4 Reviews of Water Canyon
Nice free campground where they are sparse

It is about 5 miles south of Winnemucca in a canyon with camping on both sides of the gravel road. The road is in great condition. Campsites are simple: picnic table and fire pit. Ours was along the stream and across from the vault toilet and dumpster. We were there mid week in mid October and it was quiet after day use people left. We had some smaller colorful boulders at our site. The stream was soothing and the aspens/willows were colorful. All amenities in Winnemucca.

I accidentally chose yes for sanitary dump. This is wrong.

Nice, quiet, campground

Great campground in a surprisingly green area.  Sites are well layed out and sit right next to a small creek.  Nice play to stay when driving through Nevada.

Beautiful campsites. Nice area. Quiet and green.

free camping. peaceful trails. wildlife.

Black Rock Desert (near Sulphur)

This review is for Black Rock Desert, a BLM area to the West of this campground. As home to the famed Burning Man festival, its usually a serene desert when its not crowded with the Burning Man's 50,000 festival-goers. You can still see wagon tracks here from the Oregon trail! Word to the wise: there are no established campgrounds, but free camping is allowed throughout the park (probably why it's not on this site). One thing some people get confused by is that the sculptures that you've seen photos of are not permanent installations, they are only there during the festival-time.
