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. Just off Interstate 80 and steps from the Truckee River, you really can have it all when you book an RV in Washoe County. When you’re RV camping at Reno KOA at Boomtown, you’ll only be fifteen minutes' drive away from the “Biggest Little City in the World,” but also surrounded by nature. Though there’s no need to head down to the city if you’re looking for gaming, the Boomtown Hotel and Casino just outside the park has all the table games and slots you could desire.
The RV campground isn’t short on amenities either, providing full hookups for your camper rental with 50 amp electrical capacity. The RV sites are about 55 feet long, so most RV rentals should fit. During the summer months, there’s a pool available – perfect for cooling off after a long day in the desert sun or hiking the Sierra Nevada. A hot tub is available year-round for evenings of pure relaxation. There’s even a dog park where your four-legged friend roam can around, making this one of the more pet-friendly RV parks in the area.
Lake Tahoe will almost certainly be the centerpiece of your rental RV adventure, thanks to its year-round recreational opportunities. In the winter, Tahoe Donner Downhill Ski Area and Boreal Mountain Resort are some of the most popular winter sports destinations. Come summer, the beaches of Lake Tahoe are packed with tourists from San Francisco and Sacramento enjoying the clean mountain air and swimming in the crystal-clear water.
But Tahoe is only the most well-known of Reno’s outdoor hot spots; there are also some much smaller gems like Cottonwood Park in Sparks, which runs along the Truckee River for about three miles. This is a great place to do some jogging or cycling; there’s no traffic, and you’ll have beautiful views all along the way.
Idlewild Park on the western edge of town is Reno’s premier green space and meeting place. Every weekend, you’ll see dozens of couples and families picnicking here and enjoying the peaceful setting. On Fridays, though, you will be treated to a bevy of food trucks serving delicious and unique dishes, all in one convenient location.
If you’ve ever dreamed of being a cowboy, several outfitters in the Reno/Tahoe area offer trail rides on horseback. These adventures are suitable for visitors who’ve never ridden or even seen a horse before, with all of the animals trained to be gentle and relatively slow-moving.
When camping at Reno KOA at Boomtown, you’ll have two options for city adventures: Reno, NV and Truckee, CA. The former has big casinos, bright lights, and a nightlife that can rival any large city. Reno is more than just casinos though; it’s also a vibrant college town (University of Nevada) with loads of hip bars and restaurants to explore. The latter is a laid-back community filled with gold rush history and a ski town vibe. If you’re hoping to get away from the crowds and enjoy life at a slower pace, Truckee will be the place for you.
If you’re an animal lover or someone in your crew is, you’ll want to check out the Sierra Safari Zoo. It’s the largest wildlife park in the state with over 50 different species making their home there including lions, deer, lynx, and a wide variety of colorful birds. This is a great place to learn about wildlife and the role they play in their various ecosystems.
Those travel trailer camping near Reno in September won’t want to miss the Reno Air Races, often touted as the fastest motorsport on Earth. Daredevil pilots fly tricked out WWII-era fighter planes and experimental aircraft to zoom around at 400+ mph and take home the title in their class. It’s one of the only air races of its kind held in the United States.
