The National Treasure RV Resort in Pahrump, Nevada is a great place.  It is all RV’s and each spot has a concrete pad and full hook-ups.  Electric is additional.  It is well maintained and free of debris.

Set just outside the main hub of Route 160 that runs through Pahrump, this park is enclosed by a security wall and filled with flowers, palm trees, rock formations and trees.  The main office hosts a bowling alley, cafe, exercise room and additional banquet room.

This park has a huge pool and jacuzzi that is well maintained.  The pool is not heated, so in the winter months, enter at your own risk!  They could use some new lounge chairs!

They will accept the mail for you including packages.  You pick up at the main office.  You do have to pay a refundable fee when registering for their key card which allows you entry into the pool and the actual RV park.

At many of the sites, they have tiki huts and/or gas grills.  We had neither at our site, so if you want one or both, ask them when you register.  The Wi-Fi is spotty at best.  No streaming of any kind AND they tell you about it when you register…you use it for streaming, and you will be kicked off the Wi-Fi.  Nothing like threatening your paying guests.   We had to use our personal hub quite a bit so Sally could work.

This RV park is about one hour to Las Vegas via Route 160.  It is a beautiful ride through the mountains to get there.  Pahrump itself has little to no shopping other than two grocery stores and one discount store.  Vegas is the place for all of that.

There are several small casinos in Pahrump, but since Vegas is only an hour, hit Vegas!  There is a winery in Pahrump as well and if your rig is small enough, you can also camp there, too.

The RV park’s customer service at the main office could be more accommodating.  Having to stand and stare at the front desk staff for 10 minutes while they stare at their computer screens is quite annoying.  They really could use a lesson in “smiling”.  Their maintenance team was great.  They do pick-up your garbage every day.

Winter rates average between $400 and $800+ per month.  It all depends on the size of the spot you need.  Remember, electric is extra and they charge around 14% for themselves as resellers.

What we didn’t care for was they have memberships to the gym and pool for Pahrump residents.  I’m all for making extra money for maintenance, however, paying $800 per month plus electric should mean the rv’ers get the park to themselves.  Not happening at this park.

The weather in Pahrump in the winter is good – but, BEWARE…the dust is horrible!  It is the desert after all!

Some good motorcycle roads including riding to and through Death Valley.  Do this type of ride in the winter only since Pahrump can reach up to 105 in the summer. Route 95 is a great road — windy, but level and paved.  Be aware if you are on a motorcycle: snakes cross the roads and really like to try to “get” you!  Pull up your legs and MOVE!

If you have a quad or ATV, there are many trails to suit you up through the mountains.  You can ride your ATV right out of the park.

The Saddle West Casino has an RV park as well.  Much less expensive if you are looking for just a week or so.  The casino is, well, a joke, but the RV park is quite nice.

Weird things about Pahrump:

No form of city government which means no local police.  It is all county.

No zoning or code which means a broken-down hut house next to a beautiful oasis home.  There are a few subdivisions set outside of town that do have covenants.  With all the beauty that surrounds Pahrump, this is just enough to keep us from living there.  We like code!

One golf course that homes have and are being built around it.  The golf course is challenging and fun, but the dust from the construction and the massive amount of noise is a bit much.  Progress is noisy!

National Treasure RV Resort is really quite nice.  We met some great people there.  The town of Pahrump is, well, another thing!
