23 Parks near Carson City, Nevada
Jul 2016 - $35.00
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 The requirement to put a deposit on a bathroom key is outdated.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 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

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

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 park is convenient to town Carson City, Virginia City and surrounding areas. The food is reasonably priced and not bad for casino food. But the campground is very tight if you have a big rig over 38 feet. You could have problems leaving when you want to leave. We had to zigzag through the dump station area and I don't think I would've made it out without clipping the guy next to me's pick up truck for his fifth wheel. Another thing that gripes me about these parks is their sprinklers are set so that the water sprays your motorhome and is so hard it will permanently stain your motorhome if you don't get on it real quick and get it taken care of. Overall I will probably stay here again if the weather is hot. If the weather is cool in the fall or early winter I will probably boondock somewhere in passing through. - monaco cruiser

This park is a glorified parking lot. Site was level with grass and picnic table between each site. Sites are so close you can't put out your awning. Restrooms are clean with hot water. To use the pool, you must go to the other side of the complex and use the hotel pool. Maintenance staff friendly and helpful (we had an electrical issue) but the check-in staff was not. To get a physical receipt, you must go to the front desk to ckeck out. They also all a $50 hold to your credit card for incidentals (what incidentals will I have at this RV park??) - Ms Winnie

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

It's not bad or horrible, but it is little more than a glorified parking lot with gravel yards that are uncomfortable to walk on and barely adequate pads to park your RV on. The pads aren't "pads" at all in the normal sense - they only cemented the tire tracks and left the center portion open, which they filled with the same gravel I mentioned earlier. That would be fine, I suppose, except that the "tire pads" are so far apart that the feet for my front jacks straddle the inside edge of the cement by exactly half - enough to have done some real damage if I hadn't noticed and put the full weight of the rig on them.
The noise from Hwy 395 is quite loud and there are a ton of full-timers who clearly have more important things to do than maintain their spaces. There is zero aesthetic appeal to any part of this "resort" - it's really just a flat place to park your RV.
At $40 a night with ZERO refunds for any reason, I expect a little more for my money. - Wryly Blithe

Others say it very well. Our semi concrete pad was broken up as well and roads are narrow getting in and all of the site. Fuel was very fair priced but store was very expensive ($2.50 for a one liter of soda / pop as example). Needs owner maintenance as rules for resident site maintenance. - AZSwede

Sites are cement for the wheels of your RV, which are pretty level. Surrounded by gravel which works although not very appealing. Lots of full timers, with weeds growing up through the tongues of their trailers and all through the sight. Obviously site maintenance is minimal. Pool area is under a cover with lots of birds / nests to help keep the pool water questionable. Dog pens are dirt and big enough for your dog to relieve itself but not large enough for play time. There is fuel on site as well as a small store. Check in was very efficient and you are led to your sight by an employee. With some additional park maintenance and some expansion of dog parks, this could be a nice destination park. - User3492

This is a small, clean park. Very friendly, helpful manager. The park is easy in/out from Hwy 50. Paved roads and concrete pads, no grass but have artificial turf and sand. Sites are very close. Utilities are fine. Fenced in dog park all sand. Walked our dog across the street at local Casino that has grass. We stayed 2 nights to visit Virginia City which is about 8 miles away. We stayed here in a 43' motorhome on site #30 which is a double front to front facing site right at the entrance. We had the site all to ourselves which made easy pulling and exit. We would consider staying here again if in the area. - RTM

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

Well first off, remember this is the only RV park in Virginia City. SO if you are going, this is it. On arrival we found another trailer in our reserved spot. RV Park people wanted to move us. The sites are not all the same, and some are very difficult to get into and to level on. So we held out for our reserved site. We had to plug into another site while the other people moved out 6 hours later. - Gtwood65

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

Good location with city pool across street and easy walk downtown. Only park in town. Very basic site. Good and clean shower. Good sized store/office. - Pierce

Very nice smaller campground next to the casino. Doggy friendly, allowing small pens and plenty of shade and grass. Nice area to park while you wait for space available. You pull up to the kiosk and call into the main lobby for site number. Very nice and friendly. Restrooms and laundry are very clean and nice.
The park is small and a bit tight to navigate, but is doable. Recommend unhitching a tow car. Pull thrus look a bit short for longer motorhomes (>34ft) or fifth wheels. We would definitely stay again. - ButterflyDogs

My first review of this park. This web site is usually dead on but not this time. We had a back-in at the rear of the park. Very, very tight. Just a blacktop parking lot. The proverbial pass the Poupon with your neighbor. Slides very close to neighbor. Other sites may be OK but we could not wait to get out of there. Terrific park ten miles down the road. If you want easy access to a casino it might be the place for you. Did not go to casino. Would not go back. - pjstewart51

We stay here every year for about 3 total weeks on and off. We just love the area and consider it home away from home in summer. So pretty looking to west with view of Sierra's. Sites all have lawn and asphalt for parking rigs. Full hook ups with cable and good wi fi. Access to pool and Jacuzzis as well as exercise gym in adjoining hotel. Security patrols area and we have never had any negative activity in the park. - signaloil

This park wins the location award of those in the Lake Tahoe area. After touring some of the other local parks, this one seemed to offer the best of everything. Yes. The sights seem rather close together. Our site 159 is a pull through which seemed to offer more space between sites than many of the others. Bathrooms and showers were clean, maybe a bit dated, but nice. Park is located on HWY 50, a rather busy street, with a traffic light provided for safe crossing to the beach. We enjoyed our stay. Would probably stay again. - R&M

Check in was horrendous. Monday afternoon and RVS were backed up to the highway. When I got inside the office there were 7 people in front of me. There was only one clerk and he was doing a fine job with 4 days of experience. The first site that I was assigned had a vehicle parked in it. I went back to the office and luckily got another site. The park was recently taken over by Aramark and obviously needs some organization and training. Lots of highway noise as well. There are NO flat, straight areas to disconnect the toad. Signage to the RV resort said "turn left", when in fact the RV resort was on the right. I was told by a camp host that they've been trying to get the sign changed for years. - User3492

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
