Las Vegas Camping

By Campendium


Most people wouldn’t think of Las Vegas as a camping destination, however, there’s a lot more to Vegas than casinos. Las Vegas is surrounded by outdoor recreation opportunities, including Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area to the West and Lake Mead National Recreation Area to the East.

Las Vegas Campgrounds: On the Strip


The only full-hookups option on the Las Vegas Strip is the Circus Circus RV Park. It’s basically a parking lot with hookups, but it’s also central to all of the casinos.

Las Vegas Campgrounds: Off Strip


Our favorite full-hookups RV park off the Strip is Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort. Oasis has all the resort amenities, from a gym and a pool, to mini-golf and a clubhouse. The park can be on the expensive side, but their spots range in price and if you’re looking for a monthly rate it can be pretty reasonable.

Camping Near Las Vegas


Thirty minutes west of Las Vegas is Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. It’s also where you’ll find the Red Rock Canyon Campground. It’s BLM, so it’s dry camping and lacks in amenities, but the beauty of the park itself makes it worth a visit.


Thirty minutes east of Las Vegas is Lake Mead National Recreation Area. We’ve boondocked many times at Government Wash, however, those looking for full hookups at Lake Mead might prefer Lake Mead RV Village at Boulder Beach.

There are many boondocking options and official campgrounds at Lake Mead, so be sure to check out the Lake Mead National Recreation Area page and filter your preferences.
