WAY too expensive for what you get. Service is surly and monosyllabic. Forget about getting level; it ain't happening. No wifi and no cellular service. No shade and nothing to do. You're better off getting something in town (Ely). - Old Mountain Man

Looking for a full hookup while passing through. Really good value for the money. No pull-throughs available but I found a back in that accommodated my 65' combo. As others have stated, sites are not level but not a problem for me - I'm equipped with hydraulic jacks. Although really old and dated looking, the 50 amp service was outstanding, stable and 124v per leg. Check-in was fast and informative, with a complimentary margarita if desired. Restaurant open till midnight. Cool little motorcycle museum near the front desk, and many items of interest on display around the premises (prospecting gear, old farm equipment, wagons, etc.) Good value. - tikivic

We stay here on the average of twice a year. We stay southbound to Vegas area in November and northbound on May to the Northwest. Always Enjoy it and have never had any problems here. We always meet interesting people and have even run into friends, from the past, there. Good Place to stay and you can't beat the rates! Only problem we ever encountered was from someone who didn't know how to drive a motorhome, in particular a 40' not very well, but received a couple of suggestions graciously. - Corvettemaniac

Gravel area with back in and pull thrus that is part of the motel/casino. Good for overnight stay when passing through. First come first serve. Tight maneuvering to get to sites but very doable with some care. Come in off highway at motel entrance and take a tight right, tight left and then tight right to get to RV sites. Or take gravel street before motel/casino/rv park when coming from the north or after when coming from the south. You will still have tight turns but one less. Park your rig in any empty site, setup and then register at front desk of motel. We had a pull thru that was able to accommodate our 66' motorhome/towed combo but just barely. Wifi from the motel is available but kept loosing the connection on my computer but my wife had no problem on her tablet. Speed is what you would expect at an RV park. Verizon phone signal was great; data not so great. Slower than motel wifi. Satellite TV fine as it is basically all open. At registration they will give you a key to get in side door next to RV park to use the pool and hot tub. We did not use so can't comment on condition. - Ramblin On

We loved our stay at Lake View Campground. It is closer to the lake but only one or two sites actually get a view! It is tight fit. We have a 26ft TT and only a handful of sites would accommodate us. We stayed at site 28 and it was perfect! Just far enough away from others and it backed up to the forest for the kids to explore. There were a few spots open when we arrived on a Thursday at Lake View but completely full by the weekend. We loved the layout of the site and the gorgeous views. Bathroom was clean but we didn't use the showers. - BiroClan

Lovely place, very peaceful, lots of good walking areas. Very clean. Almost deserted in mid-week in mid-September. We dry camped in middle of three paved parking areas, the one below the dam. We paid the fee, but I'm not sure I should have.
Do not try to get into Lake View Campground in anything longer than 30'! Much too tight and there are major tree problems throughout.
I did not try the Elk Flat Campground because dirt road was too rough for our coach. - bobcovey

Did an overnight here en route to CA and was very pleased. I checked out both the Lake View and the Elk Creek campgrounds. Lake View was full so I settled my tent into Elk Flat. This state park exceeded my expectations. Very clean and in excellent repair. Nice plumbed restrooms and showers. Showers are free but you have to push the button very hard and often. Beautiful scenery from my site. Couldn't ask for a better overnight for a tent or small RV. Neither campground is big rig friendly. Lake View is very tight. Elk Flat is better for parking and leveling. Both campgrounds offer large private sites. Didn't seen any trail heads but I didn't ask. Lots of people fishing at the lake. Would camp here again. - NT2013

Stayed 3 nights and road noise was difficult to deal with. Park is fine for an overnight. For groceries go into Ely to Ridleys Family , it's a big bright and well stocked store. Even found Coconut Cream and green curry paste. - JanneC

What a find! While many of the residents seem to be permanent, the park is clean and well-kept. The laundry room was spacious and spotless. Wide interior roads. Unfortunately, the interstate is on one side and a train track on the other, so noise could be a problem for some. It was not an issue for us. - rfmscat

We've travelled extensively throughout the nation and full-timed it for two years, and this is probably the nicest BLM campground we've ever been to. It looks brand new. The sites vary, but most are spacious, and there is an "RV" section as well, although smaller units can easily fit in lots of the other sites. There are hiking trails all over and a bunch of group sites as well as a huge extra parking lot. Site had a picnic table, tent pad, barbecue, and even a side table next to the bbq! It's about 6 miles SW of Ely and set far enough back off Route 6 that it was super quiet. The camp fee is $8/night, $4 with the Senior Pass. Can't beat it! I wouldn't consider staying anywhere else in the area unless I HAD to have hookups. - Pdxjoanne

I would say this is about a 7.5 RV park. The positives were the access roads were really wide to get into your spot, and the trees provided some nice shade. We were in spot # 44. I don't like gravel road RV parks, because of the dust, but the dust did not seem to kick up while we were here? - Vipermanden

This was a one nite stay on our road trip and for that it was ok. The park is large and some sites were quite spacious (ours was). The utilities are ok but the 50 amp outlet was badly cracked. The sites look fairly level but we ran out of jacks in front before we leveled up. I noticed the next morning when I took the trash that the majority of the rigs on the front row were blocked up pretty high. The folks in the office were pleasant. My biggest complaint was the dust. Anytime anybody drove through it kicked up a cloud of dust. All in all an ok place with no real issues. - 3browns

My wife and I called while on the road at around two P.M. reserving for two nights. We wanted to take our grandson on a tour through the caverns at Great Basin National Park. After arriving at about four p.m. we checked on the internet to reserve tour tickets only to find that absolutely none were available. I went immediately to the office to cancel the second night---only to be told that it would be impossible due to their cancellation policy. I might add that we actually got the last space available for the first night, so they were clearly not hurting for campers. I will never stay here again, and it will definitely color my thoughts about other KOAs. - Heaviside
