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.

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.

Perfect

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.

July 4th Weekends

Had a great time celebrating the 4th. Ft Churchill staff had an old time type of celebration. Fun activities for the entire family.
