing through. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a good 2-night stop for us. Close to I-80 exit 180. The reservation and check-in process was very efficient. Friendly, efficient staff. The price reflects the Passport America rate, and they accepted credit card payment. I had made a reservation over the phone, not guaranteed, just gave them my name, but they held a site for us, which was a good thing since the campground was full. Most of the clientele were semi-permanent pipeline workers employed on the Ruby Pipeline project which will probably be going on for several months. They put us in a pull-thru near the front of the park. We got some traffic noise morning and evening with the workers going to and from work, but it wasn't objectionable. We would probably use this RV park again as an overnight or 2 night stop. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here in a 40' quad-slide motorhome with tow vehicle. We used our Passport Membership. Sites are advertised as long but our car hung out some or the motorhome would have. We had 50 amp, full hookups, satellite, and a table. Tight turn into site. WiFi was fine. Personnel were friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is one of the worse campgrounds we have ever stayed in. To begin with, I made a reservation way back in July, knowing that I would need to stop here on Sept 17th, and had received an e-mail confirmation that we had a reservation. NOT! From experience, I always bring any confirmation that I have received, so when they stated that we did not have a reservation, I simply showed them the e-mail from the campground. Next, they do show you to your site, which is nothing but dirt and dust, no grass or very little, and they put us way in the back (Site #83) where all of the permanent trailer people are located. Now I noticed up nearer the front, the sites were much better. The WiFi (called premier, their words) did not work half of the time, and when it did it was very, very slow. We will never stay here, again, and I would advise anyone else to try and locate another campground in this area. Years ago, we did stay at the Winnemucca RV Park, and will come back here next time. Wish we had just left when they stated we did not have a reservation and gone to Winnemucca RV Park. One other thing, I love children, but when you are trying to shower or get ready to leave and children are knocking on your camper door trying to sell something, it is very annoying. For your interest, go any place in Winnemucca but this one. We camped here in a Truck Camper.
We stopped in here after last visiting 3 years ago. Wow! What a difference. The new owner has completely revamped much of the park and is still at work making it better. New landscaping, lead-ins to your site and a renovated club house and store really perk the park up. Lots of RV supplies in the store, too. There are two dog runs and a new dogie wash station. Since the park is out of the city the views are great and the road noise minimal. Easy on and off I-80, too. This has become our favorite park in the Winnemucca area. We'll be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
With Passport America the rate was $15. So, for an overnight stay it was fine. The hook-ups are all spread out and we had our hose at its max. We backed up in the morning to hook up to the sewer to dump. Also, it was somewhat noisy along the road (East Winnemucca). The internet wasn't even worth trying to use. Maybe if you're closer to the office it would work better. Our Verizon air card worked fine. There is a Wal-Mart Super Center about 4 miles away. Easy on and off to I-80. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Nice clean sites, well maintained facility. Nice club house room. Hear some noise from I-80, but not a big thing. I knocked off points for the shabbiness of the 2 rows that had long term residents. Weeds in sites, junk sitting around outside, and in general looked shabby. I know RV parks probably need the long term tenants to keep afloat, but perhaps could have and enforce rules about maintenance of neatness of their sites. Helpful and friendly staff. I would return to this park. Stayed 3 nights: first 2 using Passport America rate, 3rd using Good Sam discount. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very nice RV park, we would stay here again. A fair amount of shade trees, especially for the high desert. It was quiet at night. I would stay here before trying the RV park in town. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We reviewed this park before and gave it a 8 because we saw a desire to improve, will this time they truly deserve a eight. The owner is striving to make this a great park for the area, now they still take you through the riff raff (permanent residents) when parking you but even that looks a little better, we will stay here again. The price was a little higher because of Fifties Fever going on in town. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Extremely well run park. Quick, efficient check-in with escort to site. Very clean park with excellent Wi-Fi and premium cable service. We stayed overnight on our way to Carson City and will definitely recommend to other Escapees members. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We used our Passport America here. Half of the park is neat and clean and the other has tall weeds and junk sitting around. Water, power and sewer were fine. Couldn't get my computer to hook up with the parks WiFi so I just used my Aircard. Good cell and satellite signal. The pool looked inviting so I imagine kids would love it. For us this park with a great over nighter. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is good overnight stop on I-80. As others have mentioned, the sites may be challenging for the longer rigs. The facilities were well maintained and very clean. There are a lot of friendly, quiet semi-permanent occupants. We will definitely use this well run facility again while traveling through Nevada. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed 1 night. As others have stated, very dusty and very close spaces. Our 27’ TT and 20’ truck were in the road on both ends of the pull through space. Nice pool, very efficient staff and we were guided to our space and helped with parking. A lot of permanent RVs and most were shabby. The restrooms / showers were clean, but not private. The staff was very helpful and efficient. Exiting our space was close due to vehicles parked at the edge of the road. No grass and very little shade. If passing though we may stay again for a night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Easy access from Interstate, has nice appearance as arriving. Inside it has a frayed look. Many long term RV's but they are in their own rows. Paved roads with dirt sites. Short term sites have gravel between but long term sites are all dirt. Blowing dust could be an issue in the wind. There are trees around but the short term sites don't have many. Friendly staff, escorted to your site, which is good as the gravel is edged by round logs and it is good to have someone guide you in as to not hit them. Our pull thru was barely long enough but it appears there are some longer sites. Wi-Fi worked OK, cable TV has 60+ channels. Highway noise not too much of a problem. Great Basque food at historic Martin Hotel downtown. This park is fine for an over nighter. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is in the process of being upgraded and they are doing a great job with what's completed so far. Very nice folks and we enjoyed our stay. It is located in the high desert and, like all such locations, you can get wind, dust and some trains. We didn't get the wind and dust so our stay was very good. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

