This was just an overnight stop for us and we'd stop again passing through. We waited 45 minutes at the check in office for an employee to get us checked in. Must have been new. Your site is on the black top parking lot with a grass verge behind you to walk your dog. It was very soggy when we were there. Restrooms and facility was very clean. The interstate traffic was rather muffled and not an annoyance. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This park is easy to get to. Just follow the signs to the casino. Check-in is a small "security shack" on your right. The check-in is not close to the park. After registering you make a left and go directly in the parking area. The sites are simply lines painted on the blacktop. They are very close together and if all the sites were filled you would have difficulty with slides and awnings. Since it was not busy when we were there only every other site was filled so no problems with slides or awnings. Just a word of warning. If it looks like it might rain then do NOT camp in site number 9! It rained very hard while we were there. The drain for the park is located next to number 9. Water got up as high as our wheels. It was about 6 to 8 inches deep. We could not get out of the rig without wading in water! Of course it is only a problem if it rains. Otherwise it is a great site. The restrooms and showers were very clean and dump station was easily accessible. We would stay there again. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

This RV park is located right off the interstate, in the casino parking lot. The sites are on pavement and narrow, and relatively flat. Each site has a grass area behind it. If you wish to make reservations at this park, you must call the security department, though the guard told us that except during the College World Baseball series, it really isn't necessary. The laundry is excellent. Cost to wash and dry was $1.50 per machine. The casino no longer provides coupon books in the casino; however, on Monday and Tuesday nights from 4:30-5:30, the buffet is two for one. That was a nice benefit of this park. While there is no sewer system, there is a dump site available near the Laundry/Shower building. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is very convenient. Although you park on asphalt there is grass behind each space, which is very nice if you have a pet. The spaces are not large but for a night or two its worth the stay. They have a couple of nice restaurants in the casino. We would stay again if we were passing through. We stayed in a Motor home. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Motorhome.

The park is not difficult to get to & from off Interstate 29/80 (Exit 1B) but there was some road construction in the area making travel a little bit of a challenge. This park is not what one would think a casino RV park should be. Let’s face it, it is just parking stalls along the outside edge of a parking lot. So all of the sites are back in, concrete/paved hard surface, very narrow and with a complex (two different direction angles) slope for water run off out of the parking lot. No privacy between the sites. When adjoining sites are occupied, there is very little if no clearance when slides are extended. Parking for second vehicles is in the parking lot. No room to keep towing or towed vehicles connected. The park could be rather noisy due to its location. Sites 27 through 44 are along the main road and nearest the interstate so they could be very noisiest. The lower the number of the site, the farther they are from the main road/interstate. They DO NOT have full hook ups – only water & electricity (50 AMP) which is located at the rear of the sites requiring long connecting hoses or lines. No other amenities. No Wi-Fi. Found the City provided a Wi-Fi connection that was reachable from the park. No designated pet area but there were some grassy areas adjacent to the West side of the parking lot. There were some sidewalks to exercise your pet as well. There were no bag dispensers or collection cans around the park to pick up & dispose of waste. There was a common building containing the restrooms/showers/laundry room. The showers were individual locking rooms inside the common building. They were acceptable. It seemed like a long walk to the casino to eat. There were only a few places to eat. The buffet was serving prime rib so we picked the little grill. It filled the need but wasn’t anything to rave about. The only choice for breakfast was the grill as the buffet wasn’t open. Would not recommend this park but there isn’t much else in the area to choose from. Wouldn’t want to stay more than a day or two when traveling through the area. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Motorhome.

As previous poster stated, this is a parking lot only with water, electricity and a dump station. We ran the a/c fan all night to suppress the road / train noise. The $30 rate is insane for this facility and even more so when you consider the draw is a casino. Similar facilities where we have stayed would provide the same either free or minimal charge. Casino was very nice and larger than expected. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Great place for an overnight stay! Literally a parking lot with lines marked on the pavement for sites. If the place was full, things would be a bit tight, but not a problem when we were there. Our 45' motorhome had no problem maneuvering, but our 4 slides completely filled the space between the lines. Good points - paved, not a dust bowl like many campgrounds in the area, great "bath house with clean bathrooms, showers and even a laundry! Possible negatives - road noise. Didn't bother us but we were pretty tired. Would definitely stay here again on our way through. Nearby is casino, Camping World, Bass Pro Shops, Mid America Center, Famous Daves, etc. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a good place to spend a night (or longer if you enjoy casino's & dog tracks). It is close to I-29 but we really didn't notice any traffic noise. All of the sites are back in only and the hookups are located in the center at the back of the site. You may need long electric and water hoses depending on where the hookups are on your RV. The restroom & laundry facilities were excellent. The casino has very good food and if you get a new member card there are numerous discount coupons available such as buy one breakfast and get one free. The employees at the casino were all very friendly and helpful. The BassPro store is directly across the street from the RV sites. We would definitely stay here again.

