Great place to stay! Big sites, staff is very nice, off road trails right from camp. It's a fun camp ground with lots to do. If you are looking for peace and tranquility try Weed Heights Campground, as this is a little more fun group. Nothing obnoxious, but it does have motorcycles and ATV's coming and going all day. I hear the pool is nice, but have yet to come in the summer. We go once every spring and fall. We have a 32 foot motorhome towing a jeep. - Jeeperlee

Dust is a constant here. This is a remote resort primarily serving off-roaders using trails in the vast BLM lands nearby. It is however a good base camp for day-trips to Bodie and/or Virginia City.
Out site was a level, dirt pull-thru. Power was only 30Amp, but that was enough since there was dense shade most of the day. Wi-Fi was good since there was a bathhouse nearby.
We MIGHT stay here again the next time we go to California (if they stay in the Coast to Coast network). - Alworth

Very nice RV resort. All hard dirt roads and sites with large trees with shade and open sites. Small store, bar, rec room, pool and hot tub. Most sites long pull-through with room to park car. Membership resort and set up for off road vehicles while staying with many miles of trails. No ATV noise in park. Pistol shooting range close, trap circuit, fishing pond and fast trout river. About 20 miles from small town. - Pepper Dan

We were here in late June 2017 and liked it enough to spend a second night. We would use this park again. The lower section is very quiet although near US 395. This lower section has no sewer connections, but a dump is available for $10. Power was good, cable TV was grainy.
Note that accessing the lower RV section, go down the driveway on the right side of the store, then turn LEFT to the lower section. - Bud H

For the price wasn't expecting much but this was a nice surprise. They give you coupons for two free drinks at the casino. And few dollars off diners and discounts on gift shop purchases. Although this isn't on the lake some sites have a partial view. A nearby park was booked and from the road looked packed in tight. I didn't have reservations here but there were plenty openings. Pool was crystal clean like it suppose to be but a bit chilly. Clean showers and restrooms. Have horseshoes pits. This turned out to be a great stopover with handy gas station. The casino has live entertainment and daily specials. To me this beats the other nearby RV park cramped in to just to have a views of a lake. I'm sure cost much more too. - DennisO

Price does not include 10% tax. Park is pretty nice but all the pull through sites are not level enough for a motor home . When I made reservations I was told the site was level. After driving up on 3 2x4 boards on the left rear I got close. Another coach pulled next to me and left because they could not level. I would choose a back in next time. 50 amp service worked good easy water connection and good sewer connect. Cable TV is terrible like many parks now that have not upgraded wire snowy picture . Office staff a bit disorganized but nice. Could be really nice park if all sites were level. - signaloil

This our favorite local place to camp. Full hookups, lots of beautiful shade trees, 2 boat docks, incredible views of Topaz Lake from most sites, laundry and clean restrooms/showers make this very enjoyable. The owners are very nice, as is the maintenance man. They do recycle aluminum and gave a large trash truck. They also have a quaint fish cleaning station with fresh running snow-melt water year round. They have a small store with RV essentials and basics like TP, paper plates and towels, but they have a huge ice cream freezer with a good variety! There's a store a couple of blocks away at the Topaz Lodge and casino if you need more than that. Summer is usually quite full so make reservations in advance. That being said, they usually have a space or two open for overnighters. The parking area is dirt, so be prepared, but the fishing is great as is the location for water sports. Every site has a picnic table. They do not allow any campfires at all- even a propane fire pit- this place has been owned by firefighters for 50 years, so that is something to consider, but we don't miss it. Very nice, quiet park at night. Not a loud party scene at all. Quiet hours are 8 pm to 8 am. Dogs are very welcome. There's a beach to put up awnings and beach chairs- depends on the snowpack. We bring kayaks and enjoy fishing. To get there from Nevada, head south on 395 past Gardnerville, go through the CA inspection and make an immediate left. From CA, head north on 395 and just before the inspection station past Coleville, turn right. This park can accommodate giant class A through pop up trailers. No tents unless they are part of another rig. - Michelelyl

Just a note- THIS IS NOT THE CASINO RV PARK in Nevada!Topaz Lake RV park is about 1/2 mile further south on highway 395 in California and a world of difference in the parks! We spent 4 nights at this great campground in space #10. It's a wonderful spot- as are most of the sites! We loved the social atmosphere of this site- everyone stopped by and said hello, chatted about fishing, invited us to game night and gatherings or just petted and spoiled our dog! The only negative comment was that the road noise from 395 was annoying the first night- but when we closed the vents and windows and put our little fan on in the trailer, it was much better. The Lake is fantastic and fishing was great (for everyone else!). We were invited to a yearly BBQ with a group that was wonderful. Very pleasant and helpful. There is a camp store with necessities and RV parts; ice cream, sodas, worms, ice, some food, paper towels and TP, stuff like that. It's on an honor system and you pay when you check out. The RV Park is full of beautiful shade trees and lots of sites with flowers. It's a short walk to the beach and if you bring a boat there is complimentary storage for trailers. The slips are also available at a very reasonable cost($6.50-7.50 a night)The other campers were all very nice and friendly- many have been coming to the camp for 2+ weeks every year for 35 years! They also offer a monthly rate that is very reasonable($440 a month March 1-June 1 and Sept 1- Oct 1 and $510.00 a month for June 1-Sept 1.There is a discount if you pay by check, cash or debit. Well behaved pets are welcomed; there is a quiet time from 10PM-8AM. There are no fire rings. Almost every site has gorgeous views of Topaz Lake. There is a fish cleaning station, showers and bathrooms and a laundry room. The wi-fi was great. The boat launch is free for registered guests - they do offer a visitor launch for $15 a boat. They also have propane if you run out. They have a very strict 2 mph rule in the park since there are so many children and pets in the area. The children and pets were all VERY well behaved!! We were really impressed with the park and the clientele...this lake is a Bald Eagle nesting area, and water fowl sightings were frequent. I loved seeing the graceful flock of pelicans every day! The weather was great- sunny and hot with a light breeze and cool at night for sleeping. We didn't need to use the air at all this trip! We can't wait to go back! - Michelelyl

