15 Parks near Sutcliffe, Nevada
Nov 2015 - $25.00
Upon arriving, the signs leading to the ranger station and the RV park itself were VERY faded and broken, mostly made of wood and you really have to keep your eyes open. And try not to drive down the wrong road. We finally arrived at the ranger station and checked in. Now, the price for the RV park is $25.00 per day, full hook-ups. OR $15.00 no hook-ups and you're on the beach. Or $400.00 a month which is an awesome deal. We stayed a week. We parked very far from the restrooms because I wanted to view the lake every morning, but the restrooms were clean and the water was hot. We didn't encounter any problems while at Pyramid Lake.
There are lifetime RVers that live at the park and one gentleman in particularly wanted us to stay! Oh goodness we wanted to! But, sadly our full-time city employment calls and we have to answer. - Oie de Etudiant

This is located in the desert and Pyramid is a desert lake. But, to us, Pyramid Lake is beautiful, with rugged mountains and desert scenery. The park, at least the front row, has a great view of the lake.
For the money you get a large asphalt paved space, water, sewer, 30 amp electric and clean showers and bathrooms. Can't beat the value. But a shower without hot water is an ordeal. Apparently, when the propane tank for the hot water was refilled, the pilot light wasn't relit. And we could not find the friendly clerk or anyone else to get the hot water going.
I really wanted to give this park a higher rating, but no hot water for the showers is a big no-no with me. - Arthur M.

The things going for this place are that it sits right on Pyramid Lake, the woman who runs the check-in is very nice, and the scenery is great if you like that high desert look - the landscape all around is basically scrub. That said, it's basically a parking lot with electrical installations. The view of the lake is lovely, but the beaches are not well kept by the Paiute tribe that manage it - lots of litter and stuff lying around, and the beach shade huts need work. You can swim in the lake (we did), and since there's not anyplace else around to stay unless you want to go into the hellhole that is Reno, this may be your best bet. - casasf

We really enjoy dry camping at Pyramid Lake. Camping is allowed on the east side of the lake pretty much anywhere you can park your vehicle as long as it's 20' from the shore. There is a fairly wide and well maintained dirt road off the highway were Warrior Point is. There are pit toilets available which were very clean when we camped there. It can get busy on the beaches however there are many places to camp so you can find privacy if you want it. - braindead0

As mentioned in an earlier review, if you want to dry camp at Pyramid Lake you can buy a permit in Sutcliffe for $10. The weather was nice for dry camping August so we opted for the $10 dry camping experience vs. the $35 at the marina campground. Pyramid lake has many dirt roads leading to beachfront camping locations. Be careful which road you select due to sandy conditions that could leave you stuck!!! We asked around and went to Pelican Beach which is marked with a sign 3 miles north of Sutcliffe. The dirt road down to the beach was all hard packed and we were able to park within 20 feet of the water. Pelican Beach was fairly crowded on Sunday afternoon when we arrived but by about 5pm almost everybody was gone except for a few RVs. If you are not camping on a weekend, I highly recommend this beach for dry camping vs. the developed marina campground, which is a parking lot on a bluff quite a ways away from and above the water. If you want to get right on the beach and jump in the water (as we did), you will want to stay at Pelican Beach. - my12by60

The park was well-maintained and filled with gorgeous RVs.
Having a hot dog vendor on site one day was a nice touch.
Staff was very nice and helpful.
Sites were plenty big. Restrooms were huge.
The dog area smelled bad. The reason is that dogs aren't allowed to pee anyplace but the dog area, even though there are lots of bushes at the end of each row and around the entire park perimeter. It's a strange setup and not very pet-friendly. Dogs are supposed to be on leash even in the dog area, although many people didn't abide by that.
I would have preferred real grass instead of astroturf in each site.
Our site backed up to a noisy self-serve truck wash that was open all night. - Rusty_C

This is the IMHO the ideal suburban RV park. Close to interstates and main highways but well removed from the noise. Immaculate grounds that are flawless and spotless, flat as a pool table, wide paved roads to concrete pads and predominantly pull through sites. Artificial grass between sites gave it a welcome splash of color but was neat and clean. Spacing of the sites was more than adequate. It is designed for rigs of all sizes but mainly big rigs. It is setup to cater to adult campers with no "play grounds" that we saw. The entrance is first class as is the entire staff in the office and out in the park. I would be here all the time if it weren't 3,000 miles from home! - DMcKitt

Our travels have placed us in a few very nice RV Parks but this by far is the best: very level concrete sites; all paved streets; full activity club house and BBQ area; swimming pool. I could go on and on. You will not be disappointed with a stay at this RV stop. - JHawthorne

This is an RV park, but basically for full timers and perm residents only. Honestly, they only keep less that 5 spots open for travelers. Had to pay extra for a pull through (we had no choice) and still had to unhook because it was so small. Dog poop everywhere, stepped in it twice. Dog run smelled so bad my dog wouldn't go in. Perm residents let their dogs run off leash and two off leash dogs charged me and my dog while walking at 9pm. Noisy, stacked in like cord wood, if we weren't so tired we would have left. Didn't even feel safe leaving my dog alone in the trailer so we could go get dinner. The folks in the office were nice but that was about it. I would Not stay here again, I would rather stay in a rest stop over this place. - hit it

Camp sites are small. Had to deposit trailer and park tow vehicle next to trailer. WIFI did not work. Cable costs extra. - LaSelvaMan

Pass this place! Next to a mobile home rat park. No escort to site. Streets very narrow. Sites very narrow! Sites not long enough for 40'er. Wi fi did not work past office. Cable not working. Not enough room to park my dually truck on site. Trees overgrown throughout the park. Staff did offer to refund two additional nights and apologized for our experience. We will NOT stay here again. - firedguy