A very nice park. We really appreciated the easy in and out. My only complaint would be the permanent residents. There were a lot of junky trailers and unsavory types hanging around here. We weren't 100% comfortable with using the restrooms at night. Not a real problem though. Loved the pond area in front. People were very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price reflects Passport America discount. The staff was friendly and helpful. There is easy access to I-80; noise was not a major issue. They have nice, level pull-through sites (along with back-ins). There are about 60 channels available on their cable TV, which was nice. The staff recommended the Martin Hotel for good local Basque food; it was great. We will definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stay here at least once a year, and have been for the last five years. The new owner is working to get the place back up to speed. It was a real nice park when we first started staying here, then got run down. The new owner had to take the grass out because of Goat Head weeds, now the sites are all gravel. The people that live in park full-time are kept in their own area, but are friendly. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We think this is the best park in Winnemucca. The sites are plenty long and wide. We have 40' coach with four slides and had plenty of room. We did not have to unhook our tow to fit the site. The staff are extremely nice and helpful. The park itself is easy to get in and out of from I-70. Wi-Fi worked great. We will stay here again when we are in the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
If you’re looking for grass, look else where, you’re in the desert. The majority of their sites are pull-thru’s long and wide enough for most any rig. The length of each site does vary a bit though, so I suggest you get there early or call ahead if you need a long one. Slides are no problem, but you may have to draw the line if you want to put your awning down. Camp store, pool, cable, Wi-Fi, 12 machine laundry, clean showers and a friendly staff. It’s not a 5 star, but it gets a solid 4. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We had reservations as when I called they said they had only one site large enough for us. We were escorted to our site. When the fellow who escorted discovered we weren't told the site wasn't 50 amp, he came and offered to find us a different site. Since we were already set up and staying only two nights, we declined his offer but thought it very nice. The sites are mostly pull-through and well defined. The front of the campground has a pond with a small bridge, a wishing well and three benches that was very relaxing as we watched the sun setting. I gave it an 8 rating because the large pull through we were in needed more gravel and 50 amp. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I liked this park, talked to the owner he is very interested in making this a nice park. WI-FI worked great and they take any kind of club card you can find in your wallet, we used Passport America. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The online pictures made this campground look really nice, when in fact, the bathrooms were very old with the smaller one being quite dirty. The pool and rec room was nice though we couldn't get the Wi-Fi to work. The pool was full of folks who lived close by. The owner who was quite nice helped us park but did not think about the slides so we re parked. Instead of grass, we had to park in dirt which was made worse with the high winds. The pet area was just a small dirt/gravel area for the dog to go. There was no table in our site. It was nice enough for a short stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is not a great park, but that's mostly because of the permanent residents - some of them are a little run-down. On the other hand, they ARE friendly and quiet, so remember that looks aren't everything; it's not a bad park, either. The park is quiet, the power and WI-FI are good, the little store is neat and well-organized, and the pool is clean. The washrooms and showers were clean, but a bit run-down. The employees are friendly and the facilities will, I'm sure, improve over time. Our site had room for our 38' MH and tow vehicle, although the sewer connection was 'way back there. They filled all the available spots on a Sunday night, so get reservations. We would stay here again, but it's just an overnight park right now. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was a one night stay for us, good park fairly clean and well taken care of at check-in. My only complaint is the pool was supposed to be opened until 10:00pm. We went to use it after dinner and casino fun at 9:15pm and found it closed. We were a little disappointed because it was still at 9:15pm about 90 degrees. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was an overnight stop for us. The park was clean and well laid out. It was rather less dusty than most desert-type RV parks. Gravel, wood chips, and small patches of lawn made pleasant surroundings. Sites are cordoned off with small logs, so spaces are clearly indicated. Roads and spaces are gravel. A flood (from a nearby drainage channel) had occurred a couple days before we arrived, but the owners were well into cleaning up the mess. Staff was very pleasant. Rate was based on Passport America. We were unable to get a reliable wifi signal at our site. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stopped hee for the night as we were traveling. The staff was helpful and courtious. The space was sufficient for our 35' fifth wheel with three slides. The space was dirt and it was obvious that it had recently been flooded. We will use this park in the future when traveling as a one night stop over. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very nice staff. But there are a lot of long term residents here, many of whom leave for work at 5 a.m. in their diesel pick up trucks. That said, I don't know of any place in Winnemucca that is any better. Good for an overnight stay on the way to somewhere else. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Found the park more than adequate even though there were some older long term residents. This is not Las Vegas. Very helpful and pleasant management. Didn’t use laundry or restrooms. Sites were neat and clean. Would have no problem staying here for several days. Site was big enough for our 40’, 4 slide, and left our toad hooked up. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I made a mistake stopping at this RV park. Most who reside in this park are long term and it shows. Spaces are not designed for RV's with slide outs and are rather a dirty mess. Forget sitting outside as dogs run loose through out the park and the barking will drive one crazy. Wi-Fi too was slow as I have ever seen and abandoned any attempts at surfing the net. I really have nothing good to say about this park, I will admit that the day I left was a good one. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
