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.
