9 Parks near Silver Springs, Nevada
Jun 2016 - $17.00
I picked this campground because I am a history bluff who grew up on western movies, and it was a hot day and I needed shade for my tent. It met these needs. Loved seeing the ruins of the old fort. The shade was great but the small black flies were not. The good news was they did not bite. This is not the state park's fault. Summer time near a river you get bugs. Had I been in my travel trailer it wouldn't have been a big deal, but for tenters it is a royal pain. The campground needs work. The pit toilets were clean but smelled like a privy. Most parks have gone to the composting toilets which have almost no smell. The campsites were dirt--there were traces of gravel from very long ago. There were train tracks near by but I never saw or heard a train. There were only 5 campers including the host. The sites were easy to get into and there were some big rig, pull thru sites. This could be a great campground with gravel sites and composting toilets but it hasn't seen any upgrades in many years. I probably would not camp here again. - NT2013

About the only good thing I can say is that the huge, majestic cottonwood trees all through out the campground make for a pleasant late afternoon, even in August. Small, wooden bridge across a dry creek just before entering the campground made me think more that twice before crossing it. Gravel/dirt pathways throughout campground are mostly being reclaimed by bordering trees and brush. Don't even open the door on the pit toilets! They appeared not to have been cleaned in quite a while. There was only one other camper in the entire facility so I assume the 5 or 6 state park vehicles I saw at the entrance (Ft. Churchill state historical park) must concentrate on that aspect or the facility. Water spigots interspersed throughout but did not use. With a bit of effort on the part of the parks department, this could be a real gem in the middle of the blazing desert (even with pit toilets!). Would not stay here again unless I hear that they've made some efforts at clean up or if I was stuck for a night. - pyrthkr

The Sam Buckland Campground is park the the Nevada State Parks system. It is part of Fort Churchill State Park. The sites are tucked away in a grove of trees below the old fort. There are pull throughs and back in sites. There is a dump station at the camp ground entrance and there are a few places around the camp to get fresh water. Most sites are very well shaded. The Carson River is nearby and makes for some nice nature walks. The rail road line nearby is rarely used. This is an excellent place for history fans as Fort Churchill is part of the Pony Express Trail. I camp here often as this is one of my favorite places to get away and relax. - KofNV

Wi-Fi strong near the office, I stayed in site #4 - no clue further away. As with all public Wi-Fi, it becomes useless when lots of people try to access it. Was good until evening then, not so much.
Pull-through site, full concrete with tiny spots of grass, no shade.
Site narrow with little room for parking errors so my extended slide would clear the electrical pedestal. Had to 'go around' twice to get it right.
Helpful & friendly office person on check-in.
Seems to have lots of permanent residents judging by the clutter around and under the various rigs. Some, well, they've seen better days.
As a transient stopover: works fine. I did not check the rest rooms or laundry. I would stay again if I needed a place to get water or dump tanks. - Retired-n-Roamin

Very nice park. A lot of permanent residents, but well kept and quiet. Wifi worked great. Park is convenient to everything.
All the sites appeared to run low in the front. To have been completely level, would have made our step quite high, so made do with being somewhat low.
We will stay here again, if in the area. Camp host was very helpful. Reservations are recommended as they are quite popular. - vwbluestar

This is the second time we have stayed at this park and we really noticed the difference. The last time we stayed in a 28 ft travel trailer, but it was definitely tighter in our 40ft 5th Wheel. Staff is friendly. Sites were narrow and short making it a challenge for a larger RV. We did see, however, many larger RV's there as there is not much choice in the area. My husband walked the site before we took it. Concrete pad and lawn at our site, FHU , wifi worked, but we did not use it. Cable, although they were having trouble with cable in some areas of the park. Because we arrived early they gave us a cable ready site. Lots of permanent people who appeared to be working, mostly. There is an Amazon warehouse in Fernley. It is adequate for a one night stay, or if you have relatives in the area, which we do, but one night is enough. There is a lot of congestion getting off I 80 in Fernley and there is a daunting traffic circle, so suggest googling it before you go there. - california traveler

We have used this park several times and it has been terrific every time. It is a bit off I-80 but well worth the drive. The pull through sites look too short to leave your tow vehicle hooked up however they let you pull unto the asphalt of the road further than it appears you can. Each site has grass which made our dog happy. - R&DJ

This park is easy to get in and out. Very clean and beautiful setting. The only problem we had was our gps, be sure and take exit 48 off of I-80. - Birdhouse

All sites are concrete with vehicle parking area next to rv site. Hook-ups face neighbor site not yours. There are two RV parks right next to each other which made it easy to miss the entrance to Fernley RV Park.
Fernley RV Park has a block wall facing W.Main Street. Go down Marie Dr., which looks like a long driveway to get to the office & entrance to the RV Park. - MAFLAF

