We stayed at Circus Circus KOA last May as an overnighter on the way to Zion. Big parking lot, but there was electricity which helped run our air-conditioner ALL night long - a first.
Had dinner in Circus Circus - the air was overwhelmingly dank - the worst I've ever breathed. The people were sad and depressing. We left at 7AM. Drove straight home on the return trip. I'm not a Vegas fan. (Can you tell?)
Seriously, there are far better places to spend your time and money.

This thread is kinda depressing me. As a child of the 60s, our family vacations were spent "out West" escaping the humidity of the Midwest. The wide open spaces had such a profound effect on me that I moved out west in my early twenties. I spent many, many weekends in Vegas, Arizona and the deserts of California and Nevada in the eighties. What really appealed to me was the openness, and unstructured travel...if you had a trailer in tow, simply pull off anywhere and enjoy the beauty of your surroundings. Las Vegas was an Oasis, best experienced by cresting the hill on I15 late at night. Now...Vegas is another LA, sans the beaches and the entire west has been outfitted with barbed wire fencing and do not trespass signs. Even Bullhead City is losing some of its luster.
