One of the more unique areas you can visit with a motorhome rental is the eastern section of Nevada bordering on Utah; if this sounds promising, then you should look at booking a site at Wendover KOA, near West Wendover. This year-round RV park will provide you with a relaxing environment; you can enjoy the seasonal pool and restock your supplies at the camp store. The park has restrooms with showers and laundry facilities where you can freshen up and prepare for the days ahead. This RV campground is pet-friendly and has a dog run for the furry family members, as well as a playground and sports court for the children. If you'd like to enjoy your meals under an open sky, there are picnic tables you can use.
Most of the sites are big enough to accommodate larger rental RVs, and most of them have full hookups with 30 or 50 amp electricity. You'll have access to Wi-Fi for staying in touch with family back home and cable TV channels for staying current with your shows. RV camping at Wendover KOA means you'll have access to firewood and propane if you're running low. Camping at Wendover KOA also allows you access to a shuttle that can take you into town and the local casinos should you decide to try your hand at the tables.
Almost right on the border between Utah and Nevada, Wendover KOA is only ten miles from the Bonneville Salt Flats, where some of the fastest car speed records in the world have been set. Races are usually scheduled between July and October and attract competitors from all over the world. South of Wendover KOA and just across the state line is Blue Lake, a popular destination for hiking and mountain biking. You can also scuba dive here, go fishing for bass and bluegill, or practice your photography on the environment and local wildlife. The Crittenden Reservoir is worth visiting for both its importance as a human-made structure, its value for managing natural resources, and for the natural resources themselves.
Book an RV in Elko County, and you will be one step closer to the vacation of your dreams. One of the unique features of an RV camping vacation is being able to take it wherever you go, like a hotel room on wheels (and then some). Start by taking it to Fish Springs National Wildlife Refuge where you can observe the wildlife and participate in environmental education lectures (you should call ahead to arrange these). The refuge is a haven for migratory bird species and an opportunity to practice wildlife photography. It has a self-guided auto tour route with signage describing the habitat, resident species, and conservation methods used to manage the park. The park is about a 2.5-hour drive from Wendover KOA, so you might want to consider making it an overnight trip. More information can be had at the refuge office, open weekdays during business hours.
If observation is only part of what you would like to do, head for Bear River Migratory Bird Refuge where you can combine environmental education with hiking, fishing, and hunting. The refuge has a Wildlife Education Center with a trail starting at the center and leading into the nearby wetland habitat. It also has a self-guided auto tour route that is one-way, so it's best to pull over if you wish to stop and take photos. The refuge is located at the mouth of the Bear River as it empties into the Great Salt Lake, making it an important freshwater component of the lake and an attraction for the resident bird and mammal species. It is also slightly far from Wendover KOA, making it a full-day or overnight trip.
A much closer destination for you is White Horse Mountain, a short 40 miles or so from Wendover KOA. This outdoor haven can be accessed from the east or the west; the west access can be difficult though, and there is a jeep track on the eastern face leading to the summit. From the summit, you will have a clear, unobstructed 360-degree view. The area is named after the wild horses that reside here, and you will see evidence that they were there; if you're really lucky, you may even see one or a group of them.
When it's time to start thinking of creature comforts, start by heading for Wendover, just slightly east of Wendover KOA across the state border. This small town has a friendly charm as well as unique attractions like the Tree of Utah, a concrete art structure that is repainted with each new season. It's reported to be the only tree on the salt flats. Another work of art is the Sun Tunnels, which are best viewed at sunrise or sunset, or at night when you can stand inside the tunnels and look up at the stars through holes in the tunnel's roof. This attraction is hard to find, and you should drive slowly on the dirt/gravel road, but you can get there safely by motorhome. You'll need water, snacks, and sunscreen, but your RV rental should have everything you need.
Carrying on, head for Salt Lake City. Be sure to take the trolley car tour, which passes by Temple Square and the Governor's Mansion before stopping at the Utah State Capitol. The tour must be booked in advance, and seating is limited. If you love music, Utah is renowned for its Tabernacle Choir, and this is your chance to take in a show. The choir rehearses once a week before putting on a show; these happen on different days, but you are welcome to attend both.
City life or outdoor adventure, whatever you want you will find it here and Wendover KOA is where it will begin.
