26 Parks near Topaz Lake, Nevada

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

The site we stayed at was loaded with cottonwood trees that were dumping cotton balls all over the campsite. It got into the air conditioner and made a mess. The Casino Buffett was weak. - User1859

What a gem, and a great price for full hookup pull-through and Wi-Fi. Easy access to highway. Upper level gravel site with view of lake. Promotions at casino for food/gaming. Super friendly counter help offered us free soda/coffee during check-in. Came for an overnight, but decided to stay a few days longer to explore area. Would definitely stay here again. - brauneyz

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

Pricey for what you get. Tight spaces. Clean park. Check in process is rather inconvenient. Noticed another poster said wifi good. We found in nonexistent. Had to use my data. Also, sight was pull thru but not long enough to leave toad hooked up to 35' motorhome. - lb0456

This is basically a rv park in a paved parking lot with lots of trees. Most of the sites are narrow and a lot of the big rigs took up every inch. The park is next to the Carson Valley Inn Casino and its cafes however there is no direct and easy way to enter the casino or cafes. True, the check in involves setting up first in the site you were assigned when reserving the site then going into the hotel to the front desk to check in and get passwords, card keys, etc. Not a problem as we just went on in for dinner at Katie's once we got checked in. There was noise from the nearby very busy highway./ There is no security at all here so be aware of that. Anyone can walk in off the street or over from the large parking lots for the casino. The laundry is in the same building as the restrooms. Restrooms require a card key for entry. Shower stalls had locking doors which we prefer. The CATV system worked well as did the wifi. We would return here. Unsure of site number. - Bookwormonwheels

First of all let me say I like this campground. We usually stop by here two days heading home from a trip. But I must say their check in, while it appears to be simple, can become very convoluted. First of all you check-in at the hotel basement area. The gentleman at the counter has no idea what an RV is and could possibly not know what the RV park is but does not want to let you in until 3 o'clock until it's been cleaned (kind of like a hotel room) so you proceed to explain to him that there's no cleanup and if there is we got a bigger problem than me parking there. We might have to call hazmat (A California term may not even be available in Nevada), but anyway after I explain to him how RVs leave somewhat early and that sites might be available, then he concedes that yes if your spot is available you can park there, very frustrating when you're dealing with people that are not familiar with the RV lifestyle. We did finally get in and during all the confusion we forgot to show them our Good Sam discount card and did not get the discount and actually laughed and discovered it after we got down the road, did not dare try to call back and explain the situation; just said you know what that's the way it goes. We've stayed at this park several times over the years and always been pleased with how well kept up It is, it is tight maneuvering through the park so better to unhook out in the parking lot save yourself some grief and possibly a marriage!! But overall we will continue to stay there. Just enjoy the ride and don't sweat the minor stuff; it's a good place to camp. - monaco cruiser

This a great find during the busy camping season. We stayed there the weekend after the fourth of July. Everywhere else was booked but this nice little place had several spaces. It is heavily wooded in tall evergreens with incredible mountain views and near a rushing creek (the West Fork of the Carson river) the sound was pleasing. The sites are short, we have a 22' class C but over 24-26' could be a problem. A few spots were longer but I saw only one pull through. Not for big rigs! Tent campers and small rig paradise. No hook ups but clean restrooms, some road noise. We loved it and with senior pass $8,(US Forest Campground) a bargain. Definitely will stay here again. - Syncro

This is a old forest service campground which is now being run by concessionaires and is keep up very clean. Primitive in the sense, no-hookups of any kind but very relaxing. - monaco cruiser

We loved this RV/tent park! Almost all the sites have water, sewer, and power. Some of the 'walk-in' tent sites don't have any amenities except gorgeous views. The host is fantastic! Very helpful and very friendly, as is Ryder, the host dog. All of the sites are spacious and nice. Some of the lower sites are right on the Carson River, but all are within walking distance of great fishing. There are restrooms and showers in the lower campground. If you are in the upper campground be aware that it's a longish and steep walk to the restrooms and showers! During business hours the cafe has a restroom available...but not in the middle of the night. There is some road noise from Highway 88 but at night it's very quiet. All sites have a fire pit and a picnic table- but at this time you can only use the fire pit at night since they are in a drought season. No fires during the day! The cafe is awesome- great meals and amazing pies, cookies and scones baked all day. There is also a small store with ice, some supplies and cold drinks. Sorensen's is 1/4 mile away and has a full restaurant. Everyone is very helpful and nice. We loved staying here but we aware that there is no phone service at all. Wi-Fi is available at the cafe during the day but very spotty. Sorensen's has Wi-Fi and no phone service. We will be back. Wonderful place! - Michelelyl

