Don’t let the lights of Sin City blind you to surrounding natural wonders in almost every direction.
Las Vegas is a popular stopover for RVers on their way to or from the Grand Canyon, but that’s not the only outdoor attraction worth exploring. Southern Nevada’s rugged landscape of red rock formations is one of the region’s most impressive sights, which you can discover at Valley of Fire State Park and Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area. Alternatively, cool off at Hoover Dam–created Lake Mead, which has a boat launch and offers fishing, swimming, and water sports, or check out Clark County Wetlands Park, home to birdwatching, a nature center, and walking trails. In the land of over-the-top hotels, you can expect RV parks and resorts in the same vein. Many have pools and activities, and some are attached to casinos. You can also find RV parks near Lake Mead and in the town of Pahrump, on the way to Death Valley National Park.
