This RV Park is about what you'd expect in Vegas. Hardly any space between RV's. Dog Park is small, but the price is right - depending on what's going on in town. We have a value card. The staff is excellent.
Stay next to casino
At this moment in the year the camp is flooded with Canadians (as the temperature is mild and we are nearing spring break). We were lucky to get a spot although it is in the back of the park. Normally a quieter spot in the back, but now it is next to a bus stop at the end of their route. The buses tend to leave the motor running so the airco keeps the bus cool (anoying sound). There is also Boulder Highway that makes noise. However we understand that coming to Las Vegas is not going to a place of silence.
The restrooms are not up to date anymore. Two years ago they looked a little better, but apparently nothing has been done to keep it clean looking.
I've not used the pool, but the children that were in it, seemed to enjoy themselves.
Employees at the desk are friendly. Not all places have a lot of space. There is a small area to unleash your dog. A walk to Sam's casino is no problem (it has also cinema and food shops).
The wifi is not stable (maybe because of our place at the back of the campground).
Getting to this place is no problem and easy to find.
Paid $82 for 3 nights so roughly $27 a night, which is value for the money.
Las Vegas stay
Stayed twice in. 2015, 4 days in October and another 4 days in nov. it's now a KOA park. Liked it better when SAMs town ran it. Wifi is only good if within 150 ft of office or else you need to purchase it to have any. All the sites are small pea gravel. Be careful not to slip on it .. Office staff not the friendly type. The nice thing about the park is its right next to SAMs town , so the entertainment is there to enjoy.
I stayed here for three nights while visiting Las Vegas. The campground is right next to Sams Town. The sites have full hook ups and are close together. The sites hook-ups are on pedestals that are shared between adjacent sites so one side has to back in and the other pull in. The sewer connection is funky and creates an odor since its open and not a tight connection. This is why I gave it only 3 stars. The spaces are close together but its a good location and Sam's has a shuttle to the strip. There is a pool and the bath and laundry facilities are nice and well maintained.
We stayed here 3 days January 2012. The park is clean, the streets and spaces are wide and easy in and out.
Easy access to freeways and the Las Vegas Strip.

Sam’s Town RV is off of the strip, as are all but one, Circus Circus RV. Circus Circus has an RV park, but it is on the far, not very nice end of the strip, and even if you stay there your walk to what you will want to see is a major hike. We felt better off staying further out and taking advantage of shuttles that drop you off right in the middle of things than staying on the C.C. end…
Having said this, Sam’s Town is convenient in that it has a great shuttle with 2 drop off points. The shuttle is free to guests, runs all day and into the evening and takes only about 20 minutes going and 30-35 coming back. We found it very convenient and this is a huge plus to the RV park.
The park itself is basically a parking lot, but nice, stays full. We had a somewhat secluded spot off to the back, this was nice just because we had fewer campers around us, a little more room to spread out.
The major downfall to Sam’s Town is the septic system set up. It is a full hook-up RV park, but instead of the septic system having direct connections, you drop your hose into a ground hole, and this stinks…literally.
We had not been to a park like this and the smell is horrific.
It is a major negative to an otherwise good, convenient park for Vegas visitors. It would not prevent us from staying again but you should be forewarned. To combat the problem we kept all of or our drains (sinks, shower) plugged at all times except when we had to wash dishes, etc. and then immediately plugged them back up. This eliminates the smell seeping in because if not your entire RV smells like a bad toilet.
The other negative were the bathrooms being closed at inconvenient times. (and frequently with no warning) They close from 9-11 in the mornings for cleaning, so this makes for massive use from 6-9.
Also, they were often closed at 7-7:30 a.m. for indefinite times with no warning. At best bad communication, but we can’t really say that it isn’t always like this.
Overall, it is reasonable, only $25 a night, free cable with movie channels, no wi-fi, free shuttles, close to everything and the front desk staff were helpful.
If you bring drain stoppers, and plan to see the sights you’ll be fine. We would stay here again.
