Camping in Nevada



About Nevada Camping

Leave the glitz and glam of the Las Vegas Strip behind and come camping in Nevada. Explore the petroglyphs and ancient cultures at the Valley of Fire State Park or relax in the high alpine along the eastern shores of Lake Tahoe. With over 80% of the state dedicated as public lands, there’s an adventure for everyone.

For some of the best camping in Nevada, head to Pyramid Lake. Located just 40 miles outside of Reno, the lake offers a variety of camping and recreation options. Keep in mind that the lake is located on the Pyramid Lake Paiute Tribe's Reservation. In order to camp here, you’ll need to obtain a permit first. Enjoy dispersed camping along the water’s edge. Don’t forget to bring your boat, SUP or kayak and cool off in the lake, be sure to check out the Pyramid Rock island and see how this awesome spot got its name.

The Valley of Fire State Park, Nevada’s largest state park, contains over 40,000 acres of stunning red rock formations peppered with ancient ruins and native artifacts left behind by the Ancient Puebloan People. Admire petroglyphs, climb the red rocks and uncover another world in this Mars-like landscape. Due to the sweltering summer temps, the Valley of Fire State Park offers perfect place for winter camping in Nevada.

Looking to climb a mountain? Consider hiking to the top of Mount Rose in the Lake Tahoe Basin. Although this area is quite popular and crowded during the summer months, it’s well-worth a trip to this sapphire, high-alpine oasis. Various camping options are available.

Located just outside of Las Vegas, Lake Mead is one of Nevada’s premier outdoor recreation areas. If you’re tired of the crowds, consider hiking up Black Mountain. This lesser-known trail can be done in a day and there is plenty of camping at nearby Lake Mead.

If you’re a national park lover, you’ve got to check out the quiet scenery at the Great Basin National Park. Dramatic mountain ridges meet sagebrush valleys at this little-visited park. Plenty of wildlife and excellent camp spots await you. With so many lakes, deserts and mountains, there are endless possibilities for Nevada camping. No matter where you choose to go in this great state, The Dyrt is here to help you find the perfect perch to pitch a tent.

A dangerous road when wet

I drive a lifted 4wd and have years of experience driving in all sorts of conditions. I started out on this road to Onion Valley after a moderate rain storm and wished I hadn’t. Less then half way in, there is a shelf road that winds around a mountain next to a valley. The mud was so slick and…

Neat and clean RV resort.

Very neat and clean resort. Bathrooms were spotless and had separate lock codes for men & women. Pool was open (late Oct). Contactless checkin. Our map & receipt was taped to the office window. Full hookups. Electric pedestal was a bit old but the 50amp socket inside was brand new. Very…

Simple but nice!

We arrived late at night and our host (Lucy) left us perfect info to find our site quickly in the dark. It was quite a surprise to wake up and see a pretty empty but lovely campground! Lucy was so kind to us and I wish we could have stayed longer! The Casinos are within walking distance but we did…

Wide open dispersed camping

Wide open lands with plenty of trails to discover. We continued well past the GPS coordinates and found a perfect spot for us at the intersection of several trails. High winds at night so tie EVERYTHING down. Lots of trash on the ground so please take an extra bag out. There is a dumpster just…

There is no water but they are kept clean.

A lot of spots but just enough privacy for your spot.

A beautiful view!

Friendly, Clean & Pet Friendly

Easily accessible from I-80 in Winnemucca, Nevada. I was greeted with friendly service & a cute dog at check-in (immediate WIN in my book).

Check-in was quick, and the facilities were quiet & very clean.

It was a nice place to stop driving from California to Idaho.

Great Primitive Site

Though the turn off is a bit hard to spot when it gets dark, the sites on Wee Thump Rd are very nice. Gorgeous views of mountains and Joshua Trees as far as the eye can see. The spot we were at had a nice little stone fire pit and was very clean save for a couple of shell casings and bottle caps.…

Nice spot for a day or two

Plenty of room, camp right next to the lake. Great spot for a day or two. Not far off the hwy so you can hear vehicles but it's not to bad.

Spaced but not entirely secluded

Google maps did a great job getting us to the area. Not far from I-15. Several sites along the 2/10 dirt road. Plenty of space for RVs down to tents. Most sites looked level and had rock fire pits. Several sites were occupied so the secret is out. Beautiful sunrise.

Easy access from I-15

This place is about 6 miles off I-15 on paved road. When you turn off the paved road it is only half a mile to spacious level sites. No amenities. 5G Verizon. Very secluded.

Great stop for the night

We drive a 25' Class C. We needed to take showers, dump our tanks, and do laundry. This place was perfect. As others said, it's all self check-in. Because we are over 22 feet, the park required that we take a pull through spot for $40. The park was very clean, the laundry room was very clean,…