It is obvious the new management is trying to upgrade this RV park. They are improving the sites and revamping the office. The staff was extremely helpful. It is a nice place to stay and distanced from the Interstate highway so the noise was negligible. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff (the owner I think) was very friendly and said to let her know if we needed anything at all. Cable and Wi-Fi were excellent. We picked this park because of the ratings and after looking at their web site. The pictures of the sites appeared to be very nice. However, where we were located (our entire row and the rows ahead and behind us) the grass was all dead and full of weeds. The utility fixtures need attention. Many were falling apart or taped together. When you walk into the bathrooms you get a very good impression, but they do need attention. The grout and floor moldings look dirty, some areas didn't get painted, and others have the paint chipping off. This was our first time here and I understand there is new ownership so it'll probably get better. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This was a great place for a one night stay. We informed the host that we would be pulling in late, and they had our registration already processed and a site prepared. They have sites placed up front for the use of late arrivals / single night stays. This was a great place to pull through for the night. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Under new ownership and they are working hard. Lots of "permanent residents" and lots of evidence that they are trying to get the park in shape. Friendly staff. Let's face it, if you're in Winnemucca it's only because you're headed somewhere else. This is a good spot to crash for one night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed at " Hi Desert RV " over Memorial Day weekend, it rained ! But we still had a very nice time. We have " camped " here about six times the past couple of years, and after reading some other reviews, It must have been a long time ago . I would recommend this park to everyone ! The staff are very friendly , general store is open and very well stocked, showers and restrooms are clean and work very well, laundry machines work, lots of grass for kids to play on, or just to relax! 50 amp power and free Wi-Fi! We met the owner and he has done a wonderful job making this a beautiful RV park! I don`t know what " Hi Desert " looked like in past years, but I do know when we started staying there in 2007, the park just gets better every time we stay! Try it again and check out the "New", and I guess "Improved" Hi Desert RV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have camped here several times but it is really becoming run down. The sprinklers do not work so the grass is almost gone. The store is closed. The personal were friendly & helpful. Not the campground it use to be. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Hi-Desert RV Resort must have been a very nice park at one time. Currently, everything is run-down. Cow and horse dung is in the park. The pet walk has very little grass and is dusty with animal waste left lying around. The goldfish pond is stagnant and algae filled, but a few fish are still alive. The roses are dying; the park needs irrigation. The store has been shut down. Five washers and four dryers in the laundry room are inoperative. On the positive side: the park workers we have met are friendly and helpful. The park is quiet and well-lighted, but it suffers from neglect. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great new owners!! This park is the one to stay in. Very clean and tidy. Grounds people are always there making sure things are nicely kept. Off the road, don't miss this spot! Owners let us choose our site. Wi-fi and cable worked great. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good park for overnight stay off I-80. Not a real picturesque park (mountain views all around) but easy on and easy off the Interstate. Not recommended for RVs over 40 feet unless you unhook. We came in at forty feet-towing and didn't have to unhook, a nice feature. Relatively quiet in front of park away from I-80. Park store has groceries, drinks, ice cream and some RV supplies. All in all, not a bad place for a stopover. This is our second stay and we will come back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This RV park is a mess!!! We pulled in to our spot and tried to hook up. The utility box fell apart when we opened it. The cable TV hook up was simply a wire coming out of the ground. The whole park is run down and dirty. The "full service" store is almost empty. There are a lot of full timers that live here in all sorts of RV's. What a mess!! We asked for a refund, which was given, and we went down the road. Woodalls' gave this a high rating?? How long since they have been here?? We camped here in a Motorhome.
The park is older but was in good condition. The paved road has some potholes, but not a big problem. We had a pull through site which was not very long. Gravel pads with grass between units. The office staff was friendly and accommodating. We called at the about 6:00 because I-80 was closed due to a range fire. This was the nearest campground we could find, even though it was over 80 miles away. The lady at the office said she would stay until we got here. We were very pleased with our stay here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Nothing to brag about. Clean close sites. Bathrooms old but clean. Laundry and pool were
closed. Pool looks like it is terminal. Reasonably quiet. Freeway in the distance. Beats a casino parking lot. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 8 / 10 ]
There is only a small amount of noise from Hy 80. The park is clean and reasonably attractive. It is located several miles east of Winnemucca, which is somewhat depressed since the mines have closed. Overall, this park is a very decent place to spend a night while traveling. MCOA member. We camped here in a camper.
We arrived in this park tired and in need of a shower. Long walk to register. When we headed for the showers we discovered such filthy conditions that we declined to use them. Complaint only fixed the blocked toilet. Doubt they care there. Showers/toilets are accessible to public 24/7 which may explain the state of these rooms. Rate of $30.00 did not allow any discounts. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The list of negatives far outweighs any positive aspects of this park. Entering the park, you have to walk a fair distance to the hotel to register. The sites are adequate in size and level, with dusty interior roads and a trucker's parking lot next door that has big rigs entering and leaving throughout the night. Noise from the interstate is significant since it runs behind the park. Hookups are 30A only, and our site was a muddy pond since the water hookup leaked. Most of the park is occupied by permanent residents with junk and old vehicles on their sites; our neighbor appeared to have a salvage yard operation at his site. No Wi-Fi or cable TV, but Verizon cell and air card worked well. This park is overpriced at $30/night, and frankly we wouldn't stay here again at any price. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We boondocked in the back parking lot. Did not stay in the RV park. OK for one night. Lots of semis used this lot but with the exception of one very noisy rig we were not bothered by them. Had dinner at the casino cafe and would not eat there again. Very rude cashier. Didn't say thank you until we said 'you're welcome.' Food was barely OK and service was slow. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is a nice basic place to stay if you are staying for one night and don't need amenities. There is no pool or playground for the kids. The sites are pull through, which is nice so you don't have to unhook. I like this RV park because it is right next door to a casino and a nice country style cafe (breakfast was awesome). The service was good and portions huge. They give you a $2 off coupon and a-free-drink-at-the- casino bar coupon per adult. We would stay here again if passing through. The rate is a Good Sams rate. