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 that 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.
Should Nevada be next in your itinerary, you can expect a wide variety of parks and campgrounds to stay in and explore. You might want to first revisit Chickery’s Travel’s previous post: 3 Simple Steps to Find the Best RV Campgrounds, so you can make the best decision depending on your travel needs. While planning your trip to the Silver State, consider these three parks.
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 is 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.
Lake Mead RV Village
Located inside the boundaries of Lake Mead National Recreation Area, this campground offers all the basic necessities (minus tent camping) and an endless array of activities to do. There are 115 full hook-up sites within walking distance to Boulder Beach. The amazing views of beautiful Lake Mead are the perfect backdrop if you want to go boating, sailing, swimming, and hiking.
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.
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.
