Desert Sands RV Resort was built in 1979 by Robert McMackin. Inspired by trips through Mexico, the Southwest and Santa Fe, The Desert Sands RV Resort, in it’s classic adobe style, is an architectural stand-out in the region. Hearkening to the roadside charm found along Route 66 and in keeping with a classic roadside stop, our Pittman General Store is a charming mercantile shop offering modern sundries and an excellent cafe. The General Store is named in honor of Nevada Senator Key Pittman, who served as the Chairman of the Committee on Foreign Relations during the Roosevelt administration. Pittman also refers to the original community in Henderson built along Boulder Highway. Dating from 1929, some of the first homes sites in Henderson, housing the workers building Hoover Dam, were in this exact area. When purchasing the land for the resort, maps were redrawn from the original 50’ sites used for pitching tents. Historic Quonset Huts and a former motel round out the grounds of the Desert Sands Resort. Mr. Mc Mackin and his family welcome you to enjoy the history of the Desert Sands Recreational Vehicle Resort. Come see us in the office and say “hi”.
