Guess I'm an outlier...I didn't find the new sites appealing at all. The are too narrow and too close for comfort. I had to park my truck at an angle to avoid hitting the neighbors sewer hose as well as the living room slide on my 5th wheel. Pulled in the passenger side mirror to give myself a little more room to get around the truck as well. Also had the truck's rear sitting about a foot into the road. One of the hosts said longbed trucks have issues with the parking spaces at the sites. Had a site in the 190 row. Park's wifi signal was too weak to work and my Verizon jetpack had weak signal, too. At least the sites and interior roads were easy enough to maneuver around. One positive thing is the price. I wouldn't be surprised if the price goes up in a year or 2. If we had been in the old sites, now called "Premium sites", my ratings would likely be higher. Those sites are huge and offer more privacy. The new sites remind me of a typical RV park that crams RVs together to maximize occupancy. Would likely stay in the new sites again for an overnight or 2, but not for anything longer. This park is probably in the bottom 3 of Fam Camps I have stayed in.

What a great RV park. We have stayed at many FamCamps across the country but, this one is by far one of the nicest; ranks right up there with Peregrine Pines at the Air Force Academy. Super friendly staff and really easy check in, appreciated the "follow-me" cart to our site (#16). The site we were given is HUGE and easily accommodated our 45' 5ver and 20' F450. Great amenities for the kid and the dog. Super easy to get to Las Vegas for a show and Hoover Dam. Will be back for sure.

My wife and I stayed at Desert Eagle Campgrounds for 4 days in April 2022. Check in was easy, but time consuming because of Covid restrictions. The campground staff and supervisor were friendly and very helpful. The camp site was big on a concrete pad. The restrooms were very clean. Laundry facilities were available. We were traveling in a modified camper van. If we go back to Las Vegas area, we will stay here again. Thank you Desert Eagle

This is our second long term (for us long term is more than a month) stay at Desert Eagle. It is a great park - especially in the wagon wheel section. There is so much room in the wagon wheels that it is very comfortable, and you don't feel watched by close neighbors. There is no grass to mow, no flower gardens to keep up, no edging to be done - just a lot of gravel and sand. The sites are concrete and the grounds are gravel and sand. Sites are level and utilities are placed well and work good. T-Mobile gets excellent signal and almost any site is satellite friendly. There are a few exceptions but not many. It can get really windy here. Also, the Air Force Thunderbirds home base here so you can see them practice once in awhile. We are not big fans of the desert and that is the only reason my review is not lacking in excitement. The base here is great. It's got a very large commissary and exchange. I'm sure, if we in the area again, we will come back.

Spent one night in the new pull thru sites, and was very happy. The original 'wagon-wheel' sections are perfect for those who stay for months, but the standard pull through we had in the new section is great for those who are just in town to go out 'on the town'. Woke up to reveille, drifted back off again, but an F-15 practicing 'close air support' soon there after, makes an effective snooze alarm. Definitely can't wait to stay for a month or two when we go full timing.

We had a nice site with everything we needed. cell service (t-mobile) was non existent however, no wifi or cable either. We enjoyed the cactus garden, bocce ball court, dog park & walking trail. Most of the campers seem to live/work there. In true AF fashion, the campground is unattractively situated between the solar farm and the fuel tanks. A bike ride will take you to the housing area overflow rv area, and that's it. The base is divided - this side is housing, the medical clinic and the campground (and the fuel tanks). The other side is base BX, Commissary, gas station, church, car wash, etc. At the time the office was closed (b/c of covid?) you weren't allowed in. No change machine in the laundry room.(why would they make it convenient?) FYI It was below freezing at nights in late December/Jan. Disconnect your water. we did each night had no problems.

Stopped by to talk to Rv park office. Didn’t have our Rv with us this trip visiting family. Office still closed to the condition Bravo(?) but a very nice young man came outside to talk w/ me. He expects normal ops by 1 Oct. The park is almost full now. All services and amenities mentioned in past reviews are still current. Website driving Directions are still current too. Call in early mornings for “ no show” info. Old wagon wheel spots are very pretty & large. The new area is the modern Rv “parking lot” design. Close and bare ground. The only thing I was surprised about was the tight turning required at the gate. I was surprised all those giant 5 wheelers could make it. But the park is full of them so I’m sure my 28’ tt can make it. Looking forward to returning to stay in park soon.

