Up and down Nevada

If you want to avoid the Gardnerville and Carson City traffic on US 395 you can take a bit of detour from Bridgeport to Yerrington to Fernley. There are a couple of nice NDOT roadside parks along the way.
Yerrington Roadside Stop
On Rt 339 just outside Yerrington across the road from a commercial scales and next to a road maintenance yard is this one. It has a dump station, too.
Wilson Canyon
Another is a bit farther south on Rt 339 on the West Walker River just south of Wilson Canyon. This is one of the few places you can gain access to BLM lands on the river. It is a prime ATV and ORV site and now subject to restoration and recovery and proper use efforts. See Save Wilson Canyon or Wilson Canyon (com) or Nevada State Historic Preservation

Note that NDOT roadside parks allow for an 18 hour stop. No fees.
