Venturing from Las Vegas in a Campervan - Native Campervans
Venturing from Las Vegas in a Campervan
Bright lights, flashing neon signs, slot machines, and Elvis impersonators. Ah, Vegas! There are countless sites to see and things to do, and they aren’t all exclusively urban. In fact, sin city is placed perfectly for the adventure-seeking desert dweller. Our Las Vegas campervan rental office is the perfect place to depart in a campervan and we want to share some of the best spots.
Valley Of Fire State Park
In just 1 hour’s drive from Las Vegas, you can be staring into a sea of vibrant red rocks. The fire wave trail takes hikers on a tan-striped corridor to a unique rock formation frozen in time.
Camping recommendation: Park your van for the night off of Sand Mine Road BLM or Snowbird Mesa. Both spots are free!
Zion National Park
Take your #Vanlife quest on the road and drive 2 hours from Valley of Fire to the towering sandstone cliffs of Zion National Park. Ascend to the top of angles landing up a series of paved switchbacks or meander between the enclosed canyon walls of the narrows.
Camping recommendation: Sheep Bridge and Gooseberry Mesa BLM are both in close proximity to the park.
Just over 1.5 hours from Zion is the legendary Antelope Canyon in Arizona. This unique slot canyon can only be accessed through a guided tour. Make reservations online to see sunbeams dance between the spiraling red rocks.
Camping recommendations: Lone Rock Beach is a campground situated near the shores of Lake Powell ($12 a night). If you’re looking for more seclusion then take your conversion vehicle to Badger Creek BLM (use caution on this dirt road).
Feeling grand? Take a short road trip of 2.5 hours to the grandest canyon of them all! Wake up early for sunrise and hike the famous rim trail. If you drive just an extra half hour you will get to Grand Canyon’s north rim. This spot is perfect and has 1/10 the number of visitors.
Camping recommendations: Saddle Mountain Overlook is a free site right on the edge of the rim (15 slow miles on a dirt road to access). Kaibab National Forest East Viewpoint is a free spot surrounded by trees near the north rim.
It’s an equidistant journey from the North & South rim back to Las Vegas at roughly 4.5 hours. Stop by the Hoover Dam if you can squeeze it in! After your driver gives your Campervan a long loving hug goodbye after an amazing weekend in Las Vegas. Take a look at our Campervan Rental Las Vegas page if you’re looking for an RV for your holiday.
