report from Rick and Lucky Lucy, June 2007
Now owned by Harrah's we find it convenient to use Total Reward comp points at the Grand (earned at other Harrah's casinos) to pay for food and camping. They have a decent RV park at reasonable prices, full hook-up about $18. However, we were disappointed to find on our last trip they now charge for Wi-Fi access.
The Grand is the largest casino and resort in Tunica (probably all Mississippi) and is strung out in several buildings over many acres. They also have a golf course, trap range, and other non-gambling amusements. Everything is too far from the casino to walk, including the RV park, so we must depend on shuttle buses. They only run once an hour through the RV park but will come between runs if they are called.
We have never dry camped at the Grand but I have observed motor homes and campers parked in the oversize vehicle lot near the casino.
The buffet is just so-so but seems to have improved somewhat since Harrah's took over. The Diamond lounge is excellent and the casual cafe is pretty good. All are on the second floor of the casino.
There are still a few full pay video poker machines and we hit them pretty hard on our last visit.
