Overall, this is a good park when traveling on US 395 through NV. All rock (not small gravel) sites were not appealing, and lack of shade made it uncomfortable in the afternoons. The wind blew every afternoon we stayed there, and without trees, there was no shelter. Laundry room and shower rooms were clean. We did not use the shower rooms, as security is always a problem when shower stalls only have a curtain, and no way to lock the door for individual safety. This might not be a problem for men, but women would appreciate a locked shower door! Small dog areas, with only dirt, but we were able to walk dog outside of park area for more exercise. Several long term residents, some that need to clean up their site, with dogs left tied up outside that barked when anyone walked by. Also, noticed several old RV's stored, or abandoned ? in spaces on the monthly section of the park. Would not recommend this park as a destination park, but is definitely good for a short stay when visiting the Carson Valley area. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Nice, spacious park. Mostly gravel spaces. Verizon cell and air-card worked well. We made reservations for a week and received an email showing the rate. Charged us more when we arrived. They corrected it to the lower rate when asked. We stayed an extra three days waiting for our mail to arrive when it had already arrived and they had put it in the wrong box. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

A first-class park and staff. Appealing entrance behind huge RV-friendly gas station. Asphalt roads, level concrete pads, and gravel for toads. Excellent laundry & bathrooms. Cleaning lady is everywhere: non-stop and friendly. Turning radius a little tight for big rigs. Just wished for shade trees. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Motorhome.

We chose this park because they accept Passport America, and the daily rate reflects that discount....the Passport America price is actually $19.98 plus tax per day. A very nicely maintained park right next to US HWY 395, but there is not much traffic at night, so it was not an issue. Staff was friendly, fast and helpful. We were led to our 70 foot long pull through site, and the person made sure our 62 feet of motorhome and trailer were parked properly within the site before leaving. We will stay here again.

We stayed here in April 2013 (monthly) and for a week in May 2013. We were going to stay again in September but they would not honor the internet price they had advertized. In May, the internet rate was listed as $165/week. In September, it was the same. We were told both times that the rate had JUST increased. We fell for it in May and paid it. We didn't stay there in September because they were aware of the discrepancy in May and didn't fix it. We felt that was deceptive. Too bad, because the place meets our basic needs when we visit relatives in the area several times per year. Pros: quiet, close to Carson City, full time residents are friendly don't have lots of junk spread around their sites. They keep it pretty clean. Cons: no shade, very windy (area in general), staff not knowledgeable about which sites are appropriate for RVs with slides. If you stay here, visually confirm that the site will be ok for your vehicle. Price discrepancy we thought sloppy at best and deceptive at worst. We will not be staying here again. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Keep in mind you're in NV; there is no grass or shade at this campground. Most sites are pull-through with paved runners for parking, the other areas are all river rock, no dust. All hookups are in the rear of the site. Nice pool, laundry, showers and restrooms. The staff are very friendly and the store is well stocked and clean. They sell gas and diesel and the price is good. They allow rig washing for a small charge. Wi-Fi was great most of the time. I would have rated this campground higher except for the fact they allow campfires and there is always a wind that will blow smoke on you if a campfire close by is burning. I feel the sites are way too small for allowing campfires. Great area to see Tahoe, Virginia City and Reno from. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

The rate included all taxes with a Good Sam discount. First of all this is not my first choice for camping in the area but since the others were booked we ended up here. The site we were given had electrical problems and after three days of surge protector kicking power off they finally ackowledged they had a problem and quit blaming it on the coaches on both sides of us and had a electrician there to fix it the day we were leaving. I can say this; they did give us three days free out of seven for our discomfort. I have a problem with RV Parks that nickel and dime you for cable TV and a pet when they already are charging you what appears to be too much in the first place. This park does have some nice amenities as previously mentioned but not enough for us to come back with the issues we had to deal with. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Motorhome.

River rock sites with concrete strip to park on. No dust during windy days. Staff is very nice. Pool and spa are covered with roof. Bathrooms are clean but hot and humid. Close to all shopping. Much closer to Carson City than to Minden. Wi-Fi spotty, got better reception on phone hot spot. Some traffic noise. We will stay here again. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Don't pay for TV, you have good reception on your antenna. Good free Wi-Fi. If you ask you get a fire pit. Beautiful half open swimming pool, nice views. Great place to visit Lake Tahoe and surrounding mountains. You don't hear the traffic noise even though the road is just next to the campground. They have the cheapest diesel we had for a long time, just at the entrance. Sites are on small concrete slabs. When you drive a big rig it is a little difficult to park but they escort you to the site and help you with everything. Friendly and helpful people. We will come back.

This park is a large resort. It has easy access from US 395, with fuel and supplies available. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The sites are all pull through, large, level, and gravel. The park has a two large clean laundry rooms, planned activities, and very good WiFi unless you use Vista platform computers. It is a very nice place to stay while visiting Virginia City, Carson, and Lake Tahoe. We would stay here again in our fifth-wheel. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Located smack on highway 395, but the light traffic noise died down every night. Competitively priced gas station and propane on site. A few trees, clean river rock/gravel sites. Very clean bathrooms, showers, and laundry room. Manager who checked us in gets an A+ for friendly, efficient process. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Motorhome.

Very clean park and the staff is friendly as you are escorted to your site. Sites are generous in size and while the WiFi is no better or worse than other RV parks, the TV reception was the best we have had in our 4 months of travel. (Maybe because it is $2 extra per night?) They have a full service gas station, propane is available and a store with a little bit of everything. Will definitely stay here again when we pass through this area.

Rate based on weekly rate. This is a great place to stay if you want to visit Lake Tahoe, Reno, Carson City or Virginia City, which is what we did. Site are concrete pads with gravel all around, so no dust blowing around. There is a pool, hot tub, laundry, hair salon, store, propane, gas and diesel fuel and playground available so you can get pretty much everything you need without leaving the campground. If you do need more, there are plenty of restaurants and retail stores five minutes away. There is a Walmart Supercenter nearby as well. I was able to wash my truck and trailer for a $5.00 fee which was great. We are full timers and find that many RV parks don't allow washing of rigs. We would certainly stay here again if we find ourselves in the area. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice, relatively quiet park with a great view of the mountains, close to shopping and dining. Roads between rows is fine for driving, but a little difficult for maneuvering a big rig. Be prepared to swing wide. There are "No Pets" signs in the lush grassy areas and the dog parks are sand, dirt and gravel. Our pets are family members, you charge us $2 a day per pet, please be more respectful of them. There are sprinklers that water the grass in the mornings. While I understand this, it would be helpful if there was a way to warn the people in the dog park that the sprinklers were getting ready to soak the dog park area. In times when the park is not busy, it would be nice if the office personnel could stagger campers throughout the park a little better than packing big rigs right next to each other leaving other parts of the park empty.

We stayed here for three nights while seeing all the attractions in the area including Virginia City, Carson City and the Nevada State Museum, the little town of Genoa and more. There were mostly permanent residents in the park at this time of year with just a scattering of travelers coming and going. The park is very tidy and well laid out and offers many amenities. The restrooms and showers were particularly clean and spacious! Didn't notice much in the way of noise, even from the nearby highway. Wi-Fi worked well. This would be a hot place to stay in the summer as most of the trees between the sites are not yet mature enough to provide any shade, but there is a pool available for cooling off on those hot summer days. We would definitely stay here again. We camped at Silver City RV Resort in a Travel Trailer.
