Thousand Trails Las Vegas RV Resort is in a great location for enjoying the numerous activities available around the area. Situated just five miles from The Strip and five miles from the Fremont Street Experience, this campground is a great option for a home base. We stayed at Thousand Trails Las Vegas RV Resort for seven nights in February 2020. We were visiting family in the area and appreciate having this Thousand Trails property to make use of during our regular visits.
The RV park is located on the east side of Las Vegas on Boulder Highway just off I-515. Many navigation systems will direct you to take the Boulder Highway exit which will require you to make a U-turn on a 6-lane highway without a traffic light. If you’re uncomfortable with this idea, consider taking the Flamingo Road exit off I-515. Upon exiting, take Flamingo Road east and turn left on Boulder Highway for very easy access to Thousand Trails Las Vegas RV Resort.
The best thing about Thousand Trails Las Vegas RV Resort is it’s proximity to Vegas action and adventures in the surrounding area. The Strip and Fremont Street are easily accessible via the Vegas transit system or Uber/Lyft/taxi. There are also a few local casinos within walking distance of the park.
In addition to the typical Vegas city activities, Thousand Trails Las Vegas RV Resort is centrally located to a range of adventures around the Vegas region. There are convenient scenic drives to take in the desert vistas and hiking opportunities at Mt. Charleston, Red Rock Canyon, and Spring Mountain Ranch State Park. Hoover Dam is an engineering marvel, and relaxing on the water at Lake Mead is a great way to beat the heat if you’re there in the summer.
All of this convenience to great activities does come at a price. The layout of the park is extremely tight, and the sites are the smallest we’ve seen in the Thousand Trails network. The sites are all gravel, very level, and kept clean. There’s a mix of 30 and 50 amp electric service, and all sites have water and sewer. The vast majority of sites are back-in sites, and while they are tightly spaced, it’s possible for big rigs to get parked. Don’t plan on hanging around and relaxing outdoors at your site, though, due to the tight quarters and regular noise from air traffic.
The amenities are very limited. There’s a small pool and hot tub, a clean club house with WiFi, two dog parks (one fenced), and 3 bath houses with laundry facilities in each. The bath houses are very cramped and showers are not configured with a separate dressing area. Two of the laundry machines were out of order during our stay. There are no playgrounds for children, and two horseshoe pits are provided. Dumpsters are placed throughout the park for convenience; however, they were frequently over full.
All in all, we rate Thousand Trails Las Vegas RV Resort a “C” in the RV Park category. Even though there are significant limitations in the park amenities and small sites, the park is convenient to all the Vegas action and regional activities.
