Great place to stay! Big sites, staff is very nice, off road trails right from camp. It's a fun camp ground with lots to do. If you are looking for peace and tranquility try Weed Heights Campground, as this is a little more fun group. Nothing obnoxious, but it does have motorcycles and ATV's coming and going all day. I hear the pool is nice, but have yet to come in the summer. We go once every spring and fall. We have a 32 foot motorhome towing a jeep. - Jeeperlee

Dust is a constant here. This is a remote resort primarily serving off-roaders using trails in the vast BLM lands nearby. It is however a good base camp for day-trips to Bodie and/or Virginia City.
Out site was a level, dirt pull-thru. Power was only 30Amp, but that was enough since there was dense shade most of the day. Wi-Fi was good since there was a bathhouse nearby.
We MIGHT stay here again the next time we go to California (if they stay in the Coast to Coast network). - Alworth

Very nice RV resort. All hard dirt roads and sites with large trees with shade and open sites. Small store, bar, rec room, pool and hot tub. Most sites long pull-through with room to park car. Membership resort and set up for off road vehicles while staying with many miles of trails. No ATV noise in park. Pistol shooting range close, trap circuit, fishing pond and fast trout river. About 20 miles from small town. - Pepper Dan

For $24.00 this is a very good value. I have a 43' fifth wheel, it was a little tight with corners and trees but very doable. I was there for an overnight stay only, did not unhook. Site was sloped side to side, pulled up on blocks on one side and good enough. Main cable to park had been torn a few days ago, so cannot comment on cable, but no OTA channels. Wifi was not. Did not go to the casino. This is not a resort, but a good overnighter or an extra day to check out Mono Lake. Was close to highway, but down from roadway, no noticable noise. Would stay again. - MountainFolk

We were here in late June 2017 and liked it enough to spend a second night. We would use this park again. The lower section is very quiet although near US 395. This lower section has no sewer connections, but a dump is available for $10. Power was good, cable TV was grainy.
Note that accessing the lower RV section, go down the driveway on the right side of the store, then turn LEFT to the lower section. - Bud H

For the price wasn't expecting much but this was a nice surprise. They give you coupons for two free drinks at the casino. And few dollars off diners and discounts on gift shop purchases. Although this isn't on the lake some sites have a partial view. A nearby park was booked and from the road looked packed in tight. I didn't have reservations here but there were plenty openings. Pool was crystal clean like it suppose to be but a bit chilly. Clean showers and restrooms. Have horseshoes pits. This turned out to be a great stopover with handy gas station. The casino has live entertainment and daily specials. To me this beats the other nearby RV park cramped in to just to have a views of a lake. I'm sure cost much more too. - DennisO

This park is a Gem! Entrance into this park from the north - you stop at the agriculture inspection station and then almost immediately turn left down a paved driveway into the park. We pull a 43 ft. fifth wheel with a long bed F350 dually pickup and navigating around the small park was fine. Note: Park is 30 AMP only! And very few sites are big enough for big rigs so make your reservations as early as possible. Most of the RVers in the park have been going to this park for 35 years so it is like one big family. And visitors are made to feel very welcome. The owners are very nice, as is the maintenance men - all three go out of their way to welcome you and make you feel at home. They have a small store with RV essentials and basics like TP, paper plates and towels! There's a store a couple of blocks north at the Topaz Lodge and Casino if you need more than that. Summer is usually quite full, so make reservations in advance. Lots of tall trees for shade and incredible views of Topaz Lake from most sites, The parking area is dirt, so be prepared - this is high desert, you know. The location is great for water sports. Every site has a picnic table. They do not allow any campfires at all. Very nice, quiet park at night. Not a loud party scene at all. Quiet hours are 8 pm to 8 am. Dogs are very welcome. There's a beach to put up awnings and beach chairs. We bring kayaks and enjoy fishing. The town of Gardnerville is just 20 miles north and has everything you could want - big Walmart, big grocery store and even a Starbucks!! We wish we could have stayed longer and will definitely plan to go back. - JanneC

Called in May for a reservation, and talked to the owner who said she had written us down, no deposit needed. When we arrived, there was no spot for our 40 ft motorhome. Management got together and let us park in a site for a much shorter motorhome or trailer. We stuck out quite a bit, meaning the site next to us could not be used, but they agreed it would be okay for one night. Nice place. Due to on-going drought, mostly dirt and dust on the ground. - therealSimpsons

This our favorite local place to camp. Full hookups, lots of beautiful shade trees, 2 boat docks, incredible views of Topaz Lake from most sites, laundry and clean restrooms/showers make this very enjoyable. The owners are very nice, as is the maintenance man. They do recycle aluminum and gave a large trash truck. They also have a quaint fish cleaning station with fresh running snow-melt water year round. They have a small store with RV essentials and basics like TP, paper plates and towels, but they have a huge ice cream freezer with a good variety! There's a store a couple of blocks away at the Topaz Lodge and casino if you need more than that. Summer is usually quite full so make reservations in advance. That being said, they usually have a space or two open for overnighters. The parking area is dirt, so be prepared, but the fishing is great as is the location for water sports. Every site has a picnic table. They do not allow any campfires at all- even a propane fire pit- this place has been owned by firefighters for 50 years, so that is something to consider, but we don't miss it. Very nice, quiet park at night. Not a loud party scene at all. Quiet hours are 8 pm to 8 am. Dogs are very welcome. There's a beach to put up awnings and beach chairs- depends on the snowpack. We bring kayaks and enjoy fishing. To get there from Nevada, head south on 395 past Gardnerville, go through the CA inspection and make an immediate left. From CA, head north on 395 and just before the inspection station past Coleville, turn right. This park can accommodate giant class A through pop up trailers. No tents unless they are part of another rig. - Michelelyl

