Typical old outdated facility. Over priced for what you get. The location is the only thing going for it. Lots of permanent residents. Mostly 30 amp sites. We did manage to get a 50 amp site, so called deluxe site. Not sure what was deluxe about it. Very narrow for big rigs. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Motorhome.

We stayed one night, it's a beautiful park... enjoyed watching the children and pet's enjoy their separate parks. Nice view of the Truckee River and Reno in the east.

It's KOA, everything was perfectly clean, tidy and quiet at night. Right off I-80 west, shuttle to the local casino, gas and food nearby. It had a great road for walking. Will stay again! We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Fifth Wheel.

Nice to accommodate three RVs traveling together by putting us next to each other. Easy access from freeway. Easy walk to casino. Clean, well-maintained park. Cons: Bad WiFi. Small dog run for such a large park. Some pads were uneven. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Motorhome.

The main thing everyone noticed is that water is leaking everywhere. There is a puddle of water near the pool and our water hook up leaked and flooded our site. The front office staff said there is only one maintenance man and it will take forever to fix anything. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Travel Trailer.

We stayed at this KOA since we couldn't get into another our regular campground this year. What a mistake and we were stuck there for 4 weeks. The sites are not level. Sprinklers run and flood sites. Pet policy not enforced. Dog droppings in the turf areas (much of the turf was dead or dying). Owners do not pick up after there dogs. Quite a few long termers which always downgrades an RV park. However, most of this we could deal with except for the management. The manager at the time we were there was rude and unreceptive to discussions regarding pets and running faucets that needed repair. The park is old and maintenance is lacking. Yes, the view and location is great (if you don't mind the train diesel horns randomly throughout the day).

I would find it hard to go back unless there was a serious improvement in the park and management. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Motorhome.

The layout for this park is terrible as far as the entry driveway/registration area. Tight skinny driveway and confusing as to how to proceed---several rigs pulled in short and blocked the way for others to get by. Cleanliness takes a hit due to inconsiderate dog owners, really large dog owners. But ultimately the park needs to "pick up" where the moron dog owners left off. And it looked like a backhoe would be needed, some piles were rather immense. Only one, single person bath/shower for the whole park?! As usual, overpriced. Pool was clean, small, & packed (expected for a hot July weekend). The prices here also jump astronomically for Hot August Nights. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Motorhome.

This is hard to rate, it's right below Highway 80 and the casino and of course like every other rv park in the world there is a train track right next to it. And of course they run through blowing their horn at 3:30am. Nice clean but there are a number of full timers who have dogs and bbqs and parties. For what it is it's fine. For a relaxing time, forget it. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites are asphalt and fairly level. They are bit narrow. The road access to the campground is very good. The campground is near the freeway, but was quiet. The showers were limited and a bit old. The staff was great and very helpful. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Travel Trailer.

This park is a basic RV parking lot with a few small trees in the grassy areas between sites - overpriced in our opinion. It was easy to navigate. The dog run was partially flooded while we were there. There are lots of smokers in this park, including the employees. The worst thing that happened here was employees destroyed a honeybee swarm that would have departed peacefully given an hour or less. Sprayed poison all over then left the toxic bee corpses on the pavement to sicken birds. When questioned, employees laughed about how quickly the bees perished. We were disgusted at their ignorance and left as soon as possible. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Fifth Wheel.

All big rigspaces are pull thru and 55ft long, our 40 ft coach and truck toad just made it into the space. We were there only for overnight so did not want to unhook. Looks like there are several semi permanent residents. 50 amp Power & water worked well and site was level. Easy place to walk around. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Motorhome.

The park changed hands 6 months ago and they are working on repairing years of deferred maintenance. I was told that there were problems with the water, power, or sewer in over 80% of the sites but most have been corrected. The restroom is available with a keypad 24 hours when the office is closed. The staff was much friendlier than in the past and was concerned that we had a good experience. Boom Town security does patrol the park regularly and is available on call 24 hours. The looks of this bare bones park has changed little over the 8 years when we stay in September but we do not use it as a destination park. The easy access and distance from the noise of I-80 works for our needs. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Motorhome.

Sites pretty ancient, with old hookups. One toilet and shower (one room with a stall and shower) and same for women (one room with stall and shower) for 203 camper slots? Yup. Both are outside the office. If you are lucky enough to have to go while the office is open, there is another restroom stall inside, but you have to ask the staff for the key. Otherwise if they are both occupied, you're out of luck. Nonexistent Wi-Fi unless you are right nearby the office. Didn't use pool or jacuzzi. Upside: not a lot of trees if you want to use your satellite receiver. It's about 11 highway miles from downtown Reno, if you are interested in taking in the sights. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Motorhome.

Very convenient, clean, level sites. Lots of shade trees and a small plot of grass and wood picnic table at each site. I did not use the restrooms or showers. The pool was closed for remodel but looked beautiful and ready. Lots of area to walk and only a short walk to the casino or The Cabella store. We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Travel Trailer.

We decided to just get away for a couple of days and chose this park due to being within 100 miles of our home. We were impressed by how clean it was and how friendly and helpful the staff all were. We arrived without reservations and were able to get into an end space with a very nice view of the surrounding hills and scenery, etc. There are train tracks down below about a half mile away and trains do go thru the area during the daytime but they use their horns sparingly. At night there may have been one or two but we sure didn't hear them. Boomtown Casino is a short walk from the park where we did go for breakfast one morning. Also a Cabela's store is adjacent and within walking distance, along with a large and well stocked Chevron Minimart. A very nice well kept grassy area for pets and a park-like play area with swings, etc. for the children is located at one end. This park is quiet during the day and at night. There is a very small amount of noise from I-80 but nothing that kept us awake as it's far enough away to mute the truck noise a lot. Nice sunrises and sunsets. We ended up staying a extra day and will be going back again for sure when we want a few days away without a long drive. Check it out the next time you need a place to drop anchor for the evening or for a few days relaxation......... We camped at Reno KOA at Boomtown in a Motorhome.
