Beautiful tent camping site from BLM

I happened upon this campground by accident and so happy about it. There is a sign warning that the grounds are not suitable for RV or trailers so it's perfect for tent campers wanting to get away from that. The campground is set just off the highway leading to Spring Valley State Park. It is a small campground but is surrounded by untouched natural beauty. All of the sites have picnic tables (not covered), fire pits and grills for cooking. The sites are pretty good sized and set far enough away from each other to give plenty of privacy. There are tent pads at some sites but all sites seemed level and spacious. There's easy access to the bathrooms. Bring in your water as there is no access.

Must check this out for fall camping

As with many of the other NV state parks, this campground offers covered picnic tables, flushable toilets and free showers. There are fire rings and grills for cooking at each site. The sites are good size for tent camping and most have tent pads that are level. The abundance of trees gives each site plenty of privacy although there were only 4 other campers there when we visited. There is easy access to the bathroom and the rservoir is only a short walk away.

Small sites but the park is amazing

This campground has super small sites that are close together and offer little to no "camp privacy". I would say that this is more of an RV/trailer friendly campground than tent-friendly. There are tent pads at a couple of the sites. Each site offers fire rings, grills and covered picnic tables. There is flushable toilets and free showers available which is super nice.

The more we explored this park, the more awesome things we found. Close to the day use area, there is a horseshoe pit and a very nice volleyball court. There are a couple short hikes super close to the campground also, that offer beautiful views of the fall foliage. I highly suggest visiting this in the Fall as the colors were amazing.

Small, busy campground surrounded by beautiful landscapes

This campground is super busy in the fall. We arrived at approx 3 pm and there were only 3 sites available. Within the next 20 minutes, the entire campground was full. The next day, as people left, people filled the spots. The sites are really small and close together. There are fire rings at every site, but grills at about half of them. Our site didn't have a grill, but we managed ok. The awesome thing about this campground is that there are electric hookups at every site, which was very convenient for charging the phone, iPad and charge box! Wifi is available for a small fee which was awesome also! The bathrooms were very clean and heated, and even had a free shower!

The nature hike to the slit canyons was super short and the kids loved exploring the caves!

Beautiful but no fire rings

In most senses, this camp ground is great. Sunset View offers a beautiful setting, a camper service sink, flushable toilets and drinkable water. The only downside for me is the no burning except charcoal and propane stovetops. No fire rings is a no-go for me.

Amazing Views, Clean Facilities

The road to Zapata Falls is super rough but passenger cars shouldn't have any problem as long as you keep it slow. The campground itself is zigzagged along the hillside. There are big firepits, picnic tables and bearsafe lockers for your food at every site. Some sites have tarps laid out where ideal tent sites are. There are multiple RV sites as well. The camp host is super friendly and does a good job upkeeping the grounds. The is no water access and pit-toilets. There is hand sanitizer in every bathroom though. Just a heads up, the country store down the road towards Great Sand Dunes was closed for the season when we visited, so make sure you have plenty of ice and gas.

Remote getaway from civilization

This campground is super remote and offers 4 primitive campsites. There are pit toilets and no accessible water. The river runs directly behind camp and trails run through the hills. If you're lucky, you will come across the herd of elk roaming the grounds. There are amazing petroglyphs a short drive down the road. The Dinosaur Nat'l Monument Quarry Visitors Center is approx 45 minutes away but completely worth the drive. Make sure your gas tank is full as there is no cell reception at the campsite.

Beautiful scenery and fantastic fishing

This campground is surrounded by natural beauty. Snow capped mountains hang in the distance. The site is super clean and has flushable toilets and a non-fee shower. There are trails from camp to the water. Make sure to bring your fishing poles because chances are you will catch a good-sized trout. There is a daily limit of 1 fish, but this reservoir is known for trophy-sized bass and trout so that's all you need. Temps dropped to the mid-teens so be prepared if tent camping. There are horseshoe pits available and there is also an ADA compliant site also.

Excellent Dark Sky Retreat

This campground exceeded our expectations on many levels. Don't let the arid scenery fool you on your drive toward the park as there is plenty of shade at most of the campsites. Upon our arrival, we were greeted by a herd of mule-tail deer! There are 14 campsites available with a few of them with RV access. We were there mid-week so there weren't more than 3 other campers there during our stay. The established tent areas were grated and level. Our 5-person tent fit perfectly in the designated space between the trees. The picnic area was covered and clean. There were a few nails available to hang our lanterns. We chose to leave the rain guard off and enjoyed viewing the galaxy from inside, stargazing and watching satellites fly across the sky all night. It definitely cools off at night, with temps dropping to upper 40s in mid-September. The bathrooms were pit stalls, but they were very clean and maintained.

Aside from the excellent condition of the campgrounds, there are a few hiking trails available and an old mining ghost town that the kids loved exploring. The fossil house was closed when we were there, but the park ranger sought us out and offered to open it up for us to visit, which was awesome!

The only downside to our trip here, was someone stole our National Park pass while we were on a short hike to the cemetery. I guess the lesson learned is no matter how few people are around, always lock your vehicle.
