Great little oasis only 1.5 miles off I-80. Stayed at camping area that had boat ramp - overlooking lake. Nice sites with picnic table / sun Shelter & directing. No electrical but water hydrants dispersed to top off tank. Restrooms with flush toilets & showers.

What A Delightful Surprise
True, no electric hook up, but nice sights with natural shade, flush toilets, warm showers. Nice lake, creek running through the campground and lots of overfill camping, good stop about halfway between the bay area and Boise, short but nice walking trails.

We couldn't find any sites with electrical hookups when we arrived, and no one in the office had been available to take our calls throughout the day. We drove on to the next town.

Beautiful oasis in the desert. There are a few sites with hookups but we chose a regular site in the river cg. There were only 4 other sites occupied on this July Tuesday night. Prices have gone up to $15 for camping, +10 for hookups, but the showers are free and very nice.
The restrooms and showers have high ceilings that could be improved with the use of a Webster.
A flock of wild turkeys wandered through our site while we were having breakfast.

This park has two campgrounds. We stayed at the river one and we loved it. Both campgrounds have showers and water. The lake is awesome and it is so peaceful. You can't hear the highway at all. Highly suggest!

This is a nice campground. The site are spacious and we didn't have any problems parking our 29ft travel trailer. There are no hookups, but there is water at the site. The bathrooms are clean. There is a shower available but it takes quarters. I would stay here again.

A Pleasant Oasis
Imagine you're driving through the high desert. The sun is staring down at you mercilessly and the a.c. in your car just doesn't seem to be doing the trick. Just as you feel like you're going to implode from boredom you see the signs, "Rye Patch".
"What on Earth?" you think out loud if for no other reason than to drown out the sound of the kids yelling at each other in the back seat.
For if you have driven the stretch of I-80 that creeps through Northern Nevada then you are surely an expert and know that Nevada is barren nothingness.
I say to you today do yourself a favor and take that exit. Do you enjoy camping? Fishing? Boating? Hiking? Swimming? Take a breather, enjoy a picnic, the park is $5 for day use, $12 for overnight and they are currently remodeling and installing several spaces with power and city water hookups for your RV.
The area is kept very clean, the rangers are there 5 days a week [and part time the other 2 days] and the restroom facilities offer hot showers!
