Always a very nice well-kept RV park to stay at, The only complaint I have is it is very tight. Luckily, there was no back ends in behind us so I actually backed out of my spot rather than driving forward. I could have never made it forward without asking people to move their vehicles this is the only drawback of this park. We had a 50 amp pull through that they had messed up on their booking so they gave it to us at a 30 amp price. Very generous of them. I did make up the difference in pay at the casino so we figured we're about even. I would stay here again. - monaco cruiser
This is an older park that was not designed for the wider and longer RV's of today. Our 38 foot RV was a tight fit on the paved slab. The park is well kept, clean, and well managed. Upon check in, the tree at our site required trimming in order for us to put our patio awning out. After only 5 minutes, the maintenance man arrived and trimmed it for us! The streets are very narrow, and require diligent driving to avoid problems! We saw a large motor home jackknife his towed vehicle when attempting to negotiate a tight turn out of the park. He damaged his rig, but could have easily been avoided by hooking up his tow after pulling out of the site. Check in is accomplished at the casino hotel desk adjacent to the park. Hotel staff were extremely friendly and helpful. Noise from the casino parking lot and nearby US 395 are not an issue at all. Very quiet and safe at night. Showers were old, but clean and functioned well. Each stall had it's own locking door, so safety and privacy were not an issue. Water pressure and electricity were excellent. There is a large pet area. The park is in the heart of Minden, close to shopping and restaurants. We would definitely stay here again when visiting the Carson Valley area. - CA Travelers
We have stayed at the Carson Valley Inn before but it has been a couple of years. Overall it is a nice park. However, the sites are fairly short. We stayed here in a 20' travel trailer and had a difficult time fitting our Toyota Tacoma in the site with us (had to park sideways). However, all the hook ups and Wi-Fi worked just fine and the park and facilities are well kept. Guests of the park have full access to the adjacent hotel amenities including a VERY nice indoor pool and Jacuzzis. Also, the casino restaurant has great food at unbelievably low prices. Overall, you can't really go wrong with this this place! - campingwithourboys
This is a new Elks lodge and features 5 electric-only back-in sites at the front of their parking lot near the street entrance. Self-registration. AC voltage was good. The grounds were exceptionally clean and well manicured. If needed, water can be obtained from a lawn spigot near the edge of the RV parking sites, but no sewer dump is available here. There's some noise from Kimmerling Rd. out front during the day (which is surprisingly busy) but it's quiet at night. Verizon had a strong signal and AT&T medium signal strength here. This is a good place for a quick overnight stop and we'll definitely stay again.
NOTE: For the use of current Elks members only. - Gyropilot
We had driven past this park many times and seen it very full. We decided to try it out and see if it was really that much fun! There is no faulting the facility. Sites have close to level concrete runner pads that require little or no leveling. The park was spotlessly clean and had a handy store and very friendly and helpful employees. While we were there off season, there is a good looking pool (closed in winter), dog runs, rec rooms, etc. Would be a great park to turn the kids loose in. The only bad is the proximity to highway 395. The park sits by a section of 65MPH+ road and the mountains on the far side of the road only seem to make things louder by reflecting the noise. This is one of the noisiest campgrounds we ever stayed in. I imagine summer would be better if you were camping with your AC running to mask the noise but in cooler weather, it's bad. Trucks would hit the 'rumble strips' on the edge of the road and make a racket. I'd love to give this a 10 rating but can't. There is little shade that would make AC imperative in the summer. - User3674
The only reason I stay at this park is because it takes Passport America and there are times in the past that I had to use it because of convenience but no more. The park is noisy, has no shade and the wind blows through there at minimum of 40 miles an hour. Look,they do have some very nice amenities but not enough for me to stay there. Like I said if it was not for Passport America I would not stay there, there are so many other options in the area. - monaco cruiser
Occasionally we have to stay here but i only stay here when PA discount applies (starts Oct. 1st). This time we got the site right along Hwy 395, traffic noise was an issue along with the dust from the afternoon winds. The cable is free but a office person has to hook it up to the back of your TV with a refundable 75 dollar deposit (we passed on this). I will try to stay in other parks during the summer, but when the PA discount is in effect we will stay here. - monaco cruiser
