    Default campground reviews?

    Will fight the fight and go Memorial weekend. Hoping is too far to go for most people.
    Any info on staying at the campground? Actually my first trip to Temple Bar in years.
    Any input would be nice.

    Been going to Temple Bar my entire life, just got back from there on Sunday...

    You mean you'll be out there Labor Day?

    Let me start off by saying I've never spent a night in the campground, but from what I've witnessed and heard from others... Camping isn't what it use to be, and by that I mean not many people camp in the in the campground like they once did, so you should have no problem getting a spot. If you're bringing your RV, it's all dry camping, and they rangers do make a pass through just after 10pm to enforce the generator quiet hours.

    If you dont have your Lake Mead National Recreation Area Use Pass, you'll have to purchase one for the tow vehicle & one for each vessel, at the toll booth around about mile marker 12/13 on the way in, that is if its open when you drive through, it closes at 6pm.

    Ice is $3.75 per 7lb bag, only bought gas up there once early this season and it was $4.+ for 87 on land, the gas dock is slightly higher. If your boat needs 89 or above bring some octane booster or gas up before heading in.

    Let me know if you got any other questions.

    All the best

    They do have spots with RV hookups spread throughout the trailer village. There is almost always a few spots available. Not to many people use the campground, most people who camp, dry camp along the shore. The NPS has a restroom set up about 3 miles west of TBar, just above a nice sandy beach. There are pay showers(25 cents) and laundry on the East side of the trailer village. They provide a shuttle during store hours.
    Most likely I will be there for the Holiday. Let me know if you need any assistance.

    Default Temple Bar Labor Day

    Thank you for the kind replies. Yes, went Labor Day weekend. Guess will do Memorial next year.
    Ended up taking camper to campground. Did not have the sense to check out the Trailer Village for hook-ups. Damn.
    Used the generator at night for the AC. Kind of cheated a little bit on the hours. The Ranger took pity on us I guess.
    Although were probably, at most, 5 sites occupied in the whole campground. Really felt like we had the place to ourselves.

    Great time on the water! Well worth the extra drive. Though I would have preferred an easier drive home.
    Next time might take the drive down to Searchlight and avoid Stateline on the I-15. What a zoo.

    I have a LaveyCraft and was first time I had seen more than one in an area.

    Thanks again for the input and the offer of assistance.
