I just learned from a Casita site that Google can be used to locate campgrounds. . Tom Trostel
Have a text-message cell phone?
You can get Google to do the same thing on your cell phone. Try this Google SMS {Short Message Service] link, Enter search term: "campground", and the City and state (or zipcode). Demo is for your computer; you'd have to download the program before it would work on a compatible cell phone.

Google SMS can be handy to use for a bunch of other "inquiries" via your cell, including phone number lookup without that onerous "information" charge by your phone service.

Would rather everyone stay on topic and post reviews, but this is good information for those looking for campground information.

Washoe State Park, Nevada. On 395 between Reno and Carson City.

South bound you go by Washoe City and take exit to State Park. North bound you leave Carson City go up a grade and take exit to Park about 2 miles off of 395. Tall Sage brush and some shade trees. Spectacular view of Sierras. No hook ups, water available. Nice showers and toilets.

We always stop and have a Basque meal in Carson City, and test our luck. Helpful state park employees . We always stop for at least one night.

A good alternative to Washoe State Park in those hot summer months...

Davis Creek Park, essentially across 395 from Washoe State Park on Old Rt. 395. We were there in late summer 2004. Rt. 395 was under construction north of Carson City, but the exit at that time was the same as the one for the state park, except you turn left instead of right heading north out of Carson City.

The big difference is shade! Neither park has hookups, but Davis Creek, a county campground, is mostly trees. We were there for 5 days and our black cat was most comfortable. And it was really hot that summer... Washoe Lake was dry!

Best and cheapest breakfast in town is at Cactus Jack's, downtown Carson City across from the Nugget.

Thanks John we were at Washoe one summer and it was hot. We try to roll that way in the late spring or fall. Camp our way down 395 in the sierras . To many nice places to list some are crowded on weekl ends

We have found that we like Meteor Crator RV Park. I canít remember if it has Internet. All sites are pull though. Cost $10 per night with Passport America. Very friendly and helpful. Clean, Quiet, Far enough off I-40 to be quiet yet easy on, easy off. Near Winslow, AZ.
Also, easy on/off I-40 in Winslow is Homolovi Ruins State Park campground which was a nice stopover.

Thought I would add this one. We sure enjoyed this place on way back from DC. Real shady and a pretty lake and a store across the street.
