In celebration of the National Park Service’s 100th anniversary, visitors traveling to Las Vegas via RV this year can explore one of the United States’ most visited national parks, the Lake Mead National Recreation Area.
Forever Resorts‘ Lake Mead RV Village, offers two locations: Boulder Beach, located just 45 minutes from Las Vegas, as well as Echo Bay, located 95 minutes from Las Vegas. Both offer RV travelers magnificent views of the beautiful lake and its varicolored surrounding landscape.
Lake Mead RV Village at Boulder Beach offers Wi-Fi at most sites, a Bocce ball court, horse shoe pits, picnic areas with barbecue grills, 24-hour laundry facility, onsite propane for purchase and a convenience and gift store. Nightly rates include cable TV service and begin at $30 ($45 for lakeview); weekly rates begin at $180 ($240 for lake view) and monthly rates begin at $575 (no lake view sites are available for monthly use and a six-month maximum length of stay applies).
