Based on prior reviews, parked in dirt lot and went to get players club to get card. They knew nothing about having to check in for RV parking but took us to security office to verify. Person in charge of security called someone and came back saying there is no charge. One of them thought they tried a deal where you could earn the $5 back by putting points on your card. Security did explain no dumping, etc., and park at our risk. No problem. Buffet pretty good given it was almost closing time. Only complaint, dirt lot has sign saying RV parking to left and trucks to right, but trucks were spacing out well into RV area. Another RVer was real unhappy with their noise (I understand why they need to run all night, but the casino tried to mitigate with separate parking areas.) It was hot (mid-September) so few RVers. I wouldn't be surprised if some kind of fee might start when snowbirds return and lot fills up.

Dry camping is permitted in the RV parking lot. This lot is standard desert dirt and is just fine most of the time. In a rain, I would avoid this lot – something to do with sticky mud! No wifi the last time we were there in February 2010.
We have visited this casino twice. The first time was on a Wednesday to get their Player’s Card. We were given an extra $10 of free play with the card. It’s a Wednesday Special I believe.
On Friday we returned for the seafood buffet. I love seafood and have eaten at many of these buffets at casinos. How does this one rate on a scale of 1 to 10? It rates as a 10! Considering that this casino has only been opened for one year, it has quite a following. The line was the longest we had seen for the buffet. We stood in line for over an hour then stood in line again once inside the restaurant for the food line. They had king crab, snow crab, calamari, frog legs, mussels, clams, oysters, cod, salmon, shrimp and all the regular food too. It was fabulous. Price for the buffet was $17.95 but with your Player’s Card you get a $2.00 discount.
Even though the RV overnight parking area was packed, it is huge and could accommodate even more RVs. We were told parking is limited to three nights. However, one fella indicated he would be there four nights because he didn’t believe they checked. Upon arrival you need to check in at the casino. It’s a great location just off the I-8 freeway west of Yuma.
