Tonopah, NV RV Parks??

We are in Reno heading to Las Vegas. A good halfway stop over looks to be Tonopah but I am confused about the RV parks there.

RV Park reviews lists 3 parks, two with similar sounding names. Tonopah RV and Tonopah Station RV park. The reviews are better for Tonopah RV Park but on RV park reviews both list the same address, 1137 Erie Street.

RV Parky shows one at 1137 Erie Street and the other at Hwy 95 and Radar Road.

Are these really separate parks?

Smlranger,
Several years ago we overnighted in the parking lot of the BANC CLUB, 360
n main St.
Dinner and breakfast the next morning were excellent. We could not eat it all.
This is a truckers favorite.
Go real slow in T. Our escort beeped constantly. A lot of cops around (for security) ya!

I drove through there today from Reno to Vegas but didn't stop. I seem to recall one is before you hit town and the other at the Station is in town. According to Google, they are different. Here's what I found:


Tonopah Station RV (775) 482-9777 20 spots
Tonopah Station Hotel Casino Restaurant and RV Park - Tonopah Nevada Hotel

Tonopah RV (775) 482-1700
http://tonopahrv.com/

According to their site, they are new.

Be aware that there's some road construction north of Tonopah on the 95. Down to one lane today and they were using a follow me car. Only held us up 20 minutes or so but worth mentioning.

Thanks, that explains it well. We have seen a fair amount of road construction since we left the Oregon coast, especially on 101 in CA.

While driving that route we would continue to Beatty NV and stay in a campground just at the north side of the town (east side of hwy 95). Beatty RV Park Review.

Another option.

Looks like the Tonopah RV (775-482-1700) is a better choice now, free WIFI and cable. Newer for big rigs. Frost Free Water hookups! Tells you how cold it is in that pass - over 6000 ft.

Brian, Beatty is probably a bit farther than we normally drive in one day. It will depend on road conditions and how much time we can make.

We were just through there in August. I would not stay at the casino. We stayed at Joyland and it was OK. Beatty is a much better option for about a 30 minute drive.

OK, if Beatty is only another 30 minutes drive, we may consider that. My map suggested Beatty was another hour south of Tonopah.

Forgot to ask.... any decent places to eat in Tonopah? Nothing fancy but just some good, basic diner type food?

It's over 90 miles from Tonopah to Beatty, about an hour and a half the way I drive.

Tonopah Brewery has excellent Barbeque if you like that type of dinner. They also have the cleanest rest rooms in Tonopah. We usually go through there about lunch time, so we always stop. Their beer is not very memorable, but it is better than Budweiser.

There's also a Mexican restaurant on the east side of the highway that's pretty decent. I just can't recall the name of the place.

Other than that, it's pretty slim pickin's.

Talking

TONOPAH, NV story:

...we left beautiful southern CA this past mid-February, heading to warranty work at the Thor service center in Wakarusa IN - making some stops along the way - the first being RENO/CARSON CITY NV...

...we left and traveled thru SanBernandino, and up the east side of the Sierras - beautiful ride - with an overnight at the 'Astro Burger' at KramerJunctionCA...

... started seeing some signs of snow, so we kept an eye on the weather ...

...arrived in BISHOP, CA where we were struck by the large LED road sign that read: 'CHAINS MAY BE REQUIRED AHEAD'... hhhmmmmm....
we bees from central GA and not used to any chains, or even much snow!

....decided to take a turn on Hwy6 toward TONOPAH, NV for the night...

...arrived in Tonopah, where there was more snow and ice than anywhere else we had seen, but now we were here, so let's stay for the night at the STATION RV PARK. Let me get some fuel first - at a nice easy access fuel station right on the main road - but almost got stuck as motorcoach spun the tires trying to exit up a hill... backed up a little to get a 'running start' and was finally able to exit out onto the street...

Because the rv park is located BEHIND a shopping center, and I wasn't sure how to navigate in/out due to snow and ice - I stopped on the roadside just past the Station, unhooked the toad, and drove down to the 'park'...

I found that it was covered in snow and ice and no other RVs were parked there. They were trying to clean the street and sites, but I decided that manuvering thru the vehicles in the parking lot to get to the rv sites might be too risky... so...

we decided to forge on all the way to VEGAS(but we stopped in beautiful PARUMPH, NV instead, as it was getting dark. A nice park there, right off the main drag, for a few nights - and with a bonus: HotTub!!)

anyway - Tonopah is probably a beautiful place and a nice time - maybe more in the spring/fall months! Can't wait to go back...

Alternative to RV park in Tonopah

There is a great little Boondocking site in a Tonopah just as you are leaving town going towards Beatty. It's up on a slight ridge next to the BLM office - a flat space to park, shielded from the highway, quiet and private. We used it going both directions en route to Death Valley last year.

Here's a description from my file of a great spot used by us to spend a night and solely for RVers.


"10 mi W on US-6/95. Miller’s Rest area w/designated RV camping (No trucks allowed). Large open area away from highway. Clean rest rooms, dump, water. When entering you’ll come to a parking lot. Drive further, past the restrooms, to the next lot which is signed for Overnight RVers. A great spot"!
