Since we live in Nevada, we've visited Lake Mead on numerous occasions. Even though Lake Mead is very, very dry, there's still a beautiful view of the lake...Take pictures! RV park, is about $180 a week. YIKES!
The RV parking spaces are kind of close together with hook-ups. If you want to have a get together or BBQ, there's a picnic area by the ranger station with ample shaded spots with grills!! Since the ranger station is within walking distance, on occasion, you may have a park ranger come by your area and chat with you. There's a small hiking trail as well in the area. WATCH FOR SIGNAGE! You also can take a walk/drive/ride your bike to the lake or take a swim. There are bathrooms down by the lake so you can change into your swimming attire. Be sure to shower after your swim! We camped at the Lake Mead NRA - Las Vegas Bay Campground. - Oie de Etudiant

$5 per night (using the Golden Age Passport) was for a level asphalt pad that was surrounded by a generous area of sand/gravel and beautiful desert vegetation including eucalyptus trees. Each primitive site has a concrete picnic table and fire ring. This campground is located on the outskirts of Las Vegas where there is every amenity. Our site had a 360? view of the surrounding valleys and mountains. Lake Mead National Recreation Area offers plenty of outdoor activities including hiking and biking trails, rock climbing, boating, fishing, hunting, and picnicking. There were lots of Gambel?s Quail, Ruby-throated hummingbirds, and coyotes in the area. AT&T and Verizon service were three ? four bars of LTE. There were over 40 OTA TV stations and we received many radio stations including HD stations. - DD Rolling Ranch

We camped here in September, 2014, after all the schools had opened. There were maybe 10 campers in the park. It was so hot! Over 100 degrees. We paid for two days but after the first night we left in search of A/C Now, this wasn't the park's problem. In cooler weather this park would be nice. Spaces, like in all NPS parks were close together. I suspect this place would be really crowded in the full season. Lake Mead was really low - Jim Lee

This park was very run down. The people were friendly enough. The majority of spaces are occupied by permanent residents. The surrounding area is more commercial and not conducive for walks and other outdoor activities. - LouDaisy5

The majority of RV’s in this park are long term. The people were friendly and very quiet as far as we could see. Park is 1.5 miles away from major shopping so it was very convenient. Good water pressure, electrical stayed up around 127 and no problems with the sewer. Park looks pretty nice from the entrance but it has seen better days once you drive around to look for a site. Cement pads were nice but had to park on part of the pad to get our main slide out. There is a security shack just past the office and there was usually someone there. No problems getting a satellite signal and Verizon Aircard worked well. We would stay here again to load up supplies from Costco and Trader Joe’s. NOT a place we would want to hang out in! - jannie5

This location is great for getting right off I-95 or I-515, but the name says it all. Desert Sands is sandy, and you can't get much more desert than that! So there is not much to upkeep. The trash cans seem to fill up faster than they are emptied. There are no shade trees. This seems to be more oriented for much older RVs, but they still have a heart. This is right next to Boulder Hwy. but is quiet at night. Can walk to Skyline casino. And Sam Boyd Stadium is very close for the events. Mall, casinos, groceries up Sunset Rd. the other direction. - steve&kristi

Sites are small....standard sites are 35' deep, which includes the bushes behind your unit. Everybody parks in the street, which makes the street tight. The premium sites are either deeper, or are double sites. The double sites are pull-thrus. All roads are paved, and most sites are concrete. There are 2 laundries, one by the office and one in the middle of the park. The only area for pets is gravel and not enclosed. - ta96silver

Very tight sites, but a good value with Passport America. Paved sites close together with some trees. Right next door to large park, great for the dog! - ldukeb

Friendly staff, good location for what we needed. But- sites were VERY narrow! Boulder highway has lots of emergency vehicle traffic so not very quiet. Really puzzling was the fact that they said that their policy was to require rigs to be less than ten years old, but many of their full time sites were occupied by rigs much older than that. Will probably not stay here again. - joans8849

This suited our needs for one night, but would not stay here long term. Wifi is only included at the pool/clubhouse. You must pay to use it at your site. The sites are very close together. Seemed like many long term residents were there. The pool was nice as well as the enclosed dog park. Basically this KOA was a parking lot next to a casino. - jennifernelson49

