If you want to stay where the action is and at a Great price....Main Street Station in downtown Vegas. OK...it;s not much more than a parking lot but Good services(hook-ups) and good Security, plus your within walking distance to numerous Hotel/Casino's. We stayed there one New Year's and had a wonderful time.

We were just in Vegas a couple weeks ago and stayed at the Ls Vegas RV Resort. Decent place...nothing spectacular, but you're only sleeping there. Lots of room for large rigs and relatively easy to get to

They are very close to Sam's Town Casino, who has a free shuttle to the strip, if you don't want to drive yourself. We had no toad, so this was very convenient for us.

While there, we also discovered that Sam's Town also has a RV park, right next to the casino. You might want to check them out also.

We've been at Oasis for 2 weeks. Leaving Saturday. It's a nice place as others have said. The adults only pool is very nice - breakfast is about 5 bucks for 2 eggs, hash browns, 2 strips of bacon or link sausage, and toast. Lunch isn't much more and everything we've tried was good.

On numerous days - we have the pool and hot tub to ourselves. It's a pricey, but well cared for, good location. We visited the CGs out on Nellis and they weren't for us.

Just caution from one who lived there for a decade recently-
What ever you do- do not try to walk from "Downtown" toward the strip (Stratosphere south). DO NOT WALK EVEN 2 BLOCK NORTH OF THE STRATOSPHERE AT NIGHT. Between the two places is not a nice area to be at night.
Stay in downtown and drive to the strip but don't walk it.

Things look a lot closer than they are on the strip. Learn to use cabs or the tram to go between casinos. You'll kill yourself trying to walk it all. They're too far apart no matter how close they look.

There was a time that the Oasis was a rare find ....I mean everyone talked about it. Not saying it's bad but if you are paying full price, I think you can do better although last time I stayed their, they were part of Passport America....for that price...its right on the money!

I have looked at a lot of parks here... where do you think you can do better? We had to extend our stay here for 2 weeks and ran all over town looking, and for the savings in dollars nothing was worth moving to. Just what I saw... and since we needed to be close to a doctor I couldn't justify moving. And to me, the area around Nellis is less than inviting. There are quite a few homeless people in that area - and even some around here. Ya pays yer money, Ya takes yer chances....

I second that! I was in Las Vegas recently (stayed at the Circus Circus RV Park) and I much prefer Laughlin.

Welcome to fabulous Las Vegas! Our home! There is an Oasis RV park at the south end of town, freeway adjacent. Very nice park, gated/guarded. Arizona Charlies' is close to downtown. There are several parks on Boulder Highway. Kings Row is most likely at the lower end. Avoid the area of Nellis Blvd, it's seedy. There is a double decker bus tour of the city, especially nice after dark. Freemont Street (free)is a must, but it's really for adults only. City is grappling with the issue of entertainers now. Schedule a tour of Hoover Dam ($). If you can, walk the strip (free), use caution. It's going to be 109 this weekend. Perhaps another evening activity. A great place to watch the Bellagio water show is from the café at the Paris ($ at the café or free in front of the Bellagio). The pool/fish tank at Golden Nugget, complete with sharks, is a great view (viewing is free, may be $ for pool use) Mandalay Bay has a shark reef ($) & there is a dolphin habitat at the Mirage ($). We have 2 water parks, look for discount tickets. The Welcome to Las Vegas sign is now paved, with parking. Take your picture there (free). Have a great time! Don't forget to gamble, we need the revenue!

Ms883, what do you mean, "City is grappling with the issue of entertainers now".

Some entertainers are viewed as overly aggressive, demanding money for photos, etc. The city is also concerned there are too many entertainers. Finally, some are "adult" in nature and the area can be packed with children. Here is a link to a recent article in the Las Vegas Review Journal. I don't have an opinion, one way or another. Just providing information. More police, warning signs part of Fremont Street crackdown on street performers | Las Vegas Review-Journal

I do business in Las Vegas on a frequent basis so I take the RV, the three dogs, and we typically head to LV Motorcoach Resort and get the top level site since my company pays for the gas and nightly fees.

That being said, I was there last month for business and my company said that it was mandatory that I stay at the Aria. Despite that edict, I drove my RV, once again, but I had to pay for the site, so I stayed at Oasis RV Resort. They did pay for the gas.

LV Motorcoach Resort only allows Class As and typically has few kids running about. Almost all of the sites are privately owned and are rented out by the office. Oasis RV Resort allows all different types of RVs and has a lot of kids. Each has its own flavor.

But they do have a separate kids pool at Oasis which takes some of the pressure off the adult side. And kids need an adult with them at the kid pool. Spent 17 nights there ending last week and never had a problem with kids. And the adult pool was always sparsely used.
