At the base of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Reno is a city that defies expectations. Once a gold rush hub, it later became a gambling mecca that always came in second to its big brother to the south, Las Vegas. But more recently Reno has sought a change, focusing on the beautiful and often underappreciated landscapes that surround it. Culture has flourished in its downtown where it once held only casinos. That’s not to say you can’t have a good time gambling when you choose an RV rental in Reno, but there’s so much more to explore while you’re there.One of the better places to consider when motorhome camping in the area is Reno KOA at Boomtown.
