As mentioned earlier in June, we stopped at Nellis AFB Desert Eagle Fam Camp in Las Vegas, NV on our way back through. We arrived after hours, but the staff called us during our drive to make sure they had everything ready for us. We arrived after office hours, but they had a packet which included a map with driving directions highlighted or drawn on the map to get us from the registration office to our new temporary home, Circle #1 Site #16. The packet included their request to ensure we stop by the office before 1000 the next morning to settle up on the bill. Second stay in less than a month...the staff here is awesome. They made us feel welcome during both visits. We have only stayed in the circles so far...and will ask for these spots whenever we come through this part of the country.

This park has grown since our last two visits (2013 and 2017 when we stayed for five days), but the staff is just as amazing. The dog park area was very much appreciated (in 2013 we didn't have our two GSD's with us, and by 2017 they had passed). We now have a Dutch Shepherd, and she loved being able get out for some needed running. We originally had a single night stay booked for our return trip from the Phoenix NASCAR race, but had a minor engineering casualty that made us stay a second night after repairs. Both spaces were in the original section of the park, but the staff shuffled to a second spot in a different 'wheel'. Water pressure was good, power was steady with good numbers and we had great Sprint and ATT coverage and data speeds (I didn't recall my speed test results but was able to play a few rounds of World of Warships waiting for the mobile mechanic). Our DISH worked flawlessly after getting clear line-of-sight around trees behind our first spot. The prices per night are such a great value - and definitely makes it worth the extra drive time to get 'into town'. We went out to eat at local restaurants along North Nellis Boulevard, and saw just how the area immediately outside the base has suffered economically. Many stores were shuttered for the first few miles, and though we felt safe the entire time, it brought home how we spent most of the time on prior trips to Las Vegas either on base, or at the Strip/Fremont Street areas. Definitely spend some of your dollars near the base to support local, family businesses (because the food is great!). We are looking forward to being able to spend a month here after we retire and can travel full time! The roar of F22's, F16's, the distinct sound of A-10's are enough to raise the spirits of this old squid, too!

Stayed two nights...we did not use the facilities, our coach is fully equipped. The pull through spots are very spacious with lots of landscape between us an closest neighbor...we had #76 in Circle #4. We will stop again on our way back through Las Vegas. The only negative was the speed bumps going in and out of the base at the gate, they need to be painted yellow so you see them before your coach bottoms out.

Stayed this time in the “old” ex-mobile home park section and liked it. Very long site with good level concrete pad to park on. Trees for shade, etc. We like Nellis and have stayed here plenty of times. Staff in office were very friendly and helpful. In the past have had off-on experiences but they are doing things right now. They even called us when it was looking like we might arrive after closing. A welcome package with site info was awaiting us. Wi-Fi isn’t real strong and can be very slow at times. It is still a free service even though the park map indicates a fee after 30 minutes of complimentary service. Select the Viasat service. Getting ready to go and dumping the black and gray tanks. Sewer line clogged. Thankfully was when doing the gray tank, line accepted all the black, otherwise would have been a yucky mess. Good thing I was keeping eye on line and caught just as it backed up. Told maintenance guys and sounded like this has been occurring. Could be because it is the older “ex-mobile home park” and lines aren’t new like in the newer section. Used the dump station on the way out. Considering the cost to stay at commercial parks, still think this is a good deal for us. We aren’t into the “resort” lifestyle. Not the cheapest military RV park we have stayed in but consider the price to be reasonable for what is provided and security of being on base. We will visit again in the near future.

We are a 45 foot motorhome towing a jeep. We stayed in the new sites. Narrow or tight is an understatement. I'm surprised that for a newly build section that they made the sites so narrow. For example, with out driver side slide open, our neighbor had to move his picnic table really close to his rig because there was not enough room for anybody to sit on the side closest to us. On the doorside because of where a bush was planted, perhaps 8 or 9 inches between the slide and the bush. While the sites are extremely narrow and a challenge for a big motorhome or 5th wheel, the interior roads are nice and wide and we saw several handicap access sites which were fairly roomy. There is decent wifi, although we were told that while it currently is free, it will eventually be a pay as you go. We got 5 bars on our Verizon phones, so would have simply used those if we had had to pay. The office staff is as nice as can be. I cannot say enough positive things about them. Washers and dryers are 75 cents a load. Commissary and Exchange are located across North Las Vegas Blvd on the other side of the base and are easy to get to. The office has both base maps and Las Vegas maps. We have 2 dogs so dog walking areas are always important to us. There is one fenced in area near the office and there are several paths in the older area where you can walk your dogs. A bit harder in the new area, but there is some gravel along the outside wall where pets can go. Also, there are plenty of dog waste stations with cans and bags scattered around the park. If we had stayed in the older section, I would have scored facilities higher and value and experience would have been 5.