Small hillside/creek site in wooded valley. Eric was very friendly host. Pretty quiet site. Didn't use restrooms or showers so don't know about them. Really enjoyed a coffee and home-made scone and cake at the bar by the entrance. Would return if in the area. - visitor to usa

Pleasant campground in an incredible setting. Coming in on Hwy 88 from the West, it's not the first "Sorensens" venue. Each driver in our party made the same mistake. It's the second "Sorensens". At first we thought we made a mistake booking this campground. Quite the opposite! The beautiful trees and sounds from the Carson River made this an unforgettable journey. Sites 13 and 14 are the largest. Our 31 foot 5th wheel fit just fine in 14. The road is in need of some smoothing out. Beware that road has no turnaround. The campground manager is friendly and helpful. The cafe and store convenient. Would return here again. - Maltaman

We recently stayed here for a night on our way to Yosemite National Park.
Very pleased with the park, easy to make reservations, received an email confirmation.
Park was easy to find, check-in was flawless. We needed a long space, as we didn't want to unhook for the night; and they gave us the perfect place. Site was fairly level.
They told us in advance we may hear some road noise, as it was close to the highway. It didn't seem very noisy at all.
While we were there, we took advantage of the swimming pool, very enjoyable way to cool off on a hot summer day.
The electric service worked fine; since we were only there for a night we didn't use the sewer or water or wi-fi.
Interior roads were easy to navigate.
A plus is that they have a gas station on-site, which made it easy for us to fill up the next morning.
Would definitely stay here again. - KTorline

I drove in and parked, went into the building asked about a lot for the night.
The receptionist was short and said you have to move your suppose to park over there your taking up customer parking. ( I was a customer)
He was rude and sassy. they had to escort me to my site on a golf cart. It was only 2 or 3 spaces away. Really need to learn some manners!!!
Other than that the place was top drawer!!!!!!! - SubVet SSBN619

Sites had concrete pads for wheel tracks & most needed repair. The pool & spa are under a roof but were disgustingly dirty. Water was brackish, birds love the rafters of the roof, ergo digested meals end up all over the furniture and ground, and there were small water beetles swimming laps in the pool. Other than those negatives, on site there are a gas station, small store, a fishing pond, and propane sales. Pleasant staff. - rvrrat520

This is a typical Federal campground with one big plus: it is right on Lake Tahoe with a very nice sandy beach. This campground underwent a major renovation last year with newly paved, expanded sites. Sites are reasonably level and have a fire ring, BBQ and large table. There is a two tier price system. Those sites closest to the lake, designated as “Lake” in Reserve America and Recreation.gov, are $34 per night. Those a little further away, designated “FORE” for forest, are $30 per night. Many of the forest sites have good views of the lake through the pines, however. There are a couple of good hiking/biking paths leading through the adjacent forest and meadows. Bathrooms have flush toilets but no showers are available. Good cell service. No Wi-Fi, although I picked up a signal from a near-by hotel that did not require a password but I was unable to connect. My air card worked fine. Because of the trees, satellite reception will depend on your site. The two campground hosts do an outstanding job of keeping everything clean and tidy. Ordinarily I do not give a dry camping campground higher than 8 stars but the location outweighs the even the lack of showers. - Arn

After a long drive from Yosemite NP we found this park for the night. Our site wad very large and level although without any hookups. There is a nearby restroom and shower facilities but we were pretty much self-sufficient. We were fairly close to US Rt. 50 which meant road noise throughout the night but it was tolerable. We did the self check-in so we can't comment on the staff. If we ever return to this area we would use this place but would try to make reservations ahead of time. - KC8RXQ

