“Great clean riverside camp”

Reviewed Jun 11, 2018

Overall Rating

Great small campsite that was kept very clean, no hookups, pit toilets, drinking water and garbage dumpster available. No dimp station . All of the sites are placed in a very pristine setting among large granite boulders and aspen groves. Easy access from the road, and even easier access to Carson River. Hope Valley is great fly fishing spot. $18.00 per night, $6.00 for an additional vehicle.
Note that there is plenty of Boondocking camps available in the short vicinity but ther tend to be accessible vid rough Forest Service dirt roads. There are plenty of stores nearby for basic necessities.

“Quiet stay among the Carson river ”

Reviewed May 22, 2018

Overall Rating

We love this campground. Aspen trees , huge granite boulders, & great views of the mountains above. It's only $18 a night. The vault toilets were the cleanest I've ever seen. There are no showers, just fyi. The fishing is good, & your right next to the river on the lower loop. The upper loop is a bit more quiet, further from the road. It's not a place for big rv's, & site 12 is the worst in my opinion. Best camping in the area.
