Red Rock Canyon Maps
One of the cheapest winter vacations around – ONLY IF you can stay outta the casinos!
Desert day hikes, snow play, waterfalls (Mt Charleston) and petroglyphs (Valley of Fire), plus cheap hotel at night. Make VEGAS an outdoor destination, instead of an indoor, air-conditioned fantasy land.
Camping near Las Vegas can be windy during any time of year, or brutal triple-digit heat during the summer months.
Red Rock BLM Campground is located in a very windy location and situated near a busy main road. Best bet is to camp further up the mountain (Mount Charleston) – up in the canyons, with the trees, for a better experience. It can be colder in higher elevations, so always bring a jacket (at any time of year).
Valley of Fire State Park actually has a much better Campground than Red Rock.
