Need recommendations for RV parks in the area (not Las Vegas.) From our research, it appears that a couple days roaming around the park would not be misspent. Would appreciate your thoughts about the park.

TIA

We love it! Absolutely gorgeous place! Believe there are two campgrounds- as I remember. We liked Atlatl - allows camping basically “in the rocks”. Short walk to petroglyphs. The most scenic sites (our preference) have minimal services, as I remember. From the website,
“Atlatl Rock Campground has 44 sites. Each site is numbered and spaced out from its neighbors. Sites on the outside of the loop back up against walls of red sandstone.”

Enjoy!

Check out the Overton area. Some friends winter there and enjoy. Also the casinos in mesquite have some deals if you are looking for that.

Not sure what the NPS at lake mead has to offer.

Now keep in mind those spots are first come first serve.

If you trek to the other side of lake mead and over by the Hoover dam, check out Willow Beach. They have full hook ups and boat rentals

Beautiful place, love the red earth tones there like Sedona and parks around Moab. As mentioned above, since it's first come look at other options for plan B in-case you can't get in.

If you get to Overton, be sure and eat at Sugar's. We think they have the best hamburgers.

We've fished Willow Beach many times and the store owner did say that the RV park was going to be rebuilt but haven't been back because the fish stocking was cut back a lot.


Did they ever rebuild that old hotel? I wouldn't mind staying there and towing my boat there. It is a nice spot with some huge stripers.

We were out in that area in April and Lake Mead is still way down because of CV low snow pack in the Colorado River headwaters. The Valley of Fire is still very spectacular, though.

Ditto to everyone's comments, we stayed in the main campground at Valley of Fire last April and found it amazing! It a beautiful park and we had no trouble getting a site with electric and water. The dump station is just outside the CG. One thing we found odd however was the layout of the CG in some of the sites had the hookup on the wrong side, little weird.

Tosh- Willow was rebuilt in Ď12. Only thing not updated was the hatchery and the road to it. The campground and marina are great.

Liked the park for sure. On way back we checked out some campsites in Overton, very friendly people and prices okay. Thought maybe we would stay there for a few weeks this year.

Mesquite is an interesting place, just be careful of some of the casino campsites, very small spaces.
