At many campgrounds, guests don’t have to go far once they’ve settled into their site. At Sam’s Town Hotel Casino & RV Park-Boulder in Las Vegas, Nevada, RVers can enjoy a wide selection of restaurants, including the Firelight Buffet, with open rotisseries, omelet stations and carving stations, and Billy Bob’s Steak House and Saloon, a ranch lodge steak house that serves steaks, ribs and chicken in massive portions.
At California’s Coyote Valley RV Resort in San Jose, campground staff members help guests arrange expeditions in the surrounding area, known for its fine wine and restaurants. “We have a concierge service, which does everything from breakfast delivery to wine tastings,” says Elaine Hamilton, who owns the campground with husband Mike.
