April is not the most scenic month to view the wide variety of plants in this park, but it's still a nice, clean and quiet place to stay. The staff had not yet planted 500 flowers grown in the onsite greenhouse so there is much to see in other months. The staff was very friendly and helpful with sightseeing destinations and there was someone working on the park nearly continuously. The sites were not real level and were "wash boardy", but that won't preclude me from staying here again for another eleven days. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a fantastic Nevada State Park! Eastern Nevada is unique and full of surprises, this park is one of them. This is probably the nicest and most meticulously maintained State Park we have ever found. The facilities are incredible and the campground is kept absolutely spotless clean by one of the most dedicated and friendly hosts we have ever met. The bathrooms and sites are probably the best you will ever find. The host shared his local knowledge with us and guided us to the Delamar ghost town, without a doubt, one of the high points of our trip. (you do need four wheel drive for that trip though) The town of Caliente is also a neat and clean little mining town with lots of history. Don't miss the incredible hiking trails and the really neat park just a short distance above the campground. Incredible scenery and magnificent high desert ambiance. We can't wait to return to this area next winter. There are three other really nice State Parks in this area too. Kershaw-Ryan and Cathedral Gorge can easily handle big rigs. Spring Valley and Echo Canyon Parks are a little more snug and may present a challenge for a rig more than 32 feet in length, but well worth a day trip to see them. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Beautiful CG, approximately two miles out of Caliente off of SR 317, with exceptionally deep and level gravel sites. The State Park is the home of the former Kershaw Gardens which includes; wild grape, roses, and a number of other flowering plants -- neat to see that foliage in the middle of the Nevada desert. Generators are allowed between 7:00 am and 10:00 pm. Water spigots are interspersed through the CG and a dump Station. The day use area, about a mile from the CG, includes; the gardens, start of the trails, picnic area and a wading pond. This Park is a MUST SEE! We camped here in a Motorhome.
A small, well run park. Lady at check in was very friendly and helpful. Very clean showers that were a pleasure to use. The ladies offered shower rooms (2), one with a shower, sink and toilet and one with a shower/tub combo, sink and toilet. Plenty of hot water, nicely heated in the winter. Men's showers were more rudimentary, with shared sinks, toilet stalls and showers separate, not as well heated as the ladies side. Park was very quiet and felt safe. Although pet friendly, there wasn't really anywhere to take the dogs to potty, other than along the edges of the park where it was just bare dirt and weeds/stickers. But, owners still ask that you pick up after pets. We stayed one night on our way north, and liked it, so we stayed again on our way home. A nice, quiet, clean and safe place to stay the night. We arrived after hours the first night, Owners had very good directions on price and how to pay after hours, which was appreciated after a long day of driving. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
Again, great place to stay. Off the hwy - so road noise at a minimum. Some long timers, but very well maintained. Site was gravel and no leveling needed. No table, though some sites had one. Staff friendly, restrooms were different. Was converted manufactured home, ladies side and men's side, with recliners in the middle. Laundry was standard, but clean. We were shady, and I believe the non shady side, had the 50 amp service, and was new. Would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
Excellent stop. Great value. Owner checked us in and couldn't be nicer. $1 wash and dry in clean laundry. 50 amp in open lot, 30 amp in shade. Nice shade, and still got Sirius. Plenty to see for a few days. Loved park. Will certainly be back. We camped here in a Motorhome.
We enjoyed our stay here, and would stay again. We were heading west from Tonopah, and there aren't many choices along this route. However, I feel this park stands on its own, meaning we would stay here again even if there were other choices. We stayed one night while passing through on Labor Day Weekend. We found the office staff very friendly and helpful. Our pull through site was easy to get into. There are lots of trees to provide shade in the main part of the park. There appeared to be another section with fewer trees (which may be good for those with satellite dishes). Our site was level, and the others appeared to be as well. The WiFi connection here was great: strong signal and fast web browsing. For cell phones, AT&T had 2-3 bars of 4G coverage on my iPhone. I was told Verizon had coverage as well. As a final note, the town of Caliente looked very nice driving through: it had lots of trees, and seemed to have a nice small-town atmosphere. (It didn't have that dilapidated look so many Nevada mining towns have.) We camped here in a Travel Trailer.

