Call Main Street Station Hotel/Casino, the RV Park is just a block or two down the street. I stayed their last New Years....you wont find "much" shade but the utilities work well and if your going to be in the downtown area anyways....it would be the place to stay. You'll be able to check on the doggies too but, as Im sure you know, have back-up plans on making sure there are no problems with your air conditioning. Rates are Cheap....probably about 15-18.00 night. HAVE FUN!

PS.....there is a Dog area but its not very easy to get to, sorta at the NE area of the Park. Certainly use window awnings if you have them although putting out your main awning(as in to keep it cooler) probably wont be possible...side by side hook ups on Pull through sites. If you can get an end spot....you might get the main awning out.

Once you had decided on a park, try to get a spot with your MH facing east. That late afternoon sun on your windshield will make it very dificult to keep your MH cool, even with both AC runing. I carry this reflective bubble rap type materal that I place in my windshield when I'm stuck facing west.

Be very careful walking the dogs. The concrete and asphalt can be hot enough to burn their feet at that time of year.

Any suggestions appreciated.

Jake, I don't envy you being in Vegas in August, I was there almost 2 years ago and I remember day time temps of 118-120. You can always look forward to the cool down at night, temps got down to a frigid 90-92 degrees ...

We stayed at the Las Vegas RV Resort and it was a nice place.

Stayed at Circus Circus last August. The "campground" is a paved parking lot. It was very hot and dirty. No place to walk our dog. If you bring your dog I recommend you look elsewhere.

Also stayed at Las Vegas Motorcoach resort which was much better. Further from the strip but much better for us and the dog.

We just left the LV Motorcoach Resort this morning. Stayed 5 nights. Price was $60 during off season. Not far from Oasis, but more nicer in my opinion. Spacious sites. Grass at most sites. 5 pools (we had one right across from us. And this time of year, not a whole lot of people around. We used to Stay at the Oasis, but found this resort to be worth the extra money.

RV Park in Las Vegas

We just left there at 105 degrees. The Las Vegas RV Resort is the best. We had a large lot with lots of shade trees and grass....nice for dogs. They only allow class A rigs, friendly staff, gated, a dinner and lots of pools. It is located on Arville. I agree with prior posts that it is much nicer than the Oasis. There is a special discount if you are in the service or served in the service.
