Report from Lee T, December 2, 2009
I just discovered your site and know it will prove to be very helpful and I hope to be of some help to you from time to time as well.
I have been in Las Vegas for almost a month and I have mainly stayed at the Orleans but I have spent 1 night in the very empty Red Rock Casino, 11011 West Charleston Blvd, Las Vegas, 89135, parking lot with no problem but at about 6pm on night two, 2 bicycle security guards informed me there was no "camping" allowed and gave me 20 minutes to leave even though I was about to go back in the casino and play. They said I'd have to get a room to park there. (I drive an almost new 40' Monaco Dynasty diesel pusher so I know it wasn't because of my coach being an eyesore that caused them to tell me to leave.)
Report from Lee Otsubo, The Digital Photo Guy, October, 2009 www.thedigitalphotoguy.com
Stayed at The Orleans, Las Vegas for 3 nights Oct 1-3. The guards were very friendly and accommodating. There were, at least, 3-6 other RVs plus myriad OTR trucks parked there each night.
Report from Karen B. March 2007
A few things to add to the Pat's report. The lot is very big, well marked and right across from the arena. There were 50 - 60 trucks and RVs parked each of the nights we stayed there. None of the trucks had their engines running. Whether this is a casino policy or if it was just because the weather was perfect, I don't know but it was great for sleeping. All of the RVs with slide out extended or levelers down had notes in the morning but we were not tagged.
This casino is huge. You can get to the casino by going in the door marked ticket sales. Remember your path - we got lost every time! There are nine restaurants. We ate at both buffet and the Mexican restaurant. Both were good.

When we left the MSS RV park, we pulled over to the Orleans for a few days to sit out the New Year's weekend. They have an over-sized vehicle lot with a mix of RV's and semis. When we pulled in, we asked a Security guard about parking - he said they don't want people "camping" but that if you're going in and gambling and eating, they don't mind if you park there. Tonight will be our 5th night here, and no one has bothered us. We go in to the casino daily to eat and play - no problem. I think what the guard really meant was "no squatting." We're going to leave tomorrow, but it's been a nice place to hang out for awhile.
The buffet is above average; the Courtyard Cafe has 2 menus - standard American fare, and Chinese. The Chinese is some of the best I've ever had; the appetizer for two was outstanding. I suspect they use MSG, especially on the beef dishes, but overall, I'd highly recommend it. There are nine restaurants here. The last time we were here, in October, we tried to catch a quick meal at TGIF's. After waiting for 15 minutes without so much as anyone bringing us a menu or glass of water, we walked out.
The slot club pays $3.00 cash back for every 1000 points. They occasionally have double points days, as they did on New Year's Day. Our luck has been mixed, mostly playing Bonus Deuces VP - seems like either Craig wins and I lose, or vice versa. At least we don't both lose at the same time! (But then, we're still playing on the MSS jackpot, so what the hey)!
The parking lot in front of the Orleans Arena (just a few steps from our door) turned out to be a great viewing spot for the New Year's Eve fireworks - we were able to see them from the Stratosphere on down to the MGM Grand. (No way was I going to get into the middle of the crush on the Strip for "America's Party")!
There is a liquor store in the casino - across from TGIF's - and it has some of the best prices I've ever seen, so stock up while you're here!
Update on the Orleans - the day after I posted about our stay, we got a notice on our door which stated:
"This hotel is not authorized for overnight camping. Please DO NOT lower your camper levelers or extend your 'pop-outs,' as this is considered (camping). (If levelers are found down, your vehicle may be towed without notice, at owner's expense). Thank you. Orleans Security."
I looked around, and saw that they left notices on every RV in the lot. We don't have auto levelers, or slide-outs, and we got one, though we were unhitched. We re-hitched our truck and stayed 2 more nights with no further incident.
I suspect that they blanket the lot with notices, perhaps once a week or so, so that they can say they are "complying" with the Clark County Health Dept. rules and regs.
report from Jim M. April 8, 2008
Visited here March 27, 2008. RV Park was full and they said we needed
reservations. Did find us one spot for 3 nights. When we pulled in there were no signs except to "check in at the hotel" so we took an
empty spot and hooked up. Walked over to the hotel only to find out
all spots were reserved and we had to go back, unhook and move to a
tiny spot next to the on ramp - but at least the did give us a place.