This is a wonderful 'Ma and Pa' type RV park. Hosts are very helpful, sites are pretty level, and all facilities / hook ups work well. Lots of shade trees, the cheapest laundry at a buck a wash and dry. Very close to the township and all area attractions. Very quiet and well maintained. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
First the good. Clean park with level sites and plenty of pull-throughs. The staff seemed friendly on the phone but we never met any of them face-to-face. The park was quiet at night although I did hear a couple trains. The park was much noisier in the morning as there was construction going on when we stayed. The restroom was clean albeit a bit cramped. The bad? Although it says 50 amp hookups, the space we pulled into very late at night only had 30 amp and we did not want to try to locate a possible 50 amp spot and disturb the neighbors. If arriving at night the sign is NOT lit up. Although we were told you can't miss it when driving north on 93, we did in fact miss the park and had to double back. If you hit the main drag in Caliente when driving north you have gone too far! Overall a nice park and we would stay here again, especially now that we know how to find it! We camped here in a Motorhome.
We went their last year for the 4th of July and are going their for the 4th this year too very good views of the, i guss rock faces and hills. I have a cousin who lives right next to the park. They have alot of big pull through sights with full hook ups (30amp-50amp, water,sewer) and has lots of trees around the sites with plenty of shade its a nice quiet place. to relax they have a mobile home over their with a small lounge and a Landry room. We went their with our 43 foot King Arie towing my cr-v and the site accommodated it well. Excellent place. We camped here in a Motorhome.

This was a nice little park. One side is older and has trees. The other side is brand new with brand new hook-ups and small trees. Quiet, easy in and out. A very good overnight place. We really liked the Branding Iron restaurant in town. We would stay here again. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
We pulled in on a Friday afternoon and were able to get a nice long pull-through site. The shade trees are lovely; if we'd had our satellite dish out, though, it might have been difficult to get a signal. The woman who checked us in was friendly and helpful. The WiFi is fast. There are some worker rigs over on the side, but they are clean and well-kept. This is a great overnight stop on our way north; we would definitely stay here again. We camped here in a Travel Trailer.
The park has some nice clean bathrooms and their showers are clean and have good hot water: I'd give them a B. The internet is fast, much faster than my Verizon air card. However be sure to check the power before you plug in. The first place we checked had 134v at the plug in. This may start to fry some stuff in your rig. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is a nice park with the exception of the many worker's rigs in the park. So every morning around 5 AM, there was a mass exodus to go to work. Only 50 amps, but with the nice large shade trees, you probably don't need to use your A/C. The owner was very friendly and helpful. The park is very clean. Although most of the hookups are side-by-side, you do get a patch of grass and a picnic table with your site. When in the area, we will stay again. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Pretty, treed and grass separated sites with dirt/gravel interior roads with GREAT price. Just about a block off Highway 93 and so quiet. Wi-Fi strong, we are in a 50 amp site (but along a concrete fence with services)' the remainder of the park is 30 amp. Trees would block satellite in a lot of the sites, we get a signal here which is why we parked in this spot. Well maintained and well kept park. Would definitely stay here again for an overnight stop. Office staff very helpful and welcoming. We camped here in a Motorhome.
Nice little park, good for an overnight stay. Large trees make it difficult to get dome satellite in. 30Amp service for now but while we were here the owners were talking to an electrician about putting in 50amp service. They may have Wi-Fi here, so ask. I used my Verizon Aircard and boy was it slow!! Good water power and sewer. Interior roads are dirt so it was dusty when people drove too fast through the park. We would stay here again when passing through the area. We camped here in a Motorhome.
This is not a destination park but was acceptable for brief stay. There was some train noise during the night but the highway noise was minimal. There are only a few pull-throughs but they will accommodate larger rigs. The sites are dirt and gravel. The building housing the restrooms and showers is a dilapidated mobile home and not very inviting, although the facilities appeared to be clean. It would be nice if a modern building could be constructed for these facilities. About half the sites appear to be occupied by long-term residents. We would return for an overnight stay. We camped here in a Fifth Wheel.
