We found this to be a very nice state park with large sites and plenty of space to move around. The price was a little high for a campsite with no utilities, but it was well-kept. This is our first visit to a Nevada State Park, but if they are all this nice, it won't be our last. Verizon MiFi didn't work well here, but Dish Satellite was good. We camped at Kershaw-Ryan State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Overall Rating:

Small park that far exceeded our expectations. Only 15 spaces, no hook-ups. Mostly back-ins, with some very long, plus a handful of "parallel parking" spots. Sites have fire rings, grills, and a ramada with picnic tables This is the second Lincoln County Nevada SP we've stayed at this year, and both have been very clean and very, very well maintained. We didn't need any side-to-side leveling, and the space had been recently raked. The CG is near the mouth of the canyon, about 3/4 mile further up is the real beauty with lush vegetation and a 1.5 mile Canyon View Loop hike. We took the ranger's suggestion and hiked up the main wash until we hit a dirt road, turned left and followed it down into the town of Caliente, then walked on the streets back - roughly 7.5 mile loop. The park was very quiet and dark at night. The rest of the SP is gated off from dusk until about 8 am. Cathedral Gorge SP is not too far away and is worth a visit. The Lincoln County visitors' information is awesome, some is available right at the park entrance. We did the Rock Art tour in Rainbow Canyon (stop #2 is a bit tricky, we were rubbing on bushes going up the dirt road). There are railroad tracks about a mile across the canyon from the CG, we found the sounds to be soothing and the trains were not too frequent. We camped at Kershaw-Ryan State Park in a Travel Trailer.

April is not the most scenic month to view the wide variety of plants in this park, but it's still a nice, clean and quiet place to stay. The staff had not yet planted 500 flowers grown in the onsite greenhouse so there is much to see in other months. The staff was very friendly and helpful with sightseeing destinations and there was someone working on the park nearly continuously. The sites were not real level and were "wash boardy", but that won't preclude me from staying here again for another eleven days. We camped at Kershaw-Ryan State Park in a Motorhome.

This is a fantastic Nevada State Park! Eastern Nevada is unique and full of surprises, this park is one of them. This is probably the nicest and most meticulously maintained State Park we have ever found. The facilities are incredible and the campground is kept absolutely spotless clean by one of the most dedicated and friendly hosts we have ever met. The bathrooms and sites are probably the best you will ever find. The host shared his local knowledge with us and guided us to the Delamar ghost town, without a doubt, one of the high points of our trip. (you do need four wheel drive for that trip though) The town of Caliente is also a neat and clean little mining town with lots of history. Don't miss the incredible hiking trails and the really neat park just a short distance above the campground. Incredible scenery and magnificent high desert ambiance. We can't wait to return to this area next winter. There are three other really nice State Parks in this area too. Kershaw-Ryan and Cathedral Gorge can easily handle big rigs. Spring Valley and Echo Canyon Parks are a little more snug and may present a challenge for a rig more than 32 feet in length, but well worth a day trip to see them. We camped at Kershaw-Ryan State Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Beautiful CG, approximately two miles out of Caliente off of SR 317, with exceptionally deep and level gravel sites. The State Park is the home of the former Kershaw Gardens which includes; wild grape, roses, and a number of other flowering plants -- neat to see that foliage in the middle of the Nevada desert. Generators are allowed between 7:00 am and 10:00 pm. Water spigots are interspersed through the CG and a dump Station. The day use area, about a mile from the CG, includes; the gardens, start of the trails, picnic area and a wading pond. This Park is a MUST SEE! We camped at Kershaw-Ryan State Park in a Motorhome.
