After driving a LONG way from Ely, Nevada to Fernley on Highway 50, The Loneliest Road in America (so true!), we stayed at Desert Rose RV Park about 4 miles east of town.

This was a nice park, again along the freeway, but there was a big wall between the park and the freeway so it wasn’t so loud.  The staff was very nice, they escorted us to our site, and we had a pull-through, however, it was not long enough for the truck and trailer, so we did disconnect.  It wasn’t a big deal as we wanted to go into town and do some shopping.  There were lots of options in town for shopping, eating, and even entertainment (casinos).

The park had full hookups, wide streets, trees, grass, laundry, and a small store in the office.   It is a great place to stop on your trip through Nevada.  You can see from the photos that smoke from the California fires was pretty heavy in the skies when we went through Nevada.
