23 Parks near Carson City, Nevada

Convenient location & reasonable price. Bad layout, interior roads tight & folks still park halfway into the roads. The dump station is tucked in a bit tight. They water the sites 2x per day a couple days a week, which makes you pack up each time or get all your chairs/tables/bbq's/etc. soaked. Your rig gets sprayed too, water quality leaves spots all over. Men's bath/shower had paper all over floor, stained shower curtains, not cleaned the 4 days we were there. - rvrrat520

The Gold Dust Casino's tag line says it all, "In the middle of everywhere!" This is a great casino park. There's nothing fancy but it has everything one needs for a few days or weeks in the Carson City area.
The bathrooms, showers and laundry were immaculate. Also, the casino hotel spa and pool is available to RVers although we didn't use them.
Rigs longer than 35' may find it tight but the biggest tip is to unhook and hookup outside the park. There's a huge casino parking lot just outside the park but we still watched a number of clueless people block the interior drive to unhook/hookup and then struggle to make the corners.
As always my biggest gripe was inconsiderate dog walkers who ignore the provided dog run and let their dogs do their business anywhere but that's not the casino's fault. The casino seems to clean up any messes very quickly. - LM&TinView

This is a convenient park for visiting Carson City. Good wi-fi and satellite access. There is a pool available but we didn't use. The main negative is the width of sites, you are very close to your neighbor! I was worried about noise but it was very quiet. If you want a receipt you have to physically check-out at the hotel on departure. We would stay here again. - vmi1962

Park has quite a few long term residents but their rigs are well kept and do not detract from the overall environment. When approaching the park on Carson St you must enter from the southbound lanes as there is an island in the road. The park is close to any kind of service or store that you might need. - DennisA

We had decided to stay in Carson City for 3 to 4 nights to enjoy the museums and see what the capital of Nevada was about. From pulling into the park, the office is in front of you and have to make a U-turn to get to your spot. There appears to be alot of long term RV'ers here with one side looking run down and trash all over the place. Luckily the woman in the office (very rude talking about other customers and cussing excessively) put us on the other side or we would have left. They use paper and no computer system, so after navigating some tight turns and roads, we found our spot, setup and settled in. Unfortunately we had to put up a deposit for the shower/restroom key and to my wife's dismay, key worked in BOTH the mens and women doors so she choose to use the RV shower instead. Restrooms were out of toilet paper in the women's side (this was just after 12pm, we told the lady in the office and she had an attitude about it and told a kid standing in the office to put toilet paper in the women's restroom). There is also a deposit required to use the cable ($75), luckily we had satellite of our own and chose to use ours. We ended up leaving early after some shady characters were driving around trying to steal things from around peoples rigs, going up and down each row every night after dark. We will never return, we need to feel safe but we definitely didn't at this park. - sunfriek

Minimal shade and approaching from the South, one must make a U-turn and then enter. For TV, you had to put a deposit on a box. Not the fault of the hosts but the cable company. Close spacing but doable. - whaler25

I thought the place was overpriced for the ease of camping there. The park is older which is not a concern to me except that there is a very limited amount of space to navigate vehicles into. We have a 20' trailer and our space was very tight. It was a lot of back and forth to get the rig properly situated. There was no avoiding putting our truck into another person's space during the parking process.
The people were pleasant in the front office. The requirement to put a deposit on a bathroom key is outdated. A code system for the restrooms would be so much easier for all concerned. To get our deposit back, we had to leave after the office was open. Again not a huge issue but more of an inconvience.
I just think that the price of the facility did not match the amenaties. - arteacher