Another visit to this park. Once arrived at famcamp need to call for check-in, office is closed due to COVID. Our site this time was in the new section of the famcamp, site was level and concrete pad long enough. The sites are a bit close to each other. Overall this is a good place for a stop over. If staying long term might opt for the bit more expensive older sites with mature trees and space between sites. We do like this famcamp and usually have good luck in getting a reservation when needed. Wi-fi is usable.

This is one of our top 3 military campgrounds that we have visited. Luckily we were in the old section so we had plenty of room and even shade! The staff there is super friendly and it is a pretty quiet location. We have a video review above of this place. Highly recommend!

Not our first time here, but first in the new part. I had reservations that put me in a "wagon wheel", but they were able to find me a pull thru near the dog park, bath house and shower. this made for short walks with the pup. Overall we had a great time here. I did try to use the bath/shower, but could never get the hot water to come on, so back to the MH.(it was and had been pretty cold and breezy in the area).

Our third time staying here. Usually for just an overnight but this time we stayed a couple days to attend a football game. There are sites with some shade in the wagon wheels part. Pull thoughts and back ins. Good utilities. Bummer that the internet blocks connecting to WiFiRanger, it it is a strong signal. Did not use it much, as you have to pay for over 30 mi items. The highlight was the staff. They were very accommodating when we had an issue with out rig. They are very nice, helpful and friendly. OBTW, Papa John’s delivers to you site. Will stay here again when in the area. Thanks to the staff again for all the help.

This is our first visit to a military Famcamp and I think we have been ruined for all of the rest. We are at site 222 in the new section of the park. We are very close to the dog park, laundry, and our neighbors. The older section, wagon wheels, have wonderful trees and much more space. Our need to come here was weather-based so a last-minute reservation and we got what they had available. It is a new section so we have young trees and your normal stone/concrete site. The staff has been wonderful and friendly along with our fellow visitors. As for the base facilities, visited the Commissary for our grocery needs. They have a wonderful produce section and things are reasonably priced. The staff was helpful and friendly. The exchange is huge and exactly what you would expect. Overall our experience was outstanding. The Commander of Nellis AFB should be very proud of this facility. Even the security staff at the gate smiled. We will be spending time here again. Maybe an entire winter.

Caveat: COVID stays are always different (usually for the worse) than non-COVID stays. Site: Circle 4, Site 88. In that light, I'll start with the limited CONS of our recent stay at Desert Eagle. Most amenities and facilities were temporarily closed (presumably due to the virus) including restrooms and showers. This isn't normally an issue, but being in a public park without operational restrooms is much more limiting than being on BLM land without any restrooms. Add one poorly-timed toilet failure and we got pretty good at shooting across the highway to use the facilities on main post. WiFi was also an issue for us as it's only offered for a fee within the park. We appreciate that this is a cost center for the base, but plenty of RVers rely on that connectivity for daily support activities (work, paying bills, etc.) and may not always have mobile plans to fall back on. The PROS, however, definitely outweighed these slight inconvenience. The Desert Eagle is a clean park with new fixtures (pads, tables, etc.) and a layout that puts a good 30+ feet between rigs. The surrounding views aren't anything to write home about, but the park addresses that with some well-placed foliage and a good overall design. Neighboring campers were quiet and respectful (as expected on base), and the kids loved the free airshows that occur throughout the business day. That latter bit might be a con for some, but as an aviator myself I'm always game for a bit of plane watching. No night flights while we were there, which may have crossed a line when it comes to bedding smaller kids. Lastly, the Vegas strip is a mere 10-15 minutes away, which in other times would have made for quick access to all sorts of fun. In our case we simply used the proximity to order dinner from some of our favorite restaurants for a couple nights. Overall very happy we visited Desert Eagle and looking forward to our next pass through!

