We have a good story about "free" parking in Las Vegas, in a lot nearly full with about 50 rvs and a very nicely dressed lady in high heels, evening dress and all, walking to her car while saying "what is that awful smelling blue stuff?" When our neighbor gave her the answer in the crudest, 4-letter word term, the screech she emitted was epic! I still laugh out loud when I think of it. Since then, we pay.

Sam's Town and Hollywood at Tunica, Ms. are like $20 a night with full hookups or you can boondock in the parking lot for free on the asphalt. Play a little and you get comps for free rooms in the hotel. You can trade your room stays for nights in the campground. (2 nights camping for 1 night hotel) They usually don't tell that. We use that for basecamp and then run to Memphis to the sites we like to see. If you are into casinos, there are 9 within about 5 miles of each other and 3 campgrounds.

We were also just in Lincoln city yesterday (as well as last week). Stayed at Devils Lake State park. Nice place - and with vacancies.

But not all casino RV sites are bad news...

We always stay at 7 Feathers when we are heading south on I5 waiting for the Siskiyou pass to be perfectly clear.

It's cheap. Super clean. And they have and indoor pool and hot tub.

Liars and loosers

My great Dad always said that there are two types of people who go to Casinos....Liars and loosers. With that said....one should always have a little aprehension about any site that would advertise a free site. There are no free lunches...yep my Dad again....

you all might look up "The Virginian" in Jackson, Wyoming (next to Teton Nat'l Park). It is over $100 before the taxes which puts it up there in the $120 range.

Oh - free Ca$hino parking!? The same place where the buffet with the free hot dog and drink are all the way in the back past the slots & video machines, the $50 tables, the $30 tables, the $10, $5, and $2 tables, the bar, more slots, video games, and - if you can still hear anything, that free hot dog is free if it's cold from yesterday but it costs $5 for a nice fresh hot one that you can eat while sitting at the bar with a video poker game ready to roll right in front of you. And by this point you are hoping everything is still there when you get back to that free spot - not being negative, it's just the reality of the casino business model and it does seem to work for them so onward and upward. Some are better than others I'm sure. Our experience - we stopped for some gas at a casino in New Mexico late one afternoon / early evening and we had a small crowd of people several with their dogs around our Airstream in a matter of minutes asking to look inside and wondering how much it cost - we got back on good old I-40 with all our best friends the long haulers pretty quickly.

You should hang around me. Under those terms I qualify as a mentor.

Cheers,
John

It's truly amazing how much you can spend at Wal-Mart when you don't need a thing - why else would they offer 'free' overnight parking. The casino sounds a lot more entertaining and with hook ups and a restaurant - that would be my choice.
