Campground Review: Walker River Resort

Walker River Resort is a nice RV park located in Smith Valley, Nevada.  To get there (at least for us), we headed south on Highway 395 and then you take a left hand turn on Highway 208.  About 20 miles in and you have arrived!  Walker River has large, shaded RV sites with full hook-ups and is fairly priced.  Other amenities include a bar, clean swimming pool and cottages that are available for rent.

It has been a long time since we stayed here and it was B.T. (before trailer).  We had just wrapped up a busy tax season at work and a big group of my co-workers headed out to Walker River for a “post-tax season party”.  Several of them had trailers and my husband and I made our tent on one of their sites.  Needless to say, we had a blast, but that could have been due to the party type atmosphere and the endless cocktails!  I do remember that I thought the resort had lots to offer.  We definitely got use of some pool time and frequented the bar area.  The bathroom facilities were very nice and clean.

Lots of visitors to Walker River bring their RZR or quads as the trails are endless and you can make a day exploring the countryside, visiting old ghost towns and mines.  There is also fishing nearby in the Walker River and they even have a sporting clays course to get some shooting practice in.

Within a days drive from Walker, there are many places of interest including Yosemite, Lake Tahoe, Topaz Lake, Mono Lake, Virginia City and the amazing historical ghost town of Bodie.  If you’ve never been to Bodie, I highly recommend it!!

I would definitely recommend Walker River Resort and I may just reserve a spot right now!

Have you ever been to Walker River Resort?  What did you think?

Happy Camping!
