Overall Rating

Lake Lahontan (reservoir) has 69 miles of shoreline and many options for camping. I camped at the developed campground at Silver Springs Beach #7, but there were ten other "coves" along the west shore where dispersed camping is allowed. (Pay attention to the sand which is soft in areas!) But everyone must pay $15 a night, with trash and dump at exit. There are flush toilets and clean bathrooms in the developed campground and several places for big rigs. But some of the smaller sites were deteriorated and covered in beach sand. In the beginning of October there were only 4 or 5 other campers so I opted for the developed campsite. You can fish, but you cant eat them as the mercury levels are too high. Looked like a lot more activity in the summer judging from tire tracks, fire rings and other signs of camping and picnicking onthe beach. Lots of room for dogs to run. Cold and windy at this time of year, but the trade off is the open beaches and plenty of privacy if you seek it out. And very good cell coverage with AT&T. 3-4 bars with booster.
