Great little campground

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.

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.

Great for a single night stop

We only stayed for a single night, but have no complaints. The staff were really friendly for bookings and check in. The park was nice and well maintained. We would definitely stay again if we are passing through Reno.

THIS is a nice RV PARK but not Disperse camping!

I am looking for Disperse camping; (Boon-docking) (DRY Camping) (no hook-ups)
RV parks and camp grounds are showing up. This APP needs help and people need to know what they are saying is Dispersed camping vs RV PARKS. 

I did not stay here so I can not grade it, but is does look nice for a PAID RV PARK!

Great place!

We enjoyed our short stay here. We were able to do laundry. The bathrooms were very clean. The WiFi was okay. The grounds are very nice and the staff are too! Very happy campers

False Advertising

They advertise as having sites for tent camping as well as dispersed camping. This is inaccurate and should be changed.

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!