Great place to stay. Easy to get to sites other than down town Las Vegas. Hover Dam and the West side of the Grand Canyon. We enjoyed our stay.

I am a retired DOD Civilian with a Department of the Army retired civilian ID card. Any retired Department of Army civilian can get an ID card that allows one to use military recreation facilities. Just visit a civilian personnel office where you retired or bring in proof of retirement to any other military civilian personnel office and apply for the card. I have used it on Air Force, Navy and Army Famcamps over the years. Now, I must say that I really enjoyed my stay at Nellis AFB Famcamp. We had attended a military reunion in Vegas and this was a great place to relax away from the Strip. The only facility we used was the laundromat which proved to be clean and easy to use. Also, the instructions to Nellis Famcamp were right on. However, I found that coming from Kingman, AZ you follow Highway 93 north changed name to I-11, then to I-515 to the I-15. Then use the instructions posted on this sight to Nellis. I did find that if it isn't a heavy traffic part of the day, I could exit I-515 going north and exit on North Las Vegas Blvd North and follow it to Nellis for about 5 miles. Yes, you would hit traffic lights, but the traffic was low and it was a straight shot to the Nellis Famcamp. The traffic on I-15 was hectic and not fun while towing a travel trailer to get to the Craig exit. Stay away from the I-15 on Friday through Sunday as that is the heaviest traffic scene, also during normal rush hours.

Clean, quite and can't say enough good things about the staff. This is a great park and the base has everything you could want plus the Thunderbird's museum. My wife and I had a great stay and plan on coming back. RD

We stayed for 78 days and were very pleased with the park. When we first arrived we were assigned site 180, which is in the 'new' section. The new section is tight, very tight. We didn't think that we could do 78 days in such cramped conditions so we asked to be moved to 103. Perfect! We were very comfortable and had plenty of room. There were people there that were in the new section for much longer than the 78 days we were there and I never heard a complaint from anyone about the cramped quarters. The bathrooms, laundry and showers were the cleanest I have ever seen. The staff was always friendly. They were installing the Wifi while we were there and were able to use it for the last week. It worked great - but, it will be a pay service when the installation is complete. As in most military famcamps, it is nicer than most commercial campgrounds, less expensive and safer. We enjoyed our stay at Desert Eagle and would go back.

Return for a few days before heading for home. Assigned a site in the “new” section of the park. This site was also good for us, easy pull through and hook-ups. In this site we were able to get very spotty wi-fi access at the RV. Did learn from the staff than the wi-fi is being expanded. We could see a “Desert Eagle Wifi” option with a very strong signal but that is still under installation and not open for connection just yet. This will be a great addition to the park. Park is busy with plenty of campers, yet still a number of vacancies. Nellis is making progress in becoming a very good park.

Yep, they did it. Had to install some sort of a valve in the water system for the entire FAMCAMP and some other facilities in the area. Shut off the water on a Friday evening and actual work was supposed to be completed by Saturday, including sanitizing the lines and flushing. Water sample then supposedly sent/taken(?) to State(?) County(?), someone, (no one can tell you who) but they don't work weekends. Water was supposed to be on by 6PM Wednesday. Of course it wasn't and the latest GUESS was maybe sometime Thursday, but of course no one has a clue. There is a water bowser near check in, but for 3-4 days there was only a 3" hose available and you had to go to the office to find that. No reduced rates, refunds, or even a reasonable explanation. Sorry about that. The office folks try but when no one keeps them informed there's nothing they can do. Obviously, no one in authority cares the least. Many people have gone elsewhere for the duration or have just forfeited their payments and left. Other issues as well. Although the FAMCAMP is on base it's located directly adjacent to the active runways and under the downwind so be prepared for constant extremely loud noise from 7AM on every weekday. So loud all conversation stops. But the posted quiet hours are until 8AM each morning. Bet that works out well for the tenters and those not using full hook ups but needing to use a generator for one reason or another. Overall recommendations, spend a few bucks more and go elsewhere. Doubtful we'll be back.

