Good morning! A bit ago on AllCampgrounds, we began to explore Nevada by focusing on the best in tent camping. As we learned, there are a lot of huge, well-developed state and national parks offering a true glimpse of the sometimes harsh, but always serene beauty of this desert landscape.

There’s also great lakefront camping! But, admittedly, the weather can be harsh for non-locals, and that may make tent camping a challenge. That’s where RV camping comes in, and Nevada has enough RV parks for anyone! So, as we continue our 50 States Series, it’s on to RV camping Nevada!

Great RV Parks Throughout Nevada

It would take a book to catalog all the RV camps in Nevada, nevermind one blog post! But here are some of the top RV camping destinations. Note that many RV camps in Nevada are actually “RV resorts” — featuring camp-style landscaping alongside the kind of amenities you’d expect from a 4-star hotel. This may not fit everyone’s definition of “camping”, but many of these resorts are reasonably priced, and you can’t beat the features.

Las Vegas RV Resort: It just wouldn’t be Nevada if I got away with not mentioning Las Vegas a single time. This park is located in the city proper, but don’t be fooled by the glitz and glamor: there’s nothing “crazy” about Las Vegas RV Resort. Just plenty of great sites with full hookups, including both back-in and pull-through. Amenities include a spa, pool, fitness room, laundry, and plenty of handicapped accessible facilities.

Longstreet RV Park: On the other hand, if you’re in the Vegas area, maybe you want to embrace it. Longstreet RV Park is associated with the hotel and casino of the same name, so you can combine your camping with a little bit of wagering. The park includes 51 unique sites, with full access to all the amenities of the hotel included in every stay.

Bonanza Terrace RV Park Accommodating rigs up to 50 feet, with 50 amp service in most sites and wireless internet, Bonanza Terrace is located just outside of Reno, Nevada. Another strong entry in the specialized Nevada niche of RV camps that are also casinos, it’s right across from the Bonanza Casino, with table games and slot machines. Bonanza Terrace also features a propane filling station and secured storage area.

Chief Sleep Easy RV Park: With 62 sites offering full hookup and 30 or 50 amp service, Chief Sleep Easy provides itself (himself?) on high-quality cell phone reception, free wireless ‘net, clean bathrooms, and a top of the line clubhouse including big screen, satellite TV. At 26 years of age, it’s fairly well-established by RV park standards, but that doesn’t mean the facilities are old or poor; it lays claim to the title “cleanest in the area.”
