AVI Casino KOA RV Park - Site 856

We departed Joshua Tree National Park towards Laughlin, Nevada and drove east on California Highway 62 and then north on Highway 95 from Vidal Junction. We enjoy Highway 62 with its dips, sign posts, and shoe and rock art. It makes for a fun drive.   Our goal was to camp at Big Bend of the Colorado in Laughlin but, …

New Frontier RV Park Winnemucca Nevada

We left Washoe Lake State Park and drove highway 50 east to Highway 95 north to I-80 to Winnemucca. A nice peaceful drive along some high desert alkaline dry lake beds. Almost feels like Bonneville Flats in some areas. The drive also included lots of ground squirrels running across the road.  We don’t see that when we drive these roads …

Washoe Lake State Park Nevada

We departed Cave Creek in Arizona and drove north via Highway 93 which is a very scenic route and passes the town of Nothing, Arizona. How cool is that? It also drives through one of the most dense forests of Joshua Trees and is stunning.  Then on to Kingman and over the pass into the Bullhead City/Laughlin area. We continue …

Wow, we love this park. Neat, clean, huge, spacious sites, lots of privacy, and a great cell signal with strong data. Big Bend is the newest Nevada State Park and has 24 large, level sites with full hookups added in 2009. And it shows it. Welcome to Big Bend (not to be confused with Texas’ Big Bend National Park)!   …

Valley of Fire State Park - Pinnacles Loop

One of the aspects of Valley of Fire State Park we love the most is the ability to hike anywhere directly from your campsite. No need to get in the car to drive to a trailhead, although that is definitely a possibility. We simply get up in the morning and walk in any direction and hike for hours and then …

Valley of Fire State Park - Arch Rock Campground

Another beautiful campground at Valley of Fire State Park in Nevada is Arch Rock Campground.  It is right next to Atlatl Campground (actually around the corner from Atlatl Rock), has 29 sites, some large, some small, some uneven, and the entire campground is a bit more primitive than Atlatl.  All sites are dry camping and there are no showers but …

Valley of Fire State Park - Atlatl Campground - Site 24

  We’re back. We just can’t seem to stay away from this place. We are usually here in December but never in November so we weren’t sure how crowded it would be. We know in the spring the campgrounds, both Atlatl and Arch Rock fill up quickly. In the winter months we have found that the Arch Rock Campground was …
