Clean, modern, spacious. Lots of contractors staying there, and many retired military. All paved and lots of shade trees. The park was quiet at night and situated within the base, so BX and Commissary were available along with base services for family activities. It's a long distance from the casinos out on the NE edge of the city. We'd certainly go back for an overnight, or for a weekend stay anytime.The park seemed to have lots of "seasonal," long-term people, but found room for us without a problem. The staff seem to be very accommodating and helpful. The in/out was OK although maneuvering around the guard house required concentration and care. The base is very quiet on the weekends, but occasional jet activity is to be expected. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

All the major stores are in Las Vegas along with unlimited food services.

We would have rated this park a ten like other reviewers if it hadn't been for the problems we encountered which were probably a fluke. We made reservations 2 1/2 months early but they got the arrival date off by a day. When we didn't show up on the date they thought we'd be there they gave our site away without calling us. When we arrived we were forced to take an unsatisfactory space without full hookups that we couldn't fit into. It took a full hour to finally get maneuvered to where we could get hooked up to water and electric. That evening the mgr came by, said we weren't supposed to be where we were (although another employee had put us there) and wanted us to "just scoot over a few feet." (Ever try to "scoot" a fifth wheel sideways?) We couldn't reach the electric hookup if we moved even one foot over! Lining fifth wheels up end to end around a circle doesn't give room for the tow vehicle to hook up. We almost had to get our neighbor to move his motorhome to let us out, but just managed to squeak by. If we'd been where we'd reserved a space we would have had a very different experience. As it was we were not happy. We would stay here again but not without calling a few days before arrival to make sure they had our reservations correctly recorded. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

Exceptionally managed, laid out in an uncommonly logical manner, with enormous sites separated by trees and desert landscaping - easily one of the best military campgrounds around. In Las Vegas, security and a reasonable price are not easy to come by, and a stay here meets both requirements. Yes, there is aircraft noise and reveille is played early on weekday mornings, but if you've been in the military you won't mind. Great WiFi with multiple antennae throughout the park. Good Verizon cell and 4G, and not much to block TV Satellites. On check in, the friendly office staff gives you a hefty welcome package and escorts you to your site - a fitting welcome to a great stay. We'll stay here again.

This is a great park! We stayed in a pull through (site 1) but we walked around to see many of the other sites. There are some near the office that are placed around a circle that are not as nice, but the rest of the sites are really spacious. There is lots of room between each site. There is concrete where the RV would be. There was a very nice concrete pad with a picnic table. It was easy to get in and out of the site. The wifi is the best we have had in a long time. There is a very nice fenced dog park and places outside the park to walk the dog. There is no cable TV but you can get a number of over the air stations. We will definitely come again.

This is the best FamCamp that we've stayed at. All utilities worked great (with smokin' fast wi-fi) and the concrete pad was level. This was the longest site we've been in. After putting our 40' coach where I wanted it, we parked the car in front and had room for 2 more vehicles to park behind the coach. Check-in was quick, efficient and friendly, and you get an escort to your site. Because pull-throughs are oriented around circles, the sites were extremely spacious. When in the area, we will certainly stay here again. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

This is definitely one of the nicest RV parks we have stayed at. Every thing here was first class. A staff member led us to our site. There are concrete pads with various trees and bushes. Good entrance briefing about all services available. Excellent Wi-Fi. We had good TV reception using our antennae except for 3 stations. We will definitely return when we come to Vegas again.

This is the nicest military fam camp that I've seen. Plenty of large, level spots laid out in large spoke patterns with ample space and extra parking. Amenities included grassed dog run (practically the only grass in Las Vegas), playground, laundry, and good Wi-Fi. Plus you have the Nellis AFB amenities close by. We stayed a week and they were never full but I'd recommend reservations anyway. Both Verizon & ATT were 4G/LTE. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a regular stop for us when transiting the area, and is consistently superior in price and quality over other parks in the area. Security is important in this town, and being on the base provides a relaxing stay while being close enough to access I-15 and the Las Vegas Strip. Check in was quick, friendly, efficient, and we were escorted to our site by a host. Sites are both back-in and pull-thru, and on this visit we were located in a pull-thru that was long, level, and concrete with a large patio and table. There are moderate sized trees to provide shade, and sites are well spaced. Hookups are convenient and worked well. The park WiFi was excellent throughout our two week stay, and Verizon cell and 4G was strong. Base facilities are excellent, with a large commissary and BX, and gas was significantly less expensive than off base. The only irritant was the loud playing over loudspeakers of reveille at 0360 each morning. Lots of jet noise, but only during the day. An excellent value and great place to stay, we'll stay here again. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

