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.
