24 Parks near Nellis AFB, Nevada
May 2016 - $22.00
We stayed at Desert Eagle for a week. We had a spacious, landscaped campsite with designated parking spaces for both a vehicle and motorcycle trailer. Ours was a back in site, but we noticed several nice pull through sites, too. Back in was easy onto a concrete pad with full hookups.
We arrived prior to office closing, but it's important to note that if you arrive after 7:00pm, there isn't an option to go to the campground. Posted instructions are to park in designated parking areas in front of the office until office opening hours the following morning.
Office staff are efficient and knowledgeable. Access is easy and it's clear that Nellis and the USAF have invested in making Desert Eagle a destination campground. We would definitely stay here again. - Donna and Steve

Like another reviewer, I was disappointed with how the waiting list for full hookup sites was never clearly described. We were never advised that the waiting list started on the arrival date instead of the reservation date, and it was never clear how the waiting list worked. We spent ten days in the partial hookup loop, with shared electric (1 30A;, 1 50A) and water. The sites (circles), like the full-hookup sites, are built on the former mobile home area and have a strange, but usable configuration. As the park becomes more popular, it would be helpful to have a transparent system for the full hookup sites to avoid misunderstandings. The park staff was professional and helpful, and the facilities are still some of the best in the system. WiFi worked well for us, and being on the edge of an urban area, Verizon cell/data and OTA TV was excellent. A great secure location with fairly easy access to shopping and dining, it remains one of our favorite parks. - Meanderman

A prime location, only twenty minutes to the strip, $22 a night for full hook up. We made a reservation a knew only a water and electric site was available and that we would be put on the wait list for a full hook up. Found out we wouldn't be put on the wait list until after check in despite what we were told when making the reservation.
The water and electric sites are around a circle but you are perpendicular to the circle and either have your door to the road or have to run your power and water under the RV when connecting, the worst circular setup I have seen. Check in was a long process (20 minutes) because the woman at the counter was somewhat new and not sure how to input the stay. We also were told we had to have exact change when paying cash because they couldn't make change after 4:00 pm (it was 4:05). We were put on the full hook up waiting list and told only a couple people were ahead of us. The next day when I went to the office I was told we were actually fifth on the list, the next day I was told I was eighth, and I talked to the same person two days in a row. No one at the front desk can apparently read the waiting list, so ask for the gentleman who retired RMC who makes the reservations.
After five days we were called about moving to a full hook up, which we did right away. What a night and day difference. Huge sites, easy to back into with a parking space for your vehicle. Water and electric were good, WiFi was ok, but we still needed to use our Hotspot at times. There is considerable jet noise, Reveille goes down at 5:30 and if you are in circle three you will hear the kids on the playground of the child development center by 7:30.
If you can get into a full hook up site, it is definitely worth the $22 a night. The laundry rooms, two, are $.75 a load but could have more washers and dryers. Showers work, but need some upkeep. This is a great place to enjoy Las Vegas from. We plan on returning in the fall. - pfogleboch

It is a typical desert park. Sites are pretty big and will handle any size rig. Good for overnight. If jets are flying from Nellis AFB can be kind of noisy. - The traveler

The folks working the place are very nice and helpful. They provide an electronic key to open the security gate. It's a typical desert area park although they do have a smallish grass area for pets. That is a good feature. We would stay here again. - marvls

We stayed here for a week. The park is basic but very clean, staff very friendly and courteous. It is not in a great part of town, but it's gated. Nice pool, a few tiny fenced in dog parks. Nice warm water dog wash. - Newadventurers

Downtown under the freeway. The noise did not bother me (really didn't hear it) nor the walk to check in. You are downtown, close to the strip and of course Fremont Street, and it was only $17 a night with electricity. It was a parking lot, but was fine for us. I would stay here again for a weekend, especially for the value. - steammaker

Let's face it, Las Vegas isn't the best destination for RVer's. The congestion and traffic make it difficult to get around unless you stay well away from the action. On first impression, this campground was just a paved parking lot with hook-ups, well-used and dingy. Right downtown just under the I-515 Interstate. Somewhat noisy with emergency vehicles based nearby. But for the price and convenience, quite a good deal. Making reservations is dicey at best, we were promised a pull-thru 60 feet long by the phone staff, got a back-in 25 ft. Be prepared to fight for a good space as the phone reservation service staff knows little about the different types of RV's, and has trouble understanding our specific needs. Dealing with the front desk of the hotel will get you a better slot. Dog run just dirt, but usable unless your pooch requires foliage of any kind. Will stay here again just for the location. - JAYFLIGHTRV

We stayed here with our motor home and race trailer after a big event out at Las Vegas Motor Speedway. The spot is tight but everything fit. The price is excellent and downtown is 2 blocks away. It's close to the freeway and if you're a light sleeper it might bother you but I slept like a log every night. I have not one complaint other than the casinos stealing my spending money. Would totally stay here again. - Soda Campers

