A very nice FamCamp. Friendly and helpful personnel to greet you, get you checked in and they escort you to your site. Fairly flat site, concrete, with good hookups. It is a little way out of town, but that can be a plus. Nice quiet park, with the wonderful sound of freedom which I like. Base has everything I could need, except maybe they could add diesel fuel at the Exchange Gas Station. Will be back again.

A very well maintained camp, all reviews cover everything well. Full hookups helped but 115 degrees will tax any AC...the pool at the rec center kept us cool. Suggest making reservations.

Others have addressed most everything. Plenty of sites available at the end of May. Very nice facilities. Wifi was very good and reliable. Satellite is iffy in many sites since the trees have grown and there is no cable. I could only get NBC and some Spanish stations OTA. Something important: there is a new PX gas station (even propane) right around the corner from the park towards the new housing area. Google Maps shows it. The office didn't mention it when I asked about gas - found it by accident. Very handy and accessible by most rigs if the station isn't busy (and it wasn't when we were there). Great park. USAF does it right.

A prime location, only twenty minutes to the strip, $22 a night for full hook up.  We made a reservation a knew only a water and electric site was available and that we would be put on the wait list for a full hook up.  Found out we wouldn't be put on the wait list until after check in despite what we were told when making the reservation. The water and electric sites are around a circle but you are perpendicular to the circle and either have your door to the road or have to run your power and water under the RV when connecting, the worst circular setup I have seen.  Check in was a long process (20 minutes) because the woman at the counter was somewhat new and not sure how to input the stay.  We also were told we had to have exact change when paying cash because they couldn't make change after 4:00 pm (it was 4:05).  We were put on the full hook up waiting list and told only a couple people were ahead of us.  The next day when I went to the office I was told we were actually fifth on the list, the next day I was told I was eighth, and I talked to the same person two days in a row.  No one at the front desk can apparently read the waiting list, so ask for Charlie, he's the retired RMC that makes the reservations.  If you wind up in a partial hook up site, be sure to ask about the dump wagons, we didn't find out they were available until after moving to a full hook up site and the woman at the office stated they sometimes "forget" to tell people.  After five days we were called about moving to a full hook up, which we did right away.  What a night and day difference.  Huge sites, easy to back into with a parking space for your vehicle.  Water and electric were good, WiFi was ok, but we still needed to use our Hotspot at times.  There is considerable jet noise, Reveille goes down at 5:30 and if you are in circle three you will hear the kids on the playground of the child development center by 7:30.  If you can get into a full hook up site, it is definitely worth the $22 a night.  The laundry rooms, two, are $.75 a load but could have more washers and dryers.  Showers work, but need some upkeep.  This is a great place to enjoy Las Vegas from.  You will have to leave the RV park side of base, then enter another gate to visit the exchange and commissary then the same getting back.  Its inconvenient having to keep going through busy gates and sitting at traffic lights for such a short trip.  We plan on returning in the fall.

Extremely professional & friendly staff!  The wifi signal was not the best, but better than most RV Parks!  The main office provided free computer access.  The park and facilities are meticulously maintained.  Only one of two shower stalls were functional!  Daily bags of ice are provided free of charge!  On this particular visit I experienced a dead battery and was unable to get my rig on the road!  The office staff went so far beyond the call of duty that I had to offer to pay for their time and service!  The RV park maintenance staff helped me assess the issue and provided a battery charged pack to attempt to crank the starter battery into action.  After several attempts the office provided contact numbers for reliable resources within the area. I was able to locate and arrange the delivery and installation for two new series 31 batteries!  The check out time was listed at 11am.  I wasn't unable to solve my situation until 1630.  The staff would not accept any monetary compensation for their time or services!  The very least I can do is to pass on my story of gratitude and appreciation for their help and consideration. I received service fit for a king for just $16 a day!  So I would highly recommend this location for anyone considering a Las Vegas visit!

15 NOV 15 - 29 MAR 16

We have staying at Desert Eagle RV Park for several years. They seem to continue to have a problem with reservations. Even if you reserve 6 months out, there is no guarantee you will get a spot in the regular spots and might end up in the “wagon wheels”. I am sure part of this is because the campground is so popular and some campers making reservations and not showing up. The regular parking spots are spacious, level and concrete. The WiFi, was better this year but I attribute that to us being right besides an antenna. There were still times it wasn't available or would kick you off line. Very aggravating when you are trying to handle communication (ie: bills). Most all of the staff are very personable. There are lots to do at the base, but you have to go across the street to the other side of the base. There is a local RV repair guy and RV wash that IMO does a super job. LP is available every Tuesday. A real complaint of mine is that this year some Command Staff IDIOT decided that anyone on a bicycle needs a helmet. Give me a break. I commend youngsters being required to wear one, but if I want my senile brains scattered on the sidewalk, it should be my decision! That being said, this is a fantastic place to be. Great weather, things to do in town, scenery and aircraft abound. We look forward to returning again. This is our favorite winter hiding place.

