Distance from Red Rock Casino to the Las Vegas Strip & Airport Shuttle Information

The Red Rock Casino Resort and Spa is approximately 11 miles and about a twenty-five minute drive to the north end of the Las Vegas strip.

From Harry Reid International Airport, (which is on the extreme southern end of the Las Vegas Strip), the distance to Red Rock is 18 miles and 20 minutes (plus or minus) by car.

Red Rock Resort and Spa is perhaps the fanciest, most elegant, classiest locals’ casino ever built. And while it’s known as a locals’ casino, its style and amenities attracts more than its share of out-of-town visitors.

Red Rock Resort is part of the Station’s Casino family, which includes joints like Green Valley Ranch, The Fiesta Rancho, and Texas Station, amongst others. Basically if you see a casino with the words, “Fiesta” or “Station” in it, you’ll know it’s a Stations Casino property.

Some scenes from the cool MIT blackjack team movie, “21” were filmed inside the resort’s casino, and the resort is known for their luxurious pool area and budget-friendly buffet “The Feast.” (Unlike the strip resorts, which can charge a fortune for buffets, the locals casinos have to be price-conscious to attract the year-round residents).

Red Rock Casino Resort Spa Shuttle Schedule to Harry Reid Airport

The resort has a free shuttle both to the Harry Reid International Airport (formerly called McCarran International Airport). This is for hotel guests only, and you must show your room key to ride.

(This map below shows you the Red Rock (Red star) and both the center of the Las Vegas Strip (black star) and Harry Reid Airport Terminal (yellow star).

Please note that the free shuttle to the Strip from Red Rock Casino Resort that used to run has been discontinued.

Each day, there are seven shuttles from the airport to the resort and back. At the airport, after picking up your bags, you’ll want to go to Ground Zero, which is down the glass elevators from the baggage pickup.

The last I heard, there is not a designated parking spot for the Red Rock shuttle, so just look for the distinctive logo on the side.

How Far is the Red Rock Casino Resort Spa From Red Rock Canyon National Conservation Area?

It’s just 6 miles, or 13 minutes driving time, to the Red Rock Canyon visitor’s center, which is near the beginning of the scenic loop.

The beautiful park has nearly 200,000 acres, and with its numerous hiking trails and gorgeous scenery – it is a welcoming, refreshing change of pace from the smoke-filled, noisy casino action of the Strip, just 20 miles away to the east.
