9 Parks near Elko, Nevada
Aug 2016 - $29.00
Like the previous reviewer, our rating is 9 because this campground is great for what it's supposed to be which is an overnight stop. It's just off I-80 on the south side of Exit 314. (GPS can't find it but you can see it from the highway.) Road noise wasn't loud, never heard the train other reviewers mentioned. Site was easy in and out with lots of gravel. Did not have to unhook. Good wifi and TV. Very nice staff. Plenty of room to walk dog. Would definitely stay again. - all4pets

The gravel site required some leveling. Some tall trees provided shade. The park staff was friendly and helpful. Most of the sites are full time residents. There was a small bar next to the office with slots this being Nevada]. Park is 12 miles east of Elko. Good for an overnight. - waterwoman

I gave this park an 8 not because it is a great RV park, but because it is exactly what it claims to be, an RV park in the desert. Gravel with some lawn in between spaces. Some trees that were just leafing out in early April. Helpful staff that drove me around in a golf cart to pick a site. Very decent rate, a good value. I would certainly stay here again. - Jeff J

This recreation area is about 15 miles outside of Elko with good paved roads to the park. Make sure you go to the park website and get directions as your GPS might try to take you another way. There are two camping areas. One is 25 sites very near park headquarters. These sites are arranged in a loop on a cliff above the reservoir. They are high enough to have nice panoramic views. There are restrooms and showers available. Each site has a covered picnic table and a fire ring. Some sites have a wind shield, which should give you a hint of weather conditions at times. There are water taps in the campground that can be used for filling a holding tank. The sites, which are gravel, are well kept and attractive. Most are long and level. There are two sites that have electric for an additional $10 per night. This is the campground where we chose to stay. If you go around the reservoir on gravel roads, there are an additional 23 or so open sites. The sites are not well defined, so you just pick your area. Here there are only pit toilets. We had a pleasant stay, but did have some concerns for some campers playing music quite loudly, but it was not a problem at night. We saw no official presence during our stay. There are no trees so satellite is not a problem. We had strong, 4G, Verizon phone and data. We enjoyed our stay and would definitely stay here again. The campground closes mid-October. - TheJim

Did an overnight here on a cross-country trip. The desk person was efficient but not really very friendly. The park is obviously mostly long-term renters as there are numerous 100-gallon propane tanks alongside units and insulation skirting around most rigs. It is very quiet, almost too quiet...until a train blows it's horn several times over just across the way... all night long. Our site was slanted toward the street and required three leveling blocks under the front tires. The hookups worked well, the TV selections were good, and the internet solid. However, it just felt kind of creepy here and we were glad to get an early start the next morning and be gone. - K Bully

What an awful experience. We felt like we were camping by the road instead of in an RV Park. Would not recommend. We were in a 5th wheel. Loved Elko but would not come back to this park. - JackRobinson

We got in but not much room here for short-timers! All filled up with mobile homes and monthly people. Gravel isn't good and restrooms are trashed. Does have a nice restaurant and gift shop and is right in town. Very dark at night and scary. - BEENEVERYWHERE

OK for an overnight spot. Right along side Hwy 93 so get lots of road noise. People in office very nice so that's a plus. Hookups are located OK for your rig. Good signal for our sat dish. Nothing special but good and easy to get to. Would stay here again when passing thru. - Bluebird Bob

This would not be a bad park, if they would clean it up!! Weeds are 3-4 feet tall throughout the park, and overgrown around the hookups at the sites. Nearly all residents are living here, and most have junk laying around their sites. Many of the trees have died due to lack of water, and those that have survived need trimmed. Water pressure was fair, electricity OK, and sewer hookup was located well. Highway noise from I-80 is loud, but due to the run down rigs and poor park condition, one wouldn't want to sit outside much anyway. Very seedy characters were observed frequenting several of the mobile homes located within the park. Not sure what goes on here, but wouldn't want to leave anything of value outside unattended. The price is cheap, and we were only staying one night while traveling through, but we would Not stay here again. When registering, the office was noted to be filthy and littered with trash and junk. Manager kept apologizing for the "temporary situation," but as noted in previous reviews, this is Not a temporary situation! And to make matters worse, the office was also her residence, and she lived in that chaos! It's no wonder the park is in such disrepair, judging by how the management lives. - CA Travelers

We stayed here for 5 nights. Lots were level and had a grassy area and a beautiful pine tree next to us. Laundry was very clean and machines were in good repair. It was convenient to Elko as we were here for a graduation and family reunion. We definitely would stay here again. We just paid for one night as thought about moving but we liked the price and the park. Staff was helpful and accommodating. - User490

This is a nice, very remote campground at Wild Horse Reservoir. The road into the campground is paved. Roads in the loops and all sites are gravel, but not dusty. Some sites are level, and some are not. Only a few sites can accommodate big rigs. Most sites are back-ins, but there are also some pull-thru. Every site has a fire place and a picnic table. You get a good distance to the neighbours. It is dry camping only, but they have showers and restrooms available. There is also a dump station. The views are stunning and it is very quiet. Our Verizon aircard worked sometimes very slowly, sometime with LTE and sometimes not at all. - RVer from Oregon

