Reviews for Rye Patch State Recreation Area

| Great place

We stayed here over night. Pd 14.00 for out of state camping. Had a nice shady paved spot but not level. Most spots are not level. Has dump station and potable water. No electric. No Verizon cell service except on the main road and spotty at that.

| Beautiful but hot!

Located between Winnemucca and Reno this State Park was beautiful. Lots of spaces with shade (beware of low hanging branches). We enjoyed the quiet of the park. Very hot in the summer - as it’s in the desert. Parked close to the group area which would be perfect for a family reunion with bbq pit, horseshoe area. Net for volleyball or other games and lots of shade!

This was easy access from I-80. There were many options to choose, as it was Sunday afternoon and off-season. Great lake views and quiet. We chose the boat ramp parking lot as we had a motorhome and tow vehicle, and this was easiest for a quick exit in the morning. The bathrooms were nice and there even was showers

We stayed over Memorial Day weekend. It was a little cool and rainy and that seemed to keep the crowds away. First night, we stayed in the west campground. Sites are all gravel and have a covered picnic table and a fire pit. All sites are back in and there were no hook ups. Just dump station and water available, along with bathroom and showers. Our site was mostly level, but still needed a leveling block. West side campground is where boat launch ramp is located. Also, sites in the west campground are close together. Second day we moved to the lower campground because we snagged a prime site right on the the river. Most of the sites in the lower campground are paved, most are back in, and include picnic table and fire ring. These camp sites are a little more spaced apart than the west side campground. There are some overhanging tree branches in a few lower sites, so check your site closely before committing to it. Overall, camping at Rye Patch was a positive experience and we plan to come back.

Close but far enough from highway that it is quiet. Water and table only. Drive to dump station. At night, lights attract lots of very small flys.
