Comments: A beautiful campground with great lake views from every site. There are sites as soon as you turn off the main highway and then additional sites if you continue driving down the hill towards the boat launch. We stayed down the hill. It was fantastic!
Here’s a few other photos of around the campground.
The campground is located on the east side of Walker Lake and offers fabulous views of the lake and the mountains to the west.
We couldn’t resist a few pictures of Toby driving around the campground area.
A great campground just north of Hawthorne with easy access and close to amenities in Hawthorne if needed.