When we arrived we were greeted promptly and escorted to our site. We are very new at pulling a 33' travel trailer and were concerned about getting into our site. The escort walked us through backing into a vacant site to turn our rig around so we could back into our site. Believe me, it was well worth any stress we had. Not only did we have the best site on the premises, #37, we got a darn good lesson on backing. Park is clean and has large beautiful shade trees. Lovely setting right on Topaz lake. Park has private boat launch swimming area. Wi-Fi was strong. Would definitely stay again. - Gettajob

We really like this park. It's super quiet and mellow. We have a jeep and were able to go explore right out of the campground. The host are very nice and friendly. The park is nothing spectacular, but it is quiet, clean and convenient. If you are looking for a park with hookups and a peaceful location this is it. Yerington is a quick drive to the East and the West is wide open jeep trails to Carson City and beyond. - Jeeperlee

The managers were a pleasure to deal with. One of them even brought us a free bag of ice! Very quiet spot a short distance off highway. Many pull thru hookups. Chukars everywhere. A great bargain too. Ride in\out for UTVs and motorcycle's. Endless trails too! - Mrjojo

Beyond funky to be sure. Lots of permanent residents. I was exhausted or the wind was terrible while passing through, I would opt for a casino parking lot or rest stop instead, kinda nasty actually! - NVDesertGirl

This was a back up spot after our spot in Bridgeport had to close for a few days. We spent five nights in their best, most expensive, spot. Yes, it is right on the highway as most of the RV places along 395 in Mono and Inyo counties are. We knew that going in, so we did not worry too much about it. The big pull through sites can handle the big pusher motor homes. Our spot could handle large trailers and had a nice concrete pad and table with chairs, a BBQ, and a propane campfire pit with chairs. It is not often that we find place that our sewer elbow will actually screw into the threaded pipe but it did here. The owner had taken great care to level the sites. We were in a group of three trailers and none of us had to do anything to level up. There was a lack of shade in out spot but that will change in time since the owners have put in new landscaping. This is about the best RV spot in the county, but it is about a 40 minute drive to the Bridgeport area. With all the road construction it was more like 90 minutes - Gtwood65

Not sure why others are rating this park at 9.2. To us this is just an average park. Had to keep windows closed on the highway side at night as there was so much noise. Also feel the rates are too high. Cable TV was OK but channel selection was not good. Staff was nice. - denvercats

We got a late start from our CA spot so finding this spot was a real treat! It is near the road but we didn't notice much road noise. Check in was quick and friendly. Our spot was very nice and we had a beautiful view of the mountains. We had a very brief stay as we had a lot of miles to cover the next day, but we would definitely come and stay longer! - cchall112

Very nice place to stay for elks members only . I agree with previous post the traffic on Kemmerling is getting more used during the daytime very very busy there seems to be a gravel yard across the street that trucks are continuously running from seven in the morning till 3 o'clock this goes on six days a week at least this was my observation how long this goes on through the year can't tell you . The RV parking is set up very nice we actually backed in with a 22 foot enclosed trailer the only thing the sprinklers washed the trailer early in the morning but that was OK we did not have to unhook. Electrical hook up was nice 50 amp was a plus specially if you were there in the summer time were you needed to run air believe me it would be hot, there is no trees to shade. We attended a breakfast at the lodge on Sunday was excellent very very good I would stay here again but definitely bring earplugs there is still some traffic noise at night if you can park away from the street as far as possible is a plus, motorhomes or trailers between you and the street might create a little bit of a buffer on noise. We camped here in a motorhome for members only . - monaco cruiser

This is a new Elks lodge and features 5 electric-only back-in sites at the front of their parking lot near the street entrance. Self-registration. AC voltage was good. The grounds were exceptionally clean and well manicured. If needed, water can be obtained from a lawn spigot near the edge of the RV parking sites, but no sewer dump is available here. There's some noise from Kimmerling Rd. out front during the day (which is surprisingly busy) but it's quiet at night. Verizon had a strong signal and AT&T medium signal strength here. This is a good place for a quick overnight stop and we'll definitely stay again.
NOTE: For the use of current Elks members only. - Gyropilot
