    Caliente, Nevada

    Kershaw-Ryan State Park, nestled near Caliente, NV, is a gem for campers looking for a mix of natural beauty and convenient amenities. This campground offers a peaceful retreat with electric and water hookups at many sites, making it a comfortable spot for both tent and RV campers. The sites are spacious and clean, though they can be a bit close to each other. However, end sites provide a bit more privacy.

    The park itself is a haven for nature lovers. The trails are perfect for a leisurely hike, and dogs are welcome to join you. The campground is also a great base for exploring the surrounding area, especially if you're into rockhounding or local history. The views are stunning, with mountains and desert landscapes providing a picturesque backdrop.

    One of the standout features here is the cleanliness and quality of the facilities. The bathrooms are well-maintained, and the showers, which require a quarter for four minutes, offer good water pressure and privacy. There's also a little free library for those who enjoy a good book by the campfire, and firewood is available for a donation.

    Families will appreciate the shaded park area, complete with a playground and a wading pool for the kids. The picnic areas are perfect for a relaxing meal under the trees. For those who enjoy stargazing, the lack of city lights makes for an incredible night sky.

    While cell service can be spotty, especially for T-Mobile users, the campground does offer WiFi for a fee. Just be prepared for a bit of a digital detox. Overall, Kershaw-Ryan State Park is a fantastic spot for a quiet, scenic camping experience with plenty of amenities to keep you comfortable.

    Back in 1990 we decided to aspire to the surrounding area and embrace what this town of Rachel was really all about during this period in history. Thus the name of the Little A'Le'Inn was born. Some believe the name to sound like an inn that serves ale (ale inn), while others believe it to mean alien. We leave this up to you to decide. We like the sounds of both.

    There are so many memories, so many wonderful people, and so many good times that have been had here in our little establishment. Thank you all for what you have allowed us to do here. This has been my life's dream. Some of those who have shared this dream have passed on and will be remembered forever each and everyday as we pass through the Little A'Le'Inn's front doorway on our way ...... to serve you.

    Look up as the truth lies there. Always keep your eyes to the skies whenever you can. You just never know when that special event will happen. At those times there may be no answers, leaving you only to wonder what just happened or what you saw, and having to ask more questions... getting no answers. Life is a mystery, enjoy the ride.

    The events and unidentified flying objects we see and only hear at times in this area often leave us shaking our heads. The unknown is what we live for. The times when logic escapes us and the knowledge of things to come are before us. We welcome it all.

    RV space RV space with water and electrical standard RV type 30 amp power hookups. Note: We do not have a hook up or dump tank for waste materials.

    Alamo, Nevada

    Nevada's public lands are open to camping. There is no fee for dispersed, primitive camping, but there is a limit to the number of days one may camp in the same location. Dispersed, primitive camping is camping where there are no developed amenities such as water or toilets. Primitive campers are asked to follow the "Leave No Trace" land use ethics. Dispersed camping in a motorhome is allowed, but dumping black or gray water on public lands isn't allowed. Some campground are established that requires a fee to manage it.

    A person may not occupy undeveloped public lands or designated sites or areas for more than 14 days within a 28 consecutive day period. Following the 14 days, a person and their personal property must relocate to a site outside of at least a 25 mile radius from the occupied site for a period of 14 days.

      Area 51 Stake Out - Dreamland Camp

      Wide open desert with history. In the 1800s the area was prospected for lead and silver. It was also used as farmland decades ago, and now is infamous for it's world class night skies and Area 51 air force installation. Although you can see planes taking off towards the Nellis Bombing Range, or see jetfighter training exercises or even test flights, the US Government still hasn't acknowledged the existence of the facility... that you are not allowed to enter. This is also a UFO hotspot and required visiting for those that believe Earth may have visitors.

      This land means a lot to a lot of different people. For some, it means peace from city life. For others, it is the perfect setting for reflection on your life. Many find it to be the kind of adventurous or challenging tent camping they've sought. You'd be foolish not to count yourself among those the photographers, amateur astronomers, or souls that enjoy the continental United States' "darkest skies" with the least amount of light pollution in this part of the world. Some simply like camping and getting free air shows. Finally, if you enjoy UFO stories or stories of our men in black, there is an itinerary for you here that nowhere else can provide. This area is on many "independent researchers" must-visit list.

      If all that weren't enough, there is an indescribable feeling of bedding down for the night in this valley. Maybe 100% of people don't feel it, but so many past visitors who have spent the night near the Extraterrestrial Highway (the real name of Nevada State Route 395 that this land is accessible from) can vouch for it.
