That’s What I’m Talking About

We took our time getting ready to leave this morning since we were only traveling 30 miles to Nevada Treasure RV Resort in Pahrump, Nevada.  So far, this is the shortest distance we have traveled to a new campground.

The campground in Pahrump is a Passport America park.  We were looking for someplace to stay for a few days before we head into California.  They have a four night limit for the reduced rate which is $20 a night.  This place is the nicest campground we have ever been to other than Fort Wilderness in Disney World.

I get such a kick out of campgrounds calling themselves resorts because they never are. This place actually is a resort.  All sites are paved with concrete pads for the trailer and asphalt for your vehicle.

Behind the truck is a concrete area for chairs and a table.  The only negative I can say is that the sites are rather close together.  The concrete pad next to our truck is the next site over.  If someone pulls in there, they will be right next to us.  It’s pretty tight.


Some of the sites have little tiki huts with bamboo tables and chairs.  Others have gazebos with a table and chairs.  Still others have gas barbeque grills.  We are in an area without these extras, but they are still very nice sites. 

The views on all sides are these mountains.


The pool area is fantastic.  There are three different pools and a hot tub.  One of the pools has a rock wall with waterfalls.  The pool water is quite cold, and I don’t plan on doing any swimming.  The hot tub is very nice and warm.  I’m thinking we may be checking it out.


There is a fitness center with all kinds of equipment.  I’m not even sure what all of it is for :)  They have a cafe and small mini-mart.  There is a putting green, shuffle board courts and horseshoes.  There is also a bowling alley although we didn’t get a chance to see that yet.

I hadn’t done laundry in a little over two weeks.  The laundry here is the nicest I have seen at a campground.  It was $1 each to wash and dry.  The best part is that the dryers actually dried the first time through, and I had some big loads.

Today was a beautiful day with highs near 60.  The forecast for the rest of the week is fantastic.  I’m looking forward to our stay here.