Great overnight spot.Pick spot across from Bass Pro Shop, backs up to grass. Dog friendly. Casino food OK. Camping World close, Freightliner next door. We picked spot and then walked to RV Office. Use 29th street entrance. Will stay again. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Camping World is nearby and their staff recommended we stay here for an early morning repair appointment. The registration building is far from the campground and there isn't enough space for a large rig to turn around there. There were only a handful of folks camping here, but the clerk assigned us to the same space he assigned another rig to. We asked for a site between #1 - 10 to be a bit farther from the noisy expressway, but he said all those sites were reserved. There were 4 rigs camped there. No one else came in. He gave us a password for a non-existent internet. This spot is over priced compared to similar casino campgrounds we've enjoyed. But it is close to camping world.

Great overnight or couple day stay place. We have no interest in casino or dog racing, but this was convenient to our 48-state tour raising awareness for the Birth 2012 Movement. This was all the convenience we needed. Clean and bright showers and 50-amp service. PILOT travel plaza and Camping World are at same I-80 exit. We'd return, if in the area.

Even if you do not gamble, go to the Service desk and ask for a players card and your free coupon book. There are many free meals and "stuff" in it that will more than cover your camping cost. Ask for a spot with a low number (as 1 through 10) otherwise you may be backed up against the freeway. There is no sewer, but dump site attached to laundry, and the restrooms are excellent. The 50 amp power is strong. Water quality excellent with very high pressure. Turn left at 1st light just before the Shell, follow feeder to park on right. Turn immediatly after casino sign into RV registration. Basically you just park in this huge parking lot. We stayed here for 4 nights and won!

To get to the Casino RV Park you should go on I-80 to Exit 1B. Go north on 24th St. to Mid America Dr /24th Ave. Turn Left on Mid America Dr. Drive East on Mid America Dr until you see the large Casino Sign. Turn Right (North) immediately after the sign. This will take you to the Registration Shack. (Looks like a guard shack). The place you will be staying is in the south side of the RV Parking Lot. This is also beside two roadway's, I-80 and a busy roadway beside the south end of the parking lot. This is a new area and as of today you can not see the sites very well in the Google Earth Satellite view. It looks more like a construction area. All of the services are along the outer edges of the RV Parking Lot. They have 50/30/20 Electric and water. No sewer at the sites and no cable. A sewer dump is by the building where the restroom and showers are as you leave. Over the air TV has only 3 channels. Roads into the area are asphalt or concrete. Grass is only on the outside of the curb. Sites are separated by a stripe on the concrete. Sites are about 20ft wide and 50 ft long. We parked our tow vehicle in the main parking lot across the roadway marked on the parking lot. We paid $40 a night due to the Baseball tournament being held. Another way to rip off customers. I have stayed at a few Casino RV parks and this one is not even close to an RV park, just a parking lot with shore services. Unless you really want to spend your money in the casino, I would not stay here again. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

There is no pool or playground, and is is just a corner of a parking lot. No trees or shady spots. It is a great weekend or stopover. They do have laundry that works nice. Friendly staff and June has Saturday night steak/lobster buffet! We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Definitely not a destination rv park, but a great layover spot. The pluses are: Late night check in (Security guards handle the registration), very clean bathrooms with large showers and hot, non-stinky water, short walk to Bass Pro Shops w/ onsite restaurant and excellent service. Also walkable to Famous Daves and other retail/restaurants. There is a bit of traffic noise and FYI kids are not allowed to enter the casino complex. A bit pricey for what you get, but there are sometimes when $30 for a clean hot shower sounds like a bargain! We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
