Camping Near Reno

Recommended Posts

Anyone have any favorite spots to camp near Reno with a trailer and hook-ups? My son is starting at UNR next week and we'd rather stay in the trailer rather than a hotel. I know Boomtown has the KOA campground, but it's almost $50 a night! We need to drop the trailer off and then go back and forth to UNR for orientations for a few days.

For the life of me right now I can't think of any more RV parks in Reno (of course, I just woke up.) But there are a couple of RV parks in Fernley-I don't know how much they charge but I'm assuming it'll be cheaper than Boomtown. It would be about a 30 minute drive to UNR from Fernley. Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

The Boomtown RV park is a pretty dreary place - River's Edge is pretty nice - right on the Truckee, Sparks Marina is OK, Keystone is pretty OK too, don't know much about the other 2 - just driven by

Thanks for the help, and yes, google is my friend, it's just better if one can get first hand experiences! The reason I like Boomtown is I'm pretty sure I can ride out of the back of the campground up to Pevine or over to Dog Valley.
