The park itself is nice. Large spaces, plenty of room. Very well maintained as far as landscaping. The bathrooms/showers/laundry facility are immaculate. Downfalls are the park is littered with trash. Walmart bags in trees, clinging to the shrubbery. Some folks allow their dogs to yap endlessly. Camp hosts are nice enough, but they don’t follow the leash rules. Many times they let their dogs wander around with no leash. The worst part for us was the heat. We made the mistake of going in the summer. WiFi is terrible. Even if you have your own hotspot, it’s still hard to get a signal. The location of the base is in a very bad section of town. Use caution when venturing out after dark.

We visited Nellis in December and really enjoyed the legacy section of the campground. The sites are large with plenty of space on all sides. I don't think we'd have been happy in the newer section for longer than a night or two because they are much shorter and closer together. I think that section would really only be good for smaller campers and RVs. Although the facilities in the legacy section are older, they are clean and the cost of laundry was the cheapest so far. We also liked the location across from the main base. It was easy enough to get over there for the commissary and exchange.

The Park is very well maintained and the hosts do a great job. We put the mailing address into our GPS and it brought us almost to the gate. Great Commissary and BX. No Diesel, which is disappointing, because the closet is Pilot and if you know Pilot $$$. I did find Sinclair and a lot less. Clubs have good food and reasonable. The Strip is close but construction on 15 is big and expect delays. Vegas has great deals for active and retired. Free or reduced parking price. Also you can go to ITT on base for tickets at reduced prices. Go to the Paris hotel desk and show ID and they give you a card, good for life for all kinds of deals and free parking. We have a big duelly so it only cost $20 for up front parking. The Park Staff at the RV park will give you all sorts of information and the dog run is very nice. Thank you all

We were in the new section, so no WiFi available. The older section looked very nice with mature trees. Everyone was friendly and helpful. They bring you to your site, so no issue finding where you belong. If they had WiFi it would be a 5* Fam Camp.

Nice park, one of the better camping areas. Vin and Kathy provided excellent assistance. New sites all paved, In the process of adding WiFi and dog walk area. Best priced for location. Go Air Force, Aim High!

Another winter has come and gone. After staying at Desert Eagle for several winters, we see regulars now. The office staff is great. They do what they can to help out. The ice machine is installed and ice is available each day (woohoo). The NEW addition is finished. With that has come higher rates if you want to stay in the “old” clover leaf which I think is the best place to camp. Whoever designed the new addition should have their butt kicked. Looking at it, you can tell it was built for income only. The lots are SMALL and the parking for your car is next to non-existent. The WiFi is still hit and miss. In previous years, I don’t remember the weeds being as bad as they are this year, but I was told that the summer heat will take care of them. Still, for the money, it is the best around Vegas.

The staff are all great! The overall facility is top notch! My only complaint is, why didn't they make the at least a few of the new sites longer so those of us that are just staying the night would not have to disconnect our TV from the 5er. Of course we will be back!

This was only our second FamCamp we have visited, Edwards AFB FamCamp being the other one. This place is very very well kept. The premium pull thrus at the wagon wheel area are by far the best sites to reserve. They are long, roomy, and a good distance away from your neighbors all around. Full hook up pads, cement paved and very level. Desert landscaping is all around. You would have to purposely try in order to impose on your neighbor's site. Facilities are very well kept as well. The staff does a great job in keeping them clean, be it the laundry room or the combination shower/toilets. Speaking of the showers/toilets, they offer a good deal of privacy and very clean.

We stayed in the new section of the famcamp. Nice and new but much smaller than the old section. Parking next to RV with the slide out and the neighbor's slide out could not open the truck doors fully. There is an electrical issue with the new power pedestals of open grounds on the breakers. They worked on ours and another the same day and said they needed to check the others later. We would stay here again.

28 March - 1 April 2018

After over a month staying here I like the park but am confused about all the 5.0 reviews. I have stayed at least 10 military RV parks and this is definitely not the best. Positives: Older spots are roomy and very nice, staff is friendly, base amenities are close and generally good, You are in Vegas - good and bad! Negatives: If you like peace and quiet - forget it! The area has become very industrial, thus lots of commercial noise even after 10 PM. The emergency generator at the hospital is next to the older area and kicked in at 5 am one morning. The locals race up and down Craig and Las Vegas Blvd roads all night. The new sites are simply poorly designed, too tight and utilities in wrong location - so plan for a large truck to be parked within inches of your RV or trailer. Some are very hard to level so leveling is next to impossible. And since they are a fair amount of active duty with diesel trucks or muscle cars you will be woken up at 0600 every morning as they idle their vehicles for 30 minutes while they take a shower. The reservation system seems to be crazy - I have seen several people put into overflow spots when spots are open for days at a time. If you show up before noon you will probably sit in the registration parking till afternoon. They appear to not know who is leaving or coming till after they make their rounds. Seems to be no check out time. Large RV's are put in tiny spots while small RV's get large spots. No method to match sites to type of RV. With all that said if you want to come for a few days and hit Vegas and get out of here, good place to park for short periods. They should make 50% of the park first come and first serve and the old area reservations only. Would make more financial sense. If you want long term go somewhere else.

