My husband and I have been staying at Shamrock R.V. Park for years. We look forward to coming up to Reno and staying here. We didn't know if we were going to make it this year as our old trailer was totaled! But we bought a new 31' 5th wheel (our old one was 28') and had no problem fitting in our site!!!!The staff goes out of their way to make sure our stay is better than the last!!! Any questions we may have, regarding activities, dining,etc, the staff is always helpful!! They even gave our two sweet dogs treats when we arrived!! So sweet!!!
I would highly recommend this park to anyone traveling to Reno!!! Exceptional!!!
We have returned to the Shamrock RV Park three times, ever since we have been full-time Rving. We have always found the park to be immaculately clean, well maintained and friendly. The staff are without a doubt the friendliest, most welcoming people in all the parks we have been to. I would recommend them without hesitation to anyone wanting a quiet, friendly, clean atmosphere.
My husband and are in Reno for 3 months for work. We have a large dog, which a lot of RV parks will not allow due to "aggressive breed" restrictions. This park was not our first choice, as our first choice did not have any vacancies...so we paid in advance for 1 month here. On the phone, they sounded very dog friendly...... not true. Dogs are NOT allowed on the grass here.... there is a "pet relief" area in the back which is pretty much a glorified litter box. My dogs did not like it in there and did not want to do their business in there either.
The park itself is on a hill making it VERY windy there and you definitely get snow there as well. Just to warn you, prior to snow or rain (which will lead to black ice) they do NOT salt or put anything down..... it gets VERY slippery. Also, since the RVs are parked like sardines, its stressful driving, hoping you wont hit anyone. The spaces are small and NOT level - we barely fit our 5th wheel and truck in the spots. There's also wooden boards along the edge of the spaces, and if you drive over them you get a ticket with a fine.... this makes parking even more challenging.
Talking about tickets, they are not afraid to give you a ticket for any violation.....unless your a permanent resident..... they can break all the rules - allowing dogs to run without a leash, drive through empty spots.... management overlooks those violations for them.
In the winter time YOU are responsible for THEIR water spicket... you have to insulate their portion or you might be faced with damage charges about $250. Why am I responsible for their facilities?
Mail and packages are NOT kept behind the counter, they are out in the open free for anyone to take. Although we did not have any mail/ packages stolen or lost, it was great concern of ours.
I usually use the showers in RV parks as the pressure tends to be better when I wash my hair.... I wouldnt go near this one. There is no privacy in the showers, just a curtain. You also only have a bench to put your things on, which is narrow and your things will fall on the floor. It also smelt like a shower/ bathroom, no clean smell.
The gym is somewhat decent, there is a stationary bike and some weights with a television.
One other thing that really got to us, was that the manager used the property as his own personal back yard for his family and friends.... including the equipment. He drives the loud company side by side cart very fast all day long back and fourth from his RV to the main building.... even on his days off. It is not uncommon for him and his family to have altercations outside yelling profanities to one another.
The only good thing about this RV park was that the wifi was fairly decent.....
Needless to say once our time was up, we left...
Most unfriendly RV park we have ever stayed at! They advertise they are pet friendly. But, they have a fit if your dog wanders on any grassy areas. Our dog stepped on a grassy spot while we were setting up. The manager cam running out of the office yelling "No Dogs on the Grass". And, the sites were extremely small. We could barely get our truck and our 18 foot trailer in the site. Our neighbor, who had a Class A motorhome had to park his tow car on the street in front of the RV park. Will never stay here again.
