Really a great find. No hookups, but they have water, plus two bathrooms and one shower. The site I was in, was by the road, but the big shady tree was well worth it. There is really only two sites that have trees that give you shade. Great views, some really nice hiking trails nearby and only 15 minutes from grocery, gas, etc Th... more

Arrived around 5pm on a Tuesday the last day of April and even though the weather is crappy (low 40’s with intermittent rain/snow and a freeze warning), there were only a few spots left. Surprised to see several tent campers. As other reviews have pointed out, only the B Loop is open; the A loop is going to have electric (and water?) i... more

Of note, Loop A is currently closed for maintenance. The dump station is also closed. There are no signs or literature estimating when either will reopen. I pulled in around noon on a Thursday and there were only a few sites open; it was full by 2:00 pm. The sites are of varying size and vast majority of them are back in, off of th... more

“Peace, quiet and beautiful views ”

Reviewed Oct 19, 2018

A gem in the valley! Somewhat off the beaten path, yet still only 10 minutes from town. Gazebos at most sites, as well as a fire pit and picnic table. Two restroom buildings (very clean) and one shower facility. Spacious sites. Will definitely return!

“Great Desert Spots With a lake View”

Reviewed Oct 13, 2018

Overall Rating

Sometimes when the lake was calm it looked like a mirage. This is a great campground, lots of space between sites, sagebrush everywhere. The road nearby is Eastlake Blvd, if going south from the campground it is great. But the road coming from the north is paved but not great, goes past several ranches and is very bumpy. We made severa... more

“Nice place to dry camp”

We enjoyed this little campground as far as dry camping goes. It’s clean, with paved roads, each campsite has a nice “covered” table and it’s close to the shallow lake and hiking trails too. There’s even a dump station on your way out of the campground. Warning- the weather was perfect while we there, but the Washoe area (which ... more

We have lived in the Reno/Tahoe area for 43 plus years. Typically we whiz through the Washoe Valley at 70 miles per hour to and from shopping, the airport, etc. We finally decided to check out this state park and were very pleasantly surprised!

Firm policy on max stay of 7 days. Still a transcient vibe at times. No issues. Good value. Nice walk to dunes & lake, which was full from snowmelt. Wild mustangs, jack rabbits & ducks abound. Views of Mt Rose are beautiful.
