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! We camped at Walker River State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.

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. We camped at Walker River State Recreation Area in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Walker River State Recreation Area in a Travel Trailer.
