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. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

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. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.

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. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.
The new 215 loop provides fast and easy access to northern and western Las Vegas and is easy to access from the base. To visit the strip, park at the Westgate hotel off Sahara and use their monorail station. Parking is free and the monorail provides fast and easy access to the major strip attractions.

All hookups worked as expected. Staff were friendly and helpful. Dog park was a good size and kept well stocked with baggies and the garbage emptied. The grounds were kept neat and clean. The sites were spacious. WiFi could have been faster. We especially enjoyed watching the Thunderbirds and other jets practice flying. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Fifth Wheel.
Of course, visitors should not miss the Vegas experience. Enjoy it all.

Although on the NE side of town and away from the strip and downtown, it's nice to have the security of the base in the Las Vegas environment. During our many visits, hosts have been unfailingly friendly and helpful, and the escort to the site is appreciated. The unique layout results in most sites having more than the usual space, with trees and shrubs for privacy. Cement pad, patio, table, and separate parking are standard, and the WiFi worked well for us during our stay. Verizon cell and 4G were excellent, and there were many OTA stations along with a clear view of TV satellites. The jet noise during the day is expected, but be aware that the speedway north of the base can generate significant weekend noise during the evening. One of the best military campgrounds around, we recommend it over other parks in the area. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.
Large commissary and BX are located across the highway on the main base area. The "Station" chain of casinos has a military preferred program that offers good discounts on meals and movies.

Excellent service, Very friendly service. Quiet Park. Layout is a little different but it works. There are 4 large circles and 6 little circles. Park is Military only. Active and retired and guests. We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.
The strip is a few miles away. Hoover Dam and Lake Mead is 50 miles.
On Base is the Thunderbirds Museum. Within a few hours is a lot of Natl Parks

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.
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.
Be sure to see Valley of Fire State Park......extraordinary scenery!

Nice campground with many spaces. All sites are concrete and dirt, but there are trees and other landscaping around the park to keep it nice. A fenced dog run is provided with grass for your four legged companions. The office provides you with one free bag of ice per day, which is a nice benefit because our ice maker doesn't keep up in hot weather! We camped at Desert Eagle RV Park (Military Camping Only) in a Motorhome.

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.
