Overnighting in Las Vegas

Thought we might see how the other half spend their money and call in on the way past next week.

Are there any casinos that allow overnighting in their parking lots or have RV parks attached at a reasonable cost. Won't bore you with my view of what "reasonable cost" is, but the closer to zero the better.
Doesn't have to be in the city either as we won't be staying long - just long enough to see all the bright lights.

walmart on eastern ave on the southeast side allows overnight parking.
i also believe the walmart on boulder highway across from sams town allows overnight parking. ive seen rv's there overnight.
the casino between boulder and las vegas allows overnight parking.
behind the rio is a large lot that allows overnight parking.
most of the casinos off the strip have large lots, and ive had no problem finding a parking spot.
sams town campground is a reasonable pay park that can be used to dump and refill with water if you overnight there.

Paris & Ballys Carparks

We stayed at the back of the Paris and Ballys in carpark - worked great for two nights probably cost us 10 times what we would have paid if we'd stayed in proper campground off the strip (LOL). Seriously though we found it ideal as did one end of the strip one day jumping on the deuce down to Freemont street and the next day did the other end south to the outlet shops. We'd stay here again for a couple nights fun before heading up to Mesquite as is our route generally.

Also Circus Circus has an RV attached to it or the Oasis Las Vegas off Windmill (I think) at the very south end are official campgrounds.

We stayed at the Clark County Shooting Complex; $20/night. Its a 20 minute easy drive to down town Las Vegas where you can park for free in one of the major casinos. The complex is located North of the city:

11357 North Decatur Boulevard, Las Vegas, Nevada 89131 (702) 455-2000.

It was very quiet at night with only minor sound when trap is being shot. We would recommend for those who want to minimize camping cost. Services are: 50 Amp, Water and sewer. No Wifi or cable with gravel parking area. Very clean, neat, well kept and secure with gate at night. I would suggest reservations at the below site.

Safe travels and THE JOY IS IN THE RIDE

If you park somewhere and drive a tow vehicle to the casinos, be aware that valet parking is free as all the casinos along the Strip. You may choose to tip but you control the cost and its very convenience to drive right up to the main entrance and pick-up your car there as well.

Yes, you are right. Not being a typical Australian, I can't handle heat and tomorrow is forecast at 100F. That is 25F higher than I prefer. Can run the generator of course, but a few hours of that and it is cheaper to stay in an RV park.

Thanks for the suggestions. We really only want to see the bright lights on the main strip so won't be dropping any money on the gambling halls.

I had a browse through the reviews of some of the places closer to the city centre - thieves, prostitutes, paedophiles, noise, heat, concrete etc etc. and that was for the classy joints

We have always stayed at the Circus Circus right on the strip, while its kind of expensive, its right there, no driving required and it has full hook ups.

We've stayed at Circus Circus a number of times; there's so little shade in general in Vegas that if it's 103 "in the shade" it's going to be 140 in the direct sun and closer to the surface of the sun inside the RV.

And as a kid I grew up spending summers there, so it's not like I mind the heat... but there's a limit to everything

I used to stay at the Las Vegas KOA (Circus Circus), but switched to Sam's Town. It is generally half the price of the KOA ($25-$30 a night) and it is a nicer campground. You are about 5 miles off of the strip, but they have a shuttle to Harrah's (on the strip) that runs about every 45 minutes (if I remember correctly) during normal hours.
