A lovely little spot in the hills

This a pleasant little camping spot in the hills outside of Wells. There isn't a lot of privacy; camping spots are clustered around stands of aspens dotted along the hillside. And it can be a little crowded because there are very few NFS campgrounds in this part of Nevada. But its pretty, clean, and well managed.

Amazing

A hidden gem amongst Nevada’s desert.

Great star viewing

Really beautiful area but not much privacy between sites. We stayed there 2x, once during week and once on weekend which was noisy after dark. Star viewing was outstanding!!  Lots of coyotes howling at night, I loved that. We had trouble knowing ahead of time which first come slots were open. Toilets were clean.I would go again.

Gorgeous and quiet

Half way up mountain with small number of sites divided in 3 loops that make the number feel smaller. Most sites are nestled into their own cove in the trees. Short drive/hike to alpine lake. Only complaint was 2 of the 3 water spouts didn’t work.

Beautiful Scenery and Quiet

Stunning view of the Ruby Mountains from the campground. Both loops have easy access to the vault toilets and dumpsters. There is water at the main entrance but it’s a hand pump. The only drawbacks are that the sites are not very level and it would be difficult to get a rig longer than 30 feet into most of the sites.

awesome!

This is 6,200 foot elevation 8 miles outside Wells, Nevada. Peaceful camping in an aspen grove with fire pits, toilet, trash receptacle. If you’re a birder it’s got high desert birds, raptors. I saw my first Lewis’s woodpecker, watched a Harrier hunting, a flock of soaring, bug eating Common Nighthawks, deer everywhere. Stunning views of the terrain. Designated tent pitching squares, kinda rocky but fine with a protective footprint.

Overnight stay

Beautiful location. Close enough to the highway to stay here on a road trip but far enough that the only sounds I noticed at night were the deer or elk in the area
