Ok, a little clarification on Atlatl CG. There are discounts available with a yearly/ senior and disabled resident of NV card. There are about 6-8 sites that are fairly level, including the paved, handicap sites.... if you are fortunate enough to get one. We have a 40' DP, and tried 3-4 sites before we got one where we could level, with our nose about 3' off the ground. You can find very weak Vz cell if you walk around enough, and we able to get wifi with our Vz jetpack on a booster. No AT&T service anywhere we could find. Good water pressure and flawless 50 amp. Unrestricted rooftop DTV. Sites are huge. Easy big rig access in CG and dump station. Noise travels alot here, so it is not a quiet, peaceful CG. We will return, not not in the same site. We camped at Atlatl Rock Campground in a Motorhome.

We stayed in the electric+water area in the Atlatl campground. It is certainly a scenic area and a nice campground, and we had a pair of bighorn sheep grazing just a couple hundred feet from our motorhome one day. The gravel roads are extremely dusty... by the time we pulled into a campsite our tow car was coated in dust/dirt. Almost all the sites we looked at were fairly unlevel... blocks under the wheels and jacks were necessary. Many sites are pull-in (instead of back-in), and there were a few pull-throughs. Some had their picnic area in the back of the site, others at the side of the site. We got there pretty early (noon) on a Sunday and were the only rig in the park so we had our choice of sites... by evening about 1/3 of the sites were occupied. Most of the sites have plenty of space between them, and have lengths suitable from a small class C to a 45' motorhome towing a trailer. There were warning signs that bees like to congregate around any water source, and we saw them at our spigot (which had a slow drip). We had solid 3G Verizon, and with our booster turned on we got 4 bars of LTE. AT&T was limited to Edge connectivity with and without the booster. Unfortunately it was 110 degrees during our short stay in June so we didn't get out and explore much, but we do want to return to the area in the future for a proper visit and will gladly stay here again. We camped at Atlatl Rock Campground in a Motorhome.

This is first come first serve. There are 20 W/E sites in Atlatl campground (where we stayed), and they don't last. After reading other reviews, we heeded the advise and arrived by 10 am on Tuesday to get a spot. While spring is very pretty it is also very busy, so be prepared. Both campgrounds are beautiful and the sites are nicely spaced gravel. The restrooms and showers are older, but very useable. We loved this place and plan to return. We camped at Atlatl Rock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.

This is a very nice park and a well laid out campground with some very large, level sites, and others nestled into the rock formations. We arrived about noon and our pick of the available spots. Lots of rocks to climb and a petroglyph on Atlatl Rock. It deserved a longer stay so we will be back. We camped at Atlatl Rock Campground in a Motorhome.

This state park is located about fifty miles north from Las Vegas, so it is a very popular spot for day trips and campers. There are two campgrounds in the park right near each other - Atlatl Rock and Arch Rock. Atlatl has some electric sites, water and hot showers and fills up first and early; then later on mid-day Arch Rock campground fills up. We got there around 10 in the morning and found a spot in Atlatl. So many RV’s drove around looking for spots late in the afternoon and this was only a Thursday. Many rental RV’s with tourists from overseas. There were some electric sites open, but we chose to dry camp because the temperature was only around 75 degrees and our site was more private. The sandstone red rock formations are stunning. The host was very helpful and it is a self check-in station. We had to pay $10 to get into the park. When you self register for the campsite: if you put your gate receipt in the envelope it was another $10 for dry camping and $20 for electric. If you don’t include the receipt dry camping is $20 and electric $30. One can hike in the campground and the park itself has a visitor center. There is a variety of places to hike and pullouts for scenic views. Everyone has always raved about this state park and I can see why. It is beautiful! I wish that NV would release the handicapped sites at the end of the day so all those wanting to camp here could use them. Also, they should put out a campground full sign so that campers are not going through the campground late in the evening thinking there are sites available. The sign should be at the entrance gates so you do not have to drive in to find out. Another interesting point, it seems they only collect the fee into the park at the west gate, so if you come in and leave by the east gate you don’t have to pay. If you can’t find a camping spot there is also a great BLM spot right on a cliff just north of the east gate heading to Overton Beach. There were about 30 RV’s there when we drove by in the morning. We camped at Atlatl Rock Campground in a Motorhome.

