Plan your winter journey right along the beautiful Colorado River. From gaming and dining to attractions and shopping, there’s so much to discover in Laughlin.

Laughlin is known for being one of the best locations in Nevada for RV adventures, and the mild winter weather is a special treat for those driving in from colder locations. In addition to the variety of RV-friendly parks and resorts in the area to set up your home away from home, several hotel-casinos have RV dry camping on their campus, including Don Laughlin’s Riverside Resort and Tropicana Laughlin.
