I do not give many 5s. Nor do I extend my stay often. This place is worthy of both of those actions. Clean, neat, organized, friendly, etc. They really just do not get much better than this campground. It is a bit on the pricey side, but hey..this is Vegas. One side note..the daily (Monday through Friday) morning and afternoon sorties by the fighter jets and the A-10s is a bonus. You can sit at your site and watch them come and go..or go over to the golf course and get a real good show!

We had a great time at Desert Eagle Campground. It is laid out very nicely. Large campsites and great water pressure. The staff is friendly. If you love aviation, this is the place to be. LOTS of jet activity, especially during Red Flag games. Thunderbirds are based here and they love to do fly-bys coming back from training. It is located close to Vegas but still far enough away. I have one HUGE complaint. The Wi-Fi is terrible. I could never get online to do anything. I could connect but it is so slooooow, I could not complete anything. When asked, they always said, they were working on it. There is NO discount for extended stays. We look forward to coming back again this fall, parking closer to a Wi-Fi antenna.

The camp hosts were awesome here. We arrived later at night and found the hospitality to be very comforting. The site was great, we hooked up with zero issues after our camp host guided us through the night into our spot. The bathrooms/ shower rooms were old and nasty. The laundry room was also old and small with outdated washers and dryers. Overall the experience was good. I would recommend the site to future campers.

This is our second stay this year. We love it here! Staff is very friendly and accommodating. This park takes reservations 6 months ahead. We have had to adjust our departure several times and the staff has gone out of their way to switch the computer reservations so that we can stay in the spot that we are in. Sites are spacious with trees and shrubs. Pull thru sites are very long. Walking path circles the entire park and dog park is nice - they could use better lighting at the park for use after dark. WiFi problems have been fixed and we didn't have any problems. Lots of over the air channels. Be sure to let staff know if you have satellite since there are a few sites that are in the trees and satellite coverage isn't possible. Nellis AFB is very nice and the hospital is right across the street from the RV park (walking distance). Unfortunately the base is not in the best part of Las Vegas and I would not recommend walking or riding a bike off the base in the adjoining neighborhood. However, better neighborhoods are just a short drive away. Las Vegas is a very fun city to spend time in. My only complaint is that the very numerous very nice individual bathrooms which are each equipped with toilet, sink, and shower stall, also has a large automatic air freshening device which is overpowering. The smell can actually be smelled outside and even at a distance from the bath houses. We will definitely be coming here again. Thunderbirds practice here during the winter and we get regular free shows. There is a lot of loud jet traffic (AFB-Duh!), helicopters, train, and the Las Vegas Speedway is just down the road. So, can be noisy but nothing that would keep us from coming back.

Check-in staff very accommodating. They give you lots of information to help make your stay in Las Vegas enjoyable and entertaining. The RV park is pleasant, well-maintained. It's a ways from the Strip, but it's doable. We would return.

I have visited the Desert Eagle on many occasions. As always, the staff is courteous, very helpful, and friendly. The reason for the mark down in the Amenities/Facilities is that upon arrival I was told there were a couple of "glitches" in the WIFI service. We stayed there for two weeks and never really were able to use the WIFI successfully. Tried all the tricks offered by the staff, but we just could not keep logged in for more than a few minutes at a time. At the $22.00 per night (high for a famcamp), I would have expected a working WIFI system. We will continue to return, though, as the WIFI is not the only reason for visiting the famcamp.

Truly an outstanding famcamp. Upon arrival, greeting was friendly and more than helpful. Directions cold be clarified, as we arrived quicker than expected. Base is active and well kept with first class facilities. Eill be adjusting our travel schedule to enable a longer stay. Keep up the outstanding work.

Stayed here for two nights on our way back to Tucson from Alaska. Camp Host's were extremely helpful, gave great directions for getting to Las Vegas downtown, and were overall a pleasure to talk with. Though our stay was short we will try to stay here again. Great FamCamp.

We stayed at this park for almost a month, 12 days of that in short term storage while we took a cruise to Alaska. The short term storage rate is $4/day - a great bargain. We noticed a lot of campers going through the main gate, located at Las Vegas Blvd. and Craig Road, like we did when we first arrived, not realizing that the campground is actually on the other side of Las Vegas Blvd, about 1/4 mile further north of the main gate. This is a great park and we enjoyed our stay. The staff in the office was very helpful. Great facilities too, including a state of the art gym with swimming pool and indoor walking/running track. We were disappointed to find the bowling alley was closed, but Sam's Town Casino has a beautiful bowling alley in their basement with $1/game bowling on Fridays. No one told us about the free ice so we missed out on that - and boy could we have used it! It was extremely hot in August!

One of the best, if not the best Military CG's we have stayed at. Large sites, extra long pull thru, easy access, and very helpful hosts. Typical of an AFB the water pressure is quite high and you need a water pressure regulator.

