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. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

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.

About the only game in town. Sites are pretty well separated, mostly level and, surprisingly have some shade. Utilities have been upgraded to include 50 amp service, which held up well. WiFi is quite good and work campers are really friendly. We camped at Ely KOA in a Travel Trailer.

I usually stay at Cave Lake State Park when in the area but was a bit warm this time. Highly recommend Cave Lake, and the drive up Success Loop -- Beautiful!

This is an older, mixed use KOA situated a few miles east of town. Like many KOAs today, it is vastly overpriced compared to price. This particular one has large mature trees with gravel sites. Unfortunately, my site was very uneven both port to starboard and bow to stern and had only one course of gravel with some bare dirt. Others seemed to be more adequate, so ask to choose your site if you get there early enough. There are 2 "dog-approved" runs - one with grass, one with sand and cedar trees making for interesting smells. Filled to capacity each night we were there in late July. Probably would stay there again given the few choices in the area for bigger rigs. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Great Basin National Park, some 70 miles east of town, is well worth at least drive out and car tour. Just the trip out on a very good road has fantastic views. If you are a day-hiker, there are some 3-4 mile RT hikes that (I am told) are nice, too.

Ely is in the middle of Nevada in a valley surrounded by Mtns. It was much prettier than I remembered from our last trip through. The KOA has dirt roads with very little grass and no hard surfaces. It is overpriced for where it is located and the amenities it has no pool or cable TV. Our site was large with a great view of the Mtns. It is the only game in town and will probably stay here again when going thru the area. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice KOA campground. Staff is pleasant and helpful. Roads and sites are gravel and spaces are adequate and typical of what you find in KOAs. There are a lot of permanent rigs but they are well kept and do not detract from the park. After checking out the Ely area if you want a camping site with hookups this is the best choice IMHO. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The Ward Coke ovens are worth the drive. The railroad museum in town is also worth the effort. The Nevada Northern Railway operates a sight seeing train every day. On the weekend the engine is a 2-8-0 Steam engine that is worth taking.
