 Located within Davis Creek Regional Park, against the Sierra Nevada Mountains in Washoe Valley, this area offers outstanding views of Washoe Lake and Slide Mountain. The campground is open year round and has 62 overnight campsites available on a first-come, first-serve basis unless otherwise reserved. Although there are no hook-ups, longer travel trailers (32 foot max) can be accommodated at 19 sites (sites 21 - 39). Hot showers are available year round for a small fee (bring quarters).


Due to recent moisture and cooler temperatures, Davis Creek Regional Park is no longer under fire restrictions. It is always a good idea to practice these campfire safety tips:
  •  Only adults should build campfires. Fires should never be allowed to grow taller than your knees. 
  •  Never leave a campfire unattended. To extinguish it always keep a bucket of water close by.
  •  Use existing fire-rings only for your campfire or to place your propane fire pit.
  •  Clear / Rake pine needles and debris down to bare soil within 10 feet around campfire.
  •  Use wood no bigger than the fire ring.
  •  Keep tents and other burnable materials away from the fire.
  •  Be certain your campfire is completely out before you go to bed or leave the area. Pour water on the fire to douse it thoroughly. Stir the campfire until there are no embers and the ashes are cold to the touch. Remember, if it is too hot to touch, it is too hot to leave.

Site Reservation Tag.jpg 

Please Note: If you see a yellow 'Reserved' tag on a site marker, you can still camp in the site on a 1st come, 1st serve basis as long as you are out by the date listed.

How to Successfully Secure a Campsite …. BEST option is to make a reservation (at least 15 days in advance) by following the instructions above. Without a reservation, you would be camping on a 1st come, 1st serve basis and will need to pay cash AND show occupancy (at the same time) meaning "Leave enough camping gear in the site to show it's clearly taken". Be sure to check the dates on those yellow 'Reserved' tags before picking a site! Got questions? Call us at 775-849-0684. Thanks & Happy Camping!!
