1 Park 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
