Camping in or near Las Vegas

Hi,

In previous visits we loved the proximity to downtown and the convenience of the Circus Circus campground, but, we understand that it has been closed.

We would appreciate suggestions for a decent alternative campground.

Just outside in Lake Mead Recreational Area is "Las Vagus Bay" campground. We've stayed there several times. If coyotes bother you it might not be the place you would like.

It might be too far away if you are making daily trips to the strip, but Valley of Fire state park is one of my favorites. About 58 miles northeast of Las Vegas. 2 campgrounds, one with some water & electric & hot showers, the other primitive. All first come. Beautiful red rock formations in the campground & park:
More photos from my last stop start here.

e always stay at Sam's Casino reason 1 is it is cheaper than most or we think it is. It is off the beaten path so be prepared to rent a car, tow your own, or have tow vehicle, to get around.

Either Spring Mountains NRA or Sam's Casino

Spring Mountains National Recreation Area is delightful, cool and green. I think that it has four National Forest Service campgrounds. It is about an hour west of downtown, past Red Rocks. We stayed in a site with water and electricity. The visitor's center has a delightful museum.

Sam's Casino is an immaculate gravel lot with full hookups and high temperatures. The bath houses are ok. The food at the casino is cheap but very slow. I will not eat there again.

We LOVE Valley of Fire. The scenery is spectacular and both of the campgrounds are nice. We've also stayed at Lake Mead National Recreation Area, both at the concessionaire run campground and at the federally run campground adjacent to it. The Lake Mead campgrounds are convenient if you want to take the tour of Hover Dam (I hope they're still offering that).

Isn't this resource wonderful, to get reliable, current information? We stayed in "Valley of Fire" in 2004 (proof attached, if I can get it to work) and will go again. Sam's place seems to meet our requirements for visiting the Strip, (to replenish our wallets and finance the trip). :^)

Many thanks to all.
