Camping in the desert comes with some interesting night life. Bright stars in the heavens, and unusual creatures on the ground.
Sometimes they can be dangerous--scorpions and sometimes cute--groundhogs, but mostly they are a nuisance. There are precautions you can take to avoid the creepy crawlers in your bed.
Forget the pests, get dressed up and take in a show at one of the Casinos, gamble a little or enjoy one of the many Buffets in Las Vegas!
I am not much of a camper and I would go as far as getting a hotel in Vegas for the night and enjoy the luxury of a real shower.
Even if you are a die-hard camper, taking a break from the heat, dirt and back breaking hikes and go into town could be a fun thing to do..
