Lake Mead Village among nation’s most scenic RV parks

Lake Mead RV Village has been named one of the most scenic RV parks in America and the most scenic in Nevada.

Editors and consultants of the Good Sam RV Travel Guide and Campground Directory selected the nation’s top eight scenic RV parks from 8,000 private parks, looking for those with landscaping that rivaled the stellar landscapes of surrounding areas.

“Many RV parks serve as jumping off points to scenic excursions. At Lake Mead Village on the shores of sprawling Lake Mead in Southern Nevada, guests can go on sightseeing tours or hike nearby trails to take in some of the spectacular surrounding scenery,” said Ann Emerson, vice president and publisher of Good Sam RV Travel Guide.

Lake Mead RV Village offers 115 camping sites with amenities such as power, water, sewer, cable TV, Wi-Fi, picnic tables and fire rings. The RV park also offers 24-hour laundry facilities, restrooms and a dump station.

“For our visitors, the beauty and outdoor recreation options surrounding Lake Mead RV Village are no secret,” said Rod Taylor, regional vice president, Forever Resorts, which operates the RV park.

Along with a bocce ball court, horseshoe pits and picnic areas, the RV park is within walking distance to Boulder Beach and the River Mountains Loop Trail. It has two meeting rooms and an on-site store that sells firewood, groceries and RV supplies.