Made reservation in Feb. 2016 for a pull-through full hook-up including 50 amp service. Was led to site 16. Plugged into 4 prong connector in the box and flipped the breakers on. To my surprise I only had 30 amp service. The owner came down and ask if my a/c was working. I responded that only 1 would work on 30 amp.Said if I wasn't happy I could get a refund and LEAVE. It was the 4th of July weekend and I ask him where I could go. His response "that's not my problem". On his park map, sites that shows 50 amp svc at 17 sites but those with true 50 amp svc on both legs are only 7. If you stay here and need true 50 amp make sure you get sites 35-41 or you are SOL. Also the traffic noise from hwy 395 is relentless 24/7 regardless where you are parked. - dls46

My rating of 4 is generous. The only plus is that the staff is friendly and helpful
Electricity is so poor our booster was on almost all the time; our site was narrow and not level; the pedestal is at the back so we had to use a 20' sewer hose, and the noise from highway 395 is very noticeable.
We definitely would not stay again. - RaySc

We recently stayed here for a night on our way to Yosemite National Park.
Very pleased with the park, easy to make reservations, received an email confirmation.
Park was easy to find, check-in was flawless. We needed a long space, as we didn't want to unhook for the night; and they gave us the perfect place. Site was fairly level.
They told us in advance we may hear some road noise, as it was close to the highway. It didn't seem very noisy at all.
While we were there, we took advantage of the swimming pool, very enjoyable way to cool off on a hot summer day.
The electric service worked fine; since we were only there for a night we didn't use the sewer or water or wi-fi.
Interior roads were easy to navigate.
A plus is that they have a gas station on-site, which made it easy for us to fill up the next morning.
Would definitely stay here again. - KTorline

I drove in and parked, went into the building asked about a lot for the night.
The receptionist was short and said you have to move your suppose to park over there your taking up customer parking. ( I was a customer)
He was rude and sassy. they had to escort me to my site on a golf cart. It was only 2 or 3 spaces away. Really need to learn some manners!!!
Other than that the place was top drawer!!!!!!! - SubVet SSBN619

Sites had concrete pads for wheel tracks & most needed repair. The pool & spa are under a roof but were disgustingly dirty. Water was brackish, birds love the rafters of the roof, ergo digested meals end up all over the furniture and ground, and there were small water beetles swimming laps in the pool. Other than those negatives, on site there are a gas station, small store, a fishing pond, and propane sales. Pleasant staff. - rvrrat520

We chose this park to test out our solar system and really liked it. The lake was completely dry, but the campground is quite pretty. There are very few trees, so not much shade or privacy, but we selected a spot that had a nice view and didn't directly face a neighbor.
There are no hookups here, so come prepared. Access to the park is easy, even for bigger rigs. The first loop seems a little newer and more suitable for larger rigs. The bathrooms and showers are clean and private. You are far from a major highway, so it's pretty quiet at night. Our only complaint was that the winds blew so hard the entire time we were there that we couldn't sit outside for long. The winds died down the day we left. I guess the area is known for their wind, so just be aware.
We had a very strong AT&T LTE signal, I didn't try Verizon.
We really enjoyed this park and hope to return when we can enjoy being outside. - Uno Mas

Very expensive! We had to pay the double price of $34 because we drove our tow car to the site instead of towing it. What difference does that make? Restroom and shower were already closed. Absolutely no service, but very beautiful sites and beautiful environment. - Denise9

Washoe Lake is our favorite campground in the Reno-Carson City area. Strictly dry camping but there is a dump/fill station at the entrance. Smell of sage is everywhere (nice). Each site has a ramada to provide shelter from the afternoon sun. Most sites are plenty long enough to accommodate large rigs. About half hour drive into Reno if you are into the casino scene. Went to Virginia City and spent a full day visiting the various shops and exploring the wild west grave yard (very interesting epitaphs). Will always stay at Washoe Lake when visiting this area. - CG Pilot

