I stayed the night of Friday, June 1, 2018 in the farthest south-east end of the casino parking lot. I had called twice before and received conflicting information. First I called the casino RV resort and got told that I could only stay in the parking lot if there was no space in the RV resort. Later I called the casino itself and got told that I could stay for one night in the parking lot without checking in or registering.
When I arrived (at around 11 pm) there was a sign at the parking lot saying that a pass and to register with the RV resort first was needed. I ignored the sign and had a good night's sleep. It was quiet during the night but some truck traffic on the lot started rather early in the morning. My thanks to the Pechanga Casino for allowing to stay there overnight for free!
You can use the RV Park or just stay overnight in their RV lot for free. Casino gets very crowded on weekends. They have been involved in a huge expansion project. Don't be too surprised if there is still construction going on around here. Lots of retail shops and inexpensive fast food places within a short distance. Other casinos in the area, as well. Such as Pala & Harrah's Rincon
I was just at Pachanga RV Resort,in the new section in a Premium back in site. I was very surprised at how much the spot sloped toward the street.It seemed that all the ones here were the same,nice spot but all the new trees were dead.
I moved to the very rear of the space to get as level as possible,it was much worse near the street. I still had to get up on the very top of my blocks,as others had to do in the same section.I did see a few in the old section that had to use blocks but not as bad as the new section.
If I go again I will not stay stay in this section,I would stay in the old section.
On the positive side the shuttle to the Casino was prompt and came right to the Space.Coming back it sometimes took a while for them to show up,we asked about that and the driver said that they were stationed at the lot next to the RV park.
The nice thing about reserving on line is that you don't pay anything up front,you pay when you get there and they ask if you have any memberships like AAA,Good Sam, AARP etc.then they discount what you have on your conformation E mail,ours was $20 cheaper than what they quoted us.
For as large as it is there is not a lot of restrooms and showers, each restroom has 2 showers,they all seem to be on the outside corners of the park,to be fair the one at the pool was under construction.
Food is ok but very pricey $$$,I mean $15 for a sandwich and $8 for a beer to go with it,at their food court.check their website for the restaurants and buffet $$$
Large and glitzy and laid out so you will get lost following the overhead signs to the places you try to get to,but I guess they did that on purpose!
I may return but only after checking out other casinos in the area.
This is a very nice campground. We have stayed here many times. Currently, the casino is under construction with heavy traffic and noise along the street into the campground. Ask for a space on the south end of the campground to avoid the noise. And, be careful on the drive to the campground. Just past the fuel station, they have installed a traffic circle (what Einstein thought of this one). The entry into the circle is very narrow for a RV.
I go to Pechanga all the time; love it there. The RV Resort is fantastic, with everything you would like. If you belong to Passport America, the rate is just $25 per night Sun-Wed. Otherwise, there is an RV overflow lot at the very North/West side along Pechanga Blvd. (past the gas station). They ARE strict about early check ins. Check in is 2:00. If you want to check in before that, you need to pay $10. So, just park across in the parking lot and go in for a bit, come back out and check in. It's all good!
