We used it for a base camp to visit GBNP. It's kind of a hybrid gravel lot-rest stop-campground, not very private, a bit noisy, but with good shelters and lots of parking. And park just about anywhere people did, including inside already occupied sites (at least on Saturday night). The upper section is nicer, but sites there are too cl... more

“Beautiful campground”

Reviewed Sep 18, 2018

After hauling our 36 ft fifth wheel to Great Basin NP and finding only a couple campsites that would accommodate us (and they taken), we drove the 18 miles back to the Sacremento Pass BLM land we had passed earlier on the way to the park. SOOOO glad we did! 7 or 8 sites, all extremely nice! My thoughts echo all other reviews above. In ... more

Great site, easy to find, I can't believe they don't charge money for it. Bare bones but meet our needs for the night.

We really loved staying here. No water or electricity and we didn't use the restroom as we had our motorhome. Fun trails and close to great basin national park. Really clean and nice spots.

Absolutely no verizon service for us at the campsite but we could get some at the national park roaming.

It is unbelievable that this is a free site. It's cleaner and better maintained than many paid campgrounds. It's right on the side of route 50 so finding it isn't an issue. When I arrived Saturday night (11/04/17) two large RVs were in the main campground on opposite sides but I went up to the horse campground on the very well main... more

Super easy access right off I-50. Couldn't believe it was free. Excellent site quality, clean and very well kept grounds. Great overnight stop Logistics: there are 5 or so sites on the bottom campground and an equestrian campground at the top. There are only 4 sites up top but they have much better views than the lower ones. No one ... more

Great BLM with paved patios, fire rings, BBQ gril. Very large sites. Better than most of the "official" campgrounds. You will barely hear vehicles on the US-50 since most of the traffic stops at night. No wonder, this road is called the loneliest road in America. If you don't want to hear it at all, just go in the upper section of... more

Gorgeous, clean campground with covered concrete patios, great views and excellent hiking. Lots of sun for solar. Barely any cell reception. I came on a Saturday and the lower area was full except one spot. Most of the campers were very quiet.. but one more eccentric gentleman in an older trailer was blasting terrible 80's music so lou... more