Desert Eagle is definitely on our short list of top military campgrounds. Staff is enthusiastic, competent, and friendly. FHU sites are spacious, albeit unconventionally laid out in circles. Sewer hookups are a bit of a stretch as we needed BOTH extensions. Camp WiFi worked very well and free ice was a nice amenity. We will definitely stay here again.

Have stayed at this famcamp many times and it has improved over the years.  We do like it and keep coming back.  It is easy to get in and out.  Some sites are highly desirable and others are less so, especially the original RV sites (sort of a circle the wagons layout).  The better sites are located where the old mobile home park was located.  WiFi can be spotty depending on your location in the park.  We have been in sites where it works great.  The staff try to be helpful (but sometimes get confused easily).  They do keep the office open late.  In one of our previous visits the staff mentioned there is thought of expanding the park and sounded like some great plans.

This RV park has very nice, extra long paved pull thru sites with paved access roads. The hookups were very good and the WiFi connections were also good. There is full recycling facilities within the RV park. There is a nice sized commissary and Px across Las Vegas Blvd (on the other side of Nellis AFB). The staff were very helpful but I found it inappropriate that at least one of the staff wore his political beliefs on his shirt (literally).

Great staff & FAMCAMP. We were there from 15JUL15 - 19JUL15 & the temperature didn't get below 100. The campground is close to those dens of ill repute (I visited as many as I could)& walked away a winner! The facilities were close by & the sites were well kept. Easy in & out. We stayed in a class 'A' motor home.

Really nice FamCamp and ran professionally. Provided base map, local information, sightseeing info. Escorted to our site and asked if we needed any help setting up. Fenced in dog park with shade and water. Fitness track, minimart, 2 laundry/bath house facilities close by. Some shade trees, level concrete sites, full hook ups, adequate water pressure. Wifi worked well for a FamCamp. Check the weather closely as it was 100+ during our stay.

This was our 3rd stay here and is on our list of favorites for value, location and friendliness. Our preferred area is Circle 1 as we meet up with friends and have several outdoor get togethers. We made our reservations 6 mos in advance and upon arrival were put in the wagon wheel across from office for several days before moving to circle 1. A disappointment at first, but not that bad as we had hookups. We will definitely return next year. Wi-fi works ok and facilities clean. Park sponsored a successful potluck get together for breakfast one day. Walking areas good. A good convenience is propane delivery to site and mobile wash. The wash is $2 ft and $15 extra for roof..a good deal..we have 32ft MH so $64 plus $15 well worth the cost. Amy and John Stanton

This is our 2nd year staying at Desert Eagle. We really like the park. It is well kept, and spacious. Most of the staff are very friendly. The WiFi was much better this year. It is somewhat slow and you do get kicked off occasionally BUT it did work. This year we were stuck between two permanent party trailers with children. Adding insult to injury, we were next to the playground. NOT the best location. There ARE some things that could be better, but a LOT that are not. I believe this would be a 5-star campground if they had a pool. It would be nice if they got their proposed expansion completed, but I’m not holding my breath.

May 2013-31 Mar 2014

As a former host from May,2013 thru Mar,2014, I feel it necessary to clarify some of the comments recently made about the park. Larry, I hope there is someway this information may be saved for future reference. 1. Because reservations may be made 6 mos. in advance and the stay for 6 mos. the park is very popular from September thru May for full-timers. The reservation system is similar to a hotel system in that reservations are booked for a site based on arrival date and length of stay. Additional requests (i.e. pull thru, shade, close to bath house) are accommodated if possible. 2. As the grid fills up, it becomes harder to move people in the park and retain the integrity of the system. A guest making a reservation in April for arrival in September will have priority over a guest making a reservation in June for September. A walk-in with no reservation will have to take whatever is available based on the length of stay. If a full hook-up is available for the entire length of stay, this will be accommodated however, the guest may have to start out in a partial until a full hook-up is available. Guests are told this at check-in and given the option of staying where they are parked or getting on the waiting list for a full hook-up for the rest of their stay. The reverse may also be true. If a guest sees an open site and wants to move, it may be for only a day or two because a guest with a prior reservation has not arrived yet. 3. The much anticipated expansion of the park has been pushed back again by the FSS Squadron due to funding issues. The park manager, Randy Peck, works very hard to keep the Wi-Fi service in good order. Many guests violate the instructions handed out at check-in and stream videos, music, etc. contrary to the wi-fi use rules. On a personal note, I find it very paradoxical that many guests complain about the $22 full hook-up fee while driving $100,000 and up rigs. A hotel stay in the Las Vegas area is $40 or more a night and that's a fleabag place. Parks like Del Mar, Seal Beach, Admiral Baker, etc. are $35 to $50 a night. Desert Eagle is one of the better managed RV parks in the military system. In my opinion, as a former host, the park should change to first come, first serve and quit taking reservations much like Davis-Monthan but that will never happen I'm sure.

