I liked this park. It looks nice, has a good view and a good location just south of town. There are trees big enough to give shade, although they can be in the way in places. We were still able to get satellite TV. Our site was rather narrow and not level, but wide enough for slides. Not much room to sit outside. Very nice people in the office. Verizon cell and internet worked. I would stay here again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

A very nice KOA with most of the amenities we look for in a park. There are three rows of pull through sites for travelers with varying lengths and widths. Utilities were good, had no problem with leveling, and plenty of room for all 4 slides. Good reception for our Verizon MiFi and cellphone. Park roads are gravel which leads to dusty conditions when it is windy. Everyone in the office was friendly and helpful. Store has RV supplies, food stuffs, toys, gifts, etc. Propane available. Laundry room was clean and well maintained.

Park filled up every night we were here; so reservations definitely in order this time of year. Many use this park for riding their ATVs from park out onto various trails. We used it as base for exploring old mining/ghost towns. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Cellblock Steak House at the Jail House Casino was very good. Easy day trips out to Hamilton ghost town, Belmont Mill, and Ward Charcoal Ovens. There are many geocaches in the area that take you to historic town sites and cemeteries.

The park is located to the south of town - easy to get in and out of. Lots of full-timers, but also plenty of in-transit travelers with big motorhomes and 5th wheelers. Crappy AT&T cell service (1 or 2 bars of 3G), and the WiFi was nothing to brag about. No cable TV, but we picked up over a dozen digital TV stations. Would return if passing through. A bit of a hoof to dump trash if you're spot is in the middle of the site. Very nice office/store with lots of stuff to buy. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Had a very good dinner at the Jailhouse Restaurant downtown. If you can, stock up on groceries before reaching town, as the only "supermarket" in Ely (Ridley's) is pretty disgusting and high-priced. Very nice and new Love's gas stop is super easy to get gas and maneuver a big rig with toad around.

I stayed two nights in site 37 while passing through in a 27 foot motorhome with tow car. Wanted a base to visit Great Basin NP and though this campground is about an hours drive away it advertised shade and had good reviews. Like most parks in Nevada it is mostly gravel but unlike most parks it actually has big trees that provided shade. A couple sites at the end of the rows also had some grass. The park is open all year and extended stay folk are in a couple rows off to themselves on the highway side of park. Middle of park is two rows of full hookup pull through sites that all have some shade and are long enough and wide enough for big rigs with tow cars and trailers hauling ATVs. Back row was water and electric only for smaller RVs. This appears to be a popular ATV area and there are entrances to ATV trails on both sides of the park. However there are ATV rules and the park was quite quiet (I was there on a weekend). Very wide gravel roads made maneuvering inside park very easy. Two fenced dog areas -- one that actually had some irrigated grass instead of just gravel! Also many trails just outside of park for dog walking -- ask at the office. Also has tent camping area and cabins. Wifi was okay -- not great. Verizon was good but slow. Both worked best in early morning and late at night. Water and electric worked well except just when I arrived the power in the entire Ely area went out about 30-40 minutes. Didn't use sewer hookup -- well set up dump site. Didn't use restrooms. Price reflects KOA discount. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

As they charge more I expect more from KOA. Ely did not deliver. Had to level our trailer side to side. This normally does not rate a mention but the park is on a flat and periodic dressing of the parking surface seems a given. The utilities were OK although the park's drain had a fitting that just slipped in to the pipe. Many parks demand a tight seal, here the park was at fault. Three shower stalls and one was out of order. The one I used had a serious leak at the head fitting that sprayed water into the dressing area. There was always water on the floor outside the dressing area. The office staff was efficient and knowledgeable but were emplyees just doing their job. Overall it is overpriced. We camped at Ely KOA in a Travel Trailer.

Tips for other Campers:

The Nevada Northern Railroad is a wonderful excursion railroad. The train ride is nice and you get a tour of the repair shops and the museum. This is one of the most extensive railroad history experieces in the country. Ely has its share of casinos, restaurants, a couple of medium sized groceries, a golf course, and the unique service business that is legal in Nevada.

Just when we were beginning to believe KOAs we're going downhill, we come upon this gem. Workers were super friendly and welcoming. The park is immaculate, with very spacious roads and sites. Most sites have beautiful shade trees. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Better than average KOA. Our site was fairly level. Utilities functioned fine. Wi-fi was just ok, sometimes slowed down or completely dropped off. Nice dog park area. Very friendly, helpful personnel. Nice shade trees but a little trimming back of branches would be in order. Not crazy about KOA prices, but this park seemed to be the best option in the area. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice place to stay. Clean with good utilities but wifi is iffy. If you park on the outer loop you will have a great view. Park is all gravel and dirt so pretty dusty. Trees provide some shade and satellite is available most areas of park. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

Nice park, on Hwy 93 and convenient to town and surrounding area. Thought the price was high for the services it offers. People were nice and informative, park was quiet. The tent camping area was very nice. We camped at Ely KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is clean and we'll kept, with a friendly staff and nice views of the surrounding mountains. The sites are very basic and close together, but pleasant enough. A little pricey, as KOAs are. Lots of very loud birds in the morning. Town of Ely was not a place I'd make a point to come back to. A little too gritty for my taste. We camped at Ely KOA in a Travel Trailer.

As KOA's go this was one of the nicest. The front desk was extremely friendly and helpful. Our site on the front row had a nice view of surrounding mountains. There was only one restroom for the entire park but it was clean and well kept. We camped at Ely KOA in a Motorhome.

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.
