Our KOA is a beautiful Oasis, where the high desert meets the mountains of the Great Basin National Park

The Ely KOA proves there's more to Nevada than casinos and neon. It's where the high desert meets the mountains of Great Basin National Park, with meadows, forests, wildflowers, streams and lakes - and the fascinating marble/limestone formations of Lehman Caves. Explore ghost towns left behind from the 19th-century silver rush. Ride the Ghost Train of Ely for a trip into the past. Recreation includes hiking and OHV trails, garnet hunting, fishing, boating and swimming on Cave Lake. Enjoy a beautiful RV Site with a patio area, private lawn and LP gas grill. Or choose an extra-long pull thru. If primitive is your thing, you'll love the lush, grassy Tent Sites, newly renovated restrooms and Camping Kitchen. Or, give Glamping a try! This campground has rustic, comfy Cabins, authentic Teepees, Conestoga Covered Wagons, and several Deluxe lodges & Cabins - complete with full baths, kitchenettes and LP gas grills. Family fun includes a playground, disc golf, volleyball & basketball courts, horseshoe pits, cornhole & even a croquet set are available. Two dog walk areas and on-site corrals keep your four-legged travel companions happy. Max pull thru: 95 feet.
