Nevada RV Travel Destinations


Nevada is probably best known for the glitz and glitter of Las Vegas but there are so many remarkable places to visit in Nevada while traveling in your RV.  We have had the pleasure to visit Las Vegas and other points of interest in Nevada.  In addition to the National Park Service’s areas listed, we have listed some other places in Nevada to consider visiting.  Some we have visited and some are on our agenda to visit in the future.

Nevada is home to the following areas managed by the National Park Service:

  • California National Historic Trail, CA, CO, ID, KS, MO, NE, NV, OR, UT, WY
  • Death Valley National Park, Death Valley, CA, NV
  • Great Basin National Park, Baker, NV
  • Lake Mead National Recreation Area, the Mojave Desert, AZ, NV
  • Old Spanish National Historic Trail, AZ, CA, CO, NV, NM, UT
  • Pony Express National Historic Trail, Various States, CA, CO, KS, MO, NE, NV, UT, WY


We have included, if applicable, our recommended RV parks and any restaurants we particularly liked in these areas.   As RV parks, attractions and restaurants can change owners and/or management, we cannot guarantee the same level of food/service/accommodations as we experienced so please check current reviews and recommendations which can usually be found easily on the internet.

Amargosa, NV –  We stayed in Amargosa, NV while we toured Death Valley National Park.

√ Recommended RV ParkLongstreet Inn Casino RV Park  Even though the park is basically a gravel parking lot, the sites are large and easy to get into and the views of the mountains are wonderful.  The food in the casino is good and since the RV park is part of the casino/restaurant it is a very short walk for dinner.  Amargoa is a remote area without many services.  We stayed in Amargosa in 2005.  The photo in the header of our website that shows a side view of our motorhome with mountains in the distance was taken at Longstreet Inn Casino RV Park.

Death Valley National Park – We visited this harsh desert in May of 2005.  Even though much of the U.S. was enjoying the milder temperatures of Spring, Death Valley National Park’s high temperature was predicted to be 109 degrees.  It is such an awseome and unique area and, in our opinion, a must see park.  Be sure to go early in the cooler morning or very late in the afternoon after the heat of the day has abated.  Take plenty of water as the the park is can be hot and dry.  Try to visit this park at other times than the summer months, if possible.

Nevada Northern Railway, Ely, Nevada – Ely, Nevada was to be a weekend stop to get off the road over the weekend.  What a treat for us to find a railroad museum.  Not only can you view and ride they have a program whereby you can “rent” and drive a steam engine.  We were able to drive a 1908 steam engine approximately 15 miles.  This is a pricey adventure but it is a once in a lifetime experience.  Check their website to ensure they still offer this program if you are interested in driving an old steam or diesel train.

Check often as we will be adding other destinations as I research back into my journals from previous trips and as we continue to travel and find new and interesting places to go.

Featured Destination

Yellowstone National Park is my favorite national park so far. There is such a variety of things to see at Yellowstone including wildlife and geological wonders. To fully appreciate the park, you will probably want to spend more than one day as the park is very large. Be sure to see Old Faithful geyser.
