Roughing it in nature

Great place for friends and family to meet. Much nicer with a higher water level.

Sand and wind

Be careful!!! Almost got stuck in the sand while trying to find a spot level enough to park. Many people had dug out around their trailer to get the slides out. Several people used construction generators to power their rigs. Stayed for a weekend. Had a hard time leaving the trailer due to sand in the wind flying at high rates of speed. No hook ups, they do have a dump station and community water faucets. Vault toilets in many locations, no designated camping spaces. Just find a spot where you fit.

Stars galore, easy access, clean setting

Rye Patch SRA is the perfect layover spot when driving through NV.  There are sites for tent camping, rv camping with and without hookups, and group camping that I saw.  I have made a video that shows the fee schedule (make sure to pay or you will get fined), the sites, etc.  Hope you find it helpful.

Cell reception with Verizon is spotty…

The Slow Jams...

It's a reservoir with a lot of RVs, 4x4s that have driven up to the lakeside, and an outdoor stage was cranking music just a few miles away.

It wasn't a bad place to stop, however, on the drive from Nor Cal (away from the fires and smoke) on the way to Yellowstone. People were kayaking and fishing, and a few had some classic 1990s slow jams to set the mood (if that's your thing).

A family friendly place that's worth a stop in the middle of the Nevada desert.

Does the job...

Sites are basic, which is fine by me. Sites are spread out and you have privacy from your neighbors. Sites have a picnic bench and a fire pit. There are Porta potties.

Today 9/14/2020 extremely smoky air from surrounding fires. Pesky annoying swarming bugs in the evening.

We had a hard time finding entrance

You must go through the main entrance to the Fort Churchill historical site to enter this campground. DO NOT drive down the gravel road that runs along the river. There is no camping at the historical site, only in Samuel Buckland Campground. It’s very nicely laid out, with some pull through and back in spots. No hook ups, vault toilets. $5 firewood at the Fort Churchill entrance, but no burning allowed at this time. We were nicely surprised to have water spigots at the sites (not hook ups). First come first served $15 per night and very quiet at night for a good sleep. Verizon cell service was not good.


This is the perfect hidden lake down in the canyon. A very beautiful spot for fishing, deer and turkey watching. The sites aren’t right on top of each other, and they allow plenty of space for each site. This is definitely on my list to come back to.

Nice little oasis

We stayed here twice as a layover on our Yellowstone trip from the Bay Area. Great spot with plenty of space.

There are really four areas you can stay. The East River is strictly for tents. West River has about 15-20 campsites with tables and cement pads that support RVs. Nice shade on all of these sites. There are also two sites that don’t have shade but have electric hookups (for an additional $10). The reservoir side has RV parking along the ridge and more legit campsites back a bit further. Lastly, there are big open gravel lots you can park the RV in if all else fails.

We saw lots of people fishing in the river, just off the spillway. Others were swimming and floating down the river in a tube. Plenty of swimming on the reservoir side as well as a nice little beach.

It’s only 2 miles off the freeway but there wasn’t much noise.

We stayed here twice on our trip (there and back) in a 31’ RV. Decent service on the reservoir side with T-Mobile. Not so much on the river side.

Really nice spot!

We showed up at 730 pm on a Saturday in June and while every official spot was taken the ranger encouraged us to find a spot in one of a couple overflow lots. There was plenty of space and we settled in for the night.

The creek campsite looks great. The toilets were clean. It wasn’t noisy at night at all, and the sunset was outstanding.

Alternate free camping next to the state park!

Since COVID has closed all state and national parks to camping, we were happy to find this BLM land for an overnight. There are no services and the ground is a little bumpy/sandy but we were able to get around just fine in our camper van. There was a makeshift fire ring at our site, but it was so windy and dry brush everywhere that we didn't want to attempt to use it.

We for service on both Verizon and Sprint! Had some coyotes track around our van over night so make sure you keep everything inside!
