Campimg at Pyramid Lake on Saturday and Sunday

Post by flatfish » Sun Aug 19, 2007 12:03 pm

How is camping at Pyramid Lake on the Reservation the weekend before the gates open? Is the Tribe burner freindly or should we find another place to camp? I am aware of the camping fees and the deep sand to deal with. Are there other burners that have camped there. :?:

The Paiute tribe has been very nice to Burners over the years as long as you follow the laws of their community, just like you would in any small town. Remember that you're camping in conservative Nevada and not inside BRC and you should be fine.

We camped at Pyramid Lake last year, the night before we went in to BM.
It's a great stopover place and you can swim in the lake. Not crowded at all when we were there. Just a few other campers on the Sunday night before regular BM entry. A few fire spinners which was fun and got us in the mood even more!

Just don't expect there to be anything going on. You need to be happy with an empty campground. And it is very desolate, but beautiful.

The easiest Pyramid Campsites are just west of Nixon.

It is nice for a day or two, if you like being alone.