Camped here and visited with friends. This park is all gravel and sets against the Humbolt River. There is a very active train in the drop off towards the river.... BUT I LOVE TRAINS, so the whistles did not bother me. They are improving this park with grassy areas at some sites (upgrade). Dog park is a gravel area only, no enclosure. - The Morgan's stopped here

The check-in process was the quickest of any RV park we've been to. It pays to make reservation at this park as all the pertinent information was printed on the registration when we check-in. A lot of construction going on very early in the morning. We were told we will lose power in 10 minutes and that got us moving very quickly. We will stay here again and look forward to checking out all the improvements they are making to the property. - gartail

The sites are very close together. Evidently they are making every other site a grass space between sites. Unfortunately, they started working a 6 am! Thankfully, we had planned on an early start - not quite that early! Laundry facility was clean with plenty of washers and dryers. $1.75 per wash and $0.25 for 6 minutes drying. Site is only gravel with no shade. Hopefully the remodeling of sites will include addition of trees. - Ms Winnie

This park was a complete disappointment. Out of 26 spaces at least 18 are long term rvs many of which are in horrible condition. The dog walk is a gate to a road and open field so littered with excrement to be unsafe for use. Good Sam needs to seriously evaluate this park and pull their rating. This was our next to the last stop on a 6000 mile trip and it was the worst park we stayed at. I don't think anyone checked the park regularly for upkeep and maintenance. No cable TV, but wires and boxes all over the ground. Not on our list to recommend to anyone passing through. - Jeremmy Wolfe

I hate to be so negative, but it's really hard to even consider this an RV park. Yes, there are about 20 full time units at the back of the motel/hotel/casino, but again...an RV Park? No!
Fortunately, we only had to stay overnight. First...the signage leading into the property is minimul if you have a large RV, such as my 40' with a toad.
Had to disconnect once I got onto the property, as I had no clue where the site were located.
Once onto the RV section, it's pretty much all dust. The spaces are just wide enough for the RV. No cable TV, which was a bummer. Woke up in the am with water spots all over the side of the RV, as their sprinklers come on pretty early...I was up at 5:30am, they came on earlier.
Where the power/water supply is located...well, it was a mud pit.
O'well, enough of this...There are certainly better places to find than this one. - 1imperial1

OK, first off, this isn't a luxury resort, but it doesn't pretend to be. Like most RV parks in Elko, it's about 50% residents, but they're a friendly bunch. We have a rather unusual motor home, a 1988 Wanderlodge, so it drew quite a bit of interest. I had about 5 people all trying to guide me into my slot! Then they said all the residents were getting together for barbecue & beer and we were more than welcome to join them. As I said, a friendly bunch!
Some sites are rather narrow, but there's grass around most of them (a rarity in Elko). They're all back-in, I think they all have full hookups, 30 amp only. All sites are level, some packed dirt, some concrete, all fairly well maintained. There's a dog walk area at the end, "puppy pickup" stations all around. As the name suggests, the park is behind the Gold Country Inn & Casino, but although on the main drag, it's surprisingly quiet. The casino itself is one of the smaller ones, but if you join their "players club" you get $10 of free play, which can be used there or at the (much larger) Red Lion Casino across the street. We spent a pleasant evening at the two casinos and came out a few dollars ahead.
You get access to the hotel seasonal pool. The bathrooms & showers are a bit basic, but clean. Good water pressure and quite roomy showers.
We only stayed the one night, passing through, but I'd stay there again, especially given the negative reviews on this site for other Elko parks. - RV-Roamer

Very nice neighborhood feel, with several long term residents. Very-well maintained. Beautiful grounds and access to the amenities at the Hilton Garden Inn next door. - mtnflyer

Nice, clean, fancy RV resort. Only stayed 1 night. Called the day of our arrival to reserve, was a $5 charge to c.c. (deducted from cost). Site was level side-to-side, but not fore-to aft. After leveling, was not able to back truck under 5th wheel. Carry blocks. They have agreement with nearby hotel for pool and spa. Would stay again. - samchev

This is a very classy RV Park with really nice sites in a nice environment. Easy in and out for all pull throughs and though some really long 5th wheels might have difficulty in a few back in sites most sites are right for just about everybody. They do have a 72-hour cancellation policy but if you don't cancel and only delay your arrival, there is no fee. That's reasonable for a 5-star rv park. There is a train some distance away but, heck, that's to be expected in rural areas. No big deal. We were only here one night but were happy we stayed here.
I give it a high rating and would definitely return here. - exportman

Nice campground among aspen trees and a creek; Well-spaced sites with privacy. Dry camping only, with vault toilets. No dump station. Each campsite has a picnic table, fire ring, and barbeque stand. A variety of sites among 3 loops. Some back-in, some pull through; several will accommodate bigger rigs. We had no trouble in our 30-ft travel trailer. Interior roads and sites are paved. Generators are OK 6am-10pm. Nice 4-mile round-trip hike up Thomas Canyon trail starts in the campground near site #31. Two campground hosts are helpful. No cell signal. Closed during the winter. Normal rate for single site is $17, half price for Golden Age and Senior Access Pass. - trussman
