we boondocked in the parking lot next to the banc club casino on main street.
some truckers park there overnight. the food in the restaurant was good and reasonably priced.
watch your speed closely in tonopah. our radar detector alerted constantly all the time we were there.
there is a roadside rest a few miles north of tonopah that has a dump station which we used. the water was good too. my dw says that they had rv parking too.

Millers Rest Area 10 miles West of Tonopah. They have an overnight area all the way to the back of the rest area and no trucks are allowed. Nice large, quiet place to spend the night, have done it many times.

There's a casino on the main drag with RV spots behind it. $16 for minimal accommodations. The McDonalds across the street has a huge area for trucks and RVs.

Tonapah is a great place. It has a fascinating museum which includes artifacts from Death Valley as well as the mining in the area. The Senior Citizens Center is interesting, there are some characters in that area. Driving around the town will reveal houses which must be 150 years old and last maintained 100 years ago and people live in them. Now. Rows of them.

Worth spending time. Not many places like it.

Millers is treat, as is next to the in town casino parking, or just south of town on BLM land, or go to Alkili where there is a pond and you may be rewarded with sights of wild things taking a sip, or hundreds of pull over places from Tonopah to, and including Beatty.

You are in a high elevation. We came thru there on 12/6. I like Beatty as it is warmer and lower Elevation. Baily's RV Hot Spring on 95 East Beatty is a great place to stay and use the hot pools. Sand Hill a little further towards Vegas is a good free place to stay a few days. There is a sign about 15 miles down 95 (from Beatty). Just turn right and go a mile or so and dirt road goes toward Sand Hill. I take my 40 foot MH down there with no problems. You could also go towards Death Valley and Riolite ghost town from Beatty. It will be warm in Death Valley!!
