26 Parks near Topaz Lake, Nevada

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

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

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

Very nice smaller campground next to the casino. Doggy friendly, allowing small pens and plenty of shade and grass. Nice area to park while you wait for space available. You pull up to the kiosk and call into the main lobby for site number. Very nice and friendly. Restrooms and laundry are very clean and nice.
The park is small and a bit tight to navigate, but is doable. Recommend unhitching a tow car. Pull thrus look a bit short for longer motorhomes (>34ft) or fifth wheels. We would definitely stay again. - ButterflyDogs

My first review of this park. This web site is usually dead on but not this time. We had a back-in at the rear of the park. Very, very tight. Just a blacktop parking lot. The proverbial pass the Poupon with your neighbor. Slides very close to neighbor. Other sites may be OK but we could not wait to get out of there. Terrific park ten miles down the road. If you want easy access to a casino it might be the place for you. Did not go to casino. Would not go back. - pjstewart51

We stay here every year for about 3 total weeks on and off. We just love the area and consider it home away from home in summer. So pretty looking to west with view of Sierra's. Sites all have lawn and asphalt for parking rigs. Full hook ups with cable and good wi fi. Access to pool and Jacuzzis as well as exercise gym in adjoining hotel. Security patrols area and we have never had any negative activity in the park. - signaloil

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

It's not bad or horrible, but it is little more than a glorified parking lot with gravel yards that are uncomfortable to walk on and barely adequate pads to park your RV on. The pads aren't "pads" at all in the normal sense - they only cemented the tire tracks and left the center portion open, which they filled with the same gravel I mentioned earlier. That would be fine, I suppose, except that the "tire pads" are so far apart that the feet for my front jacks straddle the inside edge of the cement by exactly half - enough to have done some real damage if I hadn't noticed and put the full weight of the rig on them.
The noise from Hwy 395 is quite loud and there are a ton of full-timers who clearly have more important things to do than maintain their spaces. There is zero aesthetic appeal to any part of this "resort" - it's really just a flat place to park your RV.
At $40 a night with ZERO refunds for any reason, I expect a little more for my money. - Wryly Blithe

Others say it very well. Our semi concrete pad was broken up as well and roads are narrow getting in and all of the site. Fuel was very fair priced but store was very expensive ($2.50 for a one liter of soda / pop as example). Needs owner maintenance as rules for resident site maintenance. - AZSwede

Sites are cement for the wheels of your RV, which are pretty level. Surrounded by gravel which works although not very appealing. Lots of full timers, with weeds growing up through the tongues of their trailers and all through the sight. Obviously site maintenance is minimal. Pool area is under a cover with lots of birds / nests to help keep the pool water questionable. Dog pens are dirt and big enough for your dog to relieve itself but not large enough for play time. There is fuel on site as well as a small store. Check in was very efficient and you are led to your sight by an employee. With some additional park maintenance and some expansion of dog parks, this could be a nice destination park. - User3492

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

Check in was horrendous. Monday afternoon and RVS were backed up to the highway. When I got inside the office there were 7 people in front of me. There was only one clerk and he was doing a fine job with 4 days of experience. The first site that I was assigned had a vehicle parked in it. I went back to the office and luckily got another site. The park was recently taken over by Aramark and obviously needs some organization and training. Lots of highway noise as well. There are NO flat, straight areas to disconnect the toad. Signage to the RV resort said "turn left", when in fact the RV resort was on the right. I was told by a camp host that they've been trying to get the sign changed for years. - User3492

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

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
