    labor day weekend trip: Aune & Lapitan family
    Amazing place to visit, love the coolness of the gorge. The hike was also beautiful. Recommend to all & check out the beautiful scenery of NEVADA

  2. Gerard Weisscher says:

    Hi there,
    We travel by tent and car next year in May through Nevada. Is it possible to make a reservation on your campsite Cathedral Gorge State Park Campground for a tent site with two adults? We will arrive in the period from May 22nd till May 25th. We want to stay just for one night , but have no exact date.
    Can you tell me if it is necessary and possible to make this reservation?

    We would be very glad to hear from you.
    Gerard and Maria Weisscher

    • Hi Gerard,
      Cathedral Gorge State Park campground is first-come, first-serve (no reservations). It its open all year. May 25 is Memorial Day and I suspect the campground will be busy that weekend.

  3. Dave Lunstroth says:

    Accommodations for horses??
    Would like to stop and hike the trail on our way from Arizona to idaho
    This is a VERY COOL website

    • Thanks Dave! Glad you like our site.
      Campers with horse trailers (and horses) can camp in the group area at the end of the turnaround (not in main campground area). Equestrian campers can also set up portable corrals in the group area. However, there are no equestrian facilities (water, corral, tie bar, etc.). Hope you have a great trip!

  4. Wondered if would be hard to get a site if come on weekday in May 2021?

  5. Loretta says:

    How much is campsite per night? And how do you pay ? Cash or card

    • Hi Loretta,
      All Campsites at Cathedral Gorge State Park are first-come, first-serve and you’ll pay at the campground (ranger station). I’m not sure if they take credit cards. Here are the rates:
      Day use entrance fee: $5.00 per vehicle (Non-NV Vehicles $10.00 per vehicle)
      Camping: $15.00 per vehicle, per night (Non-NV Vehicles: $20.00 per vehicle, per night) + $10.00 for sites with utility hook ups
      Bike in: $2.00 per bike

  6. Hi,
    I am wondering if the sites have enough room for an RV and vehicle in same site, with room for 1 tent.

  7. Wondering if a large RV stands a chance of finding a suitable campsite arriving midweek late September? Thanks in advance for any assistance ­čÖé

    • Hi Shelley,
      I’d say your chances are really good with a late September mid-week arrival to get a campsite suitable for a large RV. I also recommend calling the park as they are generally good about answering your call and giving their opinion. The number is: 775 728-4460
