Dry campground, "Dispersed". Just find a spot and park. Good views of the lake. There are a few others camping here, all are hundreds of yards apart. Good place to spend the night. We camped at Twenty Mile Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a pretty, dispersed camping location. Several sites of various sizes around either the paved road or dirt roads. Be very careful of soft sand down by the shoreline. Although this is listed almost everywhere on the Internet as a free campground there is actually an official fee of $4/night ($22/week) to stay here (50% off with senior pass). No indication (at all) of this at 20-Mile, but if you drive back to Sportsman's Beach you'll see the pay station & fee info listed there. Good Verizon signal & very pretty lake views. On site trash & pit toilet. Some highway noise from 95 depending on where you park. We camped at Twenty Mile Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

Peaceful with great views of Walker Lake. Great place to dry camp. 20 Mile is on the east end of the lake. If you are in a big rig, after turning into 20 Mile, be sure and turn left at the cross road. You'll come to a nice pull out spot on the lake side or you can continue to the end of the road for another nice spot. There is room to turn around a big rig at either spot. The only drawback when we were there was lots of flies. There's laundromat in Hawthorne (Rock by the River Motel) and a NAPA. We were in a 40' RV with toad. We camped at Twenty Mile Beach Campground in a Motorhome.

Only one other RVer here. Noise from truck traffic on highway 95. Driving south on 95, there is no left turn lane. I kept track of the miles from Schurz, 15 miles, and made sure no traffic was in back of me. Several good areas for passing driving south, to let big rigs by so that when slowing down for left turn, there shouldn't be any traffic behind your RV. Vault toilet and dumpster. Lots of ducks on Walker lake. Nice views. At turn-around, there is a rock fire pit there, though a big rig can drive around the fire pit. Not a good place for a bunch of boulders, when there are numerous other areas for fires. Would be easier big-rig turn-around without boulders there. Free We camped at Twenty Mile Beach Campground in a Travel Trailer.

If you like 'remote', this is the place. We love it here! 20 miles north of Hawthorne, NV., just off Hwy. 95, about 1/4 mile. The gravel road is a little washboarded, but the reward is a lakeview site with no crowding. We were the only ones here in March. No problem getting any size rig in here with plenty of room to turn around. Naturally for $0 there are no hook-ups but there is a pit toilet and dumpsters are provided. Turn left at the T going in for the best spots. This is a free site! We camped at Twenty Mile Beach Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

Free BLM campground 20 miles north of Hawthorne, 15 miles south of Schurz, on Walker Lake. Dry camping. At the end of the gravel road off the marked entrance on US95 there is a T intersection. We turned right (south). The road in that direction is poor to fair gravel, but can be navigated with any RV. At the end there is a huge site that a big rig can pull through, but if it had been occupied we would have needed to unhook the toad and back out. If we had turned left (north) at the T, we would have had excellent graded gravel road, 25' wide. There are a couple of big turnout campsites along that road, plus plenty of room to simply pull over to the side of the road and set up. At the end of that road, there are more informal campsites and a large loop around the toilet that any rig can use to go back out. There are two spotless vault toilets and three dumpsters. Very quiet. The lake is stocked with trout. Elevation 4,000 feet. Excellent Verizon voice and data service. We could not hear the highway from where we camped, but the area on the north road is within earshot of US95. Great place to spend the night between Fallon and Pahrump. My wife wants to come back and spend a week here. Lat: 38.752368 Lon: -118.765611 We camped at Twenty Mile Beach Campground in a Motorhome.
