Nevada RV Parks: The RV parks in Nevada You Want to Visit!
RV parks in Nevada often are part of a casino operation, though it’s sometimes hard to tell whether the park runs the casino or vice versa. Other Nevada RV parks, apparently disassociated from casinos, are what you would expect to find in virtually any state.
In many cases, Nevada casinos without RV parks will allow RVers to “boondock” in their parking lots as long as the rigs are self-contained. Their theory apparently is that you’ll be grateful enough for the favor to drop a few bucks at their tables.
The following are the Nevada RV parks my wife and I experienced on a 30,000-mile adventure that we undertook in search of our country and of ourselves. The trip is recounted in my book, In Search of America’s Heartbeat: Twelve Months on the Road.
We passed through Nevada both going and coming on our road trip, and stayed at different Nevada RV parks on each visit. On one or the other of these visits, we encountered:
Arizona Charlie’s Boulder RV Park in Las Vegas. This RV park provided paved interior roads, 239 spaces, 200 of them paved and with full hookups, 92 of them pull-throughs. Laundry room, several restaurants, heated pool, hot tub, recreation hall. Also blackjack, craps, roulette, slots, video poker, live entertainment.
AVI Resort/Casino & RV Park about 10 miles south of Laughlin on the Colorado River. The resort, the casino and the RV park are operated by the Mojave Indian Tribe. The RV park provided gravel interior roads, 260 gravel sites, more than half of them pull-throughs, all with full hookups, wireless internet access, cable TV, laundry room and golf. The wind blows here, and the park can be dusty. Not much in the way of landscaping or similar amenities, but located amidst starkly beautiful desert country.
Hi-Desert RV Park in Winnemucca. This RV park provided paved interior roads, about 130 gravel sites, most of them pull-throughs, all with full hookups, cable TV, laundry room, groceries, LP gas, heated pool.
Boomtown Hotel and Casino RV Park near Reno. This RV park provided paved interior roads, more than 200 paved sites with patios, most of them pull-throughs, all with full hookups, wireless Internet access, cable TV, laundry room, RV supplies, heated pool and hot tub. Located next to the not-so-scenic Truckee River, with free shuttle to the casino with its gaming and several restaurants, and to Reno.
