5 Parks near Carson City, Nevada
Aug 2014 - $38.00
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

Excellent location, could not ask for a better host. When we got here I asked for a shady spot, his reaction was "let me lock up, and we will walk around till you find what you want." Only negatives are the small sites and iffy Wi-Fi. As the host said, when this park was built there weren't any 40' rigs. Sites are a little unlevel but a board fixes all. Very quiet even though in town as the name states. I would stay here again. Rate reflects Good Sam discount. - Jack&Wanda

We were allowed to pick our own site. We ended with a shaded site closed to to the office and entrance. Sites were wide and level. Laundry room was big, 2 dollar for washing and two quarters will do the drying. Showers were clean; however, one of the three showers in the gents room was not working. - Roland Jordan

This park was perfectly located for our needs. We were spending a couple of weeks in Lake Tahoe with friends and had no need to take the RV up there so we stored it here. Then when we were ready to continue our trip, we hooked up in one of their sites to cool off our fridge, hit the nearby Costco, Walmart and Trader Joe's and we were on our way. The sites are nothing special, some quite angled but full hookups and access to bathrooms and showers if needed.
The staff we encountered were friendly and accommodative. The price reflects the location on Highway 395 in Carson City. We paid $38 for our night hooked up and $65 for storage which would have allowed us to store up to 1 month. - Coopsecondact

Right on Hwy 395 so road noise. Trees on the sites and many need to be trimmed so as not to hit the RV, but it's not a big problem currently. Very clean park. Paved roads, dirt/gravel sites that are normal size. Our site was pull-through and had full hookups with 50 amps. The park has a small store with a few grocery items, ice cream, candy, ice, RV supplies. There is free Wi-Fi and cable, they sell propane. Staff is very friendly and they guide you to your site and help you park. It has a pool and tennis court. The bathrooms are exceptionally clean. The showers are very large. It is right across the street from a casino that is very modern and has a bar and restaurant. The breakfast is good and reasonably priced. The park is right next to Costco and is RV friendly for getting gas (easy in and out for the big rigs or those pulling trailers). We'd stay there again. - Jjtrips

We arrived just after 3 PM and the office was closed. There was a person there to show us to a campsite but he was not very sharp. The campground was clean and neat. The water and power were fine. We did not try the wifi or cable. When we paid the next morning the person at the desk was helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. - 2WArvers

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

I like this park but, I am a little disappointed on the fact that they let all the landscaping turn to weeds and dandy lions that they were putting in two years ago waking me up at 6 AM in the morning. The park is very tight getting in and out with big rigs I saved a guy from Florida probably $20,000 had I not started banging on his motorhome before he clipped the restroom about midway prior to leaving the park. Be careful on your departure swing out keep them wheels straight until you are clear to cut in if you have room otherwise get a couple of spotters a lot of vehicles get damaged in this park. I think the value of this park is a little high considering they are part of the casino. I probably will try to look for other options but can't guarantee it just seems like everything's a little bit run down, used and abused. - monaco cruiser

Paved level full hookup sites. Some road noise from I-580 but not bad. Nice, reasonably priced laundry, 8 each commercial but household size washers & dryers. We would stay here again if in area. Staff very friendly and helpful. - ebaldy

This is a Small RV Park (45 sites) behind the Gold Dust Casino - near Highway 580 - but not too bad for noise. If you are sensitive to traffic noise bring ear plugs. Check-in was a little confusing as we weren't sure where to go to check in. It turns out you should pull up to the hotel check-in area and go inside. Or if they give you a site number when you make a reservation - park and walk over to check in.
Wifi and TV were good. Bathrooms were clean & required a code. The sites were a good size. We chose a back in. The pull-through sites are bigger. All sites have some grass by them and a picnic table. The sites are all paved and spaced well.
We chose a site as far away from the highway as possible - just because of the possibility of traffic noise.
Originally we were going to stay at the RV Park that is near Costco which was recommended by a fellow camper when we were in Bishop, CA. But our gut told us to try this smaller one at this Casino (never stayed at a casino before.) We were really glad once we saw the other place because the other one is sandwiched between 2 busy highways and the sites look really small and appear to be dirt.
We would stay here at the Gold Dust again. - NiMo

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 beautiful state park set in an open desert environment. There are no hook-ups, but water is available for filling your fresh water tank and there are flush toilets and showers available as well as a dump station. The view from our campsite out across the fragrant sagebrush and beyond to the mountains in the distance was beautiful. There is very little shade available so this campground would be quite hot in the summer. The bathrooms and showers are clean, but very basic. The water in the shower was not very warm and you have to keep pushing a button to keep the stream of water flowing - an awkward arrangement. It was a very quiet, pretty and peaceful place to camp while we explored the surrounding area. Don't miss Virginia City, an easy day trip from the park. We'd definitely stay here again! - BruceandKathyWA
