We stayed at the KOA last month which is a few miles west of Reno. It's nothing more than lots of concrete and a few trees, but it's easy to get in and out of from the highway and only a few minutes from the center of town. Hardly more than 20% of the sites were occupied, so the privacy is better than one might expect at a CG behind a casino.

try the Shamrock RV Park at 260 Parr Rd just off north virginia... between exits 70 and 71 off 395... we just spent a week there last week. nice park.... paved through out.... wifi... and all that other stuff. there were 5 of us with 5th wheel, 40 to 44 ft motorhomes with tows. they have a pool, nice laundry, and nice restrooms/showers. around $37/night.

Shamrock is a good choice, one of the nicer parks in town. The Boomtown KOA west of town that was already mentioned is decent. A little further west (5 mins) is Gold Ranch Casino & RV park that is also
pretty good.

In town, there is Silver Sage which is near the Peppermill & Atlantis casinos and also the convention center.

The Grand Sierra Resort also has an RV park... and Rivers Edge is okay, but right under the flight path of the airport ( so is the GSR RV park).

We just stayed at the Grand Sierra RV "resort". I put that in quotes because it is far from a resort but just as good as any of the rv parks there. We used to live in Sparks so we are familiar with most of them. Stay away from Reno RV Park (teeny tiny) or Keystone, River's Edge in Sparks is right under the airport flight path. Sparks Marina is very nice but also VERY pricey, so is Boomtown KOA. Bordertown RV Park is just as far north on 395 as Boomtown and Terrible's Gold Ranch are west on I80. I called every one of them for a weekly rate and Grand Sierra was the cheapest $157 (40 ft back in) $197 for pull thru. It's easy access, has nice bathrooms & showers, dog runs, however, the hotel pool must be 1/2 mile away and even further for the restaurants. It's a good central location for the area. You do get some plane noise from the airport also. If you happen to stay there, enter off Glendale and turn left at the stop sign, then right. There are NO signs anywhere on the access roads until you get into the parking lot. We knew where it was but anyone else could be circling that huge parking lot for awhile.

Probably the nicest in terms of appearance and surrounding neighborhood is Sparks Marina. At $227/week for a pull-through it is the most expensive, but not by all that much.
