“Very nice park, wonderful showers for after a day of black opal mining”

We usually only boondock, but we wanted to do the mining here. It is a wonderful park, clean, friendly, helpful, very well maintained. The showers(we used the old bath house, we were told the new ones were even nicer) were wonderful and well appointed after a day of digging in the dirt.
We were at the mine when the owner came to tell us our dog was barking, she was so nice about it, told us we could bring our dogs to the dig site with us (which we did).
We took our dogs a mile down the road and found a path to walk them off leash, we also visited the "warm" hot springs at the Virgin Valley Campground 8 miles back towards Denio, very pleasant.
Long dirt road (30 plus miles) but to us it was very well maintained, were able to go between 30 - 40 mph most of the way.

You have to go here on purpose -- its in the middle of nowhere, but we had a blast digging for opals and meeting all the other folks there. Its not really an RV park, but more like a property on the mining site with hook ups. Everyone there except us has been to the Royal Peacock many times on their annual opal digging trips. If we were going through this part of Nevada again, I'd stay here -- especially in the summer. The road leading to the park is terrible -- it takes a really long time because it's unpaved and you have to go very slowly. We ended up shaking loose 2 cabinets.

Digging for opals at the Royal Peacock RV Park - Weaselmouth

A days drive from Crater Lake basically put us in the middle-of-nowhere Nevada. But we had to do it because Nevada was the only state in the West we haven’t hit and it left a big hole on our door map...
