This RV park has very nice, extra long paved pull thru sites with paved access roads. The hookups were very good and the WiFi connections were also good. There is full recycling facilities within the RV park. There is a nice sized commissary and Px across Las Vegas Blvd (on the other side of Nellis AFB). The staff were very helpful but I found it inappropriate that at least one of the staff wore his political beliefs on his shirt (literally).
Really nice FamCamp and ran professionally. Provided base map, local information, sightseeing info. Escorted to our site and asked if we needed any help setting up. Fenced in dog park with shade and water. Fitness track, minimart, 2 laundry/bath house facilities close by. Some shade trees, level concrete sites, full hook ups, adequate water pressure. Wifi worked well for a FamCamp. Check the weather closely as it was 100+ during our stay.

This is our 2nd year staying at Desert Eagle. We really like the park. It is well kept, and spacious. Most of the staff are very friendly. The WiFi was much better this year. It is somewhat slow and you do get kicked off occasionally BUT it did work. This year we were stuck between two permanent party trailers with children. Adding insult to injury, we were next to the playground. NOT the best location. There ARE some things that could be better, but a LOT that are not. I believe this would be a 5-star campground if they had a pool. It would be nice if they got their proposed expansion completed, but I’m not holding my breath.

As a former host from May,2013 thru Mar,2014, I feel it necessary to clarify some of the comments recently made about the park. Larry, I hope there is someway this information may be saved for future reference. 1. Because reservations may be made 6 mos. in advance and the stay for 6 mos. the park is very popular from September thru May for full-timers. The reservation system is similar to a hotel system in that reservations are booked for a site based on arrival date and length of stay. Additional requests (i.e. pull thru, shade, close to bath house) are accommodated if possible. 2. As the grid fills up, it becomes harder to move people in the park and retain the integrity of the system. A guest making a reservation in April for arrival in September will have priority over a guest making a reservation in June for September. A walk-in with no reservation will have to take whatever is available based on the length of stay. If a full hook-up is available for the entire length of stay, this will be accommodated however, the guest may have to start out in a partial until a full hook-up is available. Guests are told this at check-in and given the option of staying where they are parked or getting on the waiting list for a full hook-up for the rest of their stay. The reverse may also be true. If a guest sees an open site and wants to move, it may be for only a day or two because a guest with a prior reservation has not arrived yet. 3. The much anticipated expansion of the park has been pushed back again by the FSS Squadron due to funding issues. The park manager, Randy Peck, works very hard to keep the Wi-Fi service in good order. Many guests violate the instructions handed out at check-in and stream videos, music, etc. contrary to the wi-fi use rules. On a personal note, I find it very paradoxical that many guests complain about the $22 full hook-up fee while driving $100,000 and up rigs. A hotel stay in the Las Vegas area is $40 or more a night and that's a fleabag place. Parks like Del Mar, Seal Beach, Admiral Baker, etc. are $35 to $50 a night. Desert Eagle is one of the better managed RV parks in the military system. In my opinion, as a former host, the park should change to first come, first serve and quit taking reservations much like Davis-Monthan but that will never happen I'm sure.

I would take all the positive things from all the other reviews. I couldn’t find much wrong with the area at all, but, I'm sure not a lover of the desert. We called six months in advance to make our reservations. We arrived early in the day and had three coaches ahead of us, both of them much smaller (class B and small A), both of them received large pull thru sites and they stuck our 43’ in a back-in with line pole at one corner and the guide wire there too. I noticed the weeks we were there they seemed to take a lot of the big rigs and put in back-in sites and small rigs in pull thru. I would recommend insisting on a pull thru if you have a big rig towing a vehicle. The rest rooms are clean but getting a bit dated. The washers are .75 and same for the dryers. WiFi was good with a very strong signal for where we were. The staff has been planting more and more trees and each tree has its own sprinkler, turning on every night. The campground is looking for suggestions for improvements for the expansion. Over all it was a good stay and if I had to travel back this way again it would be a solid choice.

We had a great time at Desert Eagle Campground. It is laid out very nicely. Large campsites and great water pressure. The staff is friendly. If you love aviation, this is the place to be. LOTS of jet activity, especially during Red Flag games. Thunderbirds are based here and they love to do fly-bys coming back from training. It is located close to Vegas but still far enough away. I have one HUGE complaint. The Wi-Fi is terrible. I could never get online to do anything. I could connect but it is so slooooow, I could not complete anything. When asked, they always said, they were working on it. There is NO discount for extended stays. We look forward to coming back again this fall, parking closer to a Wi-Fi antenna.

Stayed here the last night of our 23-day trip. Plenty of spaces available, we had a nice pull through spot with full hook-ups in a quiet location. Friendly and helpful hosts and staff made sure we found and got properly situated on our site (the park layout can be a bit confusing...). We will definitely stay here again. Traveling in a Motorhome.