Staff was extremely helpful and courteous. We stayed 5 nights. Shuttle to downtown and the strip is available, however we had a rental car to do our exploring on our own terms.
Paved interior roads, gravel sites. Utility connections are shared so spacing can be rather tight between neighbors. The pull through sites seem to be tighter than the back in or pull in spaces. We expected the spaces to be tight in an area like this.
All utilities worked well except for the cable tv. Picture was snowy and difficult to view. Mentioned it to staff who sent out a service person, but was not able to correct the problem.
Temps were 100+ during our stay. Even the short walk from the campground to the casino was exhausting for us old people. Would be nice if they could arrange a golf cart shuttle to the casino. Our site, a pull in was large enough for our unit and the rental car. Free wifi is available at the pool area and at the office. A more reliable and faster wifi is available for purchase. - Kazoo Tom

We found the park very convenient for accessing the Strip thanks to the free shuttle from Sam's Town, though it doesn't run after 9:30 p.m. The park facilities were adequate. We used our Verizon hotspot since the park's wifi was not useful at our site. The bathrooms were small and could use updating, but they were clean. We got the free "b-connect" cards at the casino to access the inexpensive buffet. The $6 breakfast buffet was a great deal. - Desert Beacon

We have just spent 5 nights here. The amenities are good and clean however there is no free WiFi to speak of and the pay for use service they offer for $25.00 for a week is poor, with continual dropouts. The park itself is all sealed bitumen and gravel with a few trees that do nothing for shade thus with the reflected heat it is hot. The pool is kept clean and the heated hot tub is also clean but in the hot sun is no fun. The big issue with this park is the constant sirens from police and ambulances. We have had two nights of little sleep, one where there were numerous police cars with sirens and light going plus the helicopter overhead at low level obviously looking for someone and the other night two SWAT teams with police heavily armed. Not sure if we felt safe with their presence or not.
The park is about 20-30 minute drive to downtown Las Vegas.
Given that I have yet to find a better park for visiting Las Vegas I would just give it an above OK score. - TommBoyd

Gravel sites, paved roads, basically a casino parking lot. Food and casino within walking distance. Shuttle to downtown. - mjtesky

As of 10/1 this park is now part of KOA. Have stayed at this park a number of times for 1 or 2 nights on our travels north/south through Vegas. Convenience to freeway and casino/restaurants is a plus for us. OK for short stay, Negatives - narrow spaces, poor sewer connections, door to door arrangement in the pull-throughs, little shade, quite noisy (6 AM garbage truck not good). But our recent experience illustrates my general dislike for KOAs. Check in was a joke. Despite assurances that the new owners would honor my free comp nights from Sams Town I had to argue with clerk until a supervisor interceded. Later I noticed clerk had screwed up my paperwork showing we only had a 1 night booking vs 2 nights. Went back to office - was completely ignored by the same clerk and had to resolve with a different clerk. Not a good start for KOA. Based on my past experiences with KOA (not a fan) I suspect the rates on this park will never again be as low as Sams Town offered. KOAs way overpriced in my opinion. - dennis44

This is a very nice, clean park with paved and level sites. The people are very friendly and helpful. Employees patrol the park constantly. I have never used showers in an RV park before but I did here since our water in the RV was overly hot due to the 115+ degree temperatures. The restrooms and showers are huge and clean. The roads are a bit narrow with tight turns here and there, but it's all doable. - Paul Goodspeed

This a Vegas resort. Opulent pool area and nice grounds. Our site was level and very nice. There is a security officer at the gate 24/7. Would stay here again. - SD75mac

Easy overnight stay. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Our site just barely fit us and the turn in and out was a bit tricky. Pool was wonderful. Dog parks are not that great. The park says no "depositing" anywhere except the dog park. Not sure how to get them to the park daily but.... - Lastrick

We stayed in the RV park after visiting Death Valley NP and on the way to Quartzsite AR for the rest of the winter. The park is well managed and very clean. It is noisy at night due to the proximity to the street but the close proximity to shopping and other services is a big advantage. Wifi services are reachable only to those sites close to the office. We recommend this place to any RVers visiting Las Vegas. Please bring cash as payment as they do not accept credit cards. - hotpepper

Stay was terrible. Park is right on busy highway with drug dealers and hookers. While sitting by rv awnings my husband was asked if he needed A hooker. Drug dealers were doing buisness on wall surrounding park and items in front of RV were stolen. Jacuzzi was old and jets barely worked. When we asked about fixing it they stated it was 30 yrs old and there was nothing to do. Water faucet spigot leaked and when we came back to rv there was a sign on door stating they turned off our drinking water - jrddf

