Dry camping on BLM land, lake view, pit toilets & covered patio/picnic area on site. Sites gravel and somewhat level, some need a little maneuvering to get near level. Lake is slowly dying, heavy mineral content with increasing drought levels have killed the fishing. We camped at Walker Lake - Sportsman's Beach Recreation Site in a Motorhome.
This is a BLM campground along the shores of Walker Lake just north of the town of Hawthorne. Not much to offer here. No potable water and no hook-ups of any sort. No flush toilets and no showers. The women's outhouse was disgustingly dirty. The pads are broken asphalt and gravel. Nice views of the lake and easy access off the highway, other than that and the very inexpensive fees, there's not much to write home about. Looks like the sort of place that would be popular with the local crowd in the summer for fishing, boating, jet-skiing, etc. Our cost reflects the fact that this is a Federal campground and we have the Senior Access pass. Regular fee would be $6. We camped at Walker Lake - Sportsman's Beach Recreation Site in a Travel Trailer.
