  • Lake Mead – You’ll find a lot of amazing big rig friendly areas to camp around Lake Mead. We personally stayed in two locations here. Government Wash (GPS: 36.130915, -114.837129) and Stewarts Point (GPS: 36.378967, -114.401642) Both had great cell coverage, and amazing views. Government Wash had large dumpsters at the entry way but Stewarts point did not have dumpsters or trash cans. No hookups. No water available at either. You can camp for free if you have your National Park Pass. Otherwise, fees are: $20 for 7 days or $40 for the year. 
  • Sand Mine Road – GPS: 36.471602, -114.440813. Dispersed camping on BLM land near Valley of Fire State Park and Lake Mead. Level, quiet, and wide open. Full sun. Services and a dump station are 7 miles away in Overton. The road in is in great shape for the first few miles. Great cell service. Highly recommend not going in the summer. Temps can be over 100* even at night. 
  • Logandale Trails SystemGPS: 36.593724, -114.526805. Logandale Trails System is open Year round. Big rig friendly. No limit here. It’s wide open. Can get extremely hot in the summer. If you time it right in the spring or Fall it’ll be beautiful!

  • Pioche, NV – GPS: 37.938126, -114.451892 – Free city park (donations accepted). Water hook-up’s, dump and trash cans at every site, (No electric). 7 day max stay. AMAZING little town. Very historical, old and charming. Please visit! Spend some money in this great town. The local City Hall (the old one in town) was purchased for $1,000. Pretty neat mining town.

Thousand Trails

Thousand Trails Las Vegas – If you’re wanting to perfect free camping (once you are a member) right in the heart of Las Vegas, this is your best bet! This campground is very crowded, and you’ll be parked very close to another RV. With that said, other than road noise, and a very small handful of eventful nights of spouses having a bit of a disagreement on the loud side, it was pretty quiet for the amount of people stuffed in this campground. We went in with no expectations. We are super easy going, and we both work during the day, so this was a convenient places to hook up, get some laundry done, and see the Vegas sights.
