Visitors can reach America’s national parks by plane, train, and car, but one of the most memorable ways to experience the parks is by RV or campervan. With your campervan or RV, you can often stay within the park itself or just outside its borders. This enables you to not only get a close-up view of some of the most beautiful scenery in the world, but also spend much less than you would staying in hotels at the parks.

Death Valley National Park (DVNP), in southeastern Nevada near the California border, is home to 3.4 million acres of desert and mountainside. While its name may seem to accurately describe its ghost-town qualities and lack of vegetation, it is actually home to several stark contrasts.
While Death Valley can see some of the driest, hottest summers on earth, towering peaks are frosted with snow during the winter months and the occasional rainstorm can produce an abundance of wildflowers in the spring.
But be forewarned: We’ve heard from some of our fellow campers that DVNP accommodations tend to sell out frequently, so be sure to make a reservation well in advance.
With dozens of themed hotels and casinos, amazing shows, extravagant buffets, and tons of other ways to have fun (often a little too much fun), Vegas has something for almost everyone. But there are also ways to enjoy yourself outside of Vegas; the city is a great starting point for some excellent RV or campervan camping trips.
There are several renowned national parks near Las Vegas. The Grand Canyon and Bryce Canyon National Park are both about four hours away; Zion National Park is about three hours away; and Death Valley is only a two-hour drive from Las Vegas—just to name a few.
So, spend a few days in Sin City and then de-sin on the road, all while soaking in some beautiful scenery.
Here are some of the best RV and campervan campgrounds near Las Vegas.

There are dozens of fantastic campervan and RV campgrounds in California, but here are seven of the best.
