Overnight RV Parking is OK
Barona Valley Ranch Resort & CasinoHot
The casino is a bit out of the way. 11 miles up a 10% grade. When we got there the staff were extremely helpful, leading us to a level parking area across the street from the casino. The security person filled out a form with us. We stayed two nights. No cars were parked near us and no other RV's were there. We got players cards in the casino with a button that we wore to indicate that it was our first time at the casino. The customer service was as good as Disneyland, staff were falling all over us to welcome us and make sure the visit was okay. My wife got a coupon handed to her for $17 off the buffet or restaurant. There were at least 6 different dining options from a simple food fair to 5 star dining. The buffet was always very busy with a long wait.
Besides the casino there was a beautiful rose garden near the RV parking and another garden area that had a barnyard theme to it. We would go back to Barona in a heartbeat.
Our RV is a 35 foot converted highway bus and we tow our car.
Report from JimM- March 15 2011
The RV dry camp parking area was extremely small and shared with the day trip buses. Big rigs could get in and out but there are not many spaces for parking. It is an L shaped area blocked off to the side of a larger employee parking area. Did have to check with Security to leave information. Shuttle did come to the lot although walking was a short distance. The casino was extremely busy on Fri. & Sat. nights. Could not get near some machines. NO BAR in the casino. Could order drinks with dinner in a couple of the restaurants and we paid $10.00 and $13.00 for 2 glasses of house wine (did not ask the price in advance). Food was mediocre... Not interested in going back anytime soon....
report from L. Smith, June 2007
I called ahead and asked Barona for permission for two motor homes. They took my name and when we arrived at the security gate they had an escort provided and took us to a very nice fenced in area. It was level and close to the casino. The security checked on us and the Casino Host's were very accommodating. Beautiful location. The buffet was wonderful and provided a discount if we joined the players club.