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very crowded sites, spaces were not clean (trash on grassy areas), unfriendly staff. The only reason we stayed was that it is the only casino in town with an RV park. However, not sure I would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed here before, and didn't remember it being so bad. The office was closed, we had to walk through the smoke filled casino to the hotel registration desk. When we got to our very small site, we had to find the owner of the truck parked illegally in it, and ask them to move it. The site was full of dog waste from the neighbor's dogs, so we had to watch where we stepped. The park is full of long term, with nightly folks just stuck in here and there. Lots of traffic speeding through the park, noise from the casino dumpsters being emptied late at night and early in the morning. Also traffic noise from the street. We won't be back. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We have stayed here in the past and the RV park has definitely gone downhill, yet the price was higher. We are disappointed as we always liked the convenience of the casino and stores in the area. More spots were filled with semi-permanent residents and not kept up. They moved the office from a separate building into the casino. Probably will not stay here again. Wi-Fi was down. The spot we wanted did not have working power. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for the second time and were greatly disappointed. We arrived and found the check-in office not open anymore. We had to walk through the smoky casino to the Quality Inn check-in desk. We would have never found it, had it not been for one of the casino workers. The gal at the front desk was unfriendly as it appeared she did not like registering RV's or giving directions to the RV parks. Leaving the hotel desk, we went out the back door to avoid the smoky casino and back to our rig. We went down the row the gal told us to go but found it was not the number we were given then had to circle around again to a different row. The rows were not identified in any way. No WiFi, although we could see the Quality Inn on our computers, it would not open to the Internet, weak signal. We went back to the desk and they said, it should reach, or we could sit in their smoky lobby, not our choice. The spots were short, our 37ft MH barely fit and we had to disconnect our tow and park it alongside the rig. We were told that the park was sold. It is obvious that they are not interested in RV traffic because they do not cater to good relations to RV's to make them walk so far and give them so little info and service. We stayed here several years ago and had an enjoyable experience. We would not return to this park, there are no services for the price now. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Somewhat near the train tracks but not so close the train is noticable, as it would be in some of the other RV parks in this town. Spaces are close together. Park is gravel but has some nice grass at each little site. Fairly quiet. Not a destination campground but fine if you're doing things in this area and need a place to stay. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We used this campground as an overnight stay. We heard traffic noise from the freeway and from Winnemucca Blvd. We arrived later in the evening and the restrooms were already locked for the night. This was quite inconvenient and required us to use the water and sewer hook-ups, which we had not intended to do. We could not vacate the park quickly enough in the morning. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
When traveling through Nevada on I-80, don't even think about stopping here. This campground is noisy from not only the freeway, but the refer trucks parked next door. The spaces are extremely crowded and cramped. It was extremely warm the night we camped here and we couldn't even open a window because of the noise. The bathrooms were locked at 9:00PM and were supposed to open at 7:00AM. At 7:30AM, they were still locked and we were told by the casino people that security had not arrived yet to unlock the bathrooms. We left at 8:30AM and they were still locked. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
When you pull in there is no one there to check in with; you have to find the front desk and check in there. They say they have cable and Wi-Fi, but they don't. Cable has been out for years, and you can get Wi-Fi if you sit in the hotel. The bathrooms were locked at about 7pm and were not opened when we pulled out at about 8:30-9:00am the next morning. The sites are very short, but they were clean. The staff members were nice. Had dinner in the hotel restaurant; the food was very good, but they had a water problem and had to close. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Parking lot style: very tight, lots of trees that mainly got in the way. But for an overnight in Winnemucca, there are not many choices. It seemed mainly populated by transient/seasonal/project workers, with many, many trucks. The park's restaurant was pretty good... for Winnemucca. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Surly manager. Very difficult to access park (scraped motorhome badly). Mostly monthly/construction workers in residence. Very loud on Interstate 80. Woodalls says 4 stars. Don't believe it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We made reservations for two nights in this park (?) for a 50 amp, pull-through to accommodate our big rig. When we arrived on that date, they informed us that they had given away the last site which had 50 amp service and they only had 30 amp site left. They didn't seem to care in the least bit that it was impossible to spend two days without air conditioning and cooking facilities. The reservations were made in June for a September arrival. Luckily we found another spot in town at Hi-Desert RV Park, which was more than adequate for us. Evidently, this Model T Park is strictly first-come, first-serve: reservations or not, even though we arrived before 3 PM. If we ever find ourselves in Winnemucca again, we would sooner stay at The Flying J Truck Stop. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Model T had friendly staff and very nice facilities (e.g. two separate warm rooms with toilet/shower/sink in each room). The RV area is a cement parking lot, with a small grassy area, tree, and picnic table in between each space. Although children are definitely welcome, it is not ideal for a long stay with young kids if you plan to be at your site a lot, as the grassy area next to your RV is small and the pull-through sites lend to RVs driving by on either side of your site at any time. There is a MacDonalds Play Place in walking distance, but all other parks are a drive. A nice bonus of the RV Park is that there are restaurants and a major grocery store right across the street. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Site are level but only 35 feet long. While towing our car, we are almost 60 ft long. We stick out into the next row but the lady at the desk said "no big deal"..no big deal as long as nobody comes in tired at midnight and runs into you. They don't have restrooms or showers so be self contained. The electric is 30 amps and adaquate for our one night. A little noisy being close to Hwy 80 but not bad. Would stay here again when passing thru. We camped here in a Motorhome.