There are five sites remaining and the others are across a fence and are being torn out as part of another project. It would be a little hard for big rigs but they could do it. Pool was wonderful as was the hot tub. Showers/bathrooms immaculate. WiFi worked good. - Walter Cullop

I was informed that the motel had been sold and the RV park would be closed down. Several sites had already been torn up during this visit. This will make staying in Fernley a little harder, only one other park in town. New Wal Mart going in across the street, might be OK for rest stop when completed. - Marv

This is a small, clean park. Very friendly, helpful manager. The park is easy in/out from Hwy 50. Paved roads and concrete pads, no grass but have artificial turf and sand. Sites are very close. Utilities are fine. Fenced in dog park all sand. Walked our dog across the street at local Casino that has grass. We stayed 2 nights to visit Virginia City which is about 8 miles away. We stayed here in a 43' motorhome on site #30 which is a double front to front facing site right at the entrance. We had the site all to ourselves which made easy pulling and exit. We would consider staying here again if in the area. - RTM

This is a great RV park but just not our style. The hosts are very pleasant and helpful, the grounds are in immaculate shape and the showers & laundry facilities are super clean.
Two trees at our site had branches that needed trimming back. After guiding us to our site, the host immediately came back with loppers and trimmed the branches. One day, the shower hot water was out. The host immediately went over and found the wind had blown out the water heater pilot light. Hot water was restored within 15 minutes.
The only downsides for us is that the sites are very close and tight. We could almost "pass the Grey Poupon" between the rigs next to us. Also, about 80% of the park is permanents or semi-permanents. All the rigs are in good condition and there aren't any eyesores but we're not fans of such parks. - LM&TinView

Price is based on weekly stay (50 amp). This place is a little gem. Grounds are immaculate. Interior roadways are almost new asphalt, sites are level cement. No grass, astro turf is used. Picnic table at every site. Individual sites are a little close to each other. Really nice owners. Owner takes you to your site. Electric was fine. Good water pressure. Elevation is approx 4,500 ft. Owners have a added a nice patio area with tables, awnings, and chairs and two large gas BBQs. I will be back. One negative - Very little shade. - GoPackGo

Well first off, remember this is the only RV park in Virginia City. SO if you are going, this is it. On arrival we found another trailer in our reserved spot. RV Park people wanted to move us. The sites are not all the same, and some are very difficult to get into and to level on. So we held out for our reserved site. We had to plug into another site while the other people moved out 6 hours later. - Gtwood65

This is a nice little RV park. The price is reasonable compared to hotel rates here. Most of the spaces are not quite level so bring blocks or jacks. The shower facility is way better than I expected. It has a code on the main door and there are 4 individual bathrooms with shower, bench, sink, and toilet. My space had 20/30 amp hookup. The sewer hookup requires your hose end to screw into the opening. There was a cable TV connection but I didn't use it to rate it. The little store has a good selection of basics and is reasonably priced. - KofNV

Right on the hiway west of town. Concrete pads. Has hiway noise . Needs some updating. The 50A power was not sufficient for our A/C. Site spacing was reasonable however most sites near us were empty. Some long term residents in the rear. - Marshnik

A great couple of day stop. Everything very clean and quiet. Owner/manager very helpful and cares about his customers. Washer/dryer setup inexpensive. The Churchill County Museum is a must see in town. We will return. - Libby

Pulled in after 6 pm so office was closed. Had called ahead so knew spot was available. Price was well below last two RV parks we have stayed. Graveled flat pull-thru spots. Sites are arranged diagonally for easy entry and exit. 30 amp electrical service, sewer, and water. The restrooms, laundry room and area was dirty with built up scale. When using the washer or shower the water ran brown, did not wash clothes or shower. When the sun went down the cockroaches came out in droves. Near to Hwy 50 so constant traffic noise. Would not stop here again, better to stay in the Walmart parking lot and save the money. - mamacallsen

We arrived after a long, hot day. Were not in a mood to be too picky. Pulled in about 3pm. Office was closed, so we just picked a site. Park is old and designed for smaller rigs. Sites are level, narrow and short. Many of the campers have to park their truck in an empty space. In one site, the sewer connection is right in the middle of the neighbor's patio pad, barely 5 feet from their front door. - Deck & Margot

Old, dingy park. Sites are so narrow we had to move twice to finally find a spot that our single slide out would work in. Thankfully the park was 3/4 empty so we could pick a spot Plus the length is so short on the slips that there is no way to park a truck in your spot; we parked in empty slip next door. Bathrooms are sooo small; can barely fit in the shower. Plus, was given wrong code and couldn't get correct code until the next day. I do have to say, it's pretty quiet for being on a main highway, but not a pleasant place to stay. Certainly no room or atmosphere to sit outside and enjoy an evening. A lot of full timers in old, unkept trailers living there as well. - babsnjimbo
