Well I know a lot of people love the Oasis but after the way we were treated there the last time we visited you could not pay me to stay there again. Also I understand they are trying to sell out and the maintenance has really fallen off. For what they charge you can do better.

You might try Terribles Casino RV Park on Boulder Hywy.

Don't think Terrible's has a casino or RV park on Boulder Hwy. in Las Vegas. Just left there two weeks ago. Try Sams town or Arizona Charlie's.

We liked Las Vegas RV Resort on Nellis Blvd, one block from Sam's Town Casino.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

We stayed at Las Vegas Motorcoach resort a couple of months ago, it's a very nice park, a little on the pricey side, but in the long run it's probably worth it. The park is very quiet. We've stayed at the Oasis many times, it's a little noisy and if you don't get one of the better spots, it's not very upscale. the Oasis has an adult and kids pool, the LV motorcoach resort has I think 5 pools.

The LV Motorcoach is deathly quiet and you will not meet anyone. The Oasis is crowded, but you meet people and they have a well stocked store on site. It is the difference between living in the city or out on a country estate. I tend toward the city.

I have stayed in the following Las Vegas campgrounds

Circus Circus KOA.. Nice, but all paved Free Wi-Fi and of course walking distance to "The Strip" Well C.C. but hey, that's on the strip. Typical KOA pricing (Expensive)
A place called Hiden Village, On bolder,, Next door to Thousand Trails (Well 2 drives down) May be out of business now.. Nice but I sometimes joke about "Clean Level Sites" (One gall had 14 layers of lynx levers under one corner of her rig) In truth, most of the sites there were level, Hers was the exception This was nice and not too expensive

TT Las Vegas Preserve (2 doors north on Bolder from the above) What can I say I am a member Small sites, but nice staff.

Moose lodge, Half a dozen water/electric only, Members only

Main Street Casino.. Main street is a Freemont Street Casino.. IF I ever make it back to Vegas I will be spendind some more time here if it has not closed.. Here is a critique of it:

Positive: Location, Location Location.. IT is behind the california which is a Main Street casino (Main Street owns it) which puts it in walking distance of Freemont even for a somewhat mobility impaired me (Though I will admit today I am a lot less impaired, since going full time my physical condition has really improved) PRICE, like 20 a night give or take a few bucks (This was in 2006)

Negatives: Neighborhood... The Hotel (You call Main Street and ask for the hotel, you register at the hotel desk) feels the need for a security guard to walk you back to your rig at night.. Nice of them.. Not sure I need that, but hey, Who's to argue.

The other side of the back wall is.. The central Bus terminal, and a Fire Station (Sirens in the night) and though the park has "Shrunk" a bit due to some other project that may have overrun it and closed it down by now it used to extend UNDER the freeway, there is also an off ramp right there (Traffic noise)

Since my house was 2 blocks off Telegraph Road in Detroit (Traffic noise) and the primary route for fire engines (Sirens) That,,, Did not bother me at all..

By the way.. FREEMONT is a MUST see in the evening after dark.

HINT: running the A/C fan on HIGH.. Covers a lot of noise.

As I said, if I return to Vegas.. and spend more than 2 weeks, This is a MUST STOP place



Covered Wagon (On bolder near Henderson) We decided NOT to park there.

OASIS, Stayed there two days in 2006, Nicest park I saw in vegas at that time, howevre also the most expensive

Note about Hidden Village and TT-Las Vegas and for that matter Sam's and Bolder Station and Arizonia Charlies.

The bus runs past them.. So you can park the towed, forget about Vegas traffic, Hop the bus and leave the driving to Gus, or whomever the driver happens to be. Great way to beat the traffic..

