“Great views and quite place”

Reviewed May 30, 2019

Overall Rating

I arrived here at dark and I had a bit trouble to figure the layout of the park and how to get into a campsite, as there is no light. The campsite I choose had a 3% off level, which is the max. off lever my fridge accepts without getting into an error mode. The views are great and I took a bunch of nice pictures on the next morning. M... more

“Great One Night Stand”

Reviewed May 29, 2019

Overall Rating

Stopped for a night after Death Valley. We were alone on the lower level of campsites, at the end of the paved roadway. Relatively level gravel site. Easy in with our 23’ Airstream. Far enough from the highway to not hear the traffic.

Great view of the lake and the snow capped mountains to the west.

“Fabulous! Quiet, dark and beautiful ”

Reviewed May 26, 2019

Overall Rating

Because you cannot see the good campsites from the Hwy, nobody comes here. The lake is beautiful but not used. It’s too saline for anything. There were little flies by the water but not at the campsites. No facilities except for pit toilet and trash. Big rigs are fine. The road loops at the end. Disregard the camp spots at the top nea... more

“Great views and experience”

Reviewed Apr 08, 2019

Was here in early April. Beautiful weather. Kids had a great time playing in the sand although the (cold!) water level was about .25 mi down from the actual campsite. Pit toilets right there. Very clean. A few other people on a Saturday night, everyone quiet and respectful. Could hear highway noise, but it wasn't disruptive. Could not ... more

“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.

“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

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
