2 Parks near Alamo, Nevada
Nov 2015 - $23.00
We pulled in to Picketts very early one day to avoid the high winds. Welcoming greeting at the gate and guidance to park; friendly, efficient check-in with lots of information about next door restaurant, local groceries, etc. All gravel park with some shade, pull-through and back-in sites, all with full hook-ups.
We backed in at the back of the park; sites would be VERY close if the park had been full. As it was, it felt spacious and we had beautiful, large, rustling trees, a babbling creek and a peaceful view out the back window.
The Internet is strong, cable good. Laundry is immaculate as are restrooms --- complete with BATHTUBS!! There is a small book exchange available, too.
All in all, a lovely haven from the wind, friendly, helpful managers. - BCRVers

New owners and new management at this park. Everyone is very friendly and helpful. The grounds are clean and well maintained. There are several long pull-throughs if you don't want to unhitch. There are also about 10 back-in sites next to the trees and creek. There is some noise from the store next door, but it is not disruptive. The new manager is building up a small book exchange near the laundry room. - DiplomatTraveler

Came in after dark and they still welcomed us! Long pullthru site with full hookups and 70 psi water pressure.
Sites gravel, clean and level. A night light on the water post to help you when you hook up.
Will stay here again when passing thru. - Bluebird Bob

This is a small FREE camping area located between the highway and the lake. The sites are widely spaced (we are two campers together in my pic as we were traveling together) along a long gravel road. There are a lot of mature cottonwoods that provide nice shade. There are tent and RV spots and technically we were in a 1 RV or 2 car spot, but the camp host was ok with it. There was a lot of road noise, as these are very near the highway, but it was somewhat less at night. There are two pit toilets, one at each end of the camp road, that were very clean. There is a 3 mile walking trail along the lake that was a nice morning walk. We were joined by a blue heron in the water near us both in the evening and morning we were here. Note, there is no notice of the turn to the campground if you are coming from the north. The sign is around a slight curve behind a hill so look carefully. I can't remember exactly what our cell coverage was, but we have ATT and it was good enough to stream a video. - ALbums

Really an amazingly pleasant place to camp with sites right on the lake. And it's free! The only negative is the traffic noise from Hwy 93. The previous review has it right. Great birding, great scenery. I'm going back this coming week. There are only 12 sites and only a few are for RVs so arrive early. - mockturtle

I wish I knew about this place last year when I stayed at a nearby, overpriced, RV Park in Alamo. All campsites are along the eastern side of the Upper Pahranagat Lake. Being a wildlife refuge it is a birder's paradise. There were hundreds of birds of various types. It was great waking up to the morning calls of the ducks. The views are spectacular, especially at sunset. There is no charge for camping, only a 14 day limit over a 30 day period. No hookups of any kind, just a few pit toilets. No generators allowed. I would definitely stay here again. - mrbob
