This is a small RV park connected with a small hotel and casino. Nothing fancy, but it is a decent stop for the night. The only gripe I have is the road that runs right alongside the RV sites is gravel and gets quite a bit of traffic... making for a LOT of dust.

There are pull-though sites in the middle (8 or 9) and small back-in sites on either side of that. Not particularly level.

You check in at the front desk of the hotel, after you pick a site (no reservations, first come - first gets for sites). We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

When you are in the middle of Nevada, Ely is one of the few stops. Not a destination area from my perspective, but there are gas stations, some restaurants, and some small casinos.

This was a perfectly fine park to overnight in. You find a spot and park, then register in the hotel, first-come, first-served. We had a large pull-through site with good satellite reception and amazing antenna channel selection for the locale.

The lot is dirt and I imagine could get muddy easily in heavy rain. There is some road noise, but it slowed down considerably overnight.

The Mexican restaurant in the hotel/casino was pretty good and they do give complimentary margaritas and pool access to RV guest.

The front desk staff person was very friendly and accommodating.

Would stay here again if passing through. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

Ely is not really a destination, but it is a good overnight stop. There were a few gas stations there with very easy RV access, and we saw a site where a new Love's station is being built.

Not a resort. An RV parking lot with full hookups, beside a nice clean hotel. All amenities are inside the hotel. They have a very nice hot, spacious and clean pool and spa. Good restaurant, restrooms inside, no showers. Great value. We drove around and checked other parks out. We will only stay here, unless we wilderness camp. 7 pull throughs, circle around with back-ins, chat driveway and minimal grass and trees. First come, first serve. People come and go every day, it is a great stop over. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

A good option for an overnight stay. On the US 93 southbound into town. Pick your spot, park and go into the Casino entrance. Pick up your free popcorn and margaritas.

This time of the year there is some snow melt and the parking lot is muddy in placed. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Travel Trailer.

Good for an overnight stay as all other parks the area were full. No bathrooms or showers available, but we did have access to the pool. Two free margaritas were included in the price. What a deal! Close sites and not really all that appealing, but a cheap overnight stop. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

Needed a stop for 2 nights. Pull thru w/full hookups, 50 amp, satellite friendly. Site was pretty level. Location on US 93, lots of truck traffic but no disturbing noise. Only 5 minute walk to hospital. Plenty of rv friendly gas stations on 93 and 50. Only one real grocery, Ridley's but it is well stocked. Not a vacation resort but for price and hookups very good.

Campround did not have bath house. Restrooms in hotel but no shower facility. Casino and restaurant have stale cigarette % alcohol odor but we don't frequent casinos. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

I was sleepy and had to stop. Just there for the night. Not much--a semi-level spot that I was in. Noisy because of the casino being close. Don't think I would go back. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

This is definitely a stop over for the night. Several pull-thru's but mostly back-ins. All gravel, sewer connection is about 6" above the ground. It's attached to a casino which is very smoky. The restaurant is mainly Mexican food and very average. I would not stop here again unless I absolutely had to. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

We overnighted enroute to Vegas and the Grand Canyon this past March.

If you are going to stay for more than one night I would certainly give one of the more traditional RV parks in the area a look but if you are just looking for an overnight stop I would absolutely recommend the Prospector Inn and Casino. We paid $15 a night for full hook-ups including cable. It also included the use of the indoor pool and hot tub which was part of their hotel. Wi-Fi was pretty spotty in our site but was solid in the hotel (ie., lobby, pool area and restaurant). The restaurant (Mexican) was also pretty decent as well. They have a 1/2 dozen or so larger pull-through sites in the middle of the dirt lot with the rest being along the east side next to the Hwy. We had one of the sites next to the Hwy and honestly didn't hear much during the night.

We had originally booked to stay at a different RV Park but at almost $45 for just a single late night stop we thought we would give the Casino a try. We admittedly went into it with pretty low expectations but were very pleasantly surprised and would definitely stay there again. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

Not much to see and do in the town but we would recommend checking out the Railway Museum if you had the time. We didn't know that the guy who runs it was the train guy from the "American Restoration" TV show and we're pleasantly surprised as we had seen a few episodes with him in it.

Popular bare bones with full hookups, a stopover for our Canadian snowbirders. Fills up most days quickly. Restaurant in hotel/casino is fair to good Mexican cuisine. No garbage cans in RV lot. Good for overnighting. Staff in registration are very friendly. Not much of a casino if you're into investing in the local economy, though. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

1 hour drive to Great Basin NP, not a real thrilling park as far as NP's go.

A little hard to get into the park but doable. As the sign says, find an open spot, park, then go to the hotel desk to register. Saturday is busy, park fills up by late afternoon. Restaurant in small casino is very good and has large portions. The special on Saturday night is steak and lobster. Good price and great meal. This park is a great priced overnight stop on your way across Nevada. We would stay here again. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a small bare bones RV park connected to a casino and hotel. You can have access to the indoor swimming pool, which is not real big, but looked real nice. There is a restaurant in the casino, but we did not eat at it. This park is mainly used as a overnight stop, while traveling Highway 50 (the loneliest highway in the U.S.) across Nevada. Ely is really a cute little city. Try the drug store in town that has a soda fountain. Yes, we will stay here again. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

The price and convenient location earned it a 5. Stayed here for one night, I would stay here again if I was traveling through and the timing was right. Easy in and out. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

Decent, inexpensive place for an overnight or two. Roads and sites are gravel. Pool and hot tub available at the hotel. Free margarita coupon upon check in. Full 4G Verizon signal. Convenient to downtown Ely. The road was fairly noisy during the day but quieted down at night. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

Great price for a night with water, sewer, elect. No showers, but restrooms in casino are nice. Food and service were great! Dirt sites with room. Grass in front of casino good for pets. We would return. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.
