Overall Rating

We decided to stop here for one night while driving across Nevada along highway 50, although it is about 8 miles off the road. The park is here to protect the ruins of Fort Churchill.

We arrived late in the afternoon and were the only ones there. Surprisingly nobody came in after us so it was a very quiet night by ourselves. Many of the sites are long pull-throughs, shady and near the river where you can access trails to the ruins of the fort.

There is a dump station and drinking water but just outhouses and no showers. It was a pleasant place for an overnight stop.
