Casinos with RV parking

Question by Mike354 Posted

One of these days (years?) I am going to hit the road in a camper van and escape the northern winter. I want to make use of the RV parking available at many casinos while I play mostly daily small buy-in tourneys.

I know the Poker Atlas casino reviews show RV parking but ss there a way to filter out the listings to get those with RV parking (without having to open every poker room's site)?

2.Has anyone out there done a similar road trip?
Particularly through California and Nevada, but I also have a good reason to head to Mississippi.

3. In the bigger centers, Reno, SF, SJ, LA, LV etc do you have a recommended place to park? (Free in LV because rooms are so cheap there anyway.)

Good Luck and thanks

  1. Hi Mike, Our site does not provide this functionality, BUT we will be more than happy to provide you with a list of poker rooms that have RV parking, via email. Please email us at support@ pokeratlas.com if you would like us to send this to you.

    The original founders of PokerAtlas live in an RV and travel all over. This site was actually started because they wanted to know where all of their poker options are, and no site exited....so they created it. I'm sure Brian (one of the founders) can offer some good feedback, so I'll forward him this post, and please check back soon.

    And let us know via email if you want that list, and we'll send it to you.

  2. Hey Mike! Are you looking for RV hookups or do you just want to dry camp in the parking lots?

  3. Hi Mike! As Jon mentioned we co-founded Poker Atlas (back when it was The Poker Atlas) and live and work full-time in our RV. So we've done our fair share of casino camping.

    In Vegas, you can camp behind Bally's and at Stratosphere. Though at Bally's you're "supposed" to be staying in the hotel and just storing your RV in the back. Security has never bothered us or our friends. Stratosphere allows overnight parking, but you aren't supposed to actually sleep in your rig - but how would they know if you're sleeping. Basically, don't set up your chairs or put out your slides.

    The casino that's the most accommodating to RVers is the Orleans, and the poker there is great. So if you don't mind staying off-strip, that's your best bet.

    If you're looking for hookups, there's an RV park at Circus Circus.

    For casino camping anywhere else, you might want to sign up for our latest project: http://www.campendium.com - we're going live next month!

    I hope that helps.

  4. I believe the RV park next to Circus Circus in now closed. They are doing construction on the site for the Rock in Rio festival that is set to take place there in 2015. So you might want to double check that before making plans.

  5. @thebreeze Hey - Hey just called, the RV park at Circus Circus is still open, just smaller than it used to be.

    Hi Jon. thanks I'd really appreciate that list even though I don't know when I'll get the chance to do it. My email is mrconte354@gmail.com.
    This is really good website and I will recommend it often.
    Thanks again

  7. @Mike354 You got it Mike. Will send over in the next few days. Thanks!

    Thanks for the reply. I am getting pretty old for "roughing it" so amenities will matter at times but I also think dry camping in a safe place would be attractive. I could see playing a tournament in the evening, catching a few hours sleep and heading out to the next place. Mostly I'd want to pay for only 2 or 3 nights a week. Maybe I should just ask for ideas on how to 'do the tour' on a tight budget. After all, I'd rather save the money and give it to you all at the tables!

  9. id like the list of where u can park an RV by the casino without being charged for it. preferably in the parking lot without needing to pay for hookups which cost usually $25-40 per nite. whichever poker room would let me do this 2-3 weeks instead of 2-3 days would be where id visit. preferably in florida. but anywhere is fine except vegas. i dont like to go places for 1-2 days i like to spend several weeks at a time playing poker. and seeing i only win like $100 per day i dont want expenses over $25 a day. surely some of u know which places were less likely to mind if u spent multiple nights there?
