5 RV Parks near Winnemucca, Nevada
Oct 2016 - $27.00
It's mostly a paved lot with a bit of "grass" and a tree in between spots, pretty much level. Some full timers in the park but no problems so far. You check into the RV park via the Quality Inn in the Casino. It has 2 showers and a small laundromat area in the same building. Seems quiet so far, just staying a few nights on the way to CA. in our 15' pop up A-frame. - 1200bruce

Park was only 2/3rds full. First space had damaged pedestal. My EMSPT50C reported varying low voltages. Mgmt says last person must have damaged it. I go to a new spot. Voltage is 109-112. After a brief period, my A/C falters and shuts off. After the 3rd time, I unplugged and turned my generator on. NOT coming back here and will relay my experiences to Good Sam. Only 5 spots are 50A according to mgmt and all were full. I was only trying to run 1 A/C with NO other power draw. So beware if you have no voltage protection for your vehicle!!!! - BradnChristine1

This was our second visit to this park on our way to Reno. The park and facilities are as nice as when we first visited. The park is fairly new, might be 2 years old at this time, the interior roads are easy to negotiate; good size spots, very level, and clean bathrooms with large shower rooms with a bench. We were lucky to get "winter rates". This is not a destination campground, there are no amenities other than a big meeting room, however, it's a great stopover spot. We will definitely stay again. - Living the Life

Easy on and off freeway. Newer park and very tidy. The Wi-Fi needs to be improved as it hardly worked at all. Our site #25 only had the 30 amp working. The only other negative would be from the many miner and construction workers living in the modular units. They come and go at all hours with noisy trucks. If we were to be there more than one night, we would have asked to be moved further away from their neighborhood. - Cucutz

Sitting here trying to think what I can say as a negative about this park. I can't think of one...unless it was a few patches of green grass needed on spots in the interior. This place is spotless, new asphalt roads and sites, nice hookups with sewer connect below site surface. If this isn't enough, the Winger Restaurant is directly behind the office and an easy walk for great food and "beverages". We had a wonderful meal there. The shade trees are not tall enough ...yet...to provide meaningful shade. If I could give this park a 12 I would. Quiet! No highway or road noise of any kind, and a panoramic view of the surrounding hills. Friendly staff! Will stay at New Frontier RV "resort" anytime we are within a hundred miles. - Sweatlife

This rustic campground is several miles off Hwy 140 in he Sheldon National Wildlife Refuge. It's a gem for the adventurous soul. No hookups, vault toilets, some shade trees. The best is the natural beauty, solitude and the warm pool. There is a shower house with warm showers feed by the warm springs, as is the delightful pool. Small fish nibble ones exposed body parts. It tickles. Bullfrogs call. Birds sing. Locals know this place and come to bath. Services are miles away. - waterwoman

This campground is not for everyone. I submit it here in case you want to visit Sheldon Wildlife Refuge and want an easy place to stay. First, the CG is 2.5 miles off of the paved road. The gravel road conditions will vary; when we visited the road was good but still required a speed of about 5 to 10 mph to not rattle too much. The campground is a little hard to locate. The GPS coordinates are N41 51.166; W110 00.152. There are signs from NV route 140 directing you toward the Opal Mines and a commercial campground "Royal Peacock" which is 10 miles down the gravel road. That is where we were initially heading, but did not want to do 10 miles on the gravel road. The CG is free. There are probably a dozen or more somewhat defined campsites with tables (at some) and grills (at some). There is a CG host, which we did not interact with during our 2 night visit, but it was good to know that there was someone around. There are no reservations, so you take you chance as to whether a site will be available. During our visit, there were many sites available, but on a holiday weekend it might be a different story. There is water available, which seems to be OK, but we came in with a full tank of fresh water so did not use it. There are warm water showers and a warm water small pool available. It can be dusty and the CG is not overly beautiful, but there are nice sunsets and it is quite. As noted, the main reason one would want to stay here is to visit the refuge, which is wonderful if you like wildlife, such as birds and pronghorns. If the opportunity arises, we would certainly stay here again. - TheJim

First of all I'm not a KOA fan, in fact I will avoid a KOA campgrounds just about at any cost. But when I saw the $19.99 a night and have stayed at this park prior to it being a KOA: I said what the heck I'm gonna try it out again.
The park is still in the desert so there's no way of getting around the dust. But there has been some changes: a lot are KOA changes. Their store now has a hotdog area which is very good. Also they are starting to serve ice cream which is another very good. The park has a nice dog wash which we used.
Overall the park looks tidy but you're never going to get away from the dust and dirt as long as you're in this type of environment. The inside store has a excellent RV miscellaneous parts very, very good, probably one of the best I've ever seen. The laundry room was clean, and appealing to use. We had an issue with one of the dryers, but that was it. They will refund your money if there is an issue.
I would stay here again late in the fall at this price. I don't know if I would pay the full blown KOA price, but sometimes convenience has a cost. I've said that before but we will definitely come back. Road noise for us was not an issue as we were probably about in the middle of the park. - monaco cruiser

Big rig and long coaches need to be mindful of where your tires are as sites are narrow, timber lined with protruding rebar. Prevosts could have problems. Tent area but no yurts or cabins. Sites are all close, sufficiently level (#123 was seriously tilted - front jacks bottomed-out), sand and gravel, pull-through (short back-ins around perimeter), stone between. Pedestal locations vary from mid-rig to rear of site, electric 20/30/50; no meters. Moderate water pressure with good taste. Sewer pipe is 3" threaded, at ground level. No patios; nice (plastic) picnic tables. No room for ground fires; no fire rings. Good satellite views. Free cable TV. Free Wi-Fi but poor coverage, pages would not load. Verizon phone and 4G at 4 bars. No recycle bins. Noise: Distant railroad, no aircraft or local traffic noise but interstate traffic is audible. Bug Report (mid September): flies, flies, and more flies. Runners: gravel roads marginal for running. Yoga: no good place to put your mat. Conclusion: Score 5-Acceptable, good price. - StephenK

Park is a big parking lot with a few scattered trees. All sites are pull thrus and are easy to set up. The location is just off interstate 80 and half way between Reno NV and Salt Lake City, Utah. Park staff is small but friendly and efficient. Verizon Cell is ok and Satellite TV easy to set up. Stayed a week and would again. - BrianStacifulltimers

Gravel throughout except along one side which has grass for walking your dog, as usual some owners did not pick up. Site I was on was level and long enough for motor home and tow dolly, utilities located towards rear of site and cable was midpoint, free cable with lots of channels, free wifi was average. Sites alternate direction, all pull thrus, so they share utility hookups on driver's side. Didn't use laundry which is located off the office. I stayed one week and definitely would stay again. - Critter

Pretty tight spots. Basically a huge gravel lot with utilities dispersed throughout. Glad I had a coax extension cable with male-to-male adapter, because when you park your rig, the water / power / sewer is back where it is supposed to be but the cable is way up by the cab. Lots of long-termers, but no problems with any of them. Office has a large store with lots of RV equipment and supplies. Easy access to I-80, but not so close that you hear road noise. Will stay there in the future. - coffeetime
