4 Parks near Yerington, Nevada
Oct 2013 - $25.00
Beyond funky to be sure. Lots of permanent residents. I was exhausted or the wind was terrible while passing through, I would opt for a casino parking lot or rest stop instead, kinda nasty actually! - NVDesertGirl

A true experience in funk, camping among the abandoned open pit mines. But no complaints about the park: nice level sites, sparkling restrooms, easy in and out, apparently all pull-throughs. Good Wi-Fi signal--at $1/day, which will be explained to you by the genial host. We're staying an extra day, however: a High Wind Warning has us hunkered down to avoid wind gusts up to 70 mph out on Highway 95 ALT. Even in the park, our rig is rockin' and rollin'--though not in danger (we surmise) of capsizing. We'd stay here again--if we travel this way in the future; its a convenient stop between LV and Reno. - Dick B.

Quiet park, no highway noise. Hook-ups are mid-site, with the sewer hook-up first, then electric, then water. Two deciduous trees between each site. Private shower rooms with toilet and sink. Showers have a very nice adjustable shower head. Laundry across from showers. $1.00 for washers. The same building has a club room. A clothesline and clothespins are available. Friendly and helpful manager. - airtravel

Dust is a constant here. This is a remote resort primarily serving off-roaders using trails in the vast BLM lands nearby. It is however a good base camp for day-trips to Bodie and/or Virginia City.
Out site was a level, dirt pull-thru. Power was only 30Amp, but that was enough since there was dense shade most of the day. Wi-Fi was good since there was a bathhouse nearby.
We MIGHT stay here again the next time we go to California (if they stay in the Coast to Coast network). - Alworth

Very nice RV resort. All hard dirt roads and sites with large trees with shade and open sites. Small store, bar, rec room, pool and hot tub. Most sites long pull-through with room to park car. Membership resort and set up for off road vehicles while staying with many miles of trails. No ATV noise in park. Pistol shooting range close, trap circuit, fishing pond and fast trout river. About 20 miles from small town. - Pepper Dan

We really wanted to like this resort more than we did. The all dirt roads and sites just meant everything was dusty. We didn't see the river at all as it was a hike from the campground or to access the walking trail required going 3 miles out to the main and going down a different road. We aren't fans of side-by-side hook-ups, but knew that is what they were. That said, with the park less than 20% occupied, why did they were they assigning everyone facing spaces? There were 2 tables for the 2 sites with only one side usable because they were touching and no place else to put them. We did an easy day trip to Lake Tahoe just because we didn't want to spend time hanging out in the dust. - Tvl Junky

I picked this campground because I am a history bluff who grew up on western movies, and it was a hot day and I needed shade for my tent. It met these needs. Loved seeing the ruins of the old fort. The shade was great but the small black flies were not. The good news was they did not bite. This is not the state park's fault. Summer time near a river you get bugs. Had I been in my travel trailer it wouldn't have been a big deal, but for tenters it is a royal pain. The campground needs work. The pit toilets were clean but smelled like a privy. Most parks have gone to the composting toilets which have almost no smell. The campsites were dirt--there were traces of gravel from very long ago. There were train tracks near by but I never saw or heard a train. There were only 5 campers including the host. The sites were easy to get into and there were some big rig, pull thru sites. This could be a great campground with gravel sites and composting toilets but it hasn't seen any upgrades in many years. I probably would not camp here again. - NT2013

About the only good thing I can say is that the huge, majestic cottonwood trees all through out the campground make for a pleasant late afternoon, even in August. Small, wooden bridge across a dry creek just before entering the campground made me think more that twice before crossing it. Gravel/dirt pathways throughout campground are mostly being reclaimed by bordering trees and brush. Don't even open the door on the pit toilets! They appeared not to have been cleaned in quite a while. There was only one other camper in the entire facility so I assume the 5 or 6 state park vehicles I saw at the entrance (Ft. Churchill state historical park) must concentrate on that aspect or the facility. Water spigots interspersed throughout but did not use. With a bit of effort on the part of the parks department, this could be a real gem in the middle of the blazing desert (even with pit toilets!). Would not stay here again unless I hear that they've made some efforts at clean up or if I was stuck for a night. - pyrthkr

The Sam Buckland Campground is park the the Nevada State Parks system. It is part of Fort Churchill State Park. The sites are tucked away in a grove of trees below the old fort. There are pull throughs and back in sites. There is a dump station at the camp ground entrance and there are a few places around the camp to get fresh water. Most sites are very well shaded. The Carson River is nearby and makes for some nice nature walks. The rail road line nearby is rarely used. This is an excellent place for history fans as Fort Churchill is part of the Pony Express Trail. I camp here often as this is one of my favorite places to get away and relax. - KofNV
