Is there parking near Fremont Country Club?
You may find on-site parking at the 601 Fremont Lot for a fee. Other lots and garages in the neighborhood also offer hourly and daily parking spaces. However, drive-up rates can be quite high due to demand. The City of Las Vegas does not offer parking validation in the location.
Pre-booking a garage space is the best alternative if you are driving down to Vegas from another city and need cheaper parking for the weekend. But first, check if your hotel or rental has a complimentary parking space. If not, parking apps like Way can help you find good deals near the Apocalypse in the Desert Metal Fest venue. It’s best to find an affordable garage within walking distance of the venue or your hotel and leave the car there for the weekend. Look for a spot away from the busy streets to avoid the high parking rates due to demand.
