10 RV Parks near Silver Springs, Nevada
Jun 2016 - $17.00
I picked this campground because I am a history bluff who grew up on western movies, and it was a hot day and I needed shade for my tent. It met these needs. Loved seeing the ruins of the old fort. The shade was great but the small black flies were not. The good news was they did not bite. This is not the state park's fault. Summer time near a river you get bugs. Had I been in my travel trailer it wouldn't have been a big deal, but for tenters it is a royal pain. The campground needs work. The pit toilets were clean but smelled like a privy. Most parks have gone to the composting toilets which have almost no smell. The campsites were dirt--there were traces of gravel from very long ago. There were train tracks near by but I never saw or heard a train. There were only 5 campers including the host. The sites were easy to get into and there were some big rig, pull thru sites. This could be a great campground with gravel sites and composting toilets but it hasn't seen any upgrades in many years. I probably would not camp here again. - NT2013

About the only good thing I can say is that the huge, majestic cottonwood trees all through out the campground make for a pleasant late afternoon, even in August. Small, wooden bridge across a dry creek just before entering the campground made me think more that twice before crossing it. Gravel/dirt pathways throughout campground are mostly being reclaimed by bordering trees and brush. Don't even open the door on the pit toilets! They appeared not to have been cleaned in quite a while. There was only one other camper in the entire facility so I assume the 5 or 6 state park vehicles I saw at the entrance (Ft. Churchill state historical park) must concentrate on that aspect or the facility. Water spigots interspersed throughout but did not use. With a bit of effort on the part of the parks department, this could be a real gem in the middle of the blazing desert (even with pit toilets!). Would not stay here again unless I hear that they've made some efforts at clean up or if I was stuck for a night. - pyrthkr

The Sam Buckland Campground is park the the Nevada State Parks system. It is part of Fort Churchill State Park. The sites are tucked away in a grove of trees below the old fort. There are pull throughs and back in sites. There is a dump station at the camp ground entrance and there are a few places around the camp to get fresh water. Most sites are very well shaded. The Carson River is nearby and makes for some nice nature walks. The rail road line nearby is rarely used. This is an excellent place for history fans as Fort Churchill is part of the Pony Express Trail. I camp here often as this is one of my favorite places to get away and relax. - KofNV

Awful place to stay. Bathrooms are disgusting. Laundry room never cleaned except by another tenant. WiFi does not work even though it's offered by the park. Would not ever recommend this place to anyone. I should I have called the health department on them. - Past tenant

Wi-Fi strong near the office, I stayed in site #4 - no clue further away. As with all public Wi-Fi, it becomes useless when lots of people try to access it. Was good until evening then, not so much.
Pull-through site, full concrete with tiny spots of grass, no shade.
Site narrow with little room for parking errors so my extended slide would clear the electrical pedestal. Had to 'go around' twice to get it right.
Helpful & friendly office person on check-in.
Seems to have lots of permanent residents judging by the clutter around and under the various rigs. Some, well, they've seen better days.
As a transient stopover: works fine. I did not check the rest rooms or laundry. I would stay again if I needed a place to get water or dump tanks. - Retired-n-Roamin

Very nice park. A lot of permanent residents, but well kept and quiet. Wifi worked great. Park is convenient to everything.
All the sites appeared to run low in the front. To have been completely level, would have made our step quite high, so made do with being somewhat low.
We will stay here again, if in the area. Camp host was very helpful. Reservations are recommended as they are quite popular. - vwbluestar

Staff was very helpful, got us checked in quickly, topped off our propane, and escorted to our site. Interior roads are mixed gravel/pavement and just wide enough. Facilities are clean, spacious and up to date. There are young to mature trees sprinkled throughout the park, along with grass, and all are well maintained. Sites are good width, just long enough for our 36 foot Class A and Jeep on cement pad, with plenty of room to sit outside and relax on the grass. Not all sites are as long, so be specific as to what you need. Water pressure is some of the best we have had, and other utilities are fine. Cable is an issue that the park is working on; we were frustrated because we could not get network channels. OTA is possible and was clear most times, fuzzy at other times. There is plenty of shopping, casinos, restaurants and fuel nearby. Hands down, this looks to us to be the best RV park choice in the area. - Vegas Trippers

Friendly and helpful staff. Well maintained, clean park and easy access from the highway. Clear cable tv, quiet neighbors and spaces reasonably spaced apart. Nothing negative to say and rate for full hookups, pull through site was $38/night as advertised. - Mike and Melissa

Friendly folks. Great WiFi. Huge clean showers.......not far from I-80. You are RIGHT on a busy 4 lane highway. On a weekday, the 70 mph traffic starts at ~0530 AM. Plus there are a lot of full-time residents, and they start departing about the same time. "Front spots" are semi green and tidy; "back" /full timer spots are dusty without any particular grass or vegetation. - Diesel24J

All sites are concrete with vehicle parking area next to rv site. Hook-ups face neighbor site not yours. There are two RV parks right next to each other which made it easy to miss the entrance to Fernley RV Park.
Fernley RV Park has a block wall facing W.Main Street. Go down Marie Dr., which looks like a long driveway to get to the office & entrance to the RV Park. - MAFLAF

