“Quiet place to pull over for the night”

Reviewed Jul 21, 2019

Overall Rating

We stopped here over Thanksgiving break on our way back from southern Nevada. We pulled in after dark and left early in the morning. I did try fishing, but had no luck. There was definitely evidence of burros! The road to turn off the highway sure comes up fast.

“Great place for an overnight stay on way to Northern Nevada”

Reviewed Jul 07, 2019

Overall Rating

Easy to find, but no name or signage. Not sure where name of Bombo's Pond came from, locals didn't know that name, but we found it and it was perfect for our needs. There were people fishing when we got there, no problem, they were there early the next morning too. We kept close eye on our dogs and cat, but were able to let them off ... more

I stopped here for 1 night, ground was fairly level but I felt so comfortable here I dropped the jacks and put out the slides. This is right off Vanderbilt Rd and comes up fast off the main road. The night I stayed there was a trucker, 2 women in a van, a large travel trailer and me. I used a sound machine and slept right through th... more

“Great Overnight Spot!”

Reviewed Apr 23, 2019

Overall Rating

Such a great spot to overnight or even stay several nights! Some road noise from Hwy 95, but it was tolerable. You can fish and swim in the "pond" as we saw several folks fishing. There are burro's in the hills surrounding this area and they do come down to the campsites on occasion. Beatty is just a mile on up the hill, with a couple ... more

“Quaint, Quiet and just what we needed”

Reviewed Feb 18, 2019

My ex and I stayed here on our way down. We had just done a lot of driving to get out of the cold and this was our first real stop for any length of time. It was quiet, a little bit of road noise but nothing bad. We managed to get a higher elevated spot to the northwest of the pond so had a great view. The hike up the hills is also wor... more

“Donkey Dung”

Reviewed Jan 09, 2019

Overall Rating

This is a cute area to stop, hike and fish. The only problem is that is smells like donkey dung and urine! Oh my gosh the smell was so bad when we visited Jan 2019. The neighboring town Beatty is annoyed by all the donkeys in the area. We had a nice time exploring Beatty, and Death Valley. Kids enjoyed hiking in the area and colle... more

“Big, Easy, Convenient - what's not to love?”

Reviewed Mar 17, 2018

Overall Rating

Bombo's Pond is easily located with the GPS coordinates on Campendium - just turn onto Vanderbilt Rd from Hwy 95 and you're there. The site appears to be an old mining operation, and there is plenty of wide open space for everyone from big rigs to tents. The pond is great for fishing or letting your dogs swim - our dogs had so much fun... more
