Looked nice, kinda pricey

We came through at 10pm on a Saturday and they had zero vacancy. Looks like after hours registration is possible if they aren’t booked up. I saw a hot tub area. Super sad we didn’t make reservations ahead of time!

A Hotel / Casino with RV spots

We rolled into Elko on a Saturday night and tried a few different RV parks that were either full up or overpriced. Gold Country had a spot available for $27 with AAA discount ($30 without) and it was either this or the Walmart parking lot. The two other RV places down the street were $50 a night.

All their 22 spaces are mainly in the back parking lot of the hotel and “back in” only - not pull through. We had a trailer so ideal. We ended up pulling into the space at night and then backing up and out of the spot in the morning.

I saw a security guard walking the grounds at night while i was waking my pup and it did help me feel a bit more secure since we were hauling a uhaul trailer.

Bathrooms were dated but seemed clean. We decided not to shower in then tho. We were almost to our destination and they were a bit too… something. Two stalls, two showers in the ladies room.

The lot we were next to looked like they had been there a while as they had a whole yard setup with fencing for their small dogs and potted plants. Some local flavor.

Wifi was for hotel guests only, not the RV folks.

Beautiful little campground

The owners, Steve and Nancy, have done a lot with this little campground to make it so beautiful and well kept. There were tree swings, benches along a stream, a garden, and beautiful vistas. The spots are mostly grass, which is nice. It’s a true diamond in the rough.

Gorgeous and quiet

Half way up mountain with small number of sites divided in 3 loops that make the number feel smaller. Most sites are nestled into their own cove in the trees. Short drive/hike to alpine lake. Only complaint was 2 of the 3 water spouts didn’t work.

Gorgeous lake up in the mountains

Surprisingly beautiful site, right outside of Wells, in Northern Nevada.   The actual camp sites are small and relatively close to one another, but it's beautiful up in the mountains the lake is absolutely gorgeous.  Good place to fish, swim or kayak.

Breathtaking views, great camping

It’s a windy road with a dead drop on the outside lane to a very high canyon with no guard rail… but it was SO worth it! The campsites are open, but separated by bushes and the hill that they’re naturally built on, bathrooms are very clean and the view is just out of this world.

There were a bunch of people fishing in the early hours while we headed to the small hike up to the waterfall above Angel Lake. There were other trailheads that we didn’t get to as well, but hope to explore on future trips!

The lake itself was cool, clear, and refreshing to swim in! Many were kayaking and paddle boarding, and it was a relaxing environment all around with very friendly people. We can’t wait to go back!

Beautiful Scenery and Quiet

Stunning view of the Ruby Mountains from the campground. Both loops have easy access to the vault toilets and dumpsters. There is water at the main entrance but it’s a hand pump. The only drawbacks are that the sites are not very level and it would be difficult to get a rig longer than 30 feet into most of the sites.

Tabor Creek Campground

20 miles of dirt road road puts you fairly remote. If you don’t mind a few washboards for a $2 a night stay it is well worth the travel. Past an old homestead that was over a hundred years old, not far from 12 mile hot springs and the Jarbidge Wilderness. Great trails leaving camp where you could hike and use ATVs all day without running out of country to explore. Campground was quiet and had only 1 other group camped up higher. Lower spots have willows, upper spots have a few aspens with all spots right next to a creek that was running in late summer that you can hear running from your camp. Green, mowed grass which was nice. Tables could use a refinish and one site actually had a table in the creek. Did not go in any of the three bathrooms stretched along the creek but I would guess they could use some TLC due to the lack of management presence. No fires were allowed in the fire pits due to fire season but it had rained for 2 nights and no one from the BLM had changed the restriction. No cell phone service. No WiFi. Pack out you own trash and waste water. No water available. For $2 a night with endless country to explore it isn’t bad at all.

Clean, reasonably priced

Clean, easy access but far enough off highway to reduce noise, friendly, reasonable.

We didn’t stay hete

We drove through this gravel parking lot smashed behind a hotel. It looked very run down and unappealing so we decided not to stay there. Train tracks behind the site with trains that go through all night (stayed in a nearby place with same problem).
