    Dos,
    I appreciate the links but I actually mean in or very close to Vegas. I am flying out two days before a gambling trip and want to hang or tent camp in or around the city somewhere safe. Stealth hangs appreciated.

    hmmmm....if you find somewhere, I'd love to know. I live right next to UNLV
    and about a mile from the strip.


    I have seen a few horse trails right between Henderson and Las Vegas City limits (easily reached by bus) but I can't say I've never seen anyone camping or if camping is allowed.


    I could also ask a buddy of mine from the Las Vegas Hikers Meet Up group.
    hmmmm.......

    and you would need a (rental) car. No bus service past the Alberton's near there.

    there are parts of red rocks that aren't in the "park" that do allow camping. i think you can camp for free in the black velvet canyon area for instance. red rocks climbers do stay in a campground near red rocks that is operated by the park service, it's basically a giant gravel parking lot with designated sites, you'd have a fire ring and and a picnic table. not a very nice campground, but cheaper than a hotel. all of those options near/around red rocks are a solid 45min from the strip.

    It's a bit of a drive, but mt. Charleston is a beautiful area. Not sure what regulations there are out there about camping, but it is worth a visit. I spent one day on the strip and the rest of the week out there.