High rating is for price and convenient walking access to downtown Las Vegas. Dogs are allowed with immediate access to city sidewalks for walking. The restrooms, showers, and laundry facilities are clean, well maintained, and only available 9 a.m. - 7 p.m. Staff is very friendly, accommodating, and helpful. One area is partially walled, but overall think of it as a parking lot with full hook-ups dotted with a few palm trees. There is lively pedestrian traffic on the sidewalks (and infrequently traversing the campground), traffic noise, sirens, etc. 24-hours a day. I enjoy city-life and will definitely stay here again. - wJaw

Right on Fremont Street 5 blocks south of casino area. This is a converted parking lot. Not a place for children. Restrooms and showers are clean, but only open from 8AM-6PM. This is a good place to sleep after spending the day (or night) doing what people come to Las Vegas to do. For the price it is a decent value. - thebarricademan

When we first came to this RV Park, I thought it was very creepy. But, after staying at this park a few times, it grows on you. They do have long-term residents that stay at the park. The management staff is always nice whenever we come in contact with her. Also, their WiFi is unbelievably fast!!! Waaay better than the internet I used to have in my home. So, that's a plus there. This RV Park is not for everyone so don't expect expect the "red carpet treatment". - Oie de Etudiant

This was absolutely the worst place I have ever stayed. I felt like I needed to lock the doors and carry a gun at all times. 80% permanent 1960's era trailers with home made add ons and porches. Dogs barking, bad area of town, lots of sirens. Not close to any casinos. Much safer options in other parts of the city. Had to move 3 times when I had 4 day confirmed reservation. If I was offered a free week's stay I would not only turn it down, I would not want to lose a friend by giving it to someone else. Oh and about the showers and restrooms. They require a key that they issue you due to the part of town they are in. Enough said. - DavidWM

I have been an RV camper for over twenty years and I have been to a lot of RV parks all over the US and Canada. I have to say this is the worst place I have ever stayed. It smells like raw sewage is leaking into the air, and the water ruined my plumbing with the smell of sewage. There was an intoxicated woman in a golf cart cursing some of the nastiest language I have ever heard at 1am; this went on for a couple of hours. My children heard the woman and were unable to sleep. The place was a dump; the bathrooms smelled as the rest of the park like sewage. There is no shade and it was hot; the WiFi was very shaky and slow. I had some time leveling my RV as the sites are very uneven; broken glass was present and rusty rebar spikes were in the ground and it was filthy. Management was very rude and biligerent. I asked for a key to use the bathrooms and was charged a deposit and given a lecture on the importance of returning the key as though it was the only key they had. We had intended on staying for a week and left after only one evening. Why Good Sam would be a part of such a horrible place is unbelievable. - john seabreeze

If you are looking for a great rate in Las Vegas, this is the park. It is primarily a trailer park with an RV park in the front nearest Boulder Highway. The permanents range from extended stay people there for work who are in nice, newer, well kept trailers to the very opposite end of the spectrum. Some sites and trailers appeared to be in total disrepair and very unsightly. When we arrived the office person told us they inspected every rig older than 2002. I dare say some of the rigs in this park were 30 years or older and extremely junky. We kept all bay doors locked and left nothing outside. Check in was thorough as the manager went to make sure we would fit in the assigned space. He then led us in personally. The park allowed us to have American Mobile Lube service our coach while parked. A bargain at the price, but will probably not return here again. We really did not feel safe. - Eureka12

Rate reflects monthly. 30/50 amp, no wifi. Men's room was very old but clean, two out of four showers were boarded up, rec room empty except for some books & seating. Pool closes in winter, close to I-515. - nana&papashepp

Weekly rate was $79 + tax and electric. Daily was 18.00 plus tax. Laundry was CHEAP and clean. We felt safe. It was not classy or exciting but was convenient for what we wanted to do. - BorntoCruise

We are Thousand Trails members and have been happy with them so far. We knew this one had damage from a February storm and that the pool was closed, but we needed to stay here for truck repairs (that were right down the road). Although we agree with the other reviewers that this campground is in need of some work and yes, it was a major bummer being there in July (during a heat wave) without a pool, and yes, the sites are narrow and bathrooms are very dated...however, the staff here more than makes up for what the location is lacking. The staff goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable and welcome. They are kind, accommodating, funny and very helpful. We had fridge problems and were living out of a cooler and they would deliver bags of ice to our RV on a regular basis and allowed us to have parts shipped to the park for our fridge. Even the neighbors and permanent residents were friendly and gracious (one even offered for us to borrow their extra car while our truck was in the shop)! As an update, they just got all the permits and started work on fixing the pool and rec room (which we were told would be done by Sept. or Oct). We did feel safe here and it was convenient to shopping/Walmart and had easy access to freeways. - Totally-Trailer

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

Late night pull in. Security came and gave us a site, registered in the morning clean, somewhat easy close sites. A lot of sirens during the night. Would stay again. - SunnybrookJim

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

Excellent facilities. Very clean bathrooms and laundry. The grounds are well kept as is the sparkling pool. Very friendly staff and night staff to keep others out. This is an adults-only park. No one under 18 allowed to stay so there is no "kids" noise. Wi-Fi usable but not the fastest and dropped out more times than it was on. The only gripe I would have was some of the more permanent residents thought they owned the place and would take refuge in the games room from the heat but would then stretch out sleep on the lounges so there was nowhere to sit :(. - Liane63

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

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
