Another vote for OASIS but with a bit of additional info.

Last time I was there (2006) Oasis was owned by one of the casino chains and ran a shuttle buss between all the company properties, so you can catch the bus and ride to the Strip, once on the strip you can get from most any Casino to the one next door very easily..

So odds you can ride to a spot that is as close to CES as you can get driving your car without the hassle of LV traffic... The Bus Driver gets the Excedrin headache and you arrive relaxed.

We stayed at Duck Creek RV Park last month, about 1 mile from Sam's Town going south on Boulder Hwy. We caught the bus right at the park and rode for $5 anywhere in Vegas for 24 hrs. I believe we got a night or two at the PA rate for lot rent. It was a little tight for our rig but we managed and were comfortable with the location and park security.

I worked in the tech industry since the '80s and I've worked at a booth at CES each year for the past few decades so getting a pass is easy for me, but hard and expensive if you don't have contacts. Sorry, I don't have any extras.

I guess I'll have to call Circus to find out. Their RV Park is still listed on their website.

Oasis sounds like a good place but it is very costly. I'll likely choose and make a reservation someplace this weekend. Circus is a great location, near where all my old team mates have rooms but it's not the most attractive park. The other option is to go over to Boulder Hwy and drive over to a hotel that has a show shuttle.

We visit Vegas often and always stay at the 'Hitching Post RV park'. Good Sam park around $30 ... Las Vegas RV Parks | Hitchin Post RV Park | Las Vegas

Not an RV resort but no big deal to us cause we go to vegas to visit my Nephews family and use the RV to sleep in. I don't go to vegas to experience an RV park/resort. There are just too many other things to do ...

I looked into it - I could go because of where I work, but cost is $200. I don't need to go that bad.

We stay at Arizona Charlie's on Boulder when in Vegas. A very nice park which we prefer over the others there. Did stay once at Circus Circus for the SEMA show and it was very convenient, but since it closed that is out for future shows.

I finally decided on Oasis which cost $304 +tx for 7 nights in one of their Premium pull-thrus. I found that they honor Good Sam and FMCA plus you get 10% for booking online. They do not offer a shuttle service - someone mentioned they used to years ago.

In respect to Circus Circus... Their RV Park is still open but a pull thru there was quoted at $321 +tx for the same 7 nights.

Thanks everyone for your input.

I am sorry but you are incorrect in respect to Circus Circus being closed. I spoke with them a few days ago and their RV park is still open for business, though it is no longer a KOA. There rate for a full-service pull through is $43/nt for Sun-Thu and $53/nt Fri & Sat.

You are correct about the Oasis shuttle service however, confirmed by them in a phone call.

A friend stayed at circus circus several years ago for the sema show (we were in a hotel) and we visited him there. Basically a parking lot with hookups, but it is of course right on the strip. May be worth the extra money for convenience sake if you are going to be spending your time in that part of town anyway. It is a bit of a hike to the convention center, but it is within walking distance. Given that all parking lots, streets, cabs, shuttles, and the tram in the convention center area are all PACKED at the end of the show day, you can probably walk home to circus circus faster than you can take transportation anywhere else.
