This is a super clean campground with long level sites and beautiful views of the mountains and valley. We had planned this as a one night stop over but due to snow coming in we ended up staying four nights to explore the area and are glad we did. Great Basin is about an hour drive and a must do. The RR Museum is another must do as are the Charcoal Kilns if you have time. We also enjoyed hiking in the area and the access to great grocery stores and a huge Ace Hardwear. Easy access for big rigs - we are 63' and had no problems. Water has heat so no problem in cold weather. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Great little get a way. We travel with two littles and it was perfect having a playground. They also have horse corrals which was fun. Large gravel spots with picnic tables. No pets allowed to do their business on the grass great for us. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park was along our route and offered pullthroughs so we could overnight and not unhook our tow car. Check in was smooth with an escort to our site. All gravel, so dust in the air. The site had a slope so levelers were required. Not singling this park out, but I have often wondered why an RV park does not have every parking site dead level. Very slight road noise but quiet at night. Somewhat overpriced for the amenities offered. We would only stay again if there were no other options. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Super clean, super friendly and helpful owners, handy store. Sites were level gravel with grill, fire pit, table. I had just about given up on KOAs but tried it when passing thru and highly recommend. Plenty of places to eat and stock up in Ely and about an hour from Great Basin. Would absolutely stay again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Stayed in a 43' motorhome while traveling from Reno to Las Vegas on Hwy 50. Wanted to drive the "Pony Express Route" thru the desert. Easy on/off from Hwy 50. Check in was easy and staff was very friendly. Gravel dirt roads... very dusty. Small dog park with doggy bags provided. Lots of space to walk your dog in adjacent open fields. No cable, used our satellite. Some grassy manicured areas. This is not a destination park. Price is high. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Site was roomy. Surface is gravel. My only complaint would be that is was windy. This park is south of town on a rise which is windy. Easy to navigate around the park. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Making reservations at KOA's is always easy, especially to do online. Check-in process was very smooth, and the property was easy to find. Right off one of the highways in the area.

Interior roads were easy to navigate, and the pull-thru site was side enough for slides on both side,very level. Our particular space was all gravel (fine with us).

The utilities worked fine, used 50 amp service, water and sewer. All hook-ups worked. We did use the antenna, and were only able to get a couple channels.

Wi-fi didn't work great, but it unusual to find a property where it does work good. But got OK reception from my AT&T phone.

Park was extremely clean, well-maintained, including the restrooms and showers. Would definitely stay here again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Very nicely kept park. The sites are spotless and the grounds are well manicured. The staff are friendly and helpful. Wifi works very well. Even though it's on a main highway, traffic noise isn't an issue. This is a very nice park, just a bit pricey for us. However if you want to stay in Ely and don't want to stay at a casino RV lot, this is your choice. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Northern Nevada Railway Museum in Ely is a must-do. Both breakfast and lunch at the historic Hotel Nevada were good. Another fun place for lunch is the Economy Drug Store in downtown Ely. They have an old-fashioned soda fountain where you can build your own sandwich as well as get sodas, floats, sundaes, etc. If you're into mining history, there's lots of it in Ely. Check out the historic Ward townsite, then go on down the road to the Ward Charcoal Ovens.

Very friendly and helpful staff at check in, had lots of good area information and even gave each of our dogs a treat bag! Fenced pet area with half grass and a picnic table to observe. Good play area for the kids and many of the sites (ours included) have brand new fire pits. Huge store with plenty of necessities and souvenirs. We were only there for one night, but wish we could have stayed longer and enjoyed the area. TV was off-air from Ely, but we got plenty of good channels with our antennae. All other services worked great except for the WiFi which was a little more finicky. May work good on a laptop, but my iPhone kept losing signal. If they would have had a pool it would have been a home run! We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

It's as can be expected from a KOA. It's small, but had a grass patch to sit on. The campground was quiet and well maintained. The service was friendly. The cost was a little steep ($45) but I'm glad to have the security of an established campground, full services (if I choose to use them), and confirmed reservations. My only issue was the electrical panel cover on their shore power stanchion was loose and fell on my foot. I danced a little... We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Good for over night. Easy in and out and right off the highway, which is quiet at night. Spaces are gravel and fairly level. They do have two off-leash dog parks, which were well kept. Would stay again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Rate reflects power only hook up. I got to Ely after a 12" snowfall. A full row of spaces had been plowed out as well as all access lanes. Manager went above and beyond making sure I had all that I needed for the cold weather, including propane. The wind added to the cold, but she was right there making sure all was right, and checked highway conditions before I left in the morning. I've had great service when RV'ing the past four years but none better than at this park. We camped at Ely KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This is a nice KOA. They have two great dog parks that are fenced. They have trees and have done a good job of separating the more permanent residents from rvs. Very clean park with lovely mountain views. Ely is fun to visit with a great little train to check out and the Rennisance villiage. People who only stay a day are missing out. Phones and Satallite worked fine here.

For the area this is a nice older KOA. Spaces are ample for big rigs. Dog run has grass and is well done. There are some perm units but everything is neat and well cared for. Considering location this is a pleasant place for a few day stop over. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.
