9 RV 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

Site arrangement was a little strange but it worked OK. Pulled through without unhooking toad, and it looked like we were sticking out into the roads both front and rear. However, there was plenty of room to get by, and if you looked up the road, there were curbs that showed where the edge of the road really is. When the manager parked us, there were some small tree branches that would hit our slide. He came out with a saw and cut them off. Very accommodating. We were in the front half of the park, where the parking pads are paved, but just long enough for the RV - toad was on gravel. Grass between sites. It was quiet enough there during the one night we were there. Verizon cell and internet worked well. - JA1800

OK park for an overnight. Mostly seasonal or permanent residents. First sites coming in aren't too bad, but back where we were, its more like a parking lot. No grass, table, fire ring - just enough room for the MH. Seemed to be a lot of traffic through during the night. The people who run it, however, are very, very nice. - hartk

Good overnight park. Hwy and railroad noise was not overwhelming. Site and utilities were fine. Slight water leak but staff and I attended to that. Restrooms OK but showers need to be rehabbed. Did not use but laundry looked good. - gumper

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
Sep 2007 - $30.00
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

Managers are a pleasure to deal with and actually the reason we returned here. Spaces are pretty close but very neat and clean. Showers,laundry and restrooms are very clean. Rated the value at only 4stars because there is no pool, jacuzzi,or fitness center. Wifi is great. Very helpful people. - traveler97754

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

We stayed one night but arrived about 10:00 AM before actual check-in time. The staff was wonderful about checking to see what sites were available and getting us into one right away. We did not use the facilities as we had our own, but I would DEFINITELY have no qualms about staying here again! Even if there was more than one campground in town..... - PaulaG

April 25,26 Virginia City RV Park, Virginia City, Nevada $40 This park is the only one in Virginia City. It is set on a hill one street down from the main street. Most sites have some view of either the cemetery, mountains or the town. An older park but the bathhouse was clean and there is a little store in the office. Over 36 sites on the property. The owner and his wife are very nice and they add to the character of this park. The park has full service sites with cable, a little store, WiFi, Laundry, a few tent sites and rental cabins. The town pool is within walking distance from the campground. Looking out from the back of our site we could see the mountains, cemetery, mines and hills all around. We were told that the Motorbike Grand Prix will take place this last weekend in April bringing in over 400 riders. All we needed to do is bring out a chair and sit down to watch the races down the hill from our site. There are many scheduled events throughout the 3 seasons to bring tourists in even Camel races. We would return to this campground. - gsnakehill

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

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

Nice park except the spaces are a bit too close. The park has changed hands and is now called Sage Valley R.V. Park. - camperguy

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
Jul 2010 - $25.00
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
