Las Vegas and Overton, NV
« on: March 02, 2018, 07:43:59 PM »
I want to stay at the Valley Of Fire S.P. in Overton, NV. This is during spring break for Nevada schools, the week of March 26.  They do not take reservations so it is first come first served.  For those in the know, what are my chances of getting a spot?  If I can't get a spot and I have to go to Vegas, which RV park should I stay in so I don't have to drive very far, if any distance, to enjoy the night neon lights.

At all first come first serve campgrounds the only secret is to be there very early and keep on driving around until a site opens up.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

We like Las Vegas RV Resort. About 20 minutes from the strip.

Or you could boondock at Snowbird Mesa, free camping on BLM Bureau of Reclamation land just south of Overton and a short drive to Valley of Fire.   It's at the top of the first bluff as Highway 169 climbs out of the Overton valley.   You'll see other RVers camping there.

Is this driving thru the park or camping?  Also, I found no RV restrictions on their website.

Thanks

Dan is that a particular campground? Campendium says max 50ft and reviewers make reference to longer vehicles, there are a few folks with 31 and 32 ft vehicles and someone says you could get 45ft vehicle in.

Just left Valley of Fire, huge campers in hookup section... 42 feet no problem.

They do first come first serve which is great... we found site in non electric one night and moved over to electric and water... you need to be there early for site....  campground says Full.... ignore...they never take sign down...

Not true, I've had my 32' at Valley of Fire several times.
