6 Parks near Panaca, Nevada
May 2016 - $17.00
I headed here on a lark because of the bad weather at Great Basin NP. I am sure glad I did. I spent 2 days in the park, it rained off and on but I was able to hike every trail in the park. The formations were extremely interesting but the trails were a little slick in places since the formations are mostly mud. I had brought my dog along and we hiked several miles a day.
The campground was quiet and VERY CLEAN. The rangers were friendly and helpful. The rate was$15 per day for locals on a dry camp and $25 for the added electrical hookups. It was also $2.00 more per day for out of state residents. Each campsite had a covered table, and fire ring. There were 3=4 pull through spots and the others were back in. Fire wood was also available for $4.00 per bundle.
I would bring a good camera and tripod if you are interested in the night sky. The stars were spectacular.
I plan to head back to take more star photos soon!! - Outdoor Bob

We arrived around 4pm after having called and talked to Dawn at the State Park office. She followed us into the campground and suggested because of our size and the time of day that we park in the handicapped spot. We loved it, all cement and away from other campers. We kayaked at Eagle Valley Reservoir about 40 miles away and took a day trip to Lehman Caves. No one every bothered us or asked us to move even tho we camped there 3 days. - msunnergren

This is a beautiful park, very clean and well kept. It was self pay, we never saw a park employee. $27 was the out of state fee. We had water and 30 amp power. We got there at noon and it was half full, by 5 it was completely full. Big event coming, Dutch Oven Cook off. Park was still nice and quiet. Got up at 6 AM and hiked to the cliffs and watched the sunrise. Rivals anything I've seen. We would camp here again and stay longer next time. - Clyde Clevenger

This RV Park has only 5 spaces and is right on Main Street just 3 blocks down from the Historic Center of Town. Pioche is a Historic mining town and is worth a day. The RV park is all gravel and has full hookups and cable TV along with a picnic table. There is also a laundry facility on premises. It is worth a nite to stay & visit the town while passing through the area. - Michael Kibler

Did this park after Big Bend of the Colorado SP. Kind of let down but in a good way. This is your basic campground, no frills, surrounded by nature. Park is about 12 miles east of Pioche on Hwy 323. Peaceful is the word I would use to describe my visit. This is an older park and it's facilities show it. They are maintained well but show their age. There were no hook-ups so I had to run my generator. Quiet hours are 10pm to 7am so if you can't live without watching TV after 10pm this is not the park for you. If you want to get away and enjoy the silence and solitude of nature this is the place to go. - Lone RV Ranger

We enjoyed our stay at this well-maintained park. Easy access to the highway and with a friendly and accommodating owner, the 50-amp sites are large, level gravel with a small tree and great views of the surrounding mountains. Good park WiFi and strong Verizon cell and data, with unobstructed views of TV satellites. Some long-term residents, but their sites were well maintained. A beautiful area with lots to see, we'll return again. - Meanderman

April is not the most scenic month to view the wide variety of plants in this park, but it's still a nice, clean and quiet place to stay. The staff had not yet planted 500 flowers grown in the onsite greenhouse so there is much to see in other months. The staff was very friendly and helpful with sightseeing destinations and there was someone working on the park nearly continuously. The sites were not real level and were "wash boardy", but that won't preclude me from staying here again for another eleven days. - Passin' Through

This is a fantastic Nevada State Park! Eastern Nevada is unique and full of surprises, this park is one of them. This is probably the nicest and most meticulously maintained State Park we have ever found. The facilities are incredible and the campground is kept absolutely spotless clean by one of the most dedicated and friendly hosts we have ever met. The bathrooms and sites are probably the best you will ever find. The host shared his local knowledge with us and guided us to the Delamar ghost town, without a doubt, one of the high points of our trip. (you do need four wheel drive for that trip though) The town of Caliente is also a neat and clean little mining town with lots of history. Don't miss the incredible hiking trails and the really neat park just a short distance above the campground. Incredible scenery and magnificent high desert ambiance. We can't wait to return to this area next winter. There are three other really nice State Parks in this area too. Kershaw-Ryan and Cathedral Gorge can easily handle big rigs. Spring Valley and Echo Canyon Parks are a little more snug and may present a challenge for a rig more than 32 feet in length, but well worth a day trip to see them. - americana36

Beautiful CG, approximately two miles out of Caliente off of SR 317, with exceptionally deep and level gravel sites. The State Park is the home of the former Kershaw Gardens which includes; wild grape, roses, and a number of other flowering plants -- neat to see that foliage in the middle of the Nevada desert. Generators are allowed between 7:00 am and 10:00 pm. Water spigots are interspersed through the CG and a dump Station. The day use area, about a mile from the CG, includes; the gardens, start of the trails, picnic area and a wading pond. This Park is a MUST SEE! - Bruce and Sue

This campground is 20 miles east of Pioche and 2 miles from a small village with supplies and a restaurant/bar. The sites are spacious with covered picnic tables, fire pits, tent area and room for a motorhome. We've stayed before in our 35' class A coach. There are water sources nearby and restrooms with showers. There is a boat dock on 65 acre Eagle Valley Resevoir with a boat launch. The $15 rate is with a NV resident discount. Boat docking is available for an additional $2 if you have a campsite. Boat rentals are also available. Fishing is also good off the boat dock. There is a dump station just before you enter the campground. - Michael Kibler