This is a great RV park but just not our style. The hosts are very pleasant and helpful, the grounds are in immaculate shape and the showers & laundry facilities are super clean.
Two trees at our site had branches that needed trimming back. After guiding us to our site, the host immediately came back with loppers and trimmed the branches. One day, the shower hot water was out. The host immediately went over and found the wind had blown out the water heater pilot light. Hot water was restored within 15 minutes.
The only downsides for us is that the sites are very close and tight. We could almost "pass the Grey Poupon" between the rigs next to us. Also, about 80% of the park is permanents or semi-permanents. All the rigs are in good condition and there aren't any eyesores but we're not fans of such parks. - LM&TinView

Price is based on weekly stay (50 amp). This place is a little gem. Grounds are immaculate. Interior roadways are almost new asphalt, sites are level cement. No grass, astro turf is used. Picnic table at every site. Individual sites are a little close to each other. Really nice owners. Owner takes you to your site. Electric was fine. Good water pressure. Elevation is approx 4,500 ft. Owners have a added a nice patio area with tables, awnings, and chairs and two large gas BBQs. I will be back. One negative - Very little shade. - GoPackGo

We stayed 11 days and had a rate discount to @$28. Very friendly couple live on site and keep this camp pristine. Liked the artificial turf to step out on. Liked the economical coin operated laundromat. Liked this quiet location. Great for walking dog on nearby BLM land or state park. A quick walk to town, Dollar store around the corner and major grocery/shopping just two miles north. We used the propane BBQ that is located in an inviting small garden/patio corner. Manager gave us a free night after some sewer hookup issues. We will always stay here when visiting family in Dayton. - Mtn hiker

Nice campground, well maintained. Sites are not level. Clean bathrooms, flush toilets, one pay shower. Lots of shade beneath tall pines. Nice hiking trail. Peaceful. Several pull-thru sites for longer trailers. No utilities, fresh water spigots spaced around. Dump station is $5 extra. Fire pit and picnic table at each site. Paved interior roads a little narrow with trees, we had no trouble with our 30' travel trailer, but we were careful. - trussman
Sep 2012 - $20.00
This county campground is nicely shaded by big ponderosa pines which is a welcome relief in 90 degree heat. Paved road and pull through sites, but very tight for big rigs. Well spaced sites. Most are not level but come with fire ring and table. It overlooks the valley and the newly opened freeway. Wind in the trees drown out most of the freeway noise. Take the Davis Creek exit off 395. You must pay an extra $1 per pet per night. Pay showers are very clean. No hookups. Dump for extra $5. Convenient to both Reno and Carson City. - Thunderboldt

Generally, for a County RV park, this is quite nice. Lots of trees, shade and clean facilities. Given its proximity to Reno, during the weekends, you get a bunch of locals that bring their contractor style generators. Much better during the week. Only a handful of sites are easy access for larger units. It is a challenge to get your unit level. Having been there in the past, it was much nicer for $11 than the $15+, add $ for each pet and $ for an extra vehicle, you might was well go somewhere else with full hookups. Not recommended for large trailers or motor homes. Good family type campground. - nvdesertrat

This is a nice little RV park. The price is reasonable compared to hotel rates here. Most of the spaces are not quite level so bring blocks or jacks. The shower facility is way better than I expected. It has a code on the main door and there are 4 individual bathrooms with shower, bench, sink, and toilet. My space had 20/30 amp hookup. The sewer hookup requires your hose end to screw into the opening. There was a cable TV connection but I didn't use it to rate it. The little store has a good selection of basics and is reasonably priced. - KofNV

Pricey for what you get. Tight spaces. Clean park. Check in process is rather inconvenient. Noticed another poster said wifi good. We found in nonexistent. Had to use my data. Also, sight was pull thru but not long enough to leave toad hooked up to 35' motorhome. - lb0456

