Located a short 20 miles from Interstate 80 and Elko Nevada, at the base of the beautiful Ruby Mountains, our "backyard" of adventure awaits you. Just minutes from hiking, fishing, hunting, mountain biking, ATVing, boating and much more we would love to host your RV stay. Our small community is rich in the Basque and Cowboy cultures, represented by several yearly festivals (January- Cowboy Poetry, July- Basque Festival & Silver State Stampede Rodeo) which brings visitors from around the globe. Although, ranching is still a valid part of our livelihood, our current economy is driven by one of the largest North American gold deposits and an industry of mining that surrounds it. Whether you are here to experience our wilderness, explore the trail of the fated Donner Party (home of the Donner Trail Interpretive Center), try your luck in the local casinos, or just enjoy a slice of the simple life by slowing down and relaxing in the wonder of the west, we would love to host your RV stay.
Accommodation Notes: We will do our best to accommodate up to two RVs, however being in the foothills of the rubies presents a challenge for finding somewhat level ground to host multiple longer rigs. We will do our level best to make a spot for you. TOAD Vehicles are welcome, but depending on total length may need to be unhooked and parked sepretly. We do have limited electricity hook up for one RV. You may use your generator till a respecatable hour in consideration of our neighbors (around 9 PM) We have access to water and you are more than welcome to use our hose to fill your tank but it's not the most convienant set up to be hooked up on a continual basis.
We want you to be aware that we have a Golden Retriever that pretty much has the has the run of the property, we will do our best to keep him out of your way. We also have multiple cats that are both indoors and out.
Please contact us and we will we will do our best to try to work out any accommodation hurdles.
Our availability is based around our travel plans which centers around our rotating schedule. Send us an email with you desired dates and we will work to try and coordinate schedules to accommodate your needs.

Not only was the parking great for our 40' motor home but we wouldn't have needed to even unhook our 'toad'. Our site's view of the Ruby Mountains 'pulled us in'. With Ruby's recommendation (as to where to drive) we spent a day sight seeing around and in those mountains. The hosts are SO FLEXIBLE! We had arranged to do something together, but we had something come up and had to leave earlier than scheduled. Our host's were so 'forgiving'. We hope to return some time in the future!
View was spectacular... hiking Lamoille Canyon, spectacular. My hosts Ruby View... spectacular. This was a bit off the beaten path and so worth it, that I stayed an extra day. I love it when Boondockers Welcome brings people together that otherwise would never have met, and lives become richer because of it. Happy I met these guys, I will be back.
We were delighted to meet Ruby View along with their household of kids, cats, and a friendly dog named Charley. They welcomed us with open arms and even provided dinner for us and our travel buddies (we had a total of two rigs, four adults, and two dogs). Their place had a great view of the mountains and the neighborhood was very quiet. We would be thrilled to visit again in the future.
