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.

Great campground and facilities. The folks working here are great and keep the place cleaned up nicely. The folks staying long term do need to police their areas a little better, but overall, not as bad as others we have visited. Sites are level and the power grid is good (it was 105-110 and I am sure everyone had their AC running like a champ). We took advantage of having our travel trailer washed at our site from a local vendor (ad is on the campground map). We just notified the office they were coming out and that was all. Nice dog area near the office, with grass. There were also a surprisingly large amount of shade trees at some of the sites. We were in site 2, it was nice and shaded in the morning and then the trailer shaded the front nicely in the evening. At $22/night, no one can complain. It is about 30 minutes to the strip and the commissary and BX are on the airfield side of the base.

I would take all the positive things from all the other reviews. I couldn’t find much wrong with the area at all, but, I'm sure not a lover of the desert. We called six months in advance to make our reservations. We arrived early in the day and had three coaches ahead of us, both of them much smaller (class B and small A), both of them received large pull thru sites and they stuck our 43’ in a back-in with line pole at one corner and the guide wire there too. I noticed the weeks we were there they seemed to take a lot of the big rigs and put in back-in sites and small rigs in pull thru. I would recommend insisting on a pull thru if you have a big rig towing a vehicle. The rest rooms are clean but getting a bit dated. The washers are .75 and same for the dryers. WiFi was good with a very strong signal for where we were. The staff has been planting more and more trees and each tree has its own sprinkler, turning on every night. The campground is looking for suggestions for improvements for the expansion. Over all it was a good stay and if I had to travel back this way again it would be a solid choice.

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.