Easy check in. Spaces a little tight but easy enough. Good hook ups, not shared. Great monthly rate. Will definitely return. - Doug McGiffin

A nice little park. A little tight in spots, but not bad. The rates aren't bad either especially if you want to stay a couple of months. Nice big laundry room, small but nice pool, good views. I'll definitely stay there again next time I'm in the area. - 5erFun

A parking lot atmosphere. Pet unfriendly: Has a basic dog area but animals are limited to where they can go. $60 deposit was required to get cable. Will not stay here again. Worst place we stayed on whole trip. - tpaine

We choose this park because the higher rated places had reviews that mentioned issues with dogs. It is so frustrating to stay at a place where the dog can't pee on the grass. That's no problem here if you have a dog and there are places to walk your dog in field areas, no grass but it was an ok place to stay for 2 nights with a dog. However, the asphalt roads are rough and deteriorating. Some sites are gravel and some are asphalt and we had some trouble leveling. Mostly permanent residents although they were friendly. About 3 miles to downtown. Neither wifi or cable worked at our site but our Verizon hotspot and Directv satellite did. We are in a 37' class A and I wouldn't recommend coming in here with anything bigger. I will look elsewhere if ever in Reno again. - thekites

We pulled into Reno to stay 2 nights and chose to stay on the west side of town. This park is located next to a sketchy mobile home park but the RV park itself is private with tall rock/brick walls. It was quiet at night and we had no problems. As a bonus, from our spot we could see the lights of Reno below - it was quite pretty. We would stay here again if we were in the area. - twodigitalnomads

Staff is extremely friendly and helpful. We changed our reservation by a day a week before we arrived, and they gladly refunded the amount. This campground is VERY quiet but no real amenities, but it works well as a home base for visiting Reno. Reasonably close to Hwy 395 to get downtown and around the city. Our site was very wide with lots of room for our tow car. The only issue was backing in, as it was steep. We could physically do it, but with a 40 ft rig our tow bar was really scraping the ground. It took quite a bit of maneuvering to get in without hurting our tow bar. Once in, we were able to level the rig. The site was gravel but neat. Walking the dog was easy by going outside the campground. - Danni

Top Notch! A real First Class RV park with a professional, helpful staff and clean well maintained, level sites. You can't get a better CG for the money. Definitely a return is in the cards. - reccarey

Price reflects weekly rate. Roads are asphalt as are cramped sites. Front desk folks are very cordial. The comments about low-flying planes are understated. This park is on a the Truckee River, directly across from which is the primary runway for the Reno-Tahoe Airport. The sound of a 737 jetliner the approximate distance of a football field above your coach all day long and occasionally during the night is a bit much. The pool was not open but appeared to be run down. The adjacent public park is very busy during the weekend. The rules require that you walk your dog outside of the park on a public walking/bike trail (where I witnessed homeless people sleeping), which can be a little frightening if your dog needs to go out at 4 in the morning in the dark, not to mention a bit difficult for the dogs to hold it until they get there. Furthermore, there are only two points of access to the trail and not at all dog friendly in my opinion. Lots of long term folks with run-down rigs and damaged cars Low branches all over the place. We will not stay again. - BigRigTravelerUSA

We were able to get a campsite without a reservation, (mid-week & off season) and found the check-in process to be very smooth and professionally handled. We had a drive-through spot, but we had to unhook in order to fit our truck in our site. The sites were fairly close together, affording us just enough space for a couple of lawn chairs beside the trailer. The Wi-Fi and TV hookups were excellent. If the park had been full it would have been inconvenient to get our dog to the pet area, but we were able to cut across without going through anyone's campsite. A nice, paved walking path goes along the Truckee River adjacent to the park. The trail goes on to a public day park that would be great for kids. Considering that the RV park is in the city and a short drive from shopping, restaurants and casinos, it is a fairly good buy. - Jolalla

The park was convenient to town but needs updating. Most sites have a black top pad and adequate width between sites for a tow vehicle. Some sites are a little short. Very few trees which you would expect in Nevada. Staff told us they would be updating next year. I would recommend a sound wall along the busy street and a cabana and picnic table for each site. - bobinidaho

Typical casino RV park. Cement pads, landscaping, and short riverwalk nearby. The hotel/casino has shopping, pool, & restaurants. There were many homeless encampments along the river within 50 yards of the park, and we were cautioned to keep our belongings locked up. - mtnflyer

Good for overnight stay. Close to airport. Walking distance to casino. No patio table. - Maltaman

Office and laundry close at 6 p.m. Hard to get and answer on the phone. No info for emergency, sewer lines backed-up. We were parked in a drive thru parking lot. Wi-Fi password was wrong and no one was around to help. - DeniseC

Right across the street from the Peppermill Casino/Resort. It is gated and asphalt just a parking lot. However the place is clean and quiet and we like it being locked at all times. As we are only in the park to sleep it serves us very well stayed here for 5 days. - Terry G

One way, drive down the middle asphalt parking lot through a gate in front and out one in the back. The only reason to stay here is to be close to the Pepper Mill casino (and we were disappointed with the meal we had there). All back-ins with the sewer at the back of the sites (two hose lengths away). WiFi kept kicking out and finally wouldn't hook-up at all. I won't stay here again. - 427435

This is not a campground in the normal sense. It is really a paved parking lot with just enough room to back in the rig and park your tow next to it. Barely enough room to extend your slides without encroaching on your neighbor's site (marked by a painted white line). Now the positive: The entire site is walled and gated for security. The best thing about this "park" is that it's located just across the street from the Peppermill Casino which was perfect for us because this is a major spot for the Hot August Nights crowd which included us. This event also accounts for the high daily price of $89. After the event was over, Sunday, the price was only about $33. - robbo67