This is a new State Park. There is currently dry camping with metal shelter, fire rings with cooking grates, and picnic tables. There are flush toilets in the campground as well as free showers with hot water. There will be a full hookup campground built on he site in the future. This is part of a land grant to the State of Nevada. The Pitchfork Ranch, Rafter 7 Ranch, and Flying M Ranches are included in the park. As of today, only the Pitchfork Ranch area and the "Nine Mile" area are accessible. Other areas will be developed in the future. Free hot showers and flush toilets. State Park fees apply. - KofNV

We really like this park. It's super quiet and mellow. We have a jeep and were able to go explore right out of the campground. The host are very nice and friendly. The park is nothing spectacular, but it is quiet, clean and convenient. If you are looking for a park with hookups and a peaceful location this is it. Yerington is a quick drive to the East and the West is wide open jeep trails to Carson City and beyond. - Jeeperlee

The managers were a pleasure to deal with. One of them even brought us a free bag of ice! Very quiet spot a short distance off highway. Many pull thru hookups. Chukars everywhere. A great bargain too. Ride in\out for UTVs and motorcycle's. Endless trails too! - Mrjojo

Beyond funky to be sure. Lots of permanent residents. I was exhausted or the wind was terrible while passing through, I would opt for a casino parking lot or rest stop instead, kinda nasty actually! - NVDesertGirl

This was a back up spot after our spot in Bridgeport had to close for a few days. We spent five nights in their best, most expensive, spot. Yes, it is right on the highway as most of the RV places along 395 in Mono and Inyo counties are. We knew that going in, so we did not worry too much about it. The big pull through sites can handle the big pusher motor homes. Our spot could handle large trailers and had a nice concrete pad and table with chairs, a BBQ, and a propane campfire pit with chairs. It is not often that we find place that our sewer elbow will actually screw into the threaded pipe but it did here. The owner had taken great care to level the sites. We were in a group of three trailers and none of us had to do anything to level up. There was a lack of shade in out spot but that will change in time since the owners have put in new landscaping. This is about the best RV spot in the county, but it is about a 40 minute drive to the Bridgeport area. With all the road construction it was more like 90 minutes - Gtwood65

Not sure why others are rating this park at 9.2. To us this is just an average park. Had to keep windows closed on the highway side at night as there was so much noise. Also feel the rates are too high. Cable TV was OK but channel selection was not good. Staff was nice. - denvercats

We got a late start from our CA spot so finding this spot was a real treat! It is near the road but we didn't notice much road noise. Check in was quick and friendly. Our spot was very nice and we had a beautiful view of the mountains. We had a very brief stay as we had a lot of miles to cover the next day, but we would definitely come and stay longer! - cchall112

I very seldom get to post back to back reviews specially when they're 9 to 11 months apart . But let me just say this, coming from Reno area where I had to pay at the Grand Sierra what I had to pay and resort fees it completely takes the fun out of what you're therefore, this lodge is a short term stay for anybody passing through yet it has 50 amp power it does have water if you need to fill your tank there is no dump, but remember it's just here for short term stay. For some reason the traffic wasn't as bad this time as the last time we visited not sure if the gravel/road repair yard across the street was not in full swing but it was more quiet , but I will say this you better have your nights sleep in by 7 o'clock in the morning because the traffic does get cranked up and it does get noisy. Another thing I noticed this time is there was more people here, the lodge said that the campground's five spots have been pretty much booked all summer . I will say this when you are backing into the spots make sure you have a good spotter the spots are kind of pie shaped and it is possible to get closer to your neighbor than you should be when backing in be careful. We definitely would stay here again . - monaco cruiser

Very nice place to stay for elks members only . I agree with previous post the traffic on Kemmerling is getting more used during the daytime very very busy there seems to be a gravel yard across the street that trucks are continuously running from seven in the morning till 3 o'clock this goes on six days a week at least this was my observation how long this goes on through the year can't tell you . The RV parking is set up very nice we actually backed in with a 22 foot enclosed trailer the only thing the sprinklers washed the trailer early in the morning but that was OK we did not have to unhook. Electrical hook up was nice 50 amp was a plus specially if you were there in the summer time were you needed to run air believe me it would be hot, there is no trees to shade. We attended a breakfast at the lodge on Sunday was excellent very very good I would stay here again but definitely bring earplugs there is still some traffic noise at night if you can park away from the street as far as possible is a plus, motorhomes or trailers between you and the street might create a little bit of a buffer on noise. We camped here in a motorhome for members only . - monaco cruiser

This is a new Elks lodge and features 5 electric-only back-in sites at the front of their parking lot near the street entrance. Self-registration. AC voltage was good. The grounds were exceptionally clean and well manicured. If needed, water can be obtained from a lawn spigot near the edge of the RV parking sites, but no sewer dump is available here. There's some noise from Kimmerling Rd. out front during the day (which is surprisingly busy) but it's quiet at night. Verizon had a strong signal and AT&T medium signal strength here. This is a good place for a quick overnight stop and we'll definitely stay again.
NOTE: For the use of current Elks members only. - Gyropilot
