In an open setting with pinyon-juniper forest at Bob Scott Summit. Hunting for deer and elk in season. Fishing at Birch Creek, 8 miles from campground. 9 units and 1 group.
It is a small first come first serve campground right off of the road. We arrived at 6pm and found it unexpectedly busy. We were fortunate enough to get the last site!
We could hear every car that passed in the night but other than that it is a great place to stop at the end of a long day.
Just outside Austin in the beautiful Pinyon Juniper forest in Humboldt-Toiyabe National Forest. It’s right off the two lane road so you’ll have some road sounds. It was a perfect stop at the end of a day driving with a nice variety of campsites to choose from, toilets and water. The landscape here is sweeping and stunning. You could set up camp and drive into the lovely town of Austin for a bite to eat or other provisions. I was tent camping and there were a couple on motorcycles and two RVs.
Exactly half way between Great Basin National Park and the California border. Arrived late at night and there were plenty of available sites.
We pulled in to this campground at 10pm and found one site left the night before labor day! It has a vault toilet as well as a flush toilet. Garbage cans and water pumps. There are fire pits at most spots and picnic tables at each one. A good amount of trees. Cicadas were really loud at night but it was nice. Ground was somewhat soft. Apparently good hunting nearby too.
