Where are we going today?

Out in the blasted, treeless region that brought you Craters of the Moon National Monument lies Shoshone Ice Caves. Visitors are greeted by a looming dinosaur statue, ridden by a hairy caveman. A three-story high Native American, Chief Wasakie, watches your car while you take the tour.

These caves are one of the natural wonders of the world. Trained guides explain the geologic, volcanic, and historical background in these large lava ice caves. A museum contains Indian artifacts, gems, and minerals of local and world interest. The only town along this stretch of road, Shoshone is a ranching and railroad center that marks the junction of Hwy-75 with US-93. Some of its buildings have been constructed from local volcanic rock, and though it’s a fairly timeworn place, Shoshone looks great at sunset, when its steel water tower glows.

    Rating was downgraded for lack of customer service at front desk, check in time took me over 45 min., wait to pay for ice/soda, other staff is sitting around talking and not helping. No one checks id if you have a package or letter sent here so anyone can just walk in and walk out with your stuff.

    Great stay. The Nevada desert is beautiful and at Wine Ridge you can see all around you. Cottage was like a two bedroom suite with a fully equipped kitchen. Will definitely stay again. Easy to do laundry, pools are lovely. I even washed my car while staying there. Very quiet and well maintained.

    10 April 2013 - Charleston Peak was always a nice RV park, but the new Wine Ridge is just WOW! The park is well-groomed with lots of new greenery. New amenities and/or upgrades include renovated office, clubhouse, and community kitchen, new cottages, full hook-ups with 50amp service throughout the park, free wi-fi, new pools, new pickle ball and badminton courts, new physical fitness center, new professional pool tables, new laundry facility, new showers. The "old" pools and showers are clean and well maintained. The office staff continue to...Read More

    Everything was perfect, all facilities were immaculate and the staff was friendly and courteous. Wi-Fi worked perfect too. Highly recommend to anyone looking for a respite from the road or long term stay.

10 April 2013 - Charleston Peak was always a nice RV park, but the new Wine Ridge is just WOW! The park is well-groomed with lots of new greenery. New amenities and/or upgrades include renovated office, clubhouse, and community kitchen, new cottages, full hook-ups with 50amp service throughout the park, free wi-fi, new pools, new pickle ball and badminton courts, new physical fitness center, new professional pool tables, new laundry facility, new showers. The "old" pools and showers are clean and well maintained. The office staff continue to be among the most professional, helpful, and friendly folks we've met in our travels around the country. Currently Wine Ridge accepts Good Sam, Passport America, and RPI discounts. The only cautionary item is the gated entrance. Right now the new fence isn't yet completed (only the posts are in), but when that does come about, be very careful not to knock your passenger side mirror askew or even scrape the side of your rig. It's a tight squeeze between the gate stanchion and the new fence. We've been coming to this park for years and we've got to give high marks to the folks who have turned the nice Charleston Peak RV Resort into the really great Wine Ridge RV Resort.
