“Great View - Dry”

Reviewed Sep 17, 2017

Overall Rating

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 offs, but nothing really "Official". Sportsman Beach is towards the upper end of lake with 3 camping areas. On top, sheltered sites, 3 along the bluff. Continuing down to boat area, there open gravel area where you can camp. Further along the dirt road, you'll come to some sheltered pull through areas, some along the bluff, usually full and the rest on the other side with a view too.

Also, FYI, it can get windy/dusty at times, so plan accordingly.
Fees? while there might be fees, there weren't any envelopes so considered it free. Just looks neglected.
