Suggestions for couple days in Vegas

Looking for suggestions for spending a few days in Las Vegas in our RV. Any recommendations for good locations for a little casino experience and a taste of Vegas.
Thanks.

Hi - it is what it is, but right behind Circus Circus on the south end of the strip, they have an RV park. It is really a big paved parking lot, but it does have full hook-ups, a swimming pool, etc., and, it is right on the strip.

Regards,

Andy

I stayed there years back when it was about 16.00 night/anywhere on lot. I understand now its selective by price. Something like if a palm tree is in the island to a space the prices are higher and the back lots are the cheapest and may not be cheap anymore. Any truth to this? Anyone got the low down on the price structures of it?

Circus-Circus is (or at least it was) operated by KOA. As astonge says, it is a big, paved parking lot with FHU campsites. Sites are close together, and it's expensive ($50 a night in 2007); but Circus-Circus is close to the Strip.

This year we stayed at Roadrunner RV. It is over on Boulder Hwy and is farther from the Strip, but it was less than $20 a night. I think it was a promotional price good for stays of 4 days or less. Roadrunner has FHU w/ 50-amp electric.

Roadrunner is near Sam's Town, which also has camping, but we didn't stay there because there were several reviews on rvparkreviews.com where people complained of sewer smells. We were there in June when it was 100 degrees, and we didn't want to take a chance on smells.

Vegas is a lot of fun. Walk the strip and take in the water fountain show at Belaggio, in the evening. You can duck out of the heat and roam all of the casinos, one more gaudy than the next, but very beautiful, and all different. For the real Vegas experience go up to Fremont Street at night, for the light show. It is really amazing.

We spent a month in Pahrump, NV, 60 miles and an hour drive, West of Vegas. We stayed at Terrible's Lakeside. Beautiful CG with grass!! and all sites are around a nice lake. Go over the hump to Pahrump.

Hi colemole,
In addition to what has been posted, consider a side trip to Hoover Dam.

On the strip: Circus Circus KOA.. NOTE: This is a KOA

Old Las Vegas (Freemont street) Main Street Casino RV lot. I will describe the good and bad points.

GOOD: it is like 2 blocks from Freemont Street Experience, which is a MUST SEE in Vegas in the evenings (you want to get there about sunset) This is old Las Vegas where you can still catch Lounge shows at a reasonable price (all the way down to free) in a small theater.. As opposed to "New Las Vegas where the tickets have triple digit price tags and the theaters can hold a thousand.

Second it's low cost.

On the medium... Not the best part of town, but if you return to your rig on foot after dark Security does escort you back to your rig.

On the bad: The original RV park extended under the elevated freeway. that part is now something else,, For all I know the rest of the park may be too (So call first, You call the casino hotel) There is also an exit ramp.. The back wall of the RV park. the other side is Fire/Ems and the central City Bus terminal.. In short lots of traffic noise and sirens. But turn the bedroom A/C on HIGH (Well turn it's Fan on HIGH even if you do not turn on the cooling) and it masks a lot of that noise.

If I ever get to Vegas again.. I may well spend my week out at Main street.

Oh, if you are a member of the Moose... They have a half dozen RV slots too (One big, five small) an even worse part of town, no security but I had no problems

On the east side (Bolder Hwy) There is Sam's Town, Arizona Charlies and more that have RV parks... There is an RV park on Bolder,, Covered Wagon.. I'd not stay there.

On the south end of the strip there used to be an OASIS park, Affinity owned from what I understand.. VERY VERY nice, but.... Rumor has it the property was going to become something else.

My recommendations would be the KOA or Main Street.

As a former resident of Sin City, I'd recommend Sam's Town on the Boulder Hwy. If you want to go to the strip, drive the toad.

Definately Sams Town in Vegas. Very nice camp ground and you can 'stagger'' from the casino to your coach safely. We stayed there for a week a couple years ago. IMO downtown is a rip off. Things are tooooo much cost. If you have never been to Freemont STreet and the Strip for sure GO ONE TIME. It is worth the traffic. In the casino I played Hold Um and pulled a Royal flush and they gave me five hundred dollars in chips ........... I did good and cashed in over eight hundred in chips and that included campaign for the table and a nice tip for the dealer and the waitress.............

How About Las Vegas RV Resort?

I'm getting ready to leave beautiful Aransas Pass (you can't believe the weather right now) and was toying with the idea of donating one of my Social Security checks to the Las Vegas economy next week.

The Las Vegas RV Resort is off Boulder Highway a bit South of Sam's Town and their weekly rate including taxes and electricity is less than $200.

Does anyone here know why this wouldn't be a good place to spend a week the middle of October?

Excellant choice. We stayed their in July of this year for several days. Sams's Town was kind of a joke and the food left much to be desired. Sam's Town does have a free shuttle that runs back and forth to the strip. Go for it. The resort was good and had a nice pool.

Oasis RV park on South Las Vegas Blvd and Blue Diamond road. Walking distance to shopping, groceries, and about a $12 cab ride to the strip. Stay there every year and find it a great place, reasonably priced, and convenient.

Great Promotions and Money Saving Packages at Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort
