The camp spots were nice and the best bathrooms ever. As for the fishing, we didn't do too bad. It wasn't very fun in regards to doing anything else with 2 kids under 5. It's was beautiful though. Just a long drive from Vegas.

Nice place to get away to for a while. Did some fishing. Busy spot on holidays. I would recomend this place for anyone who loves the outdoors but not far off the beaten path.

Couldn't get a spot at the lake view campground, we stayed at Elk Flats which is just a couple minutes from the lake. Campground is very nice with flush toilet, hot showers and a dump station. No hookup sites. The sites are spaced apart nicely...More

Another one of Nevada's hidden treasures. About 4 hours away from Las Vegas, lots of gas stations on the way. The park itself is very well kept, lots of wildlife and camp grounds. The weather there was a cool 65 degrees so a nice change...More