November 24 - December 1, 2014

This used to be a GREAT park. It has steadily gone down hill over the years. About 2 years ago, they raised their prices by a dollar per night to provide better wifi. The current wifi SUCKS! If one can log into it, it comes and goes - and I am parked right next to an antenna. I have been complaining about the wifi for 2 years and have not heard anything in response - thus the low overall experience and value scores. The staff (workers, not managers) are FANTASTIC. One gentleman was ashamed to put my coach into a non-full hookup site. I was offered a full hookup after 4 days, but did not want to pick everything to move - I would guess most of the hosts have NEVER had to move a rig after several days staying in one spot. The restrooms were great (in 1950). But now they are at the bottom of the barrel. Concrete floors, no heat and the walls are only 3/4 height walls and when the door gets opened those taking a shower are able to be seen by everyone outside the building. At one time they were going to expand the full hookup service in this park - WHAT HAPPENED?? The employees take one whole wheel, then the long term folks take up two whole wheels, that leaves only one wheel for those staying a month or less. Not conducive to frequent traveling. Current park users are also getting lazy about picking up after their pets. I have picked up more poop than can be generated by 4 dogs, but I do want to travel with my "babies" so I keep cleaning up after the lazy folks. Not sure where the PCS folks stay, I see very few of them. My rig opens directly on the road, can't use my awning, cars and trucks continually go by faster than the posted speed limit and the dust stirred up by those vehicles is constantly in the air. So much for asthmatics. There is no control of any of the given park rules other than the number of pets allowed.

20 November 2014 - 3 December 2014

The way the camp ground is laid out unless you spend more than 1 month here they separate the spots that made me feel like we weren't really welcomed. Had to park what I consider backwards so I didn't open the door into the street. No lights and when the sunsets at 1630 it makes it kind of hard to get around. All the short term people are put in the area that is only opened from Sep - May which doesn't have any shade or sewer. The people that stay long term get the shady spots and sewer? The golf course is a real nice layout, but, is not ran very well. Lots of geese poop on the tee boxes, no marshalls to keep play moving, more expensive than most military courses I have played.

Nov: 12, 13, 2014

Date visited: Nov 12, 13, 2014. We stayed in space 106, which is referred to as a wagon wheel, No street lighting, no wifi hookups, I had to physically crawl underneath my travel trailer to hook up my sewer hose, no picnic table, very small spaces, If I had parked with my left side next to the utilities, I would have stepped into the street when opening my door. I asked the host upon arrival for a back in space, The host asked, how long I was staying, I said 4 days, The host ignored my request and assigned me to space 106 in the wagon wheel. It seems to me the assignment of spaces depend on the length of stay not on available sites. The is discrimination, Our campgrounds were not set up for permanent stays, but Nellis Famcamp goes by their own rules, I had to pay the same price as those who stayed in the new section with nice back ins and pull thrus, with outside lighting and wifi. The other incredible thing I found was after being assigned to the terrible site 106, I decided to stay only 1 day not 2 as I had paid for. I asked for a credit on my card, but I was told, the policy is no refunds unless there are extreme circumstances, A crummy site does not qualify. I stayed at Fiddlers Cove(CA) and decided to leave early, no problem, my card was credited with just the time I had stayed. Overall, I have stayed at over 40 military campgrounds, and this was my most miserable experience.

One of the nicer military RV parks we have stayed in anywhere. Good location for visiting the area. Outstanding staff. Hey, they even give you one bag of ice free everyday! WiFi worked great most of the time but slows down in early evening. Probably a lot of streaming going on. We will stay again for sure.

Great location and what has to be the largest sites in all the military campgrounds. Nice easy drive to the campground from an easy access gate. Staff super efficient and helpful (even made a copy of our completed log and updated the address info). Nice walk around the spokes. Looks like the plans for expansion will add a number of new FHU sites - if it gets off the ground. WiFi is a bit strange to get used to but works rather well. Would certainly stay there again if - when we ever get west again.

One of the best military fam camps. A great and friendly staff with all the answers. Large level paved sites with loads of space between site, most sites are shaded and lots of room for getting into and out of the site. Very clean and neat. Super level walking trail. Highly recommended.
