    Looking for a place to camp near Reno

    I'm driving up from Chico, CA on Saturday to race Peavine on Sunday and am looking for a good place to camp with the wife and dog. A designated campground is preferred. It's too late to get anything from Reserve America (they have a three day pre booking window) and everything else I can find are Casino parking lots.
    I had planned to camp at Boca Spring but can't reserve it and I would be getting up there about 8:30 pm so first come first serve is a little tricky.
    Also driving a car with low ground clearance so I can't do any 4WD roads. Thanks for your help!

    Try Davis Creek. They have showers, water, bear lockers, and its 20 minutes from town. Figuring out how to get there is tricky with the construction though.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I would prefer something north or east of Reno as i'm coming from Chico. Even a decent RV park would be ok. Anyone have any experience with Males Station Campground outside of Verdi?

    If that is the campground next to Boomtown, you should be ok. That looks like a pretty decent place.