This is basically a rv park in a paved parking lot with lots of trees. Most of the sites are narrow and a lot of the big rigs took up every inch. The park is next to the Carson Valley Inn Casino and its cafes however there is no direct and easy way to enter the casino or cafes. True, the check in involves setting up first in the site you were assigned when reserving the site then going into the hotel to the front desk to check in and get passwords, card keys, etc. Not a problem as we just went on in for dinner at Katie's once we got checked in. There was noise from the nearby very busy highway./ There is no security at all here so be aware of that. Anyone can walk in off the street or over from the large parking lots for the casino. The laundry is in the same building as the restrooms. Restrooms require a card key for entry. Shower stalls had locking doors which we prefer. The CATV system worked well as did the wifi. We would return here. Unsure of site number. - Bookwormonwheels

First of all let me say I like this campground. We usually stop by here two days heading home from a trip. But I must say their check in, while it appears to be simple, can become very convoluted. First of all you check-in at the hotel basement area. The gentleman at the counter has no idea what an RV is and could possibly not know what the RV park is but does not want to let you in until 3 o'clock until it's been cleaned (kind of like a hotel room) so you proceed to explain to him that there's no cleanup and if there is we got a bigger problem than me parking there. We might have to call hazmat (A California term may not even be available in Nevada), but anyway after I explain to him how RVs leave somewhat early and that sites might be available, then he concedes that yes if your spot is available you can park there, very frustrating when you're dealing with people that are not familiar with the RV lifestyle. We did finally get in and during all the confusion we forgot to show them our Good Sam discount card and did not get the discount and actually laughed and discovered it after we got down the road, did not dare try to call back and explain the situation; just said you know what that's the way it goes. We've stayed at this park several times over the years and always been pleased with how well kept up It is, it is tight maneuvering through the park so better to unhook out in the parking lot save yourself some grief and possibly a marriage!! But overall we will continue to stay there. Just enjoy the ride and don't sweat the minor stuff; it's a good place to camp. - monaco cruiser

The campground is across the road from the rest of the resort. We walked the entire campground for exercise after a long drive. The grounds are pretty but the sites are very close together with little to zero privacy. Most of the tent sites are right on top of each other. The restrooms and showers each are individual rooms. The restrooms are very basic. The showers are in serious need of updating. They have concrete floors, some wall damage and old defunct coin machines. The resort does have a lake front beach and is located in a beautiful location. It was very pleasant walking the campground, there is a light so it is easy to cross the highway to get to the main part of the resort and the lake. We had a nice breakfast in the resort restaurant. - 2togoNebraska

We unfortunately got caught without a reservation on a weekend. The name caught our attention, and having had experience with the resort itself felt that the $82 nightly charge was high, but considering it was at the resort we made reservations for two nights. As we arrived, we discovered the RV spots were across the street in a rustic campground, not the resort.
Note the reservation was taken by the off-site central booking agency Amamark; on arrival we found they had double booked us. The desk clerk,made us call the reservation number again to confirm we had made a reservation. Finally the other clerk, drove around and found an empty slot, the last one in the campground.
Worst camping experience ever, never could get the unit leveled. Note picture of picnic table which had been previously leveled by a big rock - totally unsafe. When we checked with adjacent camper as to why we couldn't get the cable to work we were told the front desk should have given you a converter box. When I walked back all the way down the hill, the desk clerk told me she had forgotten to tell us about that and had we called we could have saved us a walk down and back up the hill. So we couldn't watch TV that night. Tried for a good hour to connect with WiFi, and when asked the same clerk about it she told us, well you are in the trees.
We were so fed up that we checked out a day early. When asked about a credit because we didn't get the cable and WiFi we had asked for when we booked, we were told those were "free" services they gave us. - RetiredUSN

This RV park had excellent rating. I'm wondering who actually wrote the reviews. Staff was helpful. Made reservations online through the resort website. Glitch in program and I was put down for a tent site. I called a couple of weeks before the trip and verified my reservations stating that it was for a RV. They did find me a site that even for a short RV it was almost impossible to back into. They are so crammed together we couldn't put out our and people beside us had to pull in there awning. The worst part is the noise from the highway. With all windows closed and earplugs in you can still hear the cars 24 hrs a day. Not worth the money for retired people. - YellowstoneBison
