Beautiful, idyllic spot on NV 208 right on the West Walker River. In the shade of a row of stately old cottonwoods, it's quite spacious and has at least four really nice RV spots right in the river.

I was aiming for the Wilson Canyon BLM OHV turnoff a few miles on, when I saw this enticing roadside rest area! It's right across the river from here.

I was probably going to hate the dust and noise of the OHVs anyway, so I am very happy with this!

There are three other campers, one nice RV and two ramshackle affairs that appear to be old dudes living out of their vans.

There but for the grace of god go I.