Our gambling experience wasn't as good as others have had - the desk
told us in order to get "comped" you had to gamble 1000 points a day and we only averaged 300 - so you can see we are not big gamblers. Did REALLY enjoy the 777 Brew Pub. The food was excellent and the Happy
Hour prices are good. Ate there all 3 nights. Is a convenient place to stay and visit all the sights- easy on and off the I-515.

KOA at circus circus is very basic. The pool fills up quick on hot days and gets very, very crowded. People who stay at the hotel come and use the pool facilities also. Many, many kids. The sites are blacktopped without any trees. In the summer on a very hot day there is no shade to cool off. The water hook-up has for some reason 2 spouts, when my husband hooked us up and I took a shower I told him to reverse our hose b/c I thought he hooked us up to the hot water. Turns out it's because the ground is so hot.
The campground is at the end of the strip so it isn't like you can walk to other casinos other than Circus Circus, and at night when you feel like having a drink and not driving, the only casino is Circus Circus, and let me tell you there are some very shady people at Circus Circus at night. I would choose a nicer campground and take a cab or drive in, at least you will have a nice place to hang out during the day.
from reader S. Thompson January 2006
In case you didn’t know, this is a KOA park, and priced like one. I think we paid $45 a night for two nights. Maybe they have lower rates for longer term. We don't gamble much, and didn't play at Circus Circus, or maybe it would have been free?
Pretty much a big parking lot with hookups, and you’re packed in tight. We only stopped in for a couple nights, so we didn’t learn much about it, just got a first impression, overall good but expensive. They have both 30 and 50 amp hookups. We had a deluxe site, 50 amp.

You can change your listing on this one, on 4/8/09 we were informed the Cannery North would no longer allow overnight RV stays in the West parking lot due to some recent bad experiences during a NASCAR race event. Chalk another one off due to a few bad apples!
from Karen B., February 2009
RV parking is in the lot behind the casino and hotel rooms. There aren't any signs but this lot doesn't appear to get much use. We stayed two separate times, three nights in all. Security made regular patrols but they never stopped to asked us to check in so it doesn't seem to be required.
from Karen B., April 2010
we met some friends at the Eastside Cannery for lunch and found that all of the lots were marked - No Oversized Vehicles. We parked anyway at the farthest lot where we saw another motorhome and some commercial trucks and went into ask security. They told us that where we were parked was good, lot 7, and that if we had a room we could leave the motorhome there but we had to get a pass. Parking for the day did not require a pass.
from reader S. Thompson, Jan 06
Large park with over 200 spaces. Somewhat crowded but we got in. Large RV's are OK here. Well maintained campground, clean and safe feeling. Only stayed one night passing through. Sorry for the brief review. Maybe someone else has stayed there longer and can tell you more.
report from Rob & Betsy, October, 2008
When we got there, they were full but RV park manager did say we could dry camp behind the main casino parking lot, close to I-80. We passed and went to another RV Park in town, as we wanted full hookups. We have stayed at Model T several times and do recommend it. Bob & Betsy
report from Alice P. July 2008
We stayed here in late July of 2008. There were no nesting birds in the tree at our site and our dog enjoyed the grass. We registered and got the Escapees discount, 10 nickels for the slot machine, 2 free drink coupons. We ate at the restaurant and found the meals to be satisfactory. This casino/campground is nothing fancy, but satisfied our needs. There is a Raleys Grocery across the street and there is gas/diesel at a reasonable cost about one block away. I would stay here again.
report from Rick and Lucky Lucy, July, 2007
Leaving Reno on I-80 we only traveled a few hours down the road to the town of Winnemucca where, according to the Casino Camping book, there was a casino with a RV park. After a little searching we found the Model T Casino and RV park -- $20 with Good Sam discount. The weather was warm and we needed the A/C, and what the heck, we are flush with cash from Reno so we pulled in.
