Continuing our journey along I-50 after leaving Delta, Utah, we had a shorter day and stayed at Valley View RV Park in Ely.  The park is located just outside of town on Interstate 93.

The park is on the interstate, and because we asked for a pull-through so we didn’t have to unhook, we were right on the freeway.  The park is nice and seems to be clean.  There are grassy areas and big trees throughout the park.

The park has laundry and full hookups in most spots.  The wifi was not working, but the Verizon signal was strong so was able to work through it.

Ely Nevada is a small town located in the heart of the White Pine Mountains. Sitting at Nevada’s eastern edge of the “Loneliest Road in America,” Ely is a remote mountain town. Although it is only a few hours drive from Las Vegas, Ely feels like a world away. The town is home to a variety of businesses, including several hotels, restaurants, and shops. Ely also offers a variety of outdoor activities, including hiking, camping, and fishing.

The town is also home to several historical sites, including the Nevada Northern Railway Museum. The Nevada Northern Railway arrived in 1906. Now, this well-preserved short-line railway draws visitors from all over the world to ride on its queens of steam and historic diesel engines. Murals, art galleries, and a sculpture garden decorate the historic downtown. Ely is an excellent place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life and enjoy the beauty of the Nevada desert.  There are also great recreation opportunities in places like Great Basin National Park, Cave Lake State Park, Ward Charcoal Ovens State Park, and Ward Mountain Recreation Area.
