Las Vegas RV Parks Campers Love
Las Vegas RV parks offer daily, weekly, and monthly rates for RVers looking to stay a while, and they’re all loaded with amenities like laundry, pools, book exchanges, even saunas. It can be tough to choose which one is right for you. But seasoned RV travelers on The Dyrt have shared insider tips on their favorite places to park their home-on-wheels. Here are some of their top picks for RV parks in Las Vegas.
1. For Walkability to the Strip: Circus Circus RV Park
You can’t get much closer to the Las Vegas strip experience than by staying at the Circus Circus RV Park, located at one of the strip’s iconic casinos. There are 170 big-rig sites at the Circus Circus RV Park, nearly half of which have added amenities like grass, patios, and patio furniture. Free wi-fi is available throughout the park, and if you’re bringing your dog, he’ll stay clean at the free dog wash, and you can tucker them out at the off-leash dog park.
The kids and grandkids will enjoy The Adventuredome at Circus Circus, the world’s largest indoor theme park, and the free nightly circus acts at the arcade. You probably won’t want to spend an extended amount of time at the campground itself, but it’s a great start and end point to any vacation on the strip.
“This is an older facility and sites are about $45 a night but the staff is friendly and in comparison to a hotel that is still not terrible to access parking for a rig and have in city accommodations. It does include hook ups.” — The Dyrt camper Crystal C.Camp here
2. For a Full-Service Experience: Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort
Staying at the Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort feels a lot like being pampered. There’s a cafe onsite for your morning cup of jo’, and a concierge service to help guests book show tickets, tours, and restaurant reservations. Sites vary from “Standard” to “Big Rig.” Standard sites offer desert landscape, with no picnic tables, and are furthest away from the clubhouse, while the Big Rig sites offer decorative fencing, BBQ pits, and grassy areas.
Rates vary at the Oasis from $47/night to $84/night. If you’re looking to stay for a few weeks, months, or the entire winter, they also offer monthly rates from $590-$999. Enjoy horseshoe pits, a family pool with built in waterfalls, an 18-hole golf course, fitness center, and more. Once you’re tired from walking along the strip all day, Oasis is your place to rest and relax.
“Park landscape, restrooms and facilities are immaculate. Security is on 24/7 at the front entrance and all about thru the park. It is a “5” Star Park without a question. Too much to say about here other than give it a try. It is a resort and well worth the peace of mind.” — The Dyrt camper Pete L.Camp here
3. For Simple Affordability: Arizona Charlie’s Casino East RV Park
Located just 7 miles from the Las Vegas strip, recently renovated Arizona Charlie’s offers the Las Vegas RV parks experience, without being in the hustle and bustle of it all. Over 200 sites from 30′-70′ are spread across the desert landscaped park, and guests can enjoy big screen TVs, pool, and a fitness center at the clubhouse. Arizona Charlie’s Hotel and Casino are only minutes away and offer restaurants, gambling, and both a swimming pool and hot tub.
A back-in monthly site reserves for just $680/month + taxes. 24-hour gate security and easy access to local public transportation routes make Arizona Charlie’s both secure, connected, and one of the best Las Vegas RV parks.
“Full hook-up RV park, with no shade structures and no picnic tables. Guests may use hotel amenities including pool. Arizona Charlie’s is a popular local hotel & casino, with easy access to downtown Las Vegas and nearby major thoroughfares.”–The Dyrt camper Collette K.Camp here
4. For On-Site Entertainment: Las Vegas KOA at Sam’s Town
You won’t even have to leave the resort to enjoy a week’s worth of entertainment at Sam’s Town. Stay at a familiar location with Kampgrounds of America while enjoying games at the 133,000 square foot casino, challenging your partner to a round of bowling at one of 56 lanes, or catch a movie at the 18-screen theatre. Catch a show, order a steak, or feast at the buffet.
Once you’ve done all you can do at this RV haven in Vegas, catch a free shuttle ride down the strip and continue to eat your heart out, catch a Cirque du Soleil show, or watch the fountains at the Bellagio. Then come home to well-manicured sites, some with patio furniture, a communal BBQ area, several off-leash dog runs, and mature trees for a respite from the Vegas heat. Sites start at $27.99/night.
“Stayed here overnight when we needed to get the brakes done on the rig. A clean, decent place with clean, decent amenities. Nothing for the nature enthusiast as the camp is on Boulder Highway (a heavily trafficked and noisy highway). A lot of full time residents in this park and some real friendly folks.” – The Dyrt camper Deacon J.Camp here
5. For Long-Term Residence: Desert Sands RV Resort
Dubbed one of the best places to retire by Money Magazine, Henderson, NV remains in the municipal district of Las Vegas and sits only 16 miles from the strip. It’s far enough out to make you feel removed from it all, but close enough to easily see a show, or enjoy one of Vegas’ world-class buffets. With adobe inspired buildings, Desert Sands is a frugal and fun option for any length of stay in the Silver State.
