Good for a no frills overnight stop. No OTA TV or Wifi. Sites are narrow but long to permit tow vehicle and long trailer or MH and towed. Grill in service station has basic fried food. Store/fuel pumps operate 24 hours, grill closes at 8pm. We have stayed here numerous times on our way to Vegas. - sarge 19

Stopped here specifically because we love the hot springs across the street. However, some stupid idiot vandalized the site and now its closed. Anyway great weather here the week before Thanksgiving and we enjoyed the sunset for the one night we stayed. Sites are basically a parking lot with electric and water. Lots of other overnighters here. - Sewfast

Nothing special, convenient place to stop before heading to Las Vegas, they have fixed things up a bit could do a lot more, but for $22.00 what do you expect. No park WiFi but good ATT service. - bankedtime

Very nice people run this park. Looks like they are in the middle of upgrading. Front pull through safe spacious. Easy enough to get into, nice gas station/store in front, easy to get in and out of even hooked up to trailer. Quiet at night, even with 93 running nearby. Great stop on the way to Idaho. - grandma camps

Back to back pull through sites quite narrow. Hostess kept wanting me to get too close to utilities for my slides. I do not believe there is room for another big rig next to me now with my slides out. Good TV. Good 50A power. Do not plan to eat out on Monday night as the only restaurant (Mexican) is closed that night. I guess there is a grocery store in town. - easydoesit

Everything worked, park is simply a large dirt parking lot with no ambience or aesthetically redeeming qualities. Check-in was efficient, lady in the office was pleasant and helpful. Located on a busy street. It was okay for an overnight stop only. Easy in and out due to wide open parking lot style. There aren't many choices in the area. - Katy29

This was a must stop destination. The whole Area 51 was on my husbands bucket list which we actually did the 700 mile detour to stay here. Nothing fancy water /electric only they did offer a shower if needed as out hot water heater was down. Stayed 2 nights talked with one of the locals for a interesting view of living in the middle of no where. Thoroughly enjoyed the down time to just sit and watch the sky and local landscaped. Will be going again as a stop over when we do the east to west and back again trip in 2 years. Very friendly people and everyone has a story. - M Brown

Very basic campground. Only 4 hook-up sites, on a fairly level gravel surface. We had a 30 amp site that was sufficient to keep the A/C and microwave and freezer running at the same time. Water is at each site, but no sewer. Only two trees to share between the four sites, one need to be trimmed. Management said it's on the list of things to do and they were very friendly, as are the locals. We were the only RV here.
Several people stayed in the A-Lee-Inn, which surrounds the RV area.
We would stay here again, if we were ever in the area, which isn't very likely considering how remote it is. It's just neat to say you've been there, done that. Hey, it's Area 51! - Percival6

We originally booked our reservation for a electric/water hookup site. However we received a call that due to the size of our 5th wheel (38 feet with four slideouts) we were told that we could not be accommodated in the hookup site. We were given the option to boondock (first come, first serve) for the night in their parking lot. We really wanted to come here so we took a chance and boondocked for one night. It worked out great. We were the only RV boondocking but did have 3 other groups in our near vicinity who were tent camping. It was hot so we used our generators to run our A/C so we could sleep at night. It was a great experience. We got to drive out to Groom Lake Area 51 Boundary and the Back Gate to Area 51 with the guard shack (that one is closer to Little Ale'Inn than the Groom Lake Gate). We loved doing this. Nothing beats seeing a sunset over the Nevada desert and being on the ET Hwy out in the middle of nowhere. The Nevada skies at night are something that everyone should experience as well. If you get the chance you need to stop at this place for a night! Another mention was that our site did have a picnic table and fire ring. We never used the ring as it was too hot to have a fire. The tent campers did build a fire though.
They do have power/water available for a $15 fee (reservations recommended) but only if you are in a RV that does not have any necessary slideouts that need to be extended. This did not work for us. - mrojasinwa

This is a small FREE camping area located between the highway and the lake. The sites are widely spaced (we are two campers together in my pic as we were traveling together) along a long gravel road. There are a lot of mature cottonwoods that provide nice shade. There are tent and RV spots and technically we were in a 1 RV or 2 car spot, but the camp host was ok with it. There was a lot of road noise, as these are very near the highway, but it was somewhat less at night. There are two pit toilets, one at each end of the camp road, that were very clean. There is a 3 mile walking trail along the lake that was a nice morning walk. We were joined by a blue heron in the water near us both in the evening and morning we were here. Note, there is no notice of the turn to the campground if you are coming from the north. The sign is around a slight curve behind a hill so look carefully. I can't remember exactly what our cell coverage was, but we have ATT and it was good enough to stream a video. - ALbums

Really an amazingly pleasant place to camp with sites right on the lake. And it's free! The only negative is the traffic noise from Hwy 93. The previous review has it right. Great birding, great scenery. I'm going back this coming week. There are only 12 sites and only a few are for RVs so arrive early. - mockturtle

I wish I knew about this place last year when I stayed at a nearby, overpriced, RV Park in Alamo. All campsites are along the eastern side of the Upper Pahranagat Lake. Being a wildlife refuge it is a birder's paradise. There were hundreds of birds of various types. It was great waking up to the morning calls of the ducks. The views are spectacular, especially at sunset. There is no charge for camping, only a 14 day limit over a 30 day period. No hookups of any kind, just a few pit toilets. No generators allowed. I would definitely stay here again. - mrbob
