KOA at circus circus is very basic. The pool fills up quick on hot days and gets very, very crowded. People who stay at the hotel come and use the pool facilities also. Many, many kids. The sites are blacktopped without any trees. In the summer on a very hot day there is no shade to cool off. The water hook-up has for some reason 2 spouts, when my husband hooked us up and I took a shower I told him to reverse our hose b/c I thought he hooked us up to the hot water. Turns out it's because the ground is so hot.
The campground is at the end of the strip so it isn't like you can walk to other casinos other than Circus Circus, and at night when you feel like having a drink and not driving, the only casino is Circus Circus, and let me tell you there are some very shady people at Circus Circus at night. I would choose a nicer campground and take a cab or drive in, at least you will have a nice place to hang out during the day.