What a crack operation the Air Force has in this gem. The FamCamp recently opened up their new facilities allowing more of us to enjoy this RV park at a time. Cleanliness, friendliness, pet-friendly facilities, this camp has it all. And if you love jet noise you have hit the jackpot!!!!! I did not know this was home-base for the Thunderbirds. So we get treated to practices on a regular basis along with the other aircraft doing their training. Peaceful and quiet (when the aircraft are not airborne) the place is over-run with old retired farts! I'll bet half of them get woke up when taps comes over the base PA :) We stayed in the new section and for those who have been here and stayed in the original camp the new section is quite different. The old section has LARGE spaces with trees offering a modicum of privacy, not so for the new section. While the new section more resembles an RV sales lot with units shoulder to shoulder, when all spaces are occupied, you have enough room to be comfortable. Don't get me wrong, the new section is nice. Just don't compare it to the original spaces which are right beside the new section. All spaces have a nice level pad and the utilities were well placed and spaced apart. While each space has a sapling it will be several years before they begin to offer anything that even remotely provides shade, so summertime might get quite hot. If our travels ever bring us here again we will gladly stay.

We love this RV park: the RV spots are rather generous, the facilities are clean, the showers are great, laundry area is cramped but doable. Pet owners cleaned up after their dogs. People were mostly friendly. There were two workers in the office who were curt almost to the point of being rude. Maybe because of the holidays. We only gave three stars due to this rudeness. The facility was very clean! Close enough to all the sights. Even took a day trip to Death Valley.

Had not been here for about 10 years so was interested to see if there had been changes. Happy to report that staff are as friendly and helpful as ever and the famcamp is well maintained and looked as nice as it did 10 years ago. They were in the middle of construction of the new sites in June, but it was still easy to get to our site, especially as they have someone who will guide you to your site. We have pets and there are plenty of area to walk pets, and there is a dog park at the front end of the famcamp. Another plus for this famcamp is that a large VA facility is next door.

January 2 through January 20, 2018

This premier military RV park has gotten even better with the completion of their major expansion and modernization. The near doubling of full hook-up capacity makes getting into the park much more probable for the traveling active duty and retired service member...and the addition of two new bath houses, with laundries, support the added capacity. The prices have increased a few dollars but are in line with other military facilities and, as major benefit to those of us who travel in our RV's, the park now holds a handful of sites available for spontaneously arriving personnel. Randy and his staff do a great job in accommodating the needs of his guests, and the grounds are kept in remarkable shape by a cadre of volunteers. Check it out, is place is amazing!

I asked for a reservation on the 23rd of Dec for Jan 4th - the 15th. Wasn't a problem, got put in one of the new places just finished. They are much closer together than the older spots and all new vegetation, so no adult trees yet. The prices have been raised to $26 for a pull through, and their internet is hit and miss. We had a good time, and will come back. The place is spotless, and I didn't see any homesteaders.

First time here and loved it. Great site lots to do. Only down side is the internet. They have lots of towers in all the right places but the signal is so weak and drops so many times almost not worth using. I used my jet pack more than the camp internet. A little more care for the internet and this place would be perfect. With Vegas so close the internet is important as we were making reservations for shows and the connection dropped multiple times during the transaction. Base easy to get in and out of with my 40 foot Newmar and tow which was nice.

This is our 2nd stay at the Desert Eagle RV park at Nellis AFB. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay on both occasions. A very well run famcamp. No RV park is perfect, but I think most would agree the "legacy" section of the Desert Eagle RV Park presents one of the better military camping experiences in the country. The legacy section (100+ sites) contains huge, full-hook-up RV spaces that are easily 3000-4000 sq ft. in size. Each site contains a concrete pad, well-trimmed shade trees and borders a landscaped walking path. FWIW, all the partial hookup (electric/water), "wagon wheel" sites will be eliminated once the remaining 79 brand new RV sites are opened for use sometime in late 2017 or early 2018. We got to see a small portion of the new section that was completed during our stay. These new sites contain 44-46 ft. long, pull-thru, full-hookup sites with paved access, concrete pads, picnic table, bordered on each side with desert rock/gravel. There are also going be a number of new support buildings/facilities (2-3?) on site that will contain shower and laundry facilities. Spacing between most sites (except handicapped) is minimal---only a few feet wider than the picnic table. In my estimation, those with larger rigs are going to find parking space for their tow vehicles and toads minimal at best. Don't get me wrong, these brand-new 79 RV sites are going to be a very nice addition to the Desert Eagle RV park, however, they're not going to be the same camping experience one finds in the legacy section.

Sept 23 and Oct 5, 2017

This was the first time we have stayed at Nellis and we did so on our way to Montana and then again on our way back. It was eye opening! We have stayed at many Military Fam Camps throughout the US, and this was the best one yet. The staff were friendly, helpful, and notably proud of the facility with good reason. Although we only stayed one night each way, we both agreed that we will return again for a longer stay. Cant wait to see the new section open. We stayed in a 44ft motorhome and even though towing a full size pickup the space we were assigned both times was able to accommodate the full rig without having to unhook the towed. Truly a nice park. The nicest? Well we haven't been to all of them yet so we can't say, but it is certainly the nicest we have stayed at to date.

We were only able to stay here for 2 nights as the place seems to stay booked. Lots of people apparently stay here for several months at a time. We got one of the "Wagon Wheel" sites. We have a long toy hauler and could not open our back ramp, because each site has a large boulder or tree at the back of it to prevent you from backing in too far. Our neighbors looked as tho they were "homesteading" here - or maybe getting ready for a yard sale. In other words - pretty unkept sites. The office staff was super nice and very helpful. The laundry was clean. We'll try to stay here again in the future and hopefully we'll be able to get a site.

What a wonderful Military camp ground. They are adding another 70 sites which should be open in Nov 2017. The concrete pads are a great sizes. Only issue we had was with the smell of the water.
