Fifteen rural acres in Stagecoach (yes, really!), NV, 23 miles east of Carson City, 1 mile off of the historic Pony Express route of Highway 50, "The Loneliest Road in America," gateway to unlimited BLM backcountry adventures.

As soon as we arrived Patricia offered us Iced Tea to cool off, and showed us the campsite--a cleared plot about 100 feet from her house (the toilet is a bathroom in her house). She showed us the water hose and electricity access point in the little shed next to her home. We were cozy and had a beautiful view of the stars--it was a nice place to camp as we were passing through.

Our breakfast setup.Cool view of the mountains off in the distance.Eva getting the bedding set up for the night.Got to see a beautiful sunset on a cloudless sky!

Patricia was extremely accommodating! She offered her laundry room, gave us a jug of drinking water, and allowed us to borrow her table and chairs to enjoy the desert landscape as the sun set. She also gave us a tarp and umbrella for our tent site! Bathroom access in her house was open all night. Her quick, continuous communication leading up to the night we stayed helped us know exactly how to get there and arrange plans accordingly.

Pat was very helpful and responsive before I arrived. She helped me sort out the best path home through a snow storm. She went above and beyond to make my experience great. Would definitely recommend.

We were four students going for a weekend trip to Lake Tahoe and camping at Pat's place for the two nights.
Pat was very kind and helpful, she gave us great advice on the places to visit and lent us some maps for our journey.
The campground itself is very nice, we had access to a toilet and a shower and Pat offered us drinking water. We were very satisfied with our stay, thanks a lot!

The camp site was easy to find with Pats directions. The site was well maintained and just as pictured. Pat is a very interesting person who was welcoming, showed me around, even helped me set my tent up! She was knowledgable about the local area and had lots of advice on what to see and even helpful tips for the rest of my trip. The camp site faces the neighbors coral that has wild mustangs in it and a rooster that is going to make sure you get uo to see the fantastic sunrises! The coyotes are many and they serenaded me everynight but did not get close enough to be any threat.

Beautiful sunsets Dinner at Stagecoach AcresThat sky though!Wild mustangs everywhere!
