You are up on a summit so the only thing to cut down the wind if it gets windy is the stand of trees that the campground is situated in. There are pit toilets and water hydrants. I think that there are 14 campsites in all. I went on a Monday durning Peak season. There were at least five sites to choose from. Picnic tables and fire rings were at every site along with a large flat area for your tent. There are a few hikes nearby so it’s nice to be so close to so many trailheads.
First to Review
Very nice campground with tent sites and walk-ins. Water, bathrooms, fire pits, picnic tables, and food lockers. Walk-ins have beautiful views of Mount Rose and downtown Reno. Hiking trails, mountain biking, snowboarding, etc. Nearby Relay Peak and Mt Rose summit are great hikes. First come first serve.
