Dave Deacon campground is about a 7 mile drive in from the main road. The road was a little washboardie but not too bad (we have been on a lot worse).
There is only one camp host, and over 20 campsite and 4 clean vault toilets, and 3 fish cleaning stations, and and RV dump station but no potable water. Can accommodate big and all size of rigs, also tent camping.
We were here around the first of April and the only ones here so far. A few miles up road is a natural hot springs you can soak in.

This is our second time coming here and will back again if possible.

Came here to check out the warm springs (about 1.5 miles west of the campground) and the Neowise comet (amazing view from here). The campground sits in the middle of a beautiful, desolate valley with amazing views in every direction. The night time sky was epic, zero light pollution in these parts. I’m not a fisherman or duck hunter, but apparently the campground caters to them with Kirch wetlands nearby. The warm springs (I’m not sure that they even have a name) are very pretty, and truly feel And look like a little bit of the Caribbean in the middle of Nevada. The springs are definitely not hot, kind of more like a heated pool. They are great for soaking on a summer day, but likely wouldn’t be warm enough for a winter or a late night swim.

The reason for 4 stars was that the campground itself just seemed “clunky” and wasn’t super pretty. Ugly awnings over the picnic tables, sporadic, random trees and saplings all over yet the campsites were not private feeling at all, though they were nice and level. There was a free dump and water spigots all around, so that’s really great. The 7 mile road in (from the south off of 318) was quite washboarded but doable with any car.

All in all, very pleasant experience. Probably wouldn’t drive super far out of my way to come back or make a special trip, but would gladly stay again if in this part of NV again.
