    Looking for an idea

    Say you wanted to plan a weekend sightseeing run that involved a couple of interesting sight's. A couple of ghost town's and somewhere to camp for Saturday night. All somewhere around Reno Carson City area where would you go? Would be cool maybe for Halloween.
    In other word's, I'm useless and I could use some help and you guy's live here. Anybody here would be welcome.

    Bodie can be really cold and no camping at the park. The new Walker River Park gets you good access into cool areas. http://parks.nv.gov/parks/walker-river

    My wife and I have been to both Berlin-Ichthyosaur and Walker River. We visited Walker River on its opening weekend so they've probably improved the campground since we saw it. It was pretty bare when we were there. Berlin-Ichthyosaur had the nicest RV campground we'd seen to date. From there, you can visit Berlin and then drive up the canyon past/through several other ghost town sites. We went from there to Ione, "The Town That Refused to Die" and out Buffalo Creek Road to Eastgate on Highway 50. We were driving our Nissan Frontier pickup back then and it was all stock-friendly. We recommend the saloon/restaurant at Middlegate Station, good food there.

    This is a good book to pick up for neat places to check out.

    Good camping at chemung mill or at Masonic. Plus, good camp sites east of bodie headed to aurora, along the creek.
    All relatively close to bodie. Or over at green creek, dunderberg mill or buckeye hot springs.

    Nevada has great ghost towns near the Reno area. Check out Como ghost town area to the SE of Dayton, NV.
