Isle of Capri Casino RV Spaces - Lake Charles, Louisiana

I think I've missed a "Follower" and for that I'm sorry.  I try to keep track so that I can thank each one in a blog post.  I think I have missed welcoming THANK YOU Melissa for joining my group!  Also, I'd like to say welcome aboard to Sarah and also to Terry and Carol Oakley for signing on as well.  A big THANK YOU to all of you today!!  I appreciate the attention you give to reading my blog.

Sunday morning we had to get going early as we had a long drive.  We were driving from Johnson City, Texas to the Lake Charles, Louisiana area.  We have the book Casino Camping by Jane Kenny.  It lists the various casinos throughout the country that permit RV's to stay overnight in their parking lots.  Some have limited hook-ups for a cheap price, too.

Sunday we crossed the Louisiana state line around 3:00 pm.  We weren't paying attention....nothing new there!...and drove right past Exit 27 on Interstate 10.  So that meant we had to drive over this bridge that crosses the Sabine River and turn around and go over it again to reach the Isle of Capri Casino exit.

We pulled into the free dry camping lot first and then walked over to check out the few spaces they have with an electric hook-up.  Those are much closer to the hotel and casino.  Hmmmm.  We thought we might fit in the one on the end and still be able to extend the bedroom slide.  We walked back and got the motorhome and drove though the narrow lanes of the parking lot to Space #1.  We pulled in and just fit by the hair on our chinny-chin-chin. 

We walked into the casino lobby and registered for the 50 amp electric space and paid our $10.00.  The dry camping lot was free, but it was warm that afternoon and we figured $10.00 was a cheap price to pay for the benefit of air conditioning.

It was a nice enough casino, but we aren't into the we just ate our Easter dinner in their restaurant.  It was good.  One of the benefits of paying for the RV space was that we got to use the hotel's gym and shower room if we wanted to.  Nice idea about that exercising, especially after a big Easter dinner.  Yeah, nice IDEA.

We slept well, parking lot noise did not bother us, and we got up at 6:00 this morning to begin the next leg of our journey.  Tonight we are in one of our membership campgrounds, and I'll post on that tomorrow most likely.  I need time to get out and inspect the place better and take some photos.

Until next long for now!

Free is nice, but $10 is darn good also! I can relate to driving past a turn and having to jump through hoops to have to get back.

Good picture of your Tour with the bridge in the background.

How do you take such good pictures while you are riding in the RV? Do you take them through the front window, or do you hang out the side window?

Looks like you got a nice spot there. Good move on getting a spot with power for just $10 too! We're not much on gambling so don't go to the casinos very much. We do like the occasional buffet at one though!


We haven't tried the Casino Camping yet. I think it's because we are rarely close enough to big cities where the Casinos are. We aren't into that gambling stuff either but years ago in Las Vegas we sure enjoyed walking the 'strip' & going into the lobbies of all the big hotels for a big look see.

Casino camping ,Donna & I have been thinking about doing some of that just for an over night stay while traveling. Have to pick up the booklet you mentioned. It would beat a rest area by a mile, since all the casino's have a nice restaurant or buffet.We're not big on gambling either, but this really opens up another venue for short stays. Sam & Donna.

We gotta get that casino camping book! And we gotta get into casino camping! And we gotta get back on the road more!

Lead on, MacDuff, and show us how it's done.

On Sunday at 3:00 when you crossed into Louisiana, we were one mile off I10 at the first Louisiana exit (4) at Len' mothers. So we missed each other by one mile. We spent all last week in the Vinton/Sulphur/Lake Charles area.

We are now in San Antonio.

We, too, will be Casino camping as we travel the country.

Just so you know that's the Calcasieu River you crossed on that bridge twice. Hope you enjoyed your stay around the oldest bridge in our area.