This is a very unique campground, set amongst red rock formations in a desert wilderness. Water, 50 amps, but no sewer. Road and pad are gravel so dusty, but not all the pads are level. Pull throughs with good big rig access. Very quiet with plenty of space and privacy around the RV, covered picnic table, barbecue and fire ring but no shade trees. The views of the red rocks from our RV are breathtaking. Bathrooms are old and need a good clean. No Wi-Fi but cell is good. Overton is about 18 miles away, there is nothing there, so stock up with groceries before you arrive. There is lots to see and do in this spectacular area. We would stay here again. The dump station was out of order, and extremely difficult to access from the Atlatl site exit in a big rig, so we were unable to dump before we left. We camped at Atlatl Rock Campground in a Motorhome.

Awesome campground in amazing state park. OK, it's the southwestern desert wilderness, so don't expect lawns, pools, etc. It's a state park. We camped in late December for 4 nights, the Atlatl campground was half to 3/4 full. We had one of the spots in the "first row" with an amazing sunrise and sunset view (at that time of year they're not that far apart). We've been touring the western deserts for years and somehow managed to overlook this gem of a park. Highly recommended in the right season. Don't try this in summer! The tent sites looked wonderful too. They're in the back tucked in between breath-taking sandstone formations. Not a bad tradeoff (no view). The atlas (?) campground was closed, it's really just around the corner. It has fewer views, no hookups, and the main portion is perhaps a tad denser. There are a few spots at the periphery that have incredible privacy, though. The gift shop was open (now run by the state) and we enjoyed sunrise and sunset hikes. There are no real shops or gas within miles (18, I believe), so come prepared. Overall, highly recommended! We camped at Atlatl Rock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is one of Nevada's "hidden" gems. Superb doesn't do it justice. The Atlatl site (main campground) has 3 distinct areas: RV with water plus 30 and 50 amp electric, RV/tent with water only and tent only with common area water. If you're a Nevada Senior, get a Nevada State Park Senior Pass ($15 cost and good for 12 months) and wave the park fee of $20. That's right: it's only $10 a night! We camped at Atlatl Rock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

While visiting Zion National Park, visitors there recommended this state park. The scenery is spectacular and the visitors' center is very informative and entertaining. We stayed two days at Atlatl Campground, and we enjoyed it the most of anywhere we have stayed. I was even treated to the sight of a bighorn sheep within our campsite! We highly recommend this well designed and maintained State campground. We camped at Atlatl Rock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

Two campground areas, the one with some water & electric hookups is called Atlatl Campground. There is a $10 premium for the sites with water & electric; the base rate is $14 which includes a park entrance fee. The sites were reasonably level and enormous, designed to handle two rigs/site if needed w/ double water taps. Each site is graveled, has a shade cover over the picnic table and a fire pit. Several sites backup (or nose-in) to the spectacular red rock formations and all are spaced well away from each other. Individual rest rooms are unisex as are the individual shower rooms. The scenery is simply magnificent and the climate wonderful in mid-Fall. First come / first serve basis and the park fills up on weekends even in the Fall, so arrive early. Only negative on our visit was the large number of dogs running off leash and the absence of a regular ranger patrol to advise the owners to leash up the pets. Great place to visit and we'll certainly repeat again and again! We camped at Atlatl Rock Campground in a Travel Trailer.

This park is an excellent state park. There are two campgrounds. One campground is called Atatl and has two sections. One section has electric and water, the other section is dry. (There are faucets for water at the site but they are not usable for filling your tank.) There are showers in the Atatl campground. The showers located in the hookup section are pay showers while the showers in the dry camping area are free. The other campground down the road, called Arch Campground, is dry camping and has a few sites for large RVs, although most of the sites are better suited for tent camping. We did not see any showers at the Arch Campground. Before entering either campground, there is water and dump available. We stayed at the non-electric Atatl campground. The sites are surrounded by red rock and quite scenic. The campground is a good base for exploring Valley of Fire. The drawbacks of the park as I see it are that you should expect your RV will get full of fine red sand. If there is a windstorm, as there was when we were here, then this hampers sitting outside and enjoying the scenery. None of the sites are reservable so you might consider calling ahead to check availability. We camped at Atlatl Rock Campground in a Fifth Wheel.
