Las Vegas: Where to stay and where to avoid

Hello Fellow Travelers,

Wondering if anyone can advise us on places to stay in Las Vegas. Seems like there are areas to avoid so that info would also be useful. We have never been there and are planning a week in Vegas; we have a 45' motor home. How are the casinos for RV's? Any particular one you can recommend? There are lots of RV parks in Vegas that I read about in RV Park Reviews. Has anyone stayed at Las Vegas RV Park? If yes, what did you think of it? We'd like to be near the strip but don't even know if this is an option. We will also visit Hoover Dam and Lake Mead.

All advice would be welcome.

Thanks in advance,
Leslie & Stuart

We stayed at the Las Vegas RV Resort. Not sure if it the same as you are referring. We liked it very much. Clean, friendly staff, big rig friendly and a short drive to the strip. Easy drive to the Hoover Dam too.

Las Vegas RV Resort is a nice place with security at the front gate. Two pools very clean.

Nicest is Las Vegas Motorcoach Resort. Oasis is nice as well. Both about three miles to the strip.

In Vegas, we stay at Arizona Charlie's on Bolder highway, but have to call ahead to insure we get a long pull through. Friends stay at the RoadRunner just up the street. Both parks affordable >$25. Other parks in the area have gone KOA and prices have gone $$$.
If your driving your toad to Downtown , use the Valet parking at the Freemont Hotel, secure parking , walking distance to all the Downtown area; best $ you'll spend.

Agree with Skip, Arizona Charlies is reasonable with long pull-through sites. In addition there is free Wifi that actually works. All sites are 50 amps and the cost is reasonable, about $28/night on a weekly rate. In addition you are only 5 miles from the strip and parking there is easy and plentiful.

We stayed one night last month at Circus Circus RV Park (formerly run by KOA). Not much in landscaping and it is primarily just asphalt. For what it is and its location right on The Strip, it served our purposes well. Plenty of space for the big Class A motorhomes.

I'd stay there again.

We recently stayed at LV Motorcoach Resort and can say it was great. Our site had an outstanding outdoor kitchen. There are 5 pools located around the property. Easy drive to the strip

I have a Thousand Trails and MOOSE membership so have stayed at both of those.. Also Circus Circus KOA but alas that is no longer open, KOA is now at Sam's as I recall and I can tell you nothing about it.

I have stayed at Oasis (on the south end of the strip) for a couple nights. This park has mixed reviews.. What impressed me is the facilities were first class. The camp store was a branch type store off camping world. (Limted selection have anything tomorrow) good restaurant, Very nice park,, Shuttle to the Harrahs properties (Assorted casinos and such) so you can ride the bus and leave the driving to Gus.

Assortment of sites, Back in ,, Nose to tail, And pull through Some folks did not like the site they choose.. I liked mine. (pull through).

There is one on bolder Ave called Covered Wagon, I think it's in Henderson, not LV but I almost stayed there. This is a "no rigs over 10 years" park, they inspect your RV, pack them in like Sardines, the park store is decent but other buildings were falling down when I was there (Very trashy feeling) Charge extra for my cats because "They might get out and we would have to chase them down" (no way) and well.. That's why I parked at Oasis.

This is another vote for LV Motor Coach Resort. Can't do better than thin place.
