Camping at Red Rock Canyon Campground Las Vegas (with Pictures)
Red Rock Canyon Campground’s main attraction is proximity to hiking and sightseeing opportunities in Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area (operated by the national park system), and it provides easy access to the Las Vegas Strip (just 30 minutes away).

The Red Rock Canyon Visitors Center is minutes away from the campground by car. Guided hikes, bike rides, and educational programs are available, as well. Note that the visitor center, and the 13-mile scenic loop road, are a state park fee area. The campground itself is located just outside the fee area.
Many serious climbers use the Red Rock Canyon Campground as a base to climb nearby Red Rock. It’s often busy with climbers and hikers. But even when fully booked, it is still a reasonably quiet campground.
