I have to echo the comments of AV-Ed (Apt 2017). This is an oasis in the midst of nothing. If you've read the reviews of parks in Beatty or Pahrump, you might be tempted to take a chance on this one. Good decision. Lots of room, trees at each site, no reservations needed. There were 20-30 spaces occupied out of the 90+ available. Owner says the busy months are April & November. NOTE: cash only. Potential downside; they sell fireworks across the street and your pets may object. We camped at Fort Amargosa RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Middle Of Nowhere Nice I stayed for one night while traveling from northern Nevada to So Cal. After not liking what I saw in Beatty (cramped locations) but was too tired to make Pahrump, this RV Park turned out quite nice. It was quiet, the sites are level, the hook ups are easy & the man running the park is very helpful. All the sites appear to be pull thru. I had plenty of room for my 25' trailer & Ram 3500 truck. The sites are gravel with small trees and are adequately spacious. There's showers & a laundry but I didn't use them or visit them. In front there's a gas station & store. There's a very large space between the park & the road to walk pets. Traffic noise is not too noticeable either. Sci-fi fans will beam across the street to the "Area 51 Space Alien Travel Plaza" fuel & restaurant stop. Good luck trying not to buy any alien suvioneers! Like the tequila or vodka in alien head shape bottles. In back is the maybe world famous Bunny Ranch but I don't know what kinda "bunnies" are there. (Yes Dear- Honest!). I enjoyed my stay at the RV Park more than I thought & would stay again. We camped at Fort Amargosa RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Area 51 Travel Plaza & brothel across the street. Good (but small) restaurant in there too. Good diesel fuel prices, I didn't notice gas prices.

A great overnight place. Them manager is always friendly and helpful. Gravel sites are clean and level. Bathrooms are clean. Wi-fi works pretty good for being in the back-of-beyond for technology. Water and power are very good. There is a new Chevron service station right in front of the park, and the old Fort Amargosa store has re-opened. Of course, the Area 51 Travel Center (with cafe and brothel museum) is open right across the highway. We love stopping at this RV park on trips through the area.

We stayed here passing through to Vegas back in August 2011 and there were barely any trees, now they have grown pretty nicely.

The manager lived in the back of the RV park in a 5er, the new one lives in front in a Class C.

We arrived around 8pm and there is minimal lighting in the park so he walks around with you with a flashlight and lets you pick your space.

All are packed gravel and fairly level with water and electric. Dump is available in back. Was pretty empty so we had choice space basically. All spaces are pull through and can accommodate our 40' Motorhome and attached Ford Taurus toad. Quiet.....shop has minimal goods. Brothel across the street that seems respectful as respectful a Brothel can be! No WiFi, no internet but a nice place to stay over for a day or two. We now head to North toward Reno. Would stay here again and probably will on my way back to vegas in 2 weeks. We camped at Fort Amargosa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Not much around that we saw. We had a destination on a time frame for Oregon so not much time to look around.

I will say that the RV grounds are very hard to see. They are behind a convenience store...there are two across the street from each other. The RV park is on the south bound side, the north bound side is the brothel.

Park is pretty basic. All hook ups that were needed. Good place to stop for a night or two. We usually spend two nights at parks, just to rest up. Manager was very helpful and full of information. We camped at Fort Amargosa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Alien gift shop across the road was interesting. Very busy place, since it's pretty much in the middle of nowhere. We did discover Ash Meadows, about 20 miles to the south on Hwy 373. There is Devils Hole with quite an interesting story.

This is a little oasis, the last opportunity to end your travels on the way to or through Las Vegas. Not much here, except it is a safe place with some shade, many open sites, and GREAT electricity. I plugged in my 50 amp cord and with both A/Cs running, the voltage was still in the 120s. Perfect. I just wanted to stop and not face the LV traffic until morning and this is perfect. Closer than the Beatty parks. We don't use showers outside of the RV and it is 107, so I did not investigate the amenities. Find a site, then go pay in the dropbox. Easy. We camped at Fort Amargosa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Fuel across the street is usually a good price. Area 51 Travel Center, and it has a restaurant and even a brothel!

Stayed here last year when passing thru and now again. Nothing has changed. Great place to spend the night and you can't beat the price.

Fuel across the hwy 95 with an Area 51 store and a brothel next door.

Got some more tshirts again this year. Electric and water are fine. The free WiFi didn't work for us and had to use our strong Verizon MiFi.

Will stay here again when passing thru. We camped at Fort Amargosa RV Park in a Motorhome.

A basic overnight stop. Kind of a funky park but what do you want for the price. Good internet and level sites. Easy check in. Although it is close to the highway, the noise isn't bad. I would stay here again if in the area. We camped at Fort Amargosa RV Park in a Motorhome.

First time we've camped here. The sites are level and gravel. All pull-through and long. Medium width. The place was pretty empty when we pulled in, and we could have our choice of spots. Some shade. Clean as a whistle. Garbage cans near every site. Moderate lighting. Great internet. Some highway noise. Gas and store across the street. 50 amp. No complaints. I'd stay here again.

Nice park to use as a base for Death Valley. Can't beat the price and the hookups are well placed except for the sewer. It is towards the front. Store across the street that has a lot of Area 51 stuff. Also a brothel. Will stay here again when passing through. We camped at Fort Amargosa RV Park in a Motorhome.

I agree with most of the comments of recent reviewers (except we didn't find the highway noise bothersome), but I told the nice manager I would submit a review.....Oh well...... We camped at Fort Amargosa RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a nice place for a quick overnight stop. There are long pull-through sites and you don't have to unhook your tow. The place was only occupied by us and one other. It's gravel and level, easy hookups, some trees, large plants on the sides. Laundry was older but nice, plenty of washers, bath was old but clean, shower stalls were small. Manager nice guy only been there 2 months. All the stores in front are closed. Gas across the highway, easy access and good prices. There is also a store. You can stop here and save a few $ instead of doing Beatty. Free good Wi-Fi, no TV. We camped at Fort Amargosa RV Park in a Motorhome.

Just a great place for an overnight stay. All pull thrus and great on-site manager. All the amenities of full hook ups. It is gravel but this is in the middle of nowhere and for the price is a great deal. Good gas prices across the street also. We camped at Fort Amargosa RV Park in a Motorhome.

If you are in the area and need a place to spend a night, this is it. A very plain vanilla park, although an effort was made by planting and maintaining a tree and some shrubs between sites. The utilities including WiFi worked well. The manager is a very friendly individual. The park was almost empty at the end of July, so it is difficult to assess site size. There is some highway noise at all hours, and lights at night from billboards. The general store and gas station that fronted the park is now closed. The few other residents appeared to be all long-term. For what it is, this is a perfectly acceptable park. The price shown includes taxes. We would stay here for one night, again.
