There really is something about the state of Nevada that makes it near perfect for an RV adventure. It could be the inviting weather, the vast terrain, or even the warm hospitality of the locals. Most likely, though, it is all of those factors combined that make Nevada part of every RVer’s bucket list of destinations to explore. Even better, you can expect a wide variety of parks and campgrounds to stay in and explore.
Cave Lake State Park
Located in Ely, Cave Lake State Park has all the basics you need like pull-thru sites, big rig access, tent camping, and even free Wi-Fi. It also has an abundant and diverse wildlife. There are plenty of things to do here, including boating and fishing. If you’re visiting in the summer, you can go swimming, hiking, or participate in the Annual Bathtub Races. If you’re visiting in the colder months, ice fishing, skating, and snowmobiling are just some of the winter activities you can do at the park.
Great Basin National Park
Great Basin National Park is a stunningly beautiful and diverse landscape located in the eastern part of Nevada. It is home to Wheeler Peak, the second-highest peak in the state, and Lehman Caves, a limestone cavern filled with unique and intricate formations. The park is also home to the oldest living trees in the world, the bristlecone pines. Camping at Great Basin National Park is a great way to experience all that this incredible park has to offer. And with six campgrounds, there’s bound to be one for you to enjoy all the park has to offer.
Lake Mead National Recreation Area
Lake Mead National Recreation Area has several campgrounds and dry camping areas. Our favorite full hook-up campground is Lake Mead RV Village offering 115 sites within walking distance of Boulder Beach. The amazing views of beautiful Lake Mead are the perfect backdrop if you want to go boating, sailing, swimming, and hiking.
Valley of the Fire State Park
Another stunning state park in Nevada that offers a fabulous campground is Valley of the Fire State Park. We love it so much, that it made our list of the best State Park campgrounds in the US. It has 72 campsites with power and water set among stunning red boulders. Well known for its amazing hiking opportunities, no visit would be complete without trekking the Fire Wave Trail, a 1.7-mile out-and-back trail that was so surreal we felt like we were on Mars.
Oasis Las Vegas RV Resort
If you’re looking for a little more luxury, Las Vegas RV Resort in Las Vegas is a more upscale venue. With full hook-ups on a landscaped site, pools, and a putting course, it’s a great choice for those who want the authentic RV adventure plus the luxurious amenities of a modern resort. You can enjoy a bevy of activities including touring the grounds on the resort’s famous pink jeep or even playing various casino games.
Gold Ranch RV Resort (Reno)
Reno, Nevada is a great destination for outdoor enthusiasts. From the Truckee River to the Sierra Nevada Mountains, there are plenty of opportunities to explore and enjoy the outdoors. Whether you’re looking for a peaceful day of fishing in Lake Tahoe, a challenging hike in the mountains, or a thrilling ski or snowboard adventure in the winter, Reno has something for everyone. No trip to Reno would be complete without a visit to Lake Tahoe. Use this Guide to Secret Cove Lake Tahoe to find one of the hidden gems of the region.
A Casino Detour
And while you’re in the state why not take a detour to Las Vegas? Nevada after all is home to Sin City, where tourists from all around the globe regularly converge to enjoy the very best casino experience in the world. The Strip continues to be a moneymaking machine, with its largest resorts raking in three times more profit from gaming and attractions in the 2016 to 2017 fiscal year than the previous year. Sin City, clearly, is still thriving even as casinos everywhere are fending off the rise of online casino gaming, primarily due to advancements in gaming technology. Atlantic City Blackjack Gold from Slingo is a perfect example of innovative takes on traditional classics that gaming aficionados anywhere in the world can play using their mobile devices. In total Slingo has 21 games in its roster some of which integrate live dealers into the gameplay, and with virtual reality also now starting to enter the online picture, there is a distinct possibility that more and more players will eschew a trip to Vegas and instead just play at home. That being said, we highly recommend a visit to the city if you are camping and traveling in the area.
Even with the digital revolution, RVers need not worry as Nevada’s campgrounds and RV parks are surely here to stay. And there are tons of great ones in Nevada for you to enjoy.
