RV Park -- Overnight RV Parking is OK too
[Admin: This is a good reason to call ahead and check on availability for overnight stops whether it's a casino or an RV park. Avoid disappointment]
We didn't see the electric outlets reported by Tony K. They may still be there but there has been a lot of construction because the casino is adding a hotel. There is a huge new paved parking lot which was where we stayed. It's a bit of a walk to the casino. There are shuttle stops but no shuttle buses yet. The construction appears to be almost finished. The parking lot has a moderate slope so some type of leveling is required.
The casino has the usual variety of slot machines but I didn't find any good VP machines. We ate lunch at the buffet. There were a few Chinese and Mexican dishes but it was mostly home style southern cooking. Okay but not great. This is a good place to stay if you want to see Old Town and the museum district.
RV Park: I’ve stayed at Isletta many times. You only have water and electric hookups. Their “dump station” is in constant need of a boatload of Draino! They close the gates at 6 PM which is challenging if you’re visiting friends in the area or the Balloon Fiesta. Their rates are cheap ($17 or $18) but the camping area is not lit. The roads are not well maintained and go every which way as do the campsites, so it’s hard to determine where you can/can’t go after dark. The night watchman is very nice and will come to let you through the gates. BUT if the gal in charge finds out and takes a disliking to you, you will find yourself on the “Do not camp here any more list”!
