Washoe Lake State Park, Nevada

This summer has been a summer of vehicle-related repairs and services, both scheduled and unexpected. After Central Oregon, we were back in Eugene for several services for both Stimpy and Ren. On a positive side, staying in Eugene area longer allowed us to have more visits with our friends.

At the moment everything seems to be taken care of, at least for now. It’s time to get back on our plan to head south. First stop is Washoe Lake State Park in Nevada.

We stayed at the state park campground. It was a well-designed campground. We had a lot of privacy but it’s also because of the low season. The sites are for dry-camping only, no hook-ups. There are showers and flush toilets available.

Washoe Lake was dry when we were here. I remembered when we passed by this area in July about 2 years ago, it had quite a bit of water. Nevertheless, this is a great base if you want to spend time in Carson city, Reno, or Lake Tahoe area.

A trail from the campground leads to the "beach". No water in the lake this time of the year.

One thought on “Washoe Lake State Park, Nevada

  1. Our first year full-time was riddled with repairs and mishaps. I’m so glad we kept going, because those window views are definitely worth it and the sunsets in the west are the best 🙂