There are five sites remaining and the others are across a fence and are being torn out as part of another project. It would be a little hard for big rigs but they could do it. Pool was wonderful as was the hot tub. Showers/bathrooms immaculate. WiFi worked good. - Walter Cullop
Sep 2007 - $30.00
I was informed that the motel had been sold and the RV park would be closed down. Several sites had already been torn up during this visit. This will make staying in Fernley a little harder, only one other park in town. New Wal Mart going in across the street, might be OK for rest stop when completed. - Marv

Nice to be set back from any busy highway. Office management very friendly and helpful. The manager who has 40 years handling big rigs will even park your vehicle for you if you don't feel comfortable with the tightness of a back-in slot. - JWM1946

We stayed here in 2014 when we moved to Dayton and now again as we move away. There are improvements in that time...a cleaner dog area, nicer staff and artificial grass. Concrete and black top all around and personal help in backing into your site! Sites are tight, but clean. They also helped with connecting our cable box ($50 returnable fee) got us lots of channels on the TV! Table for each site and clean laundry room. - 1yearusa

We stayed here one night. The park looks nice and is relatively small. The sites are concrete with artificial grass in between, so there's no gravel or sand to deal with. We tried to get over-the-air TV with our antenna, since we were pretty close to Reno, but could only get FOX! Then, wanting the network channels, we hooked up to the park cable connection and could only get 2 obscure channels. I went to the office to ask about cable service and a channel guide. The only lady there didn't seem to know anything about the cable system or guide. She said she couldn't find the manager, but when she found him she "will have him come see you." Evidently, either she never found him or he chose to ignore us as we never saw or heard from him. So, we ended up just watching cable channels on our dish satellite. When we checked in they had a sign on the office door saying "closed on Wed. and Thurs". How in the world do you run an RV park when you're closed 2 days a week??? - Jim & Di

If you are stay daily or weekly great, Monthly forget it. Learn to read your meter and take a picture of the meter. They mark up the food they buy at Smith's down the hill. food and propane too high . If you pay month to month don't get them mad at you or you go from monthly to 28 day. There are only to 50 amp spaces. $525.00 a month plus power. - abander

Nice little park walking distance from town. If you're into history a must stop. It is a climb up a winding road and a tedious descent down but not dangerous just watch your speed. While there have dinner at the Cider Factory gourmet dining at non gourmet prices. - J.M. Wade

We stay long term at the park because of the history of Virginia City. There are a multitude of things to do in the area. The views are magnificent!! The new owners (since Nov 2017), a British couple, are the best. The staff is cordial and helpful. There is a comprehensively stocked market and a laundromat on site. There is also a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner, at reasonable prices, on the grounds. - Pete Koop

Wow has this place gotten expensive $55 per night. We have stayed here a few times but may not be back because of the cost.This was an emergency stop for us but they squeezed us in. The park spaces are large and clean. We didn't use the facilities so can't attest to the condition. There is a fuel station and store that is well stocked. We only stayed one night. - Desert Lady

We stayed here in a fifth wheel for 7 days at $50 a night with Good Sam discount. Multiple pull thrus, many concrete paved. Good cable reception. 50 amp service on our site. Clean and well kept.
On the down side, it’s almost impossible to sleep due to heavy road noise. We had to keep the windows closed at all times to cut the noise. We were within 50 yards of the road. Our site had a “nice” view of the service station and road.
Still, it’s still the best park in Fallon. There’s not much to pick from. - CamperDanandBenne

Nice park except the spaces are a bit too close. The park has changed hands and is now called Sage Valley R.V. Park. - camperguy

A great couple of day stop. Everything very clean and quiet. Owner/manager very helpful and cares about his customers. Washer/dryer setup inexpensive. The Churchill County Museum is a must see in town. We will return. - Libby

The day we arrived manager was rude. Restrooms was nasty and had black mold. Manager changed the pass code for women's bathroom, because she didn't want some people in the park to have it. She yelled about our dog crapping in the next lot over, and the lots are super small. It wasn't rented because had to be fixed. She yelled about everything possible. When we asked for a refund because a family emergency came up and we need to get back home, we were told HELL no. And when asked about the owners number or email, she told us she was the owner but the owner was here a couple a days ago. She is not a nice person. I would never stay here again. - worst place to stay

The lady was nice when I called ahead, but unfortunately the place was terrible. Site was tiny, but we fit. Smell was awful, and not sure what from. Toilets very dirty and no TP, with signs posted regarding gross misuse and threatening to close the restrooms if the misuse continued. Men's was already boarded shut. Speed dips that were way too much and rocked the MH terribly. Mostly full timers. - Farmgirlbh

Pulled in after 6 pm so office was closed. Had called ahead so knew spot was available. Price was well below last two RV parks we have stayed. Graveled flat pull-thru spots. Sites are arranged diagonally for easy entry and exit. 30 amp electrical service, sewer, and water. The restrooms, laundry room and area was dirty with built up scale. When using the washer or shower the water ran brown, did not wash clothes or shower. When the sun went down the cockroaches came out in droves. Near to Hwy 50 so constant traffic noise. Would not stop here again, better to stay in the Walmart parking lot and save the money. - mamacallsen
