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.

Staff was very friendly and helpful. Sites were well maintained however the "fulltime" campers need to do a better job of policing their areas.

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.

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.

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.

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
