Valley View RV is on the other end of town on hwy 93. We stayed there once in a pinch, they put the one nighters near the noisy street. I'd rate it a "7".

And if willing to dry camp, a few miles south of Ely off US50, is
Cave Lake State Campground. Cave Lake State Park | Nevada State Parks Although I don't think the campground has any hookups, it does have a dump station.

And yes, there is a lake in Ely, although small.

We overnighted there enroute to Vegas and the Grand Canyon this past March.

If you were going to stay for more than one night I would certainly give the KOA or another RV park in the area a look but if you are just looking for an overnight stop I would absolutely recommend the Prospector Inn and Casino. We paid $15 a night for full hook-ups including Cable. It also included the use of the indoor pool and hot tub which was part of their Hotel. Wifi was pretty spotty in our site but was solid in the Hotel (ie. lobby, pool area and restaurant). The Restaurant (Mexican) was also pretty decent as we'll. They had 1/2 dozen or so larger pull through sites in the middle of the dirt lot with the rest being along the east side next to the Hwy. We had one of the sites next to the Hwy and honestly didn't hear much during the night.

We had originally booked to stay at the KOA but at almost $45 for just a single late night stop we thought we would give the Casino a try. We admittedly went into it with pretty low expectations but were very pleasantly surprised and would definitely stay there again.

Not much to see and do in the town but we would recommend checking out the Railway Museum if you had the time. We didn't know that the guy who runs it was the train guy from the "American Restoration" TV show and we're pleasantly surprised as we had seen a few episodes with him in it.

We've stayed there several days and enjoyed looking fo Garnets just out side of town. We first tried to stay at the KOA but our Progressive EMS found problems with the power. Their answer was "know one else is complaining" so we moved to the Prospectors campground next to the Casino in town. It was much cheaper and enjoyed our stay and would use them again.

I disagree, Prospector's is not a dump. It's nothing special but when passing through for just a night it's perfect.

Agree with MissouriDan and it's cheap. Good power and water and sewer. But it's not a destination!
