Lovelock, Nevada - Rye Patch State Park campground is off I-80 exit 129 and 20 miles NE of the town of Lovelock and a mere 10 minute ride from the highway. The Park is surrounded by mountains, water, large golden fields and more beautiful scenery. Rye Patch State Park is well worth the trip and at $14 per night the camping fee is a real bargain. There are two major areas for RV camping. The one by the dam accommodates larger RVs and by the lake is for smaller RVs. Keep in mind that this is a very remote part of town so be sure to stock up with plenty food & beverages before hand and if you have a boat bring it along as well. "Oh give me a home where the buffalo roam and the deer and the antelope play" - and boy they were playing! The sunsets are quite beautiful (even though it was pretty dark out when I took this picture, you get the idea) and while I was out taking pictures I saw a lot

of pronghorn antelope, huge jackrabbits and heard the howling coyotes off in the distance. An OTG Cooking Show Tip: Plenty of hiking trails and lots of stairs make for an intense morning workout. Briskly walk them or if you are running them try doubling up to make it extra hard. The summers are hot, so make sure you wear a hat, sunscreen, sunglasses and bring some water. We met up with a nice couple from Germany, Karl and Monika that have been traveling the USA for the last four months. Monika showed us her wares that she makes by hand from mostly recycled materials that she has gathered on her travels. Very nice couple and we loved her cute little critters.
