The park was full which surprised us, lots of full timers. There sites where just okay giving the whole park a run down feeling. All gravel park with little or no grass. The utilities worked fine and access was easy with wide roads. It is okay for an overnight stay just lacking in charm. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

The interior roads are wide gravel and easy to get around. The sites are gravel and most are long enough to stay connected. There are trees. The staff is friendly. The park is well maintained. there are long term campers but they are located tougher and are well maintained. The sites are about average space between. It is a good spot to use as base to see the area. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Our site was on the end of the row, what a view! We were close to the dog park and our site had some shade. The staff was friendly and helpful! Roads and sites were gravel. The end site had some grass. Overall, it was a very good campground for our 2 nites. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Rate includes a 10% KOA discount. Site was pull-thru, gravel, level with FHU and 50 amp electric. The park WiFi was weak. We had good Verizon voice and data reception. We could not get DishTV satellite reception because of trees. The laundry facility was clean and inexpensive. This was an overnight stay, but it would have been pleasant for a longer stay. We would stay here again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

mostly dirt and packed gravel for entire park but dog park was grass covered. staff at checkin were exceptionally kind and polite and were all very service oriented. park was very full and no vacancies anywhere close so we expected abrupt service. Only park close to nearby National Park and still an hour away. when traveling in this area, keep your tank full as fuel stops may be many hours between. some steep grades in the area so beware and make extra plan for time and fuel. Park actually allowed fires in their pits as long as wind condition permits, since this was the height of dry season and fires were cropping up everywhere around us we were shocked they allowed them. Good park, great staff. We camped at Ely KOA in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed one night at the Ely KOA. I was surprised how nice the Ely, Nevada area is and the KOA is an attractive campground. It was pretty much filled to capacity and we were given a level site. Sites are separated by wooden fencing. There's groceries and a gift shop in the office building. We would stay here again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Overall Rating:

This is a quiet, above-average KOA. We stayed overnight while driving through on U.S. 6/50. The park is conveniently located next to the highway on the eastern edge of town, but far enough away that there is not a lot of highway noise. The pull-through sites are pretty roomy width-wise, and long enough to keep a 30-foot travel trailer hitched to the tow vehicle. There is some slope to most of the sites that will likely require some leveling work. Everything is gravel, no pavement. On my one visit to the bathroom facilities (which are part of the office complex at one end of the park, which may require a long walk for those camped at the opposite end) they were decent but in need of cleaning. There are quite a few long-term residents at this park, probably more than 50 percent on most nights. We had a pretty good pizza and salad delivered to the rig. We camped at Ely KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Great Basin National Park is 60 miles one-way; a beautiful drive and well worth it to see a spectacular park. Pizza place in town delivers to the park.

Overpriced as most KOA's are. Mostly dirt and gravel. Two very small dog areas. Lots of dust, but this IS the desert. Not much to choose from in this area. OK for one night. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Gravel interior roads and at sites, some sites with grass areas. Leveling required. Well established and trimmed shade trees and newly planted small pines. Convenient hookups and site width good. Adjacent to highway but noise minimal. Two dog play areas and trash receptacles at edges of the well maintained park. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Like Oriental food? On Great Basin Blvd (US93) near Aultman (US50) the Twin Wok is terrific. They even have a breakfast and lunch buffet, but menu orders for evenings. Excellent prices and generous quantities. Visit the old Downtown Historic Hotel Nevada, watch for numerous murals on the walls throughout town and don't pass up the Northern Nevada Railway museum and steam engine train rides.

This is very basic, but very pretty and peaceful park right on the outskirts of Ely (about 8 min drive to downtown, since Ely is very small). Located in the valley between snowcapped mountains. Front desk staff is very helpful and friendly. Our site was long and wide enough to park our 5th wheel and 2 large vehicles. Shared bathrooms and showers, but spotless and cleaned regularly. There is no clubhouse per se, just the reception area and a small store where you can buy bare necessities and local souvenirs. WiFi for the first couple of days was non existent, but once connected, was more than enough to stream movies, even with full occupancy of the park on Memorial Day weekend. Despite full occupancy that weekend, the park was very quiet and pleasant. We camped for 7 nights and enjoyed it very much - will definitely stay again when in Ely!! We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Check out Nothern Nevada Railroad Museum, weekend train ride and White Pine county museums! For veggie lovers, All Aboard Cafe and Inn offers fresh salad bar and soup combo among their others menu items. Groceries option are limited and somewhat expensive - we found relatively good selection of fresh fruits and vegetables in Ridley's (worth to sign up for free membership to save up)

This RV park was a nice surprise. Very clean. Sites have a lovely view of the mountains. Lots of space, rustic. It's all gravel but the sites are level. The woman in the office was very nice. She asked if we wanted to check out any other sites before unhooking just in case there was one we liked better which I though was very kind of her. Definitely would stay again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.