No WIFI, check their website for coupons for RV site and coffee shop. Easy access OK for overnight though poor power if you stay check your voltage meter frequently to prevent damage to your appliances ie A/C in summer or electric heater in winter. They do disclose power fluctuations on your receipt. Grocery store across the street and Flying J a block away. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good option for overnight or exploring the area. Park is clean and close to town. Trees and grass are nice. Although close to I-80, noise was not a problem. Sites are pull through. Middle sites better for larger riggs. Restaurant is located close by and is reasonable. Be sure to try the Martin Hotel for Dinner We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Great location right off the highway, but not noisy. Each site has a tree and grassy area. Spaces were long enough so we didn't have to unhook. Paved roads and pads. Much better than another park we stayed at before. We will be back here again for sure. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
I gave this an 8 due to the noise from the ajoining casino and highway. But the campground itself is fine. Spots are close together but provide a nice grassy picnic area with table. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Casino has a very good restaurant with a buffet available. We stop here frequently on our way to Salt Lake to visit family. Not much for kids to do. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Hmm, I guess our experience here was not quite like everyone else's. Staff at the campground itself was friendly during check-in, filled propane, etc. Our site (#22) was short and narrow; we were barely able to open the slides. RVs and cars were sticking out past the sites, one partially blocking our pull-through. The water at our site did not work, nor did the cable, and the entire campground lost power 3 or 4 (at least) times overnight. Staff seemed annoyed when I called about it ("Um, okay, I'll try to get maintenance out there"). Maybe it's a winter thing, but even the brochure warned they could lose power if too many heaters or A/Cs were on. Not acceptable in my book. No real "pet area" either. Restaurant at the casino wasn't great, wish we'd gone across the street to the BBQ place! We will try not to stay there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We have stayed at the Model T many times, its on our route to the Tetons from California. Every time it has been without a hitch. Clean sites, easy access, courteous management. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A very good spot for an overnight stay. Very reasonably priced with no extra for tax. The sites are narrow and not long. The sprinklers go off in the middle of the night with water spots on the coach. No Wi-Fi access. You have to remember that this is a casino RV park and they want you to gamble. This park fills up very early during peak summer season. Be sure to call for reservations. The office staff was very helpful. You do get some noise from the truck parking in the next lot and from the freeway. There is a picnic table and a bit of grass for most sites. Only a very few 50 amp. sites - be sure to call and reserve one. No extra charge for 50 amps. The museum in Winnemucca is the best small town museum we have ever seen. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Staff friendly and had reservations ready for us. This was a very short pull-thru area and a little tight for large rigs. We have small travel trailer and drove through pull-thru without a problem. Could be a bit more difficult for larger trailers and RV rigs. It's was a great place to use for an overnighter and moving on to next destination. Convenient restaurants, stores, and shops nearby, and casino for a little entertainment. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This is a nice little park for an over night stay. It is clean and well taken care of. The sites are level and paved. There is traffic noise as it is next to the freeway but seems to be minimal at night. For 20 bucks it is hard to beat!! There is a wonderful restaurant across the street called Flying Pigs Bar-B-Q that has to die for ribs. Plus they deliver to your site. Ribs, beans, coleslaw and garlic toast all for $20. One dinner was enough for two of us. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
All sites are pull-thrus (22'x40'), with paved parking. Each site has a shade tree, patch of grass, and wooden table. Park was built prior to slide-outs being invented, so the parking spots are very narrow, with slides on one side deployed. I could not open my rear trailer door, because the tree blocked it. Parking for your tow vehicle is cross-ways of the site and partially into the service road. There are two combination restrooms/showers, which were clean. There is a small gift shop, ATM, LP gas, pool, and restaurant. Discount for AAA and Good Sam. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
[ 7 / 10 ]
My wife and I stayed here March and December 2003. Then again April 2005. These were one night stays only. The spaces are adequate for slideouts. We give it a 7 because it was easy in and out and quiet. Winnemucca is not a place we visit but travel thru. The restaurant is decent and reasonably priced. Get fuel with a towable prior to Winnemucca in either direction as it is tight turning in town. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 8 / 10 ]
The location was very easy to get to off the freeway, located next to a casino and stores.
It was a nice spot to take a break on our route through the state. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
New park that also has mobile homes around it. An empty man camp. Very friendly and helpful check in. No one seems to know about this one. New casino smoke free. And restaurant and bar. Does honor passport America. Phenomenal rate! We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is good for overnight stay. It is gravel with few shade trees. There are some more permanent residents on the outside spots but this does not make this a bad spot to stop. The owners are very nice, accommodating and the pool was very nice. The spots are tight but for overnight this is a good stop. The Cable TV was the best we had in 10 days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is an all gravel park but has wide level sites. Nice pull thru sites but very little shade. The wifi worked fine but the tv channels were not the best selection. The staff was very friendly and helpful. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Convenient to freeway but quiet. Easy to maneuver a big rig. Our site was level and had a small shade tree. Showers could use some updating but are clean with plenty of hot water. Staff is super nice and helpful. WiFi was good. We would stay here again. Price reflects Escapees discount. