Types of Campsites at KOA Campgrounds in Nevada

Anyone from traditionalists to glamping enthusiasts alike finds something they'll love at KOA. We cater to every kind of camper because we know that Nevada attracts all kinds of people. Some of the camping options we provide include:

  • Tent Sites: Some would argue that the best way to enjoy the arid landscape of Nevada is from a traditional Tent Site. This option allows you to commune with nature as you sleep under the open sky.
  • Camping Cabins: Just because you're camping doesn't mean you can't have a roof over your head. A Camping Cabin protects you from the elements while at the same time providing electricity and a bed to sleep in, so you can leave the tent at home.
  • Deluxe Cabins: Those heading off to the lights of Las Vegas may prefer to get dolled up in their very own personal bathroom. Deluxe Cabins include a private bathroom, and they often also have other great features like kitchenettes, linens, TVs and more.
  • RV Sites: If you're RV'ing from Reno to Vegas, you'll want to include a KOA RV Site in your excursion. These RV-friendly locales are clean and allow for easy access. They also include full hookups, 30- and 50-amp service, and some come with a KOA Patio®.
  • Additional Lodging Options: For those who think outside the box, KOA has other lodging options that are more on the unique side. From Airstream trailers to teepees to Glamping Tents, each campground has its own fun and fanciful selections. However, check with specific campgrounds ahead of time to see what options they have.

Popular Attractions in Nevada to Visit

Although you may be drawn like a moth to the glittering lights of Las Vegas, a camping vacation in Nevada gives you easy access to all this state has to offer. Both Vegas and Reno are known for their exciting nightlife and casinos. However, it's Nevada's natural beauty that will take your breath away.

The stunning Sierras and Lake Tahoe lie to the west. The Great Basin is where the vast desert meets the mountains. This is the home of long abandoned ghost towns from a bygone era and where wild mustangs roam free. Just be sure your RV or car is fully gassed up before attempting to cross any deserts.

The rich history of Nevada is another reason to visit the state. Carson City and Virginia City give you a glimpse into what life was like in a 19th-century mining town. You'll also want to check out the Hoover Dam, a Depression-era architectural marvel.

Top Places to Explore When Camping in Nevada

Check out some of these natural wonders for an unforgettable Nevada camping experience.

  • Valley of Fire State Park: Valley of Fire is Nevada's oldest and largest state park. Located just an hour's drive from the Las Vegas KOA Campground, this other-worldly place is known for its red sandstone rock formations that look like fire spewing from the desert. The landscape's impressive features were created over 150 million years ago through erosion, moving fault lines and shifting sand dunes.

    Numerous trails throughout the park allow you to get a closer look at the park's “fire” and other relics from the past, including 3,000-year-old Native American petroglyphs and many ancient trees.

  • Red Rock National Conservation Area: Even closer to the Las Vegas KOA Campground is Red Rock National Conservation Area. This nearly 200,000-acre area offers ample opportunities for hiking, mountain biking, horseback riding, picnicking and observing geological features and wildlife unique to the Mojave Desert.

    Red Rock also features a 13-mile scenic drive that brings the desert to life. You will drive past sites like the Keystone Thrust, a massive rock wall with jagged, fiery red strips that can be seen from as far away as the Las Vegas Strip.

  • Spencer Hot Springs: The Big Smoky Valley is home to one of central Nevada's hidden gems — Spencer Hot Springs. The terrain looks like it is just another sea of sagebrush, but it is actually a cluster of natural hot springs. The remote location keeps crowds away, so you can enjoy the hot springs in peace and quiet.

    Most of the hot spring bathing areas are made from cattle troughs built with props to filter the water inside the tub. The typical water temperature in the largest bath is about 140 degrees Fahrenheit.

    Enjoy a good soak and then retire to your RV for an especially restful night's sleep.

  • Lamoille Canyon: Located in the Ruby Mountains, Lamoille Canyon is known as the Grand Canyon of Nevada. This hiker's paradise boasts over 100 miles of trails. Whether you want to mountain bike, backpack or picnic, you can enjoy many outdoor activities in the area.

    To see some of the best views in the state, take the Lamoille Canyon Scenic Drive. This 12-mile drive whisks travelers up 8,800 feet in elevation, with stunning views of the sheer-walled canyon along the way.

    As you make your way up, visit the Lamoille Glacier Overlook to see glaciated peaks that soar overhead at over 11,000 feet in elevation. These peaks are the stunning result of two 1,000-foot-thick glaciers carved out of the canyon over 250,000 years ago.
