Overnight stays are okay, but the lot is cramped, so you probably won't want to linger. No hookups or facilities, although the casino is a two-minute walk away. —Chuck Woodbury, RVtravel.com
Stockman's Hotel and Casino
Elko, Nevada


Cost: $0.00
Description
You can park in this big, ugly parking lot on 4th Street for free. It’s a handy location for walking to nearby casinos and businesses. Elko is a logical stop between Salt Lake City and Reno on I-80. So this could come in handy for a quick stop to catch some shut-eye. To reach here, use Exit 301 off I-80 and head to the downtown area.

El Capitan Casino
Hawthorne, Nevada


Cost: $0.00
Description
For years, this small, downtown casino has welcomed RVers in a big gravel parking lot right behind it. There’s even a dump station. Big rig trucks also stay, so it may not be the quietest place. But the casino is a two-minute walk away with its gaming and small cafe, and the town’s main drag has shops to explore. Hawthorne is a logical stop on a drive from Reno to Las Vegas, although closer to Reno by a long shot. —Chuck Woodbury, RVtravel.com

This one would be quieter that most others. --Chuck Woodbury, RVtravel.com

Free overnight stays are permitted. Best places are in the northeast and southeast corners (the latter popular with truckers) of the massive parking lot.

Description
There is a large, level dirt lot on the northeast east corner of Business 80 and U.S. 93 (the road to Jackpot, Nev., and Idaho), across from the 4-Way Casino. RVers routinely park here. This is a good stop just off I-80 when driving between Salt Lake City and Reno.