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Rate is for a 50 amp FHU pull thru site with GS discount. If you were to remove the RV's, pedestals, and few scattered trees, this would be a large gravel field. The sites are very close together and you pull in the opposite direction as your neighbor, sharing the same pedestal. Power was on the low side, and water pressure could have been better, even though there were a number of empty sites. There are many permanent workers here and they park wherever they want and pay no attention to the speed limit. We would not stay here again if in the area. We saw a much nicer (and as it turned out, higher rated) park just to the east of this park when leaving, and would stay there next time. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is just a place to stay for the night. Office staff was nice, but the place is full of small trailers and long term renters that do not know about speed limits. The overnighters are at the front of the park in pull through spots. This is all gravel so the speeding trucks and cars are noisy especially at 5 AM. Sites are very close together. Overall a safe place for the night but that was it. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Gent at the registration desk was friendly & helped us with setup and provided helpful info about fuel stations and eating options in the area. Park is easy in-easy out pull thru sites. Cable TV is good. Sites are pretty close together for my taste, but we are only staying one night. Former guests didn't pick up after their pets. Wi-Fi was offered, but I have a Verizon hotspot which seems slow even with 4G & 3-4 bar service. Price is after Good Sam discount & before taxes. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We did not stay here but tried to. Had a reservation and were tired and hot when we pulled in. Were met at the entrance by a lady who said they made a mistake, they are now full. I told her we had a reservation, her response is that they were full. Went down the street and had a good stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Large flat gravel pull-thoughs. Easy in-easy out for 38 ft. 5th wheel. All utilities work well. Cable TV with good channel selection. Very vice pool. Camp host showed us to site and assisted with helping us park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Disgusting park. Can't really rate this RV park. We were lucky to get a site since we didn't arrive until 4pm and they only had 2 sites left. Staff is nice. Sites: Tight together, short, buddy sites (shared utility post). Hook Ups: FHU Pets: Policy states must be under 25#'s, but they let our 60# dogs in without question. Small (10'x20'), dirty fenced in pet walk area. No waste bags supplied, but they do supply a heavy metal shovel and a bent up rake to scoop. A sign is posted that dogs should be on leash. Huh? In a fenced in area? I'll be glad to leave tomorrow. That is the only place they want dogs to do their business. The grassy areas along the edge of the park are for tenting. They try to use every inch for income. These tent areas are 10'x10' areas with a grill along the fence line. Wi-Fi was free, but they did not offer us the code, and we didn't bother since it was only overnight. Verizon Internet was very slow, sometimes timing out. No signal at all with Sprint internet. Dump station was not working. Gave it a 1 instead of 0 because staff was nice and hookups worked. I was very happy to leave this place. I couldn't take this more than one night. I'd rather boondock in a parking lot than stay here. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Very easy access from I-80. Good interior gravel roads, lots of trees. Sites are gravel, level, narrow and relatively short. The pull-through sites are "side-by-sides"; you and your neighbor can almost reach out your windows to shake hands. Great utilities (50/30/20 amp). Lots of "don't do it" rules. Quite a number of permanent, smaller, older, trashy units scattered among the "high paying customers". I say "high paying" because this is the most expensive park we've stayed in so far this year. The next time we are passing through Winnemucca I will check prices versus amenities at nearby parks (there are a number of them in Winnemucca). If only for one night I would find out if RVers can use the WalMart or a casino parking lot. As an aside: the best diesel price (and easy in - easy out for a diesel pusher with a toad) in Winnemucca is at Sage Petroleum on Railroad Street (very near WalMart). We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff are very friendly and helpful. There are shuttles available to a few casinos and the swimming pool looks nice. However, the park itself is gravel with a very small ring of grass around the outside. The sites are average size but feel hot, dusty and offer very little shade. The bathrooms are relatively clean but very basic and dated. For an overnight stopover, this is adequate but I wouldn't want to stay longer than that. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed overnight on the way home. Called about 3 hours ahead of arrival to make sure of a pull through. People very friendly and helpful. Ordered pizza from local place to deliver. Gravel sites with 70' pull throughs. Very quiet. Only 30amp so there were some rolling in & outs of electricity, but not bad. We would stay here again on a trip. Some people winter over here. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Easy entry and exit, gravel roads and sites, very friendly staff. Unfortunately, that is the best part. The women's restroom was not clean. The rubber floor mats have not seen cleansers in a very long time. The matted hair, soap residue and heaven knows what else is unacceptable. The mats need to be replaced, walls painted and the entire area sanitized. Overall, appears to be a very old park with few shade trees and in need of overall upkeep. Campers were small percentage vs. permanent residents. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
We stayed here for one night as a "stopover" and were pleasantly surprised at the accommodations. The staff was very friendly and led us to our site. The site was very long so we did not have to unhook. All utilities including Wi-Fi worked fine. The park is all gravel, but packed hard enough so that there was little dust. Quite a few permanent and semi-permanent sites due to reopening of the gold mines nearby. Pool was nice after a hard day in the saddle. If you are looking for a stopover or a place to spend a couple of days to recharge your batteries, this is it. We would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Well maintained gravel park. Owner showed us to the lot and guided us so that we could clear the mature tree. Lots are narrow. Could not open one basement door as the slide brought it too close to the services. Pull through lots are long enough to keep the towed vehicle attached. But the back to back configuration and narrow sites leave no privacy. Pool is clean but rather chilly for our tastes. No showers or restroom at the pool. Rating: Back to Back -1, Narrow sites -1 = 8 We camped here in a Motorhome.
