Take 305 south from Battle Mountain 20 miles. You’ll see the Mill Creek Recreation Area sign and turn left/ East. When you get to the stop sign, turn right. A couple of miles further and you’ll veer right at the entrance to the park. There are a number of level campsites near the creek, with BBQ and fire pits. There are two bathrooms, one on each end of the park. We were here on a Thursday in November and only one other camper in the park. For dark sky enthusiasts, this place is awesome. No services.
This was a great campground for free! Stayed here one night. About 10 tent spots and there were more for rvs. Each had a picnic table and grill. Pit toilet close by and great views!
Came in for a late arrival but was nearly the only ones there in July. The sites were well marked. The vault toilets were clean and well maintained. It may have just been the site we picked in the dark, but the ground was a bit rutted and uneven for the tent and the tent footprint we had (4-6 person) actually was quite a bit larger than the flat spot so the stakes ended up in the weeds. We did get to see a fair amount of wildlife including marmots, turkeys, jackrabbits, and coyotes.