We stayed in the older section of this FamCamp. We normally are very happy with our experiences at a military FamCamp. However this stay was a disappointment. When we checked in I told the office our son was staying with us for three nights. When I reviewed my bill I notice I was charged extra for entire stay. Office told me no refunds. OK, only $14. On our second day here we were notified that the water would be turned off for five days. Why were we not informed of the scheduled water outage at check in? If we knew about it we would have gone elsewhere. Since we would not have FHUs for five days I asked about any discounts or refund. I was told no discounts or refunds. The scheduled water outage turned out to be six days instead of five. Our other problem was with getting our mail. We had a prescription sent here. For whatever reason the office rejected it and had it returned. We knew nothing about it being returned. We only found out about it be returned when we called the pharmacy. They verified they used the address of office required. We had packages delivered here without issue before they refused our prescription. The office personal here appear to be folks that actually stay here in the park and really are not qualified for this work. The older section could use some cleanup, maintenance and is starting to look very tired. Overall we are very disappointed with the lack of customer service at this FamCamp.

Boy what a big change to this RV park. Arrived for New Years and appeared to be a full house. Thankfully we had made reservations and welcome pack was waiting for us on our late arrival. The new sites are mostly well laid out for easy in & out and hook-ups. (However, noticed that some sites across the street have sewer connection far forward requiring a very long sewer hose, yuck.) Our site had a nice open area next to it but most do not and can be a little close to neighbors. No internet signal in our part of the park, needed to go to main office for connection (lowered my Amenities score due to this). Would have been great if this service were provided at the site. Overall: Nellis did a nice job. Side Note: Needed to wash the road salt and grim from Utah off the RV. Considered using the base coin operated car/RV wash facility. Neighbor said some folks him told the RV wash bay was difficult to get in and out of. We did a recon of the facility and looked ok to us. On wash day we found the bay pretty straight forward to drive into and worked just fine for us. We have a 36’ class A, maybe a larger rig would have trouble.

This was our second visit and need I say, this visit was OUTSTANDING. Our first visit was during one of the hottest times (112 degrees) in our rig. Much nice visit this time of the year. Can not overstate what an great facility and location. Crime on the Strip has spread out well beyond the strip now and it is so nice to have the safety of an armed guard at the front gate. They recently expanded and added a lot of new sites with their sites on more expansion and possibly a new “club house/office space”. You have to live with the hours of training flight, sometimes in the night but overall felt great to be here and we’ll certainly be back.

We've stayed here many times and have always been pleased with the consistency of professional service and outstanding facilities. Quick, friendly check-in and escort to our paved and level concrete pad in the old, now "premium" section, our preferred location. Lots of space between sites, some trees and shrubs, and no obstructions to TV satellites. Plenty of OTA TV channels and good Verizon cell/data. The park WiFi would not connect during our stay, not unusual now that everyone seems to streaming video. Plenty of the "sound of freedom" starting early on weekday mornings but relatively quiet on nights and weekends. Outside the base is a deteriorating neighborhood so off-base dining and shopping require a few miles of driving. Overall one of the best Famcamps in the system. We'll stay here again.

Popped down from Mesquite, NV for the weekend to get the rig ready for an extended trip. First time we've stayed here; will definitely stay again. Very nice and helpful staff. Hundreds of great sites. The older ones likely have more room and some shade but we didn't mind staying in the new area. Very clean showers and restroom facilities. Easy access on/off the highway. Base has great facilities. Very secure. Close to some great national and state parks (Zion, Bryce Canyon, Valley of Fire). Overall a great value. Thank you.

I"m not sure why there are a few negative reviews. We had planned to stay one night, but ended up staying a week. The office staff was nice and pleasant and gave us an information folder with maps. We didn't have any problems extending our stay, other than having to move sites. But this was partly due that we had friends coming in and we wanted to be near each other. The new sites are close together with no shade. We got lucky and ended up in shaded sites. The restrooms and laundry were very clean, but most of them are also new. The commissary and exchange are a good size. Yes, we had lots of the "Sound of Freedom" from the jets, but we actually enjoyed it. The pricing is currently very reasonable for this area - I hope they don't get greedy and raise them too soon. This is a large RV Park and was about 90% full when were here. We enjoyed our visit and would return when in the area.

The new sites are small and will leave you feeling trapped between your neighbors. The neighborhood around Nellis is terryfing and to get to anywhere somewhat safe or enjoyable, it will take a 30-40 minute drive. They have one dog park that everyone waits to take turns with their different sized dogs plus it is kind of unsanitary as not everyone picks up after their pets including the dogs with diaharea. I drive over to the housing area where there are walk paths with grass. Las Vegas seems to attract most people with vices so if you live a healthy lifestyle, get ready to always smell smoke everywhere you go even at your site if you have people that smoke around you. The water is very hard and no humidity so bring a gallon of lotion. Overall, it is okay for short stays but realistically, I will probably not return again. On the plus side, Nellis has a great gym with an Olympic size pool.