Our overall experience was great. The host was very helpful and the campgrounds were very well maintained. Lots of space between sites. For the price add cable or at least wifi and this place would be a 5 star place.
I had a similar problem with Dee. I called and made two reservations; one over Thanksgiving and one for over a month in February that extended into March. I told her I wanted a full hook up site for both reservations and was promised I would get one although I might have to move during the second stay due to being full for the NASCAR races going on. I was promised a e-mail confirmation that I never got. The address on file was wrong and I gave Dee my new address. When I arrived I was told there were no full hook up sites and when I asked about my reservation in February it was only for 7 nights even though the intake card had the extended stay days written on it. Additionally, Dee never changed my address information because when my receipt was printed it still had the old address information on it. Although the first visit was the middle of November, the welcome packet I received was full of October happenings. It appears they are too content with the money they are making to take care of the customers who provide for their jobs. I gave the Cleanliness/Hospitality a one for the simple reason for the way my reservations were mishandled. I talked to the individual who registered ahead of me and they had the same problems with their reservations - not getting what they were promised.

Outstanding service from the staff. Big rigs be careful doing the whoop-t-do getting in the gate. Reservations are important here so make them early.

One of the best facilities I've been at. You get a pre-setup briefing, a folder with extensive information and a golf cart "follow me" to the site and the host even helps you get your rig in the site. Spacious. Your neighbors are at least 50 feet from your rig. Pet friendly. There is a walking ring around the entire park with at least 6 stands to pick up poop bags and trash cans. There is also a very large fenced in dog walk area with water for the pups. A number of overflow sites and even a storage facility if you need it. The staff is great. Incredible amount of information in the office. Scheduled social events around Nellis and the strip. The only downside is there is no CATV, and the WiFi struggles during the middle of the day. Got me a Sprint aircard to take care of the wifi issue since I've had problems at each facility I've visited over this 3K mile trip. A satellite dish is next when we get home. We are coming back across country over the holidays to stay here again. The Best!

One of the nicest parks we have stayed at, the only detractor was beyond their control, the weather (almost 65mph wind gusts). Loc: Across from the main base, near housing, not much around it. Clean/Hosp: Very friendly staff, grounds although gravel/dirt, very clean even with the wind. Amn/Fac: Nice walking trails, great dog play area and the base has full facilities along with a very nice all weather surface jogging trail. Value: A very good deal for a resort town, stayed at another civilian park with a group (a resort park) that was quite a bit more for not much more (a pool). We will stay here again.
26 FEB - 1 MAR 2010
We stayed here again for NASCAR weekend at Las Vegas Motor Speedway and our experience was outstanding. We were assigned a great spot, the hosts were johnny on the spot for anything we needed (as usual) and the park was absolutely spotless. The only drawback is no cable TV, other than that, just a great place. One other thing, they won't take reservations more than 6 months out, but I found even when I call the exact day, they are nearly full up, mostly with snowbirds and homesteaders.

We visited in a motorhome and the cost is now $20. When you enter on Range Road, make an immediate right into a short entrance road that will make a 180 degree turn to lead you to back to the Guard's Shack to show ID's. The staff was excellent and very organized, probably the best we've seen. We are on the outside of the wagon-wheel (#63) and the site is spacious. By luck, we are facing generally north which means; morning sun on the patio, and the patio is shaded by the rig from the HOT afternoon sun. We enjoyed biking the "Historic Railroad Trail" in Lake Mead NRA to Hoover Dam. We enjoyed the LV Strip one afternoon and the "free" self parking at many of the casinos (we used Treasure Island). Also the "Thunderbird Museum" is here on base. No cable, free wi-fi was weak and often dropped out. Verizon cell and data were good. We would return...

First the sites. Original plans for the circles where I am was for four rigs. They are putting eight on each circle. Because of this, some of us have our door opening right onto the road, so can't sit outside there. The others have doors opening toward the middle of the circle. Inside each circle there are four "patios" with a picnic table. So unless you are one of the rigs with a door opening into the circle, you don't have one. Outdoor cooking is to be in provided grills or your own. No provided grills in the circle and again, unless you are facing in, you don't have a place to have a grill, and no picnic table. If you are to share the picnic tables, then the other campers should be told that. In the circle I am in, one of the inward facing is a motor home with a bunch of junk piled against it and they have a small child and have rigged a swing from the tree next to the picnic table. Personal items were all over the picnic table and seats. Another table is also covered with personal items and bicycles leaning against it. I measured and I have 44 inches to the rig behind me and 74 inches to one in front. There is no place next to your rig to park so you have to park across the street which is not really a big problem. Most of the sites that are not on these circles are very large. There is at least 25 feet between them and they have nice concrete patios and grill. The showers and restrooms were very neat and clean. As stated before, they only had half walls between them and no place to hang clothes or towels except in the shower enclosure with you. The staff was very friendly and helpful and check in was very easy. There is a nice trail that goes around the park (about 3/4 mile) for walking or biking. It is a good place for short term in you are just passing through or sightseeing in the area. It is not that far from downtown Las Vegas, if you are into gaming and shows. It is about a 2 1/2 to 3 hours drive to Death Valley and about an hours to Hoover Dam. I feel the $18 a night is high for the tight circles and lack of the picnic tables and grills, but not that bad for the large sites. Because of weather concerns, I asked to extend my stay by a day and it was done. Again staff was friendly and helpful.