Owners take pride in their park. We called them during the softball tournament and they made room for us when everyone else was sold out. The park is clean, well maintained and about the best you are going to get in Winnemucca. Ample room between sites since there aren't campfires. RV supplies in the office and some cool little gifts. Keep in mind you are in Winnemucca, a nice lay over in the Nevada desert not a destination. As for the long time residents they are not the park model trailers or you typical "trailer person". Mineral mining is a huge industry in Winnemucca and the employees spend week nights in a normal newer travel trailer etc. So you are not sharing a space in a residential RV park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
[ 7 / 10 ]
Managers were absolutely friendly and nice, but I'd put this in the category of "Gravel Parking Lot" type of RV park. Fine for an overnight stop but not much of a draw otherwise. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The staff is very friendly and they spot you at your site. The whole park is gravel with grass only on the edges of the park and they pack you in pretty closely but it's fine if only staying for a short time. There is a shuttle to Winner's Casino that runs until midnight. There is Wi-Fi at your site and they have cable TV but it needs to be upgraded to HD because it cut out a lot. We would definitely stay again (but we're bringing our satellite dish next time)! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
This was intended as just an over nighter. Staff were VERY helpful and friendly. However, RV's are jammed in this park like sardines. Sites are gravel and level and main roads are gravel. Dog friendly, but only place to walk a dog is on the road, they do market their "Dog Park". But, it is nothing more than a fenced in dirt area about the size of a small den. There are a lot of long term RV'ers there due to construction work and the park was relatively quiet. There is a small store on grounds. I would use this place again for a very short stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
I cannot be as enthusiastic as the previous reviewer however. This is a well managed park with a very friendly staff. Sites are a little tight but not uncomfortable. Park is mostly full as there is a large construction project in the area. Wonderful to see commerce at work. We stayed overnight and would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We cannot say enough about this park. Well setup, internet and cable TV worked fine. Hosts are the very best. We intended to stay one night but we stayed 3 nights which should say a mouthful of praise for this campground. Would not only stay here again but might stay a few days as well. The Winnemucca area is noted for Basque cooking. We went to the Hotel for dinner and it was excellent! We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Trailer trashy park with people living in their RVs. RVs on both sides of us looked abandoned. Sites are narrow and RVs are oriented face-to-face so there is no privacy. If your neighbor gets the picnic table before you do, its just tough, baby. Would only stay here if I had no alternative and it was just to sleep for the night, then move on. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Was barely okay for an overnight with lots of permanent or long term residents, and just about all side by side hookups. We are not "fans" of side by side as its the luck of the draw as to your neighbor, (we had a good one) with whom you share the 5 or 6 feet of common space. Would not stay here again as it was too crowded. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Very friendly staff who escorted you to your site, which was a very long pullthrough. We didn't need to unhook the car. Ideal for an overnight stay. Pitches fairly close. Handy for I-80. Would stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay at Winnemucca RV Park which is family-run and provides a personal escort to your site. The pool was great, the bathrooms were not fancy, but were clean and had great showers. We were able to buy some RV parts on site. The new Wi-Fi service was still very weak and we were only able to get online in the early mornings. There are residences just outside and surrounding the park, but it was quiet enough and had lovely evening breezes and views. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Great overnight stop. Stayed in a pull through and didn't have to disconnect at 65 feet. Owner/manager was extremely friendly and helpful. I feel bad giving it an 8 because we enjoyed ourselves and it is a just the right driving distance from the Bay Area. Rated down due to number of full time occupants and dust from gravel roads in park. WiFi, cable TV, water and sewer are all excellent. Needed to call ahead though. It was full by 7PM. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Price was CampClubUSA. Great place for overnight. Lots of permanent people in park it seems. Very pleasant check-in and was escorted to site. Trees provide shade for many sites though shedding leaves this time of year. GPS places park on right as you travel north when actually it is on left in plain view. Good Wi-Fi signal and so many TV channels hard to estimate how many. Pleased with our stay. We camped here in a Motorhome.
In general, I agree with the comments of recent reviewers. The park has the facilities desired by most of today's RVers and seems to be clean and well run. It was not full during our visit, so it may be different during more crowded conditions. For example: the Wi-Fi worked fine for us at our site. There is little within walking distance, so you need a car to get to town, stores, restaurants, casinos, etc. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A good overnight spot with gravel sites and fairly level. Very nice owners and staff will escort you to your site and point out the connections if necessary. Cable TV is available but we didn't use it. Wi-Fi worked great for awhile, but then became un-usable. Verizon card worked fine. Would overnight here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good park for an over-nighter: level, gravel, with pull-through sites. They have added Wi-Fi since we were here last, a bit slow but better than none. Restrooms were clean but old, need some fixing up. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Park has cable TV and a swimming pool. There was some freeway noise at night. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is our go-to place when heading home to Reno. Sites are close but not intrusive. Staff is very helpful and friendly. Will always be our last stop before home: unless they have different owners and the place goes downhill. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice enough park for the desert, but we really didn't care for the sites being jammed so closely together. You won't have a prayer of putting an awning out, but then again since Winnemucca is always windy, you probably won't want to put it out anyway. There is a little grass down each side of the park, but the RV sites are all just a gravel parking lot down the center. The people are extremely nice and helpful, and the pool is lovely, so that helps. A good place to stop, but not a fancy resort. We camped here in a Motorhome.
A nice, clean RV park. Owners were very friendly. Park is good for an overnight stay or longer. We had good satellite reception and their WIFI worked well. Sites were gravel and were a little too narrow. We could not open our kitchen slide without hitting a tree. We would camp there again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good place to stop for an overnight stay on the way across I-80. The owners were very friendly and helpful. It is an older campground but well kept. I have used this campground twice over the years and would go back again. I tried another campground here on another trip and made a mistake by not sticking with this one. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good Sam park. Very gracious managers and a well-stocked store. We enjoyed our stay here and will stay there again. It is a few minutes drive to the freeway and to the old, picturesque downtown gaming area. We highly recommend it. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Sites are side by side. We were in a pull though which is long. 50 amp with a table and sites are level. Personnel are friendly and helpful. Don't like looking into another RV just an arm length from our RV. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice little park and we'd recommend it to others. The owners are on-site and operate the park themselves. They are exceptionally friendly, personable people. We stayed here using a Coast 2 Coast affiliate rate. The Park does not have any grass, but the crushed rock is just fine. The sites are long and very level side to side. There are numerous shade trees for summer shade. The WiFi is slow and we were not able to get Verizon data. Also, the ladies bath was clean, the men's dirty. While there are many full-time campers here the park is very neat and organized. I like it when an operator sets good standards. This is a very safe park. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This is just an average park with nothing special. It is an old KOA with gravel roads and sites. The utilities are side by side so you end up just a couple feet from your neighbor. You do get a picnic table, and the managers are nice. I would not return if I could find anything better in Winnemucca. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here one night on our way to South Dakota. We had a pull thru and did not have to unhook which was nice. Site was gravel but very level. We got in after office closed but the manager said to just come to get him at his trailer, he was very friendly and helpful. It was dark and he led us to our site which was very helpful. In the morning when we left we noticed that the park had a lot of permanet residents. We would stay here again just for one night. Only complaint was not a good area for dogs. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
This RV Park is only good for a 1 or 2 day stay. The RV Park is dry and the roads are gravel and dusty. There are many permanent residents in older and I do mean older RV's in the back of the Park. The staff/mangers were friendly and helpful. The cable TV signal was good. The Wi-Fi was slow and signal was weak and faded in/out, but was semi usable. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Leaving Reno, Nevada traveling to the east, there are few campgrounds to spend a evening. From one campsite publication, Woodall, Winnemuca, Nevada was selected. Not only the campground, Winnemucca RV Park, but the town itself should change their name to Yak-a-mucca. The campground had many, many permanent residents, and the condition of their RV and space around their site was mostly very poor. The owners, stated "our site was one of the largest pull-through sites." We chose a pull-through because our travel plans were to leave early and not "drop" our tow vehicle. Before retiring for the evening, no campers or etc. were in front of our vehicle. Leaving would be very, very difficult but with caution and no vehicles to our forward position, it was possible. In the AM, we discoverd a camper across from our site and with the size of our rig, we would have to disconnet the tow and back out to leave. Luckly, the smaller motorhome in front of our coach, decided to leave at the same hour. Moving a pinic beach, fire pit, and a one-way sign, we left and would never return. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice RV park with level gravel sites, all pull-thru, some shade. Cable TV and Wi-Fi are included. Restrooms and pool were clean Staff was very friendly and informative. We stayed here back in 2005 and can see great improvements since then. Best one in Winnemucca is our opinion. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Winnemucca RV Park. What a nice surprise! The owners were very friendly and put us at ease for our first time in an RV park. It was near the beaten path (I-80), but far enough off to get some peaceful quiet. Although few children, our's was happy in the pool. We camped here in a Tent Trailer.
