  1. Jolean Dulaney says:

    Are reservations able to be made or is it a first come first served?

  2. Ed Pruss says:

    If there are no reservations, is there another similar park nearby that might have additional spaces for overflow?

    Thank you,

    Ed

  3. Nancy Wiley says:

    Hello,
    Is the dump station still closed? Also, is April generally a busy time of year there for camping?
    Thank you.

    Nancy

    • Hi Nancy,
      I’d call Washoe Lake State Park (775 687-4319) directly to check and see if the dump station is still closed. It generally becomes available late April/early May through Fall. April isn’t too busy up there – still a little chilly, but you’ll have some camping neighbors.

      • Just checking to see if the camp sites have been full, hopefully I can snag on elate Friday evening?

        thanks

      • HI Buzz,

        Campsitephotos.com is not associated with the campgrounds listed on our site. We provide the photos of each campsite, campground info and links to make reservations (if available). You may try calling the park direct to see if they have some open spots at Washoe Lake State Park: 775 687-4319.
        Best of luck!
