Davis Creek Park
Davis Creek Campground is located in the foothills of the Carson Range. The campground is set in its namesake, the Davis Creek Regional Park, and is approximately 20 minutes south of Reno and 10 minutes north of Carson City, not far from the US 395/I-580 Freeway at the Bowers Mansion Road intersection. The Davis Creek Campground is located just inside the tree line. The campground is broken into two zones, front and rear. Neither one of them is necessarily prettier, but the rear one seems to be less crowded. The front zone has some RV Pull-Through sites. Please note that some places are tight for larger RV’s…may take a lot of negotiating to get through and parked. Most sites are quite shady in a dense stand of Jeffrey pine. All the drives throughout the camp are paved in asphalt. Each site has a fire ring, separate barbecue grill and picnic table. There is a pond a 1/4 mile away in Davis Creek Park. You can fish there in Summer, or ice-skate when the pond freezes over in Winter. The park is a trailhead for the Ophir Creek Trail. This long and strenuous hike gains approx. 4,000 feet to Mt. Rose Campground in the Tahoe Meadows area. From there you can connect to the Tahoe Rim Trail. Washoe Lake State Park is only 10 minutes away on the other side of Washoe Valley.
