Max Rig Size
Same Day Requests
Located a short 20 miles from Interstate 80 and Elko Nevada, at the base of the beautiful Ruby Mountains, our "backyard" of adventure awaits you. Just minutes from hiking, fishing, hunting, mountain biking, ATVing, boating and much more we would love to host your RV stay. Our small community is rich in the Basque and Cowboy cultures, represented by several yearly festivals (January- Cowboy Poetry, July- Basque Festival & Silver State Stampede Rodeo) which brings visitors from around the globe. Although, ranching is still a valid part of our livelihood, our current economy is driven by one of the largest North American gold deposits and an industry of mining that surrounds it. Whether you are here to experience our wilderness, explore the trail of the fated Donner Party (home of the Donner Trail Interpretive Center), try your luck in the local casinos, or just enjoy a slice of the simple life by slowing down and relaxing in the wonder of the west, we would love to host your RV stay. Accommodation Notes: We will do our best to accommodate up to two RVs, however being in the foothills of the rubies presents a challenge for finding somewhat level ground to host multiple longer rigs. We will do our level best to make a spot for you. TOAD Vehicles are welcome, but depending on total length may need to be unhooked and parked sepretly. We do have limited electricity hook up for one RV. You may use your generator till a respecatable hour in consideration of our neighbors (around 9 PM) We have access to water and you are more than welcome to use our hose to fill your tank but it's not the most convienant set up to be hooked up on a continual basis. We want you to be aware that we have a Golden Retriever that pretty much has the has the run of the property, we will do our best to keep him out of your way. We also have multiple cats that are both indoors and out. Please contact us and we will we will do our best to try to work out any accommodation hurdles.

The hosts were fantastic, very accommodating. The view is quite beautiful of the Ruby Mountains. We liked it here and we’re able to hook up with 15 amp electricity, which was a nice bonus.

Gorgeous view of the Ruby Mts. At sunset, we got to see why they are called the Rubies - stunning. We saw a double rainbow too! You park in front of the host's home in a circular driveway. It is liocated in what I call a suburban - country neighborhood. ( outside of a town with other homes neat by).

This location is definitely worth the drive from I80! The hosts are so gracious and provided us with a basket of local information so we could figure out what to do with our time. If you were only plan a single night, increase to at least two so you can explore the Lamoille Canyon area!
