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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

It is what it is. There are no permanents in the park. It does get busy but it is not full at 8:30 pm probably because they gave up on having permanents. We are pleased we stayed for a one nite stopover on our way thru Nevada. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

Park is part of a casino. It is dirt/gravel with some grass between some of the sites. They have only a few pull thru's that can accommodate a big rig and no reservations. It is a OK overnight especially if you want to go to the casino. The food at the casino is good and reasonable. All the services worked fine. If we were in early enough to get a spot, we would stay again. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

Sites were close together and trashy but room for our slides. Lots of weeds and trees were not trimmed. First come, first serve. Price was good for overnight. Had to go into the hotel/casino for the restrooms which were not that clean and no showers. There was a grassy area behind the hotel that you could walk your dog, and they provided bags and waste container. The restaurant was average, a bit old looking and the service was slow. Since the park sits by Hwy 93, it really was not that noisy. For the price, not that bad and we were glad to be on our way the next morning. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

This is truly a dirt spot on the RV Hi-way of life. $15 a night. First come, fist served. No reservations. Very limited spots. Small casino, nice and clean. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

Nothing fancy. Next to the highway. The price is nothing fancy either. Hotel restaurant is good. Portions are HUGE! WIFi worked well, even far from the building. Staff was friendly. It is what it is, and the price reflects what it is. For a night or 2 stop over, we would do it again. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

Convenient to the Northern Nevada Railway - we rode our bikes to the Station. The WiFi is a little slow, but mostly steady. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Motorhome.

This is a small, basic campground owned by the Prospector hotel. There are 22 sites of which 6 are pull-thrus. The interior road and sites are on packed dirt with some gravel. There is a small patch of grass (mostly weeds and dirt) separating each site. All sites have FHU with 20/30/50 amp electrical service. The electrical voltage was good. There is neither cable nor Wi-Fi within the campground. There was reception for both Verizon’s air card and cell phone. The hotel allows you to use the indoor pool and spa along with their exercise room. Laundry room was also available but we did not check it out. This is a very basic campground but it is priced right. Diesel at the Texaco station (across the street) was $0.12 higher then other fueling stations. The Sinclair (now Chevron) station on the Indian Reservation was also higher then those within town. There were a number of long term residents using this park. There was little road noise at night but some of the long term residents did leave the park very early in the morning. This campground does fill up early. We would stay at this campground again if we were in the area. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

You couldn't beat the price and it wasn't a bad experience. We stayed here two days. As the other reviewers say, it isn't fancy, but we stayed in the row back from the road and it was quiet at night. The 2 free margaritas were nice. If I were in Ely, I'd stay again. The train museum is worth the price and close. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.

For an no frills overnight stop, this is fine. Some sites back up to a very busy road and near an area where big rigs are pulling in and out. The gravel lot is next door to the Prospector Casino hotel. You pick a site and then go check in there. The cable only works in 18-22 the desk clerk said: that after we set up in 15. The RV antennae does pick up local channels. The two free margaritas were a nice treat (to get you in the casino). Suggest arriving early in the afternoon as it does fill up. Can't beat the price for FHU. No RR (restroom) facilities or showers but have use of the hotel pool I understand but have not checked out. We stayed 2 nights to catch up on washing clothes etc. We would stop again if passing through the area. We camped at Prospector Hotel and Casino in a Fifth Wheel.
