This is the 2nd time we have visited this location, it’s a great quick get away close to Las Vegas where we live full time. First visit was in November of last year and lucked upon site 1. Which is an amazing spot, has less highway noise than site 7 we used this past week. It is dry campsites, no water or dump stations available. ... more

Super spacious and private spots all with lake access. A little road noise but the view makes it so worth it

I have wanted to camp here for many years. I stayed here in later October and was lucky to find an open spot at noon. Camp sites are on the side of the dirt road and small loops off the road. Larger rigs were in several of the sites. A couple of the sites are tent camping only. The highway runs Other than the highway noise which runs ... more

We walked, visited the visitor center, and watched the birds. We enjoyed our stay here. We took a short ride north to Mt. Irksh Wilderness to see the rock art. So worth the drive!

“Great. ”

Reviewed Apr 12, 2017

We found this place by accident. We were on a road/camping trip on our way to Yellowstone, via Big Basin National Park and the Sawtooth Mountains in Idaho. We only stopped for the night. Very surprised to find out that it was free. Only other two campers were there. Did not explore, but enjoyed the one night stay. The small lake is... more

“No vacancy”

Reviewed Mar 30, 2017

Overall Rating

Have visited this location for three years (during mid-week in March and April) and there has never been an RV site available. So it's not a destination camp for us. But it's a quick one mile detour on a good gravel road with an large turning loop at the end. Nice spot though seldom quiet, I suspect, with the busy highway running paral... more

“Great birding”

Reviewed Oct 21, 2015

Overall Rating

This is a small camping area located between the highway and the lake. The sites are widely spaced (we are two campers together in my pic as we were traveling together) along a long gravel road. There are a lot of mature cottonwoods that provide nice shade. There are tent and RV spots and technically we were in a 1 RV or 2 car spot,... more
