In a dense stand of Jeffrey Pines 20 miles south of Reno just off U.S. 395, is Davis Creek Park. This campground/day use area offers outstanding views of Washoe Lake and Slide Mountain. Individual picnic sites surround a small scenic pond upon which non-motorized boats are allowed. Nature trails are marked for a self-guided hike among the native flora and fauna. Group hikes may be arranged to explore the surrounding Davis Creek environs by calling the Ranger.
The park has 62 overnight campsites with a dump station. Although there are no hook-ups, longer travel trailers can be accommodated at 19 sites. Hot showers are available year-round. Group camping and picnic facilities are available by reservation. Contact the park ranger for group camping reservations or our Parks Administration office for group picnic reservations. An equestrian trailhead provides access to the Toiyabe National Forest.

Nice place; Convenient overnighter spot.
We spent a weekend here in early March, 2011. There was still a couple of feet of snow on the ground making it a popular spot for snow shoing and cross country skiing with day users. Only 10 sites were open for winter use. Heated bathrooms, hot water, and free showers are really nice to have when winter camping. Ice skating is no longer allowed on the pond. Overall a nice spot. The only negative is it is only one half mile from Highway 395 so you do get the road noise.
