city mouse turning country mouse 🛸

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.

A well considered gravel lot...

and sometimes that is all you need.

This is a gravel lot behind a hotel near a freeway near a train and refinery. After hours registration was available - the usual form and money in an envelope and dropbox deal. Got a small discount for AAA. $29 for an electric only spot. I was able to use credit card for the fee by writing my number on the form. They emailed me a receipt by request in the morning which was nice. It had details on the wifi password and bathroom codes even tho the bathrooms were not locked when we rolled in at midnight (thank god).

On the friday night we rolled in the place seemed really full - most of the full hookup + cable spots seemed taken but luckily there were a handful of the electric only spots which are directly behind the registration office.

Bathrooms and showers are very clean. You can hear the freeway and smell the refinery somewhat. It was rather cool at night with a slight breeze and in the morning / afternoon it got hot and windy.

I would stay here again.

Works in a pinch

Eh we needed somewhere to stop and this was on the way and they let your register after hours. We showed up on at 1am and were able to find a walk up spot. Lots of the reservable spots were open but not sure if we could park there if they were unoccupied at than point. $33 for one night including the out of state fee. Bathrooms and showers seems clean-ish but they were pretty old. Freeway sounds were quite loud. Not exactly a peaceful destination but still much better than a parking lot.

Super cute!

This place is huge. We pulled in very late on a Weds night / Thursday morning. Self registration at the front. Looked like a decent amount of folks here but we didn’t drive very far into the park. If you take a look at the PDF maps on their website you can see how vast the places is with 122 spots! Bummed we needed to keep driving the next day- was very tempted to stay another night.

Shower house and bathrooms were really nice! Wasn’t expecting to want to take a shower but couldn’t pass up the opportunity when we saw them. Very hot water.

There are picnic benches everywhere and fire pits. 10/10 - would stay again!