If you can't get into a full hook spot then don't even bother. We pulled in where shown for our spot, then moved to another spot when the host realized there wasn't a water hook up. Showed us our second spot...and we left. Partial spots are in a circle. 6 Rvs per circle, end to end. So you have to parallel your rig into a very tight spot. 30/50 amp hook ups are every other spot. All the 50 amps were used so we had the 30 amp. Door opened to the middle of the circle which was dirt and weeds. Very disappointed.

We were really impressed with this park. The site are spacious, level, concrete. The utilities work good. A pool would be nice. There's a walking track all the way around the park. The WiFi was fair. The park is well cared for and very attractive. The commissary and BX are close enough. Don't miss the ticket and tour office, we got a couple of really good military specials there.

We travel with dogs, so the off-leash dog area was an outstanding feature at the FamCamp. The staff was very nice and professional. The spot assigned was a pull through and fit our 37' RV with toad attached for an easy overnight stop. Nellis AFB is close to the strip, and being on the main base, it was safe. We would come back.

Great park, lots of security, close enough to everything you'd want to see in Las Vegas but far enough away that it's nice and quiet (apart from the occasional F-18 or F-22). We arrived late into the Las Vegas area (after 11p) and had to do some research on how to get into the FamCamp. DO NOT go straight into the Nellis Main Gate while you're on Craig Road. You'll enter off Range Road (directly across from Nellis AFB north gate) which is .6 miles north of the Main Gate. You then go around a weird loop to the right that circles back to the security gate (which is big enough to fit even semis). We pulled in about 1AM and the park has 4 hook-up sites behind the office for late arrivals as well as 2 more dry spots out front. I'd suggest parking up front and walk around the temp sites, because some folks leave their 'towed' attached and you will never be able to get around them. The front office is friendly, efficient and it's great that you get a free bag of ice daily. The gas station, commissary and other retail facilities are on the main side of the base, while housing, the VA hospital, (HUGE!) solar array and FamCamp are on the west side. The Base Police rolled through every few hours, and our neighbors ranged from rigs as small as 25 foot Terry Travel Trailers up to a Prevost Bus with an older Rolls-Royce as their towed! Every guest we spoke to during our stay was very nice and recommended different casinos, buffets and shows to see. We will definitely stay here again, probably during the NASCAR race since LVMS is two miles up the road. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

Not a "resort," but an outstanding RV park. Concrete pads and patios - paved roads with curbing; plenty of parking for cars. Irrigated trees. Nice folks in office. Well maintained. Sign up for propane delivery on Tuesdays - saves a tear-down headache. 75-80 psi water pressure, so be sure to bring regulator. Showers are individual toilet/sink/shower 3/4-bath type arrangements - 5-ea., with four washers/driers in same building. Hot water is usually "luke," and showers could use some maintenance, but are usually reasonably clean. Biggest feature is SECURITY; it's behind the hospital - inside 24/7-manned gate - and adjacent to base housing. 6-month maximum stay, and judging by the number of empty slots, and the number of full ones in the "overflow" area, a reservation is likely mandatory. The usual big-box stores are close by, a truck-wash is about four miles away (for those of you who may be inbound, and in need of a wash - and no washing in the park), as is a medium/heavy truck repair and service shop just south of the truck wash (Allison-certified). It gets a bit windy - and office will remind you to furl your awning before you leave your coach unattended. We enjoyed the stay - hope to be back for a 6-month trial the next time. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.