Each site had a tree and it was obvious the trees were prime roosting places for our feathered friends. Everything was covered with bird poop; the pavement, the picnic table, the electrical box -- all showing evidence of recent roosting activities. So a couple times about dusk I went out and ran the birds off much to their chagrin, they sat in other trees and fussed at me.
We ventured into the casino and found it appropriately named, it was just about as modern as a Model T. However, the cafe (no buffet) caught our eye, a sign proclaimed Two for One Tuesday. Two T-bone and shrimp dinners for the price of one -- $13.95 for both. We could stand some of that so went in. Well you can imagine how good a T-bone steak would be for seven bucks. I didn't know they could slice a T-bone that thin. ;-) But the shrimp was good and so was the salad bar.
Trying our hand at games of chance, I won enough to pay for the RV park and our dinner. Life is good.
The next morning I discovered a couple birds made it back to their favorite roosting tree and we were "bombed". Also the windshield and hood was covered in tree sap so a mini-wash was in order in spite of the admonition of "no camper washing" by the park. Makes Wal-Mart parking lots look good; definitely cannot recommend this place.
Report from Lisa, October 1, 2010
Per casino the campground was sold and torn down three months ago......only place with hookups now is KOA.
Report from Pat, October 2, 2009
We also recently stayed at the RV Park at the Wendover Nugget. The RV park is actually in Utah, and the casino is in Nevada. $25.00 per night for a basic site with 30 amp electric. There does appear to be a fair number of "permanent" residents. I assume some are probably employees. They get the employee rate of $250 per month for the RV park; the normal monthly rate is $340. And the weekly rate is $130.
Directions: I-80, exit 410. South to Wendover Road. East on Wendover Road, then south on A St. RV park is on the right. Big rigs OK. Good sky picture for satellite.
Note: Wendover AFB is nearby, so you do get occasional loud jet noise. They were practicing for an air show while we were there.
We found some NSUD deuces games at the Nugget. And the weekend brunch buffet was quite good.
We also stayed overnight for free in West Wendover (on the NV side) in a large parking lot located on the north side of Wendover Road, between the concert hall and the Montego Bay casino. We checked with security at MB - they said parking there was OK, and we saw several other RVs in the lot as well.
- report from Bill Adams, September 4, 2008
Rates are up to $25/night and $30/night on weekends. Full hookups with mostly 30 amp and about 5-6 50 amps. Level concrete lots with room for the towed beside.
Distance from Casino? Walking distance to 2 casinos and short drive to 3 others. - Amenities? None! This is a minimally maintained park but it was clean and tidy with mostly permanents and few of us overnighters. The KOA down the road costs $38/night but has a pool but all gravel sites.
- report from Rick and Lucky Lucy, July, 2007
We pushed on to West Wendover on the Utah border where we found Las Vegas/Reno style casinos. The Casino Camping book said Montego Bay had a RV park for $17 per night. We found the park but it belonged to the Nugget, not MB. The park was run down and pretty much gone to seed. The office was abandoned and the front door smashed. A couple of permanent park residents looked like refugees from Grapes of Wrath. But what the heck, we are tough, have a big gun and a big dog, we pulled in. Actually there were several other traveling RVs present along with us.
Registration was at the hotel desk so we made our way into the casino and registered for the night. Nice casino, large, well decorated and lots of favorable VP machines. However, it was mostly empty. Bored blackjack dealers stood at their tables waiting for customers who never came.
Lucky Lucy was hot and we soon had our pockets full of their cash. We decided to have a look at their buffet and noted no line and few customers inside -- always a bad sign. The price of $15 each didn't do much for us either but being flush with their cash we ventured in. The clerk rang up $11 each, must have been senior day, and the food was pretty decent. More customers ventured in but there was never a line at any of the serving stations.
We spent a quiet night but the weather forecast the next morning was predicting rain, heavy at times, and possible flash floods. We debated holing up for a couple days but decided we would push on. As we pulled out I noted the automatic lawn sprinklers were doing their duty but now only had weeds to benefit from their efforts.
