Most motels are on US 85 (Grand Ave.), the main north-south highway through downtown Las Vegas. (An exception is the Plaza Hotel.)


There's plenty of camping available in and around Las Vegas. I recommend the Las Vegas KOA (tel. 800/562-3423 or 505/454-0180;, which has 65 sites, 15 with full hookups, 26 with water and electricity. Laundry, grocery, ice, and recreational facilities (including a pool) are available, as is a large gift shop. Seasonal cookouts are offered. From I-25, go 1 block southeast on US 84, and then half a mile southwest on Frontage Road (also called Sheridan Rd.).

Also in Las Vegas is Vegas RV Park (tel. 505/425-5640), which offers 40 sites, 33 with full hookups, and cable TV availability. It's located at 504 Harris Rd. in Las Vegas.

If you'd rather camp at a state park, try Storrie Lake State Park (tel. 505/425-7278), which offers 20 sites with electricity, 23 sites without it, and primitive camping in an open area close to the lake. Developed sites have water, picnic tables, and grills, and a visitor center is nearby.
