1) It’s lo­cated an hour west of Ve­gas, which means easy ac­cess with­out pay­ing pre­mium rates or re­sort fees.

2) Hook up! Pahrump is an af­ford­able RVers par­adise. Pahrump’s ex­cel­lent RV fa­cil­i­ties are rated highly by Good Sam Club, the world’s largest or­ga­ni­za­tion of recre­ational ve­hi­cle own­ers. And de­pend­ing on the length of your stay, rates can start around $20 per night. Good Sam has awarded per­fect “10/10/10” rat­ings to Pahrump’s Lake­side Casino and RV Park and Ne­vada Trea­sure RV Re­sort, and Wine Ridge RV Re­sort & Cot­tages re­ceived a near-per­fect rat­ing of 9.5/10/10. Other highly rated Pahrump RV re­sorts in­clude Pre­ferred RV Re­sort, Pahrump Sta­tion RV Re­sort, RV Ranch Re­sort, and Sad­dle West Ho­tel Casino & RV Park.

3) It’s easy to take a “Death Val­ley” day (or days). Fill up the tank and grab breakfast, lunch or snacks in Pahrump be­fore tak­ing the hour-long west­ward drive to Death Val­ley. Although it’s tech­ni­cally across the bor­der in Cal­i­for­nia, Death Val­ley is most eas­ily ac­cessed from the Ne­vada side, through Pahrump.

4) Learn to drive a per­for­mance car, or bring your own for a test run - Pahrump has its own race­track. If you’ve al­ways wanted to sit be­hind the wheel of a high per­for­mance sports car, the Spring Moun­tain Mo­tor Re­sort and Coun­try Club is home to the ex­clu­sive Ron Fel­lows Corvette Driv­ing School, Cadil­lac V-Se­ries Acad­emy, Rad­i­cal Rac­ing School, and the SCCA Li­cense Rec­om­men­da­tion
