Hwy 50 From Baker to Reno

We are doing the opposite of most people and are heading back to our home of the NW.

We are currently in Escalante, UT and are going to be taking Hwy 50 to Reno from Baker, NV. We were hoping to find a midway point to break up the drive and not have to do state line to state line in one drive. I feel that is just way too much in one day.

But the one decent sounding RV park in Austin, NV will be closed for the season.

I found the Hickison Petroglyph Campground right outside of Austin, NV for boondocking and I know it'll be cold, but I've seen a couple of different reviews on whether it would be able to fit a 32 RV with a towed.

Any one been there on whether that we would have issues with fitting? Or have any recommendations for a one night stop halfway? We don't need much for one night.

we use this allstays website extensively to find overnight parking locations, particularly walmarts.
this site is free to use and is kept up to date by users.
per allstays, there is a wally world in winnemucca that welcomes overnight parking for rvers.
that is on i 80 though.

Thanks.

That is the app I love to use. But there wasn't anything on Hwy 50 park wise that was open after season. :( So figured I'd hit the boards and see if anyone else had any other info.

Hubby is just thinking of driving it straight through....but we'll see.
