Camping & Shooting Spot Outside Reno


New member
I am in charge of planning a trip for my best friend's birthday and he wants to go camping and shooting one day outside of Reno. We are looking for a good BLM spot with privacy, an area to lay down some tents for the night, and be able to blast off our arsenal.

I have found a couple good spots on forums, but unfortunately I am not able to go scout the area before hand, so I was wondering if anyone knows of any specific spots that would work. All the help is much appreciated and the closer to Reno the better!

a lot will depend when you want to go. many fine locations presently under deep snow or a muddy mess.

Sand Mountain. From here you can find plenty of locations to shoot guns without worrying about Washoe Congested Areas.
