TOPIC: Viva Las Vegas Baby!

Viva Las Vegas Baby! 5 months 3 weeks ago #1

Anyone know of any good RV places to stay in the immediate Las Vegas area? We may be there in November. It's either a hotel or an RV Park for us. We're looking for opinions/options on the RV Park. The hotel has already been determined if we have to go that route. It will be a Mon-Fri stay.

Your suggestions would be appreciated. The LVM Resorts looked pretty good but it's a Class A park only.

We stayed at Las Vegas RV Resort a few years ago when we were on our way to AZ for the winter. It's a ways from the main strip, but Sam's Town has a free shuttle to and from the strip.

Very nice resort with big rig spots and if I remember, the price was about $32 a night with Good Sam

What’s your budget? There are several RV parks on Boulder Highway that I would not consider to be resorts. They are a relatively inexpensive place to unhook so you can see Las Vegas. We are members of Thousand Trails so always get a spot there (on Boulder Hwy) and use that as our base. Not the best part of town but it does have security and we’ve never had any problems there.

Budget is not an issue...Just trying to find a really nice (and very safe) location. After Vegas, we have considered a route thru Colorado. No hurry...We have 3 weeks to get back. It looks like trouble in Colorado and upper New Mexico around that time. Many of the RV parks look to be closed (due to snow? - End of season?). If we can't come back that route, we might have to cut thru Roswell, NM and dip into southern Texas. We were hoping to catch the tree seasonal changes.

Oasis Las Vegas Rv Resort on the south end of the strip, across the interstate from Bass Pro Shop/Silverado casino, food & shopping nearby.

These (2) Resorts seemed to be the best I could find on line (Oasis and RV Resort). They are both located near the strip. I thought others might have equal recommendations. Maybe tell where NOT to stay...I've read a few reviews on each. One seems to cater more to family's (which could mean a lot of screaming kids). The other seems to cater to 55+. Both seem to cater to dogs. One is on the freeway (noise), but I can;t imaging the other being any better. It is Las Vegas and folks stay up all night long as I remember from our last trip there about 35 years ago.

As far as the safety of the resorts, is one any better than the other these days? Does either have walls or security? It's not a show stopper (no pun intended). Just curious...

Any good shows that anyone recommends?

Any good places to eat?

Last time we were there, they had actual coin machines. We won $500 worth of nickels. That was a kick...I understand now that they have moved other forms of payment?

Any recommendations for practically newbies? I thought I might try a craps game but I know nothing about it.

Now...as far as budget, I do have a budget there. I'll be there PRIMARILY for a convention...

How's parking with a dually? Better off walking or a cab?

Thanks in advance for suggestions.

When we go the DW has to eat once at the Main Street Station casino buffett, not that it's any better, or worse, than any other, she loves the building it's in, I'll agree it's unique.
If you haven't been 35 years do you have a surprise waiting on you!!
As far as parking your dually, we've always found parking, it may be 2-3 blocks further away than we would like, but there's parking.
As for shows, bring LOTS of money, it's not the Vegas of 35 years ago when everything was cheap, a free buffet here or discounted show there, now it's the opposite, nothings free.
Would recommend a drive to the Valley of Fire to the north a bit, it's definitely worth the drive.

Either of the two resorts you found would be great. Red Rock Canyon, Hoover Dam, Valley of Fire (as mentioned) and if you have the time the Grand Canyon Skywalk or a helicopter ride to the Grand Canyon is spectacular.

As far as Vegas, it’s completely different than 35 years ago. Craps is not really a game for beginners but downtown you can still find some cheap tables and the dealers will walk you through your bets and odds. No coins any more, you put your money in the slot and you get a paper ticket that you cash in, if you’re lucky.

You’ll be amazed just at the sight seeing on the strip. Dually parking is no problem as most all casinos have outside lots. One of our favorite places to eat is Cafe Lux at the Venetian, and Tracy’s favorite drink is Voodoo Tea at a stand outside Treasure Island. We like Claim Jumper for non-casino eating. Also make a trip downtown to Fremont St. The city enclosed that and it’s all walking for a few blocks. You will see things that you will surely shake your head at. And I’ve heard don’t bother with the Gold and Silver (Pawn Stars) shop. More gimmicky than it’s worth.

We winter in Las Vegas & stay at the Oasis RV Resort. Very nice place. Has 24 hr. security, a café that serves breakfast and lunch, & a store. Has a little over 900 full hookup sites. We have been there the last 3 years and have our reservation for this year. It is about 2 1/2 miles from the strip, but very quiet & nice park.

For those wintering in the area, any suggestions about how far in advance reservations ought to be made? We need the first week of November but I'm not sure when everyone starts moving in for the winter. Sooner is probably better than later?

In the places we've wintered the 1st wave of snowbirds is usually between mid Sept to Nov 1st, second wave is usually Dec 26th to Jan 1st, as soon as they can get there after the holidays.
If you have firm dates go ahead & book it now to be on the safe side.

The parks do fill up fast so probably now would be the best time to make a reservation.
