“The flies drove us away”

Reviewed Oct 30, 2018

Overall Rating

We had planned to stay at Twenty Mile Beach for a week, but the house flies and sand flies sent us packing. When we arrived, we unhitched from the trailer near the dumpster to scout out a spot. If you turned right, there was a fantastic spot at the end that was large enough to accommodate a couple rigs, flat and had a great view. Un... more

“What a find! ”

Reviewed Mar 14, 2018

Overall Rating

We were our way home (Oregon) from Death Valley. This was so easy to find and lots of places or RV's. We were there on a Thursday night. We got level without unhitching. There were a couple blacktopped "Roads", but we drove closer to the waterfront - needed 4W drive. As far as cleanliness, there is a dumpster that I am sure helps kee... more

Beautiful view out onto the lake and definitely good for anyone looking to get away from other campers. Ultimately the campground is too close to the highway to be a four star site. It is difficult to get close to the lake without possibly getting stuck. We were the only one's there and the place was actually a bit creepy.

“Great location”

Reviewed Sep 01, 2017

This place is great. We were the only ones there. Easy access from the highway. We took advice of earlier review and went left at the dumpster and took the road to the end. Far enough away from the highway that you could only hear a few trucks. Toilets were very clean

“Lord of the Flies”

Reviewed Aug 31, 2017

We had an awesome site. There is too much loose sand and dirt if you want to be closer to the water. Beware! We saw three vehicles get stuck. Our campsite was to the left on the road (left of the dumpster). Looks like we got one of the better sites. Someone made a makeshift fire pit but we got rid off and made some major improvem... more

We spent one night here it wasn't to bad not many mosquitos lots and lots of dragon fly's. What isn't in the other reviews if you have a big motor home like us after you turn in go left at the dumpster we went right and had to spend 3 hours digging our tires out lot of loose sand but if you go left the road is firm. The view was awesome

Happened upon Walker Lake while making my way from Reno, NV to Las Vegas, NV on a route I hadn't taken before to visit my daughter. The sun was starting to go down, so it was time to find a place to camp for the night before it got dark. Was so happy I pulled off the road here. Camped down toward the waters edge. There were only a ... more

This BLM site is a gem! Located on the NE shore of Walker Lake, several miles north of Hawthorne, NV, right off of US 95. Easy access, large dispersed sites, great views We liked it so much that we stayed an extra day. Very clean pit toilets, large dumpster, clean area. Only drawback is the sounds from the trucks on the highway bu... more

“Scenic and quiet”

Reviewed Aug 21, 2016

Overall Rating

Easy access on a gravel graded road. Some washboarding but not too bad, had no problems getting in with a large rig. I stayed at the gravel pull-thru site located between the pit toilet and the lake, or if you're adventurous or have a smaller rig there is a decent road and sites closer to the lake. The GPS coordinates for the pull-t... more