We felt this park needed some TLC, it was nice at one time, but is showing its age! The WiFi is the weakest I`ve ever seen. We used to enjoy this park at one time, but that was when it was the "only " game in town, now there is competition so maybe they will finely start putting some money back into the place instead of their pockets ! We camped here in a Motorhome.
All gravel, no grass except where the tent sites were. Very dusty. Really sweet couple run the place. They have a store with many "basics" that would be needed by RV'ers. Was pretty cold, so we were asked to disconnect the water line each evening. Small dog run. Very clean facilities, despite the dust. We camped here in a Motorhome.
They must have been working on this park because our experience was nothing like the last review. We found this park to be nice, spacious, big-rig friendly, and well kept. The dog walk was neat and clean and there is a small area where your dog can run off-leash. We called to let them know we would be arriving after dark and the manager said "no problem, I will watch for you on the monitor". He came out and gave us an escort to the site. That is a nice touch not often seen. We would return here for a stopover again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Fine park for an overnight stay. Full hookups available, 50 AMP, and park is satellite friendly in some spots, more heavily treed in others. People working were nice and helpful. If we pass this way again, we would stop here. They give discounts to both Escapees and Good Sams. WIFI is free. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We stayed here twice on a cross-country trip from California. We stayed once on our trip East and once on our trip home. This is not a fancy park by any means but it was clean and pleasant. The couple running the campground was very friendly and helpful. When we asked for a particular site on our second visit, they made sure that we got the one that we wanted. The park was gravel with level sites and shade trees. It is a good place for a stopover, with nice restrooms, a well-stocked store and good management. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This was listed as a C2C campground so right off the bat when I tried to make reservations using my C2C I was greeted with an angry woman complaining about how C2C tries to fill them up this time of year and they can't accept C2C now-the most she could give me is a 15% discount. We stayed 1 night only, gravel sites, close together with too many live-ins. Good for one night stops. Nice cold pool, store etc.. Would only go there again if I had to have a place to stop for a night. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice park for an overnight stay. Friendly and helpful staff. This park is under new ownership and improvements are being made. Free Wifi was available at office, but repeaters and antennas were in the process of being installed. Pet area clean and adequate. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Dusty RV Park adjacent to I-80, so traffic noise is heard throughout the park. Dirt roads and parking aprons. Many sites had permanent tenants, giving this RV park a Mobile Home park feel. WiFi is $6 per day. Stay one night if you must, then move on. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We stayed here at a discounted rate through Coast to Coast resorts Good Neighbor Program. This park is a little over a mile off of Hwy 80 and close to downtown Winnemucca. We were pleasantly surprised at check in when we were given a number of coupons for discounted drinks/dinner/gambling in town as well as recommendations for dinner. ( It reminded us a little of the 'old' Vegas ). The park itself has some trees and a lot of pull thru sites. There is a nice pool and store/laundry room. The interior roads are gravel. We camped here in a Motorhome.
The trailer life rating on this park is not at all accurate. This park is terrible! Everyone was packed in so close. You would be better off parking with a trucker in a parking lot. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This park is not as advertised in Trailer Life. We chose not to pay $2 per hour for WiFi. They advertised: "70ft pull through sites" on their marquee. They need to buy a new tape measure. We barely got our 40 ft. MH in the spot. They charged $10 extra for 1 extra adult!!! No grass. Paid extra for dogs and dog run was horrible and full of dog waste!!! Train whistle in the middle of the night. We will never camp here again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Good for an overnighter. Gravel level sites, not much shade, nice outdoor pool, small store, game room, cable TV, modem in office (free), or WIFI ($6 day). Away from I-80 noise. Nice folks in the office. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
OK for a couple of days. Very nice pool area and store. Owner very helpful with local info. The back appears to be permanent people and front fills up with overnighters. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
If you stop only to gamble, this might be an okay park. We didn't care for it at all. It's fairly small, maybe 2 small city blocks, and everything but a small grass strip on the edge is gravel. Sites are all crammed in side-by-side, with not enough room to put out awnings. For what you get, we thought the expense was out of line. Just our opinion. We camped here in a Motorhome.