The onsite clubroom offers wifi and a flat screen TV with DirectTV, and the showers include access to a sauna. Quick convenience items are easy to find at the old-fashioned general store, which also includes a cafe and mail service. You’ll feel like you’ve stepped back in time at the Desert Sands Resort. Nightly rates start at $25, with monthly rates starting at a welcoming $385.
“Many older RV’s with long-term stays. However, it is an interesting old place… with Pittman General Store & Café, pool with outside walls, full hook-ups, laundry, mail service, security, and adults only. Easy access to downtown Las Vegas, with nearby shopping malls and casinos.” – The Dyrt camper Collette K.Camp here
6. For Ultimate Convenience + Affordability: Road Runner RV Park
Stay within walking distance of pharmacies, grocery stores, and banks at the Road Runner RV Park, without spending your entire retirement on site fees. Stay for a night, $24, a week $104, or a month $359–making Road Runner one of the most frugal Las Vegas RV parks. Enjoy free coffee, on-site mail services, and private showers, as well as a quieter Vegas experience next to the Boulder Highway.
Spend some alone time in the reading room, or soak up the sun next to the pool and jacuzzi. And when you’re getting antsy, hop in the car and make the 15-minute drive down to the strip. Public transportation is also easily accessible and only a .2 mile walk from the resort entrance. Busses run every 15 minutes, and it takes about 45 minutes to reach the strip.
“Daily, weekly, monthly rates. Allows older RVs. No shade structures or picnic tables. Pool & spa, laundry, restrooms, and mail service. Easy access to downtown Las Vegas and nearby major shopping centers, casinos, and restaurants.”–The Dyrt camper Collette K.Camp here
7. For Green Park Access: Duck Creek RV Park & Resort
What makes Duck Creek unique is it’s immediate access to Silver Bowl Park, a 96-acre grassy park perfect for kicking around a soccer ball, or rolling out the picnic blanket. It’s also close to the Las Vegas strip, McCarran International Airport, and multiple grocery stores, banks, and pharmacies. Let the dog burn off some energy at one of two off-leash areas on site, or throw the tennis ball at Silver Bowl.
If you’re out of change, there’s a machine onsite for laundry days, and a free book and DVD rental center to kill time while you switch between light and dark loads. Site prices are reasonably low, with standard sites nightly $36.16, weekly $192.10, and monthly $485.90, and premium sites $62.15 nightly, $271.20 weekly, and $666.70 monthly.
“Very clean & popular with asphalt roadways, newer RVs, long-term & short-term stays, store, restrooms with showers, pool & spa, and dog park. Easy access to downtown Las Vegas and nearby major shopping and casinos.” – The Dyrt camper Collette K.Camp here
8. For Peace and Quiet: Lake Mead RV Village
If you’re looking for a more removed and remote experience, Lake Mead RV Village offers solitude and respite from the hustle and busyness of most Las Vegas RV parks. Located near the Hoover Dam, this RV park allows guests to enjoy the beauty of nature and the luxuries of the city. Free wi-fi covers the entire RV village and both gasoline and propane are available onsite for purchase. There’s also a general store for when you run out of toothpaste and don’t want to make a trip into town.
The Las Vegas strip is a short 40 minute drive from the RV village so you can catch shows, or try your luck at the casinos. If you own a boat, the RV Village offers a ramp to launch, and if you choose to fish, make sure you have a valid license available from one of the marina’s on Lake Mead. Their rates will make it easy to stay and have a luxurious winter: $30/night, $165/week, and $495/month.
“This RV park had full hookups which is always a plus when you are traveling. We utilized the laundry facility here and caught up on some computer work since they had wi-fi. It was very hot so we took the RV to the shores of Lake Mead and parked for a rock skipping contest and to cool off. The water was very warm which wasn’t at all what I expected.” – The Dyrt camper Christy C.Camp here
9. For Recent Renovations: Thousand Trails RV Park
Thousand Trails has all the amenities you’re after, plus easy access to the strip. Take your dog to the dog park by the welcome center, soothe your muscles in the jacuzzi, or shower at one of three facilities onsite. Challenge your camp neighbors to a game of horseshoes, then gather around the BBQ for burgers or brats. Walk less than a mile to the Parkdale Recreation and Senior Center or the Boulder Station Hotel and Casino.
Sites were recently renovated at Thousand Trails to improve gravel around the sites and three newly renovated cabins, perfect for when friends or family come to visit. Thousand Trails also puts on activities throughout the week like karaoke, movie nights, and game nights, as well as a Sunday worship service. Members camp free, and non-members can reserve a site starting at $44/night.
“With a little over an hour’s drive north you can visit Valley of Fire State Park for an amazing day of hiking and exploring. You can even catch a glimpse of petroglyphs scribbled on the vibrant red faces of massive boulders and cliffs.” – The Dyrt camper Joshua R.Camp here