And you won't be able to say "I arrived at the casino in a 20,000 cadillac and left in a 200,000 chauffer driven.... BUS.. (However you might do it the other away around)

NOTE: Many places in vegas... The parking lots are BIG and I mean BIG, it can be a half mile from car to Casino... But the bus,, Door (Well driveway of the TT preserve) to DOOR

Saying the Motor Coach resort in Vegas is a bit pricey is like saying the Grand Canyon is a bit large! While it is a nice place, it's is way, way over priced. Mostly Prevost and Newell owners with a few wealth SOB owners own the properties here and then so be very stand-offish (yeah, that's a kind description).
We like Oasis but cannot stay there because of our commercial van lettering (really?) and we have stayed at Sam's and Arizona Charlie's. Our favorite by far is still the Circus Circus KOA right there on the strip. Only 3 reasons.....location, location, location!

I got to admit I liked The C.C. KOA TOO.. Nice park.. You can breakfast at the Pink Pony (One of the eateries in C.C.) or if you like gamble your wages away.

But if you are going to do that in the morning please play blackjack at Ballys at least for the next month thank you (And tip the nice young lady handsomely please)

Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort Update (to whom it may concern):

There is apparently a war going on there right now between the Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort Association and it's President and the individual site owners. I had planned to buy there but it's a total mess. Four or five lawsuits going on, threats of violence, and all owners have been assessed nearly $8,000 per site owned plus their monthly association dues have now gone up to $370 per month.

They're having financial problems because of overspending, lawsuits, and poor rental income (due to overpricing) and they don't seem to be keeping it up like they used to. Fountains in the pool area are empty, turned off, and not maintained. To try to get some more cash flow they've raised rental rates to the ridiculous so it's always very empty. At least you don't have to worry about a having a reservation.

Here's the current rates from their website as of today. (don’t know if these will align correctly but you can figure it out)

Daily Weekly Monthly
Standard site $69 $414 $1416 plus elec
Standard site with Build-out $89 $534 $1896
Premium site with Build-out $99 $594 $2136
-Plus Tax-

$1,586 to $2,392 with the 12% Tax (plus electricity) to stay one month? Ouch!

It's a nice RV park but sorry. At the moment I'm staying on a nice large site across the freeway at The Oasis RV Resort for $750 for a month and some sites start at $525 per month. No, it's not quite as well manicured as LVMR but a lot of that greenery is bought and paid for by the individual site owners, not the association. Before anybody should even consider buying there they should read up at this website:

mylasvegasrvresort

FYI

Mains Street Casion (Freemond and Main, RV lot is behind the California 2 blocks north, hard to find, check with Main St Casino hotel to be sure it's still there) Not the best area, nothing for kids, but it's a nice, low cost place within walking distance of the Freemont St Expierence AND... the central LV City bus terminal (Next door in fact but takes a bit more to get there since they are "Back to Back")

Circus Circus KOA... it's a KOA and it's Las Vegas. ON the strip.

Arizona Charlie's (on bolder)

Sam's Town (likewise)

Oasis, when I stayed there was nice but that was years ago, Just past the "South end of the strip) Just off Las Vegas Bvld) and ran a shuttle to I think the Harraha's line of casinos but again don't quote me on that.

Many others. If you are a member of Thousand Trails.. They have a Las Vegas "Preserve" also on Bolder (Between the tow above) and on the main bus line, For the cost of an annual "Zone pass" (What 450 bucks) you get 2 weeks in and one week out, and can come back after the week out for another two weeks in.

30 amps, water, sewer and by now I hope WiFi (Verizon 2-way Satellite, sucks but it's free, I'm using it no in another TT preserve)

KOA when I was there 60/night, 60 times 10 (not 14 but just 10) is 600 bucks.


Lots of rumors about TT's future, but hey, you save over 100 dollars off the KOA price just pulling in the gate for 2 weeks, you do not need to by a "membership" just the annual zone pass. which you can use over and over on the 2 weeks in one week out basis at any TT park in the zone, and what's more you do not have to renew it at the end of the year.

When it comes to membership camping... not much is better than that.

you can add additional zones too if you wish for a small fee.. A 2-zone pass is still cheaper than 10 days at the aforementioned KOA.
