We loved this campground but compared to others there are fewer amenities so we rated it 7. It is 17 miles out of Vegas at 7000' near Mt. Charleston. We had site 7 with a view of the mountainsides, trees all around, privacy and visiting wildlife. The picnic tables are concrete as are the fire rings and both are on a concrete pad. The tent pad was very large and level. On the downside, leveling the motorhome took double boards on one side, the road into the campground is narrow with a circle at the end that you must be able to drive around (think length of your unit) to get out, pay showers, no dump station, no playground and no water at any site, although it is accessible to fill your tank. Hiking is available everywhere, you are close to Red Rock Canyon and Vegas, there are a few restaurants within 1 mile and you can completely relax. Very popular so arrive early in the week or make a reservation. We will stay there again. Rate is with Access card.
Very little shade, unlevel sites, only a few will readily accommodate large units. Ours is a 36' motorhome and it took several tries to get level on site 45. Electricity has been upgraded to 50 AMP in all of the electric sites but one. Most of the sites are multi-level with tables and fire rings below or some times as much as 40' above you if you were in a camper rather than a tent. Very hilly terrain with winding roads, although the campground is well designed considering the difficult terrain. We had a nice view of Hensley Lake. Rangers and hosts very helpful.
We enjoyed this park even though there was noise from the construction on the adjacent Diversion Dam. The site we reserved was not the size indicated on the internet, but there were other open sites we could use and it was no problem to change. Not all sites have electricity. Pads are paved but not level. The showers cost $1 for about 2 minutes and the doors have a combo code lock on them. No dump station. Great day use area adjoins and there are miles of trails. Rangers were very accommodating. Close to small town with all the amenities necessary. We would stay here again. Rate was with America the Beautiful Access Card.
Rating is 7 only because the park has so much highway noise as it is situated along I-5. The campground is very park-like with nice grass, great walking and bike trails and all the sites have tables and fire rings. Loops B-E have sewer hook-ups but the sites are very congested. A loop is tent camping only . We stayed in F loop where sites are more spacious but have no sewer. Pads are paved but not level. Great staff and park rangers. We have stayed here before and will stay again if we return to this area.
Nice campground although the site dimensions seem to be overstated. Showers are push button with no temp control. C loop has the largest sites. Some have sewer, all have electricity and water. The other loops have more privacy between sites but they are smaller and felt more hemmed in. Park includes a nice lighthouse, beach access and even horse friendly camp sites. We would definitely return if in this area.