We have camped here several times over a 20+ year period. We have had enjoyable visits in the past, but our latest was just adequate. The park is set among mature Ponderosa pines, which are beautiful, but maneuvering a large rig through them takes care. We saw several people having problems! The location is a mixed blessing. It is convenient to town services, and the beautiful Lake Tahoe with a nice beach is right across the road. The downside is the constant noise from busy route 50. We are full timers and travel in a 40' motorhome and pull a truck carrying an ATV and a motorcycle. I was not allowed to unload my motorcycle, as only 2 vehicles per site are allowed. The motorhome counts as one, and the truck counts as another. It makes no difference that the truck was towed in and there were only the two of us on the site. We had a site on the perimeter of the campground and there was a constant flow of people walking and riding bikes through our site to get to the road. I have been camping and RVing for 50 years, and have never seen so many rude and inconsiderate people. Based on this experience, you might want to avoid a site on the perimeter by the highway. All things considered, I don't think we will be in any hurry to return. - Boundertom

Really pretty park. We stayed in the B loop at the noise from HWY 50 wasn't unbearable. Nice trails lead off to across the street to beautiful Lake Tahoe. We will definitely stay again. - longlivethebullies

The campground is across the road from the rest of the resort. We walked the entire campground for exercise after a long drive. The grounds are pretty but the sites are very close together with little to zero privacy. Most of the tent sites are right on top of each other. The restrooms and showers each are individual rooms. The restrooms are very basic. The showers are in serious need of updating. They have concrete floors, some wall damage and old defunct coin machines. The resort does have a lake front beach and is located in a beautiful location. It was very pleasant walking the campground, there is a light so it is easy to cross the highway to get to the main part of the resort and the lake. We had a nice breakfast in the resort restaurant. - 2togoNebraska

We unfortunately got caught without a reservation on a weekend. The name caught our attention, and having had experience with the resort itself felt that the $82 nightly charge was high, but considering it was at the resort we made reservations for two nights. As we arrived, we discovered the RV spots were across the street in a rustic campground, not the resort.
Note the reservation was taken by the off-site central booking agency Amamark; on arrival we found they had double booked us. The desk clerk,made us call the reservation number again to confirm we had made a reservation. Finally the other clerk, drove around and found an empty slot, the last one in the campground.
Worst camping experience ever, never could get the unit leveled. Note picture of picnic table which had been previously leveled by a big rock - totally unsafe. When we checked with adjacent camper as to why we couldn't get the cable to work we were told the front desk should have given you a converter box. When I walked back all the way down the hill, the desk clerk told me she had forgotten to tell us about that and had we called we could have saved us a walk down and back up the hill. So we couldn't watch TV that night. Tried for a good hour to connect with WiFi, and when asked the same clerk about it she told us, well you are in the trees.
We were so fed up that we checked out a day early. When asked about a credit because we didn't get the cable and WiFi we had asked for when we booked, we were told those were "free" services they gave us. - RetiredUSN

This RV park had excellent rating. I'm wondering who actually wrote the reviews. Staff was helpful. Made reservations online through the resort website. Glitch in program and I was put down for a tent site. I called a couple of weeks before the trip and verified my reservations stating that it was for a RV. They did find me a site that even for a short RV it was almost impossible to back into. They are so crammed together we couldn't put out our and people beside us had to pull in there awning. The worst part is the noise from the highway. With all windows closed and earplugs in you can still hear the cars 24 hrs a day. Not worth the money for retired people. - YellowstoneBison

Stayed during Memorial Day weekend. The park is far from everything, closest town had a population of 200, no cell nor Wi-Fi for the teens. Most camp driveways were a bit short and narrow. Restrooms and showers were kept fairly clean but showers need updating. Bring coins for showers. Nice hike to the waterfalls! The park has two pools, a warm swimming but full of kids and hot wadding pool with brown-green hue but no sulfur odor. Get to the pool early, waiting lines can be long in the afternoon. - RetUSAF

Great park. The hot springs pool is inexpensive and open daily. Well-spaced sites allow lots of privacy. Nice hikes in the area. - MysticRaven
