“Entered the swarm......”

Breathtaking views, excellent camp site but should have paid closer attention to the reviews. An insect problem is stating it mildly. Beware, this is a lizard's paradise!!!! There are swarms of flying insects. If it wasn't for the bugs, we would definitely camp here again.

We choose Walker Lake for a 1 night stp, but stayed three. Going down with our 40ft diesel + toad we were aa bit to brave and ended up close to the lake. Seeing the loose sand the tires had gone through my wife expected a struggle to go up. Making a grocery trip to Hawthorne the Jeep had some difficultees going up. But all in all going... more

“Awesome dry camping in the Nevada desert”

I know others have mentioned bug problems but I'm pretty sure that describes pretty much anywhere you camp in any state if you do it in the Summer or early Fall. We stayed here in October and didn't have that much of an issue. One night we left the awning lights on and noticed it attracted a lot of moths, but that's pretty normal any... more

“Great views of the lake, but the near constant wind was annoying”

Reviewed Feb 06, 2019

Overall Rating

Not a lot of defined campsites, but there are a few little areas for RVs to dry camp safely on solid ground with a great view of the lake and surrounding mountains. Roads that descend further down to the beach can get pretty soft, but would be great for smaller 4x4 camping setups. Couple sets of vault toilets and a dumpster. 4 bars VZ ... more

“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

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.

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

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