Great park, lots of security, close enough to everything you'd want to see in Las Vegas but far enough away that it's nice and quiet (apart from the occasional F-18 or F-22). We arrived late into the Las Vegas area (after 11p) and had to do some research on how to get into the FamCamp. Fortunately the instructions above were there - and spot on! When you enter, (at the 5 o'clock position to the Guard House) you then must go around an oblong loop to the right that circles back to the security gate at the 2 o'clock. This arc is big enough to fit semis that make deliveries to the Hospital. We pulled in about 1AM and the park has 4 hook-up sites behind the office for late arrivals as well as 2 more dry spots out front. I'd suggest parking up front and walk around the temp sites, because some folks leave their 'towed' attached and you will never be able to get around them. The front office is friendly, efficient and it's great that you get a free bag of ice daily. The gas station, commissary and other retail facilities are on the main side of the base, while housing, the VA hospital, (HUGE!) solar array and FamCamp are on the west side. The Base Police rolled through several times while we were at our rig (so I'm assuming they normally come through every few hours). Our neighbors ranged from rigs as small as 25 foot Terry Travel Trailers up to a Prevost Bus with an older Rolls-Royce as their towed! Every guest we spoke to during our stay was very nice and recommended different casinos, buffets and shows to see. We will definitely stay here again, probably during the NASCAR race since LVMS is two miles up the road.

The park staff is outstanding, providing a ladder to allow me to repair a roof vent that had become damaged during the trip to the campsite. Very helpful and courteous. If and when I had a question to pose to the staff there, they always had a friendly answer for me. We stayed in circle number One at spot # 7, closest to the WRM Warehouse for the hospital. Wireless signal at my location was tenuous at best, many times I would have to step outside of my trailer and walk to the middle of the circle to be able to use a wireless iPad or Android tablet. This is why I am only giving Amenities/Facilities a 4. Our spot did have plenty of shade trees, and the space we were given was more than adequate for my trailer and truck. This is our second time staying at the park, and will probably go back again in the near future.

This was our first visit. We were in site 86 which was perfect. Sites are spacious and afford privacy with trees and shrubs. Campground is very well maintained and staff on the ball and very friendly. This is definitely one of the best campgrounds we have stayed. Good location for touring the area. Recommend Red Rock Canyon and Valley of the Fire and also Hoover Dam. All within an hours drive. Commissary and Exchange very good and located across LV Blvd either through Main Gate at end Of Craig road or gate across from Range gate. We enjoyed watching the Thunderbirds and flight training. We plan to return end of 2013. Also want to mention dog park next to office is good and there are lots of dog stations in the park for bags and waste. Feel this is one of the cleanest parks we have stayed. Nice walking path around the park for exercising of dogs. Laundry facilities are clean as are the restrooms and showers. This is for sure first class operation and we have no complaints. Thanks to all the staff. Amy and John Stanton

Great FamCamp!! Located within sight of the Las Vegas Strip! Checkin was quick and painless. Well kept and given the Nevada climate the landscaping was commendable. We were here for the Air Force vs. UNLV football game. Too bad the Falcons lost but the Desert Eagle FamCamp was a hit! Our first stay and not our last!

We were here for the Air Force vs. UNLV football game. Too bad the Falcons lost but the Desert Eagle FamCamp was a hit! Our first stay and not our last!

What a great place to park for seeing the sights of Las Vegas and the surrounding area. The staff was friendly and helpful...The only down side, and this no one has any control over, is the weather.....HOT...HOT...HOT.over 100F the entire stay...but we managed to "donate" to the local economy thru playing the slots...just had to go in the morning when it was cooler...lol...The RV park is well maintained and does have shade trees, etc....Laundry room for our circle was neat and clean....75 cents to wash and 75 cents to dry....bath house very clean....an unpublished benefit is that you are allocated 1 bag of ice per day FREE....all you have to do is go to the office and sign for it....Small shoppette near park with minimal items & gas....A 24 hr. shoppette/class 6 store located on main base near the BX/PX....great commissary....we plan to stay again in the future, only we'll make sure to come when it is cooler...BTW....these folks deserve to get the west "Best Campground/RV Park" this year. They are aware of it and truly work hard to make your stay the best in the West....

Stayed here the last night of our 23-day trip. Plenty of spaces available, we had a nice pull through spot with full hook-ups in a quiet location. Friendly and helpful hosts and staff made sure we found and got properly situated on our site (the park layout can be a bit confusing...). We will definitely stay here again. Traveling in a Motorhome.

We stayed two weeks and the sites are beautiful with trees and lots of space between rigs. The staff is friendly and provided us with excellent service. This is the best FAMCAMP we have stayed at.

Didn't think we would enjoy camping in Las Vegas: nothing to do but go to casinos. Right? Wrong! Although these reviews are usually just for the RV Park, a lot has been said to make folks want to stay here. Rightly so since the amenities, staff, location adjacent to an excellent AF Base, and other items make this a choice place. The jets do fly low over the Park, but that is the sound of freedom. And many are Thunderbirds practicing, so you get quite an air show every day. Spaces are roomy, landscaping is terrific, the bath/laundry facilities are great, and the pace is just so clean! We haul around our recycling looking for a place to stow it: Desert Eagle has multiple recycling boxes for all commodities. The BX and Commissary are outstanding. Location is far from the tourist trap places. Although many here sit in their RVs all day, you can get to really great parks and such in a few minutes. Must see places include Red Rock Canyon, Valley of Fire, and of course Hoover Dam. You can easily spend days on end at Red Rock and Valley of Fire: the Bighorn Sheep at VoF are only a few meters away at worst (makes for great photos) and one actually lets you touch it as it blocks the highway (he's like me...too old to breed, and senile). Come for the warmth and stay for the enjoyment. Get outta your RV and partake of the attractions. The staff treats you well and the price is great. They don't have cable but we get good antenna reception; they do provide wifi, but you spend a lot of time re-connecting the signal. We have good AT&T wireless service here. We came for a couple of days and stayed two weeks...only leaving to tour Death Valley. Can't say enough good things about this place.
