Shamrock RV Park – Reno, NV

I thought I’d take a minute to let you know about the gem of an RV Park we stayed at during our visit to Reno. It was so comfortable we checked in for two days and ended up staying for nearly six weeks!

Shamrock RV Park is located at 260 E. Parr Blvd in the North West part of Reno, Nevada.

The park is located about two miles north of the strip in downtown Reno and just a hop, skip and a jump from interstates 80, 395 and 580. This convenient location means you are just minutes away from everything you could possibly need. Restaurants, casinos, mall, grocery, and outlet shopping, and of course beautiful scenery are all within a short distance.

The park has 121 paved sites that are set up to accommodate not only your rig comfortably but your tow vehicle and/or toad as well. The side by side parking of rig and vehicle provides ample distance between neighbors and adds a great deal to your sense of privacy.

Plenty of space between sites

We had some cold weather and snow move into the area, which not only shortened our stay but made for less than stellar pictures. But I hope you’ll get the idea.

While shopping and night life was just a short distance away, we couldn’t help but feel we were out in a rural area.

The park has propane available on site as well as free wi-fi. The rates were very reasonable for overnight stays as well as by the month. Cable was also available for $2 a day.

The entire property was exceptionally clean. Not a day went by when we didn’t see a member of the park staff outside raking, sweeping, pruning and doing top-notch landscape and janitorial upkeep.

As a matter of fact, this will be the first RV Park Review in nearly two years that I’ll be able to say I actually used the bathhouse facilities and didn’t just take pictures! The temperatures in the teens caused our bathroom plumbing to freeze and we were forced to take advantage of the showers and restrooms at the park. I should say lucky enough to take advantage of them!

There is also an extremely large handicapped shower stall as well as restroom…

If you're traveling with someone needing to use a shower chair or perhaps you want to bathe the little ones at the same time. Plenty of room!

The park takes advantage of solar power for hot water and boy does it work! It felt wonderful to let the hot water massage away the stress of knowing our plumbing was frozen and that we would have to make tracks to beat a deeper freeze and more snow.

The vanity area is large and there is a separate small shelf and outlet for drying your hair or applying makeup. It’s a nice touch 🙂

The laundry room is very clean as well and open 24 hours a day for your convenience…

A nice lending library and comfy chairs if you like to wait for your laundry…

The store was well stocked with a variety of things including some staples, craft items and jewelry…

All in all Shamrock RV Park was a pot of gold for us. The location ended up being perfect for work we needed to have done on the truck, treks off the beaten path and even a dentist was easy to find on short notice. Everyone on the staff was friendly and more than accommodating.

I highly recommend this park if you are going to be in the Reno/Sparks area of Nevada for a day or two… or a month or two!

You can reach the park via the following link and contact numbers.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the park and in Reno.

If we ever end up back in that neck of the woods our first choice to park the rig will definitely be Shamrock RV Park.
