Casino camping is so popular there’s even a website dedicated to RV friendly casinos around the United States and Canada. Some casinos offer free overnight parking in their parking lot while others offer full hookups for a fee. We’ve found casino camping to be a good option when other options are limited.
One way to find casino camping is to look up casinos on the Allstays Camp & RV App. To confirm overnight parking is available, we always call the casino before we arrive. You don’t want to run into a situation where the parking is unavailable due to repaving or a special event. Below are some of the casinos we’ve stayed at to give you a glimpse of what casino camping is all about.
Kla-Mo-Ya Casino Chiloquin, Oregon
On our way to Crater Lake National Park, we stopped in at Kla-Mo-Ya Casino for a few nights of casino camping. The small casino has a huge parking lot with a large section for RV parking. There are trash cans and even portable bathrooms in this area to accommodate overnight campers. Trees provide shade throughout the area, which was welcomed on a warm summer day.
One of our favorite casino camping spots has been at the Harrah’s in Cherokee, North Carolina. This casino offers dry camping in the parking lot in a designated RV parking area with picnic tables. As a bonus, it’s a short drive to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Watch the video below to learn more about casino camping.
When we couldn’t find a good campground option in Green Bay, we were glad to stay at Oneida Casino. Oneida Casino has ten designated RV parking spots that are first come first served. The cost is $15/night for electric. There is no water and no dump facility on site.
More than just a parking lot, Pala Casino built an RV resort on property that offers full hookups. It’s a well maintained property with clean facilities and a dog park. They even offer complimentary curb side trash pick up.
