great spot on the way thru nevada

stopped one night here on our way thru nevada. arrived around 7pm and there were still quite a few spots available. we were in spot #18, which is apparently usually booked. it was gorgeous and pretty level, tucked away from other sites in an aspen grove. the campground is pretty minimal with vault…

Amazing setting 20 minutes from I-80

Water is usually available, but not during out stay. Amazing setting with lots of hiking nearby. About halfway between Lake Tahoe and Yellowstone.

Lush, Green and Serene

Compared to the surround areas, this place was truly an oasis in the desert as others have said. The hosts were super nice. One can see that they have put some work into this campground to make it so nice and pleasant. We were very glad that we made a two night reservation. This is a great place…

Fun Day Trip!

Great day trip to the hot springs. Brought the dogs & let the run to have a blast. Went in the AM and barely had anyone around. That changed as we progressed into the afternoon (note this was on a Saturday).

Know the road in is really bad so you’ll need a high clearance vehicle. Or you can do…

Winner

A lovingly tended oasis in the i80 desert. A year round creek, walking path, cows to wake up to, mountain views. On the way to California but the kids asked if we could just spend our vacation here 😂 Charming hosts brought us warm homemade muffins in the morning ...!

Great spot by the creek

Clean, pretty spot by the creek. Which is nice and warm from the spring. And a short walk for a dip in the hotspring.

Rough road but worth it

Free/dispersed only. The hot spring is amazing and worth going as far as you can down a very rough road. We camped right next to the warm creek, about a quarter mile before the hot spring and walked to the spring several times a day. There were days when we had the spring all to ourselves, weekends…

This place is amazing

The hot spring water temp is perfect. There’s plenty of room though when I went there were few people there. The road out is pretty rough - you’ll need clearance though I made it in my Subaru Forester. So glad I came here.

A lovely little spot in the hills

This a pleasant little camping spot in the hills outside of Wells. There isn't a lot of privacy; camping spots are clustered around stands of aspens dotted along the hillside. And it can be a little crowded because there are very few NFS campgrounds in this part of Nevada. But its pretty, clean,…

Grassy oasis on the way across Nevada

Grass everywhere! In a desert environment. Clean and functional showers and bathroom. Very inexpensive to park on the grass and throw up a tent or sleep out. I-80 noise is ever present so be prepared. Street facade is not as nice as the reality inside so go for it.

Great star viewing

Really beautiful area but not much privacy between sites. We stayed there 2x, once during week and once on weekend which was noisy after dark. Star viewing was outstanding!!  Lots of coyotes howling at night, I loved that. We had trouble knowing ahead of time which first come slots were open.…

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.

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…
