“National Forest Campground convenient to Hwy 50, but sorely in need of some maintenance and repairs.”

Reviewed Jun 12, 2017

Overall Rating

We stayed two nights at Bob Scott, a small NF campground just off of Hwy 50. The main draw for us was the Cahill Valley Loop mountain bike trail which can be accessed just across the road from the campground. We’d read some very positive reviews, but were disappointed in the campground. We arrived fairly early on a Monday and foun... more

Great cell service, bathrooms a little sketchy, serene at night, bring extra leveling blocks to get level. Awesome trails and views!

“Nice little spot right on Hwy 50”

Reviewed May 28, 2017

Overall Rating

This is a cute little campground located right off hwy 50, about 10 miles East of Austin. When I arrived, I could not find an envelope to pay, or any information on the rate. I asked the forest service worker and he said the camp is currently free until they get the water turned back on (some of the spouts were already working but some... more

“Quiet spot along US50”

Reviewed May 25, 2017

Overall Rating

When we arrived, the sign said closed. Since spending the night there was our plan, we pulled in anyway. We'd read that camping just outside the gates was also acceptable, so that was plan B. Fortunately a forestry person was there and said that we were welcomed to stay; the water and bathrooms weren't open yet, but people were camping... more

“Beautiful”

Reviewed Sep 14, 2016

Overall Rating

This is a beautiful little campground off Highway 50 a few miles east of Austin, NV. We fit a 36ft motorhome and the attached tow vehicles in one of their pull-throughs.
Plenty of trails right outside the campground provided a good hike with the dogs.

“Great little overnight stop on Highway 50”

Reviewed Jul 25, 2016

Overall Rating

When you are driving along Highway 50 The Loneliest Road in America this is a great stop to rest your weary head. This campground isn't free - it's actually $10 per night. But it has water, trash collection, and pit toilets. Each site has a fire ring and picnic table. It also has great views of the area and gorgeous starry skies.... more

“Good place to spend a night while traveling along Hwy 50”

Reviewed Jun 10, 2015

Overall Rating

We were looking for an overnight spot and saw this forest service campground just off the highway. It is a small loop with mostly unlevel sites but we managed to find a nice pull-through. There is road noise but very little traffic along 50, especially at night, so it didn't bother us. We found dirt roads behind the campground for an e... more