We stayed here on our way to AZ for the winter. The phone is always answered. Just to let you know the GPS from Hurricane Utah guides you the wrong way to Range Road. If you are coming from the north on Hwy 15 to the base exit 604 (Las Vegas Blvd N). When we followed the GPS we got stuck on Range Road that is closed as the entrance after we were told to use this road, its a very bad section that was being redone and behind the Amazon Warehouses. We called and a very nice person guided us all the way to the base. Outstanding Customer service. The base has some new RV Pads, but you are sandwiched in like sardines. The old section is only for Active Duty from what we were told. The spaces are huge. The WiFi in the new section works great. The bathrooms are beautiful and clean we did not use them. Due to Covid-19 you pull up in a parking lot and call and you do all your check in over the phone. We would stay here again. This is by far the best Air Force RV park that we have been at. Most of the ones we have stayed at are very run down but this one is great!

We called the same day for a reservation - no problems. We just spent one night in a FHU pull-thru site in the old "wagon wheel" area. We met a host on the way in who showed us to our site. We called the next day to make payment. All went well. We didn't do anything and barely left the rig. We were just looking for a spot to spend the night and run the A/C. It was still above 100 degrees here. Nice visit, and will stay here again when needed.

We stayed at Desert Eagle from 6 to 27 Aug 2020. Aside from the oppressive heat (averaging 104 to 114 degrees) the park is very nice. We stayed in space 86 which is in the old loop section. The spaces are nicely spaced, so much so that there is enough room between them you could put another RV, which some money hunger parks do. The sites are all concrete with concrete patios as well. The loop sites have many trees and the shade they provided helped significantly with the heat. There is a walking path around all 4 of the loops with plenty of well stocked doggy bags and disposal bins for picking up after you dog. There is ample room to park you RV when you arrive for check in and maneuvering around the park is very easy even for the largest RV’s. The staff were very nice and a pleasure to interact with, they obviously enjoyed working there. The new section of the park is very nice as well; however they built the sites much to close together for my liking. There are no trees either (no shade) which exposes you to that hot Vegas sun all day. Even with the shade we had a hard time keeping the RV cool and the best we could do was the upper 80’s during the heat of the day. However, the evenings and nights were much cooler and the AC’s kept the RV nice and cool for sleeping. The best way to get to the RV park is through the N Las Vegas Blvd gate. However, use caution. Once through the gate there are large speed bumps and they have put the concrete barriers pretty close so squeezing a RV through them is tight to say the least. However, if you go slow and use caution it’s manageable. Once through just go to the first stop sign and turn left and follow the signs to the park. You’ll see the park as soon as you get through the gate. I would not recommend exiting the base through that gate with your RV. There barriers are even closer together and getting through is very tight. I watched a large 5th wheel go through and he only had a few inches clearance on either side. I wouldn’t risk it. You can drive through the housing area and exit onto E Craig Rd which will take you straight to I-15. Nellis is a very large base and is divided by North Las Vegas Blvd. The north side is mostly housing while the south side is where the commissary and BX are located. Due to COVID the base commander only allows retires to enter the south side on weekends. Evidently, we are not contagious on weekends. All this accomplished was to force all the local retirees to cram the BX and commissary on weekends along with all the active duty. Sorry but I cannot see the logic in this decision. That aside, we enjoyed out stay there and look forward to returning one day. It won’t be in the summer months though. If you’re planning a stay there and can pick you dates, I would recommend you not go in July, August or September. One sort of a downside is that Walmart and Costco are not close by. Getting to them is about a 10-mile drive through the city. There was a Walmart right outside the main gate, but it was boarded up and abandoned from some reason. The base gas station does not sell diesel and fuel prices off base were a little high. The cheapest I found diesel was $2.49.9 a gallon. There is much to do in and around Vegas but the heat kept us from doing much. It was just too hot. All in all, Nellis is a really nice base and Desert Eagle a great RV park. If you get a chance go, you won’t regret it.

Stayed here 1 night while traveling from Phoenix, AZ to Idaho. Very easy check in and the staff allowed us to check in early. The staff guides you to your space in a golf cart. Spaces are level and all hookups work good. Very quiet (appeared that no fighter jets were in the air). Easy on/off from the Interstate 15. Will stay again. $26; good bargain. One note: the entry gate is a little awkward. You need to make a few tight turns but we made it in ok with our 32 foot travel trailer.
