7 RV Parks near Yerington, Nevada

There are presently two (maybe three...we didn't look for the Bighorn campground) camping areas, one with hookups and one without. Both areas have plenty of space around the sites, most if not all are pull-through sites, each has a metal shade pergola over a picnic table on a concrete slab, and a metal fire ring. There is a large overflow parking area close by. The hookups are electric only plus a water spigot which you can use to fill your tanks but not for continuous supply. No sewer, but dump station on-site is included in your fees and is spacious and clean. There is NO shade other than the small metal pergolas. The area is very wide open and exposed. The visitor center is very small but I imagine will expand over time. They provide a water trail map of the river to assist with planning any river related activities. There are walking paths and picnic pergolas scattered throughout the park. The scenery is peaceful and quiet. It gets quite hot here on a summer day, but evenings are cooler. Our kids used to camp on this ranch with the Boy Scouts when it was privately owned, and enjoyed canoeing and hiking around the area. The biggest drawback is the 2.8 mile washboard dirt/gravel road to the main entrance of Pitchfork. Be forewarned that your rig will take a beating just getting to the campground! - Labs

This park just opened the RV Hookup camp area. There is power (15 amp, 30 amp, & 50 amp), and water at the hookup sites. There is no sewer but the nearby RV dump station is included with the park entrance fee. There are 18 sites in the hook up area. Each site has a steel gazebo wit htable and a fire ring with cooking grate. There are garbage cans near the entry to the camp site. - KofNV

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

The primary focus in this area is ATV and dirt bike play. The sites are close but not tight. The WiFi is not bad unless it's the weekend and the park is packed. Verizon worked okay during those times. The facilities are very good and the RVers we encountered were nice and respectful of each other. The river was still running high, so we didn't spend any time at the beach area. The pool and clubhouse area was very nice and the laundry was a good price and large. Even though it's remote, we would stay here again. Stock up before you arrive as Walmart is an hour away. To go to Lake Tahoe from here you will go over the mountains and the roads are twisty but good. - Lke

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

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
