If you like 💩 this place is for you!

I’ll give it two stars because this place is free, but in this park a great deal of it has an enormous amount of cow and horse poop. Now, we are from the country, so we aren’t afraid of a little livestock poop, but this campground possesses about 1 turd per square foot. That’s a little excessive…

Desert Camping with Creek

Great campground alongside a beautiful little creek. Cottonwood trees provide shade. Pit toilets, garbage cans, fire pits and picnic tables are provided.

Convenient, peaceful and free

Perfect place for an overnight rest on the way through Nevada. Only about 4 miles off of NV 305 on a well graded gravel road. Vault toilets, picnic tables, fire pits all in good condition. Oh, and a little babbling brook running behind the sites to whisper you to sleep.

Quiet, Pretty Campground

 We stayed here in December and it was completely empty which made it a little eerie. There was snow on the ground so we stayed at a site closest to the entrance/exit in case it snowed more and we had trouble getting the Cricket out.(It didn't snow and we were fine.) 

It is a pretty campground…

Beautiful, clean, quiet

Stillwater NWR has a number of designated dispersed camping sites with pit toilets and trash bins. Free. All dirt roads but roads are OK. When we were there in April/May 2020, we were the only ones camping in the Refuge. Camped on Division Rd.

All sites were clean and quiet. Level. Some of the…

Volume: Zero Site Availability: Plenty Stars: Plentiful Cows: Definitely!

We pulled in at midnight not knowing what we were getting ourselves into. It’s about a 15 min drive down a dark but very smooth gravel road. When we arrived it was clean, there were plenty of sites available, it was super…

Great night skies

Nice quiet location near Battle Mountain to rest for the night and enjoy really beautiful night sky. Our experience was very quiet with only three other people there. The creek is mostly dried out but provides a nice ambient noise. Really clean restrooms but not much else to do.

If you’re in the mood

This is a pretty little campground that was empty on a Friday night in mid July. Why? Because it’s 100 degrees and the bushes/small trees barely provide any shade. Also the creek has dried up. But there are toilets and the price is right.

Close to Battle Mountain, easy to get to

As said before, 20 miles S of Battle Mountain, and about 3-4 miles off NV-305. I camped there June 21, with only 1 other tenter. More shade & a pit toilet on the up-side(east). Beautiful little creek flowing by to chill the drinks. AMAZING dark skies at night.

  • Sunset from the table.
  • Took a stroll to the entrance & looking back towards camp.

Secluded campground

Take 305 south from Battle Mountain 20 miles. You’ll see the Mill Creek Recreation Area sign and turn left/ East. When you get to the stop sign, turn right. A couple of miles further and you’ll veer right at the entrance to the park. There are a number of level campsites near the creek, with BBQ…

Free Camping Desert Style

This was a great campground for free! Stayed here one night. About 10 tent spots and there were more for rvs. Each had a picnic table and grill. Pit toilet close by and great views!

Secluded, clean, quiet but smaller campsites

Came in for a late arrival but was nearly the only ones there in July. The sites were well marked. The vault toilets were clean and well maintained. It may have just been the site we picked in the dark, but the ground was a bit rutted and uneven for the tent and the tent footprint we had (4-6…
