Vegas and Los Angeles

We have never been to Vegas or Southern California. Hoping for some suggestions for RV Parks in both locations. We'd like to be near the strip in Vegas and somewhere in California where we can do day trips with our tow vehicle. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

If you want to be near the strip probably the only thing left is the Oasis or the Las Vegas RV Resort

In LV, staying at Circus Circus' KOA is a good option. Surprisingly quiet for location.

The KOA is no longer at Circus Circus, it is now at Sams Town.

We constantly stay at Oasis in Las Vegas, a lovely park.
A base for Los Angeles could be Travel Village in Valencia or Castaic RV park in Castaic (near Valencia) Both are about an hour from down town LA.

IN vegas, when last I was there (2007) The Oasis was at the south end of the strip, A bit off the beaten path but not far.. HOWEVER do not unhook your towed yet. There is more.

I believe it was a Harrah's Property (may have the wrong holding company) as are several Casinos including some that are on the strip itself.

SO, they run a shuttle bus, Free ride to where you can give them all your soon to be lost wages (The nickname for the town is Lost Wages).

The KOA is now on the other side of town at SAM's. however you again need not unhook your towed as LV has very good public transport (BUS) that will take you to the strip with only one exchange... and that exchange... Is one block off the Freemont Street Expierence (Old Las Vegas and well worth the visit epically in the evening after sunset)

Though I do admit that is not the best part of town (Bus central never is)

If you belong to Thousand Trails, the park is about half way between Sam's and Bolder Station, and a bus stop sign is next to the driveway

There used to be a private park I think 2 driveways south of the TT park (They share a line fence once you get behind the front business). Do not know if they are still in business.

And there are more.. But that's all I can list for you.

Oh, Main Street Casino (Corner Main and Freemont) also owns the Californian (Same corner. other side of Main) and the block behind the Califorian.. When I was there last they had a campground,, This is next to the Bus station so again you are a long block and a half off Freemont. Also next to a freeway exit (Noisy) and the Fire Dept (Noisy) and so on but I do not mind the noise myself.. As I said not the best part of town but if you WALK to Freemont (We did) a security guard accompanied us back to the RV once we reached the gate.. park is hard to find, Call the Main Street Casino Hotel for more info.

Fremont Street is worth seeing. However it is not the best part of town, neither is the bus depot. I prefer to drive and pay for parking at the casinos.

They are indeed amazing, but they're nowhere near Los Angeles.

I would suggest Arizona Charlies on Boulder Highway. About 5 miles/15 minutes from the strip. Reasonable rates, decent sites and nice FHUs. This is in the eastern sector of town and a good location for doing the city. Perhaps not a fancy section of town, but not dangerous.

Being that I live in the area I would recommend staying at Lake Mead unless you enjoy the parking like tpye of camping the commercial campgrounds offer. Also there is the Red Rock Caynon campgroun; its dry camping there.

The Oasis is as close to the strip as you can get since the KOA moved to Sam's Town out on Boulder Highway. In Los Angeles there are several parks that are reasonable distance to the tourist areas, Walnut RV in Northridge is located between the 101 and the 118 freeways (also not far from the 405). It's a nice park. There's also Dockweiler RV park (NOT the state park) in Playa Del Rey. Valencia Travel Village in Valencia is right off the I 5 but I think the others are closer in to where you might want to go. I would recommend that you go to 1 or 2 of the California State Beach parks while there, they are right on the water, no hookups but most have facilities (not Emma Wood in Ventura). The ones close to Santa Barbara have beautiful views.
