Grand Sierra Resort RV Park - Huge Lot

Grand Sierra Resort & RV Park


Among our travels we have stayed at many different RV parks from State run to private facilities. But we have never stayed at one that has a larger lot size than the Grand Sierra Resort and RV Park in Reno, Nevada!

We were easily able to pull in our SUV toad alongside our 40' motorcoach and still have plenty of space to sit outside with our dogs in our lot. Most other RV parks have had us either park our toad in a designated parking area or have just been too small or too narrow to be comfortable.

The park also has two dog parks separated only by a short wooden fence; so if your dog is a jumper he can easily jump over the fence and into the other dog park area. Dog poop stations are located in each park and the bag dispenser is always full. The only problem we have encountered is that other visitors to the park do not abide by leash laws and are constantly walking their dogs around the park without being leashed. The problem arises when their unleashed dogs approach other leashed dogs that have an aggressive tendency. If your dog doesn't respond immediately to the 'come' command then why bother walking him unleashed?

The office staff are all sweet and very helpful with plenty of suggestions to area attractions and businesses. The onsite laundry is fairly large, although the washing machines have fairly small, one-load-only, tubs. There are three bath houses with three shower stalls in each one and they are all cleaned every morning. Security drives around the park on a very regular basis.

While at the RV Park you can walk over to the Resort to catch a $4 movie, go bowling, workout in the fitness room, visit the spa, eat one of the yummy restaurants and gamble in the casino.

Two caveats: In order to have proper water flow you will be required to purchase a water flow regulator for your RV. The Grand Sierra Resort and RV Park's water pressure is 100psi and can cause damage to your RV if not regulated accordingly. The WiFi is very spotty. The more RVs in the park the less chance you have of actually connecting. We contacted the front desk, the hotel business center and their internet supplier to no avail.

If you are driving through Reno into Nevada or to go down Donner's Pass into California, a stop at the Grand Sierra Resort and RV Park is definitely a must.