The park is right off Boulder Highway and they have a special for $16 a night for the first 3 nights, then it goes up to $20. Most of sites are pull-through and blacktop, with a little landscaping in between. About 75% of the occupants are permanent, run down trailers. Staff in office is very nice. Wi-Fi is available in the office only. You are also required to give a $10 deposit on a key which gives access to the bathrooms, laundry ($1 wash and dry) and the pool. A major safety concern is the key is needed to open the pool area and to get out of the pool area. My husband and I went in together, but he left when the sun got too hot, and I was actually locked in the pool area until I found someone walking past with a key to let me out! For the price, we would stay here again. - Liv4sun

stayed for a week, first time for this park. Agree with previous comments, few shade trees, concrete pads, grass on ends of rows. Dog area (only one) is small and all dirt with no shade. Many "long term" guests here that have "stuff" outside of the rv in violation of the rules, but didn't see anything done. Bath houses are rooms with toilet, sink and shower. For the most part clean, except first thing in the morning, found two toilets in one house this morning that were over=flowing with feces. The wifi is adequate for nearly everything, I don't stream so don't know about that. We usually stay at Sam's Town (now KOA), but thought we would try here for this trip.... can't say this is bad, just like the LARGE and grass dog areas at the KOA better. - Sergent Major

With the exception of keeping undesirables out of the bathroom area this park is excellent. Not sure why they have such a problem as they change "keys" regularly. They should also be checking at day break as the problems seem to come during the nite...even though the bathrooms are locked at 10:00. That in itself is a drawback! The spaces are concrete as are the streets. There is pebble rock between sites with shrubs. Very limited shade here but the grounds are clean. I'm going to say the sites are close while not so close as to have problems with slides. More than enough room on both sides. Impressive aray of coaches and large trailers/5ths staying here. Over all Arizona Charlie's was better than expected and we would stay here next time we are thru Vegas for sure. - Sweatlife

This is a nice city park located about 5 miles from the strip and is on Boulder Highway in Las Vegas, not Boulder City. The park has several pull-through sites with excellent hook-ups. WiFi and cable included in the price as is 50 amp service.
Located close to the strip on a Casino property is very nice. All sites are paved and the access roads are wide. No picnic tables available. - nmunozjr

Like many parks in the Thousand Trails network, this one is old and in need of maintenance. As other reviewers mentioned, there was a storm in February and they STILL haven't fixed the WiFi or reopened the pool. Since the park doesn't have much in the way of amenities, that's really inexcusable. And there was no warning when we made the reservation about these things not being available. We truly wonder whether continuing to pay for our membership in Thousand Trails makes sense since they don't seem to be putting any money into their parks.
The sites are gravel and so narrow that we had to park our truck elsewhere. It might have fit our space if our neighbors hadn't parked their truck on their space - which of course they are entitled to do. The woman who checked us in directed us to an end space that she said had more shade than some other spaces but honestly I didn't see a tree anywhere nearby. The roads are narrow and the turns tight. Like many of the older parks, there are no pull-through sites.
There's no cable TV but we were able to pick up quite a few broadcast channels. Verizon Internet worked well. The dog area was reasonable. - Pull Toy

So, on one hand, I really appreciate this park. We ended up in Vegas (baby!) with no place to stay after the park we had made a reservation at flaked out on us. No where had space for us, but I called TT Las Vegas and they did have space. So I jumped online, signed up for Thousand Trails (something we'd already been talking about doing for months), and headed for the park. They really bailed us out.
On the other hand, I want to be honest about this campground. It's just ok. The sites are very tight, but that's not unusual in a metro area. The sites are all gravel. The pool building had been damaged months ago when a tree fell on it, and had not been repaired. Amenities were quite limited with the pool closed.
Having said all of that. We'd stay again. It was pleasant, felt safe, was close to all of the Vegas attractions, and like I said, they really bailed us out, so I'm grateful for that. - JPen365
May 2016 - $50.00
The words to sum up this park is overpriced and tight. There was a storm in February and as a result there is no WiFi or cable and the pool is closed. The sites are some of the smallest you will encounter for width. The hook ups are at the back of the gravel sites. The park is close to all amenities. - Irish2

We stayed 2 weeks daily rate based on weekly divided by 7. Easy in an out of park and sites. Good size pull thrus. Dog runs small but across the street from park is a vacant lot with trails to walk your dog. Park provides a key to the gate to access the area. - mserafin

We've used this place before for an overnight stay. The price has gone up since 2 years ago. Decent pull-thru space, close sites (side by side). There seems to be more full/part timers than last time. There are 2 dog areas, just ok, but fenced. It seems even with bags and shovel provided people do not clean up after their pets-disappointing! No signage on main highway.
Nice friendly staff, wifi worked fine, didn't use TV. - loves to camp w/dogs
