“Amazing!”

At first we drove by the sites up by the highway and were not impressed, mainly they were all very un-level and close to the highway... really more like tent spots. Then we realized there was a road that went down much closer to the lake. We took that and found a spot that was very level and it had just incredible lake and mountain vie... more

We did some hiking and had Military jets fly by and over the mountains. Very quiet and peaceful. Watched the Strawberry Moon come up. The only problem is with the Bathrooms... they were in desperate need of... more

“Clean basic campground with a view from every site”

Reviewed Jul 03, 2018

What could be better? A nice quiet campground with a stunning view of a large body of water with the sun cresting the mountains with your favorite morning tea or coffee? I happen to wander off the highway and found this great spot for the evening right at 11 pm. Spent only one night at the last week of June of 2018 before heading for... more

We were heading north and just needed to stop for the night. This spot was the 1st of the BLM campsites on Walker Lake so, we stopped there. Luckily,there was a motorhome in front of us and I saw him drive straight past the others and head down a gravel road. I figured he must know where he was going so, we followed him. Good thing too... more

Reviewed Sep 17, 2017

Fees? Not really clear, but reported $6 but no envelopes so I considered it free. Always wanted to stay around Walker Lake, used to pass it all the time growing up. There are several campgrounds, one just outside of Hawthorne before you start along the cliffs along the lake. Needed some clean up and windy. Further up several turn o... more
