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.

Tips for other Campers:

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.

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.

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.
