I drove by there several years ago, but did not stop. There's nothing directly on the highway.
On that trip, we camped in Escalante (state park), drove past Bryce, on to Cedar Breaks and Brian Head, and to Cedar City, and then to Caliente NV, where we staying in a motel near the historic RR terminal. The next day drove to Tonopah were we got gas, and on to Big Pine (where we camped).
It is out in the middle of nowhere, Not much there other than the Little A'le'Inn Just down the road is the famous Steve Medlin Mailbox, and the entrance to Area 51/Groom Lake. I just checked it out for the heck of it, I didn't see anything unusual.
I love camping in Nevada, and I must say Rachel would be near the bottom of my list of places to go. There are SP's near Pioche and Caliente and camping at the NWR south of Alamo that would all be far preferable.
Be careful.......if you see something you shouldn't, you may never get to leave
hahaha...now that`s cute!!!
Rachel is a nowhere place, for sure...but...the ladies in the cafe will tell you stories of stuff going on. There really is nothing there but a fuel pump and a cafe and few trailers that folks live in. If you are okay with boondocking, there are dirt roads everywhere. Just find a spot and you are home, for the night. If you have a good star night, it`ll be fabulous!
I have a Blog..about stuff, some of which is RV'ing.
