This park is located at Horseshoe Casino. As a 45 ft motorhome with 4 slides we found it comfortable, clean, friendly, safe and convenient. It is a paved parking lot; however, behind each site is lots of grass. Spaces are plenty wide, good 50 amps, security patrols the area, clean laundry. No sewer but they have a dump station. Extremely convenient to Omaha, I-80 and I-29. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Just a parking lot with power and water hookup. The spaces are too narrow for rigs with slides, but they only use every other space so it works. Noise from interstate was loud. No security in sketchy area. You don't get any discounts for casino or restaurant.

If you can dry camp you might be able to save $30 to $40 by staying in different parking lot. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Use the entrance on Mid America Drive, not the one on 23rd Ave. You may not be able to make the corners otherwise.

The rv park is ok in a pinch it is right of the interstate. Price is a little high for a parking lot with only water and sewer. They do have a dump station.

I doubt we would stay here again. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

The casino is a good walk away and the buffet is expensive and not that good.

The casino is nice but you have to watch the dealers and unlike any other casino they charge you for a drink while you are playing the tables this is usually free.

Spaces are very close together. Once slide outs are out it's difficult for people to get in and out of their campers. Awnings cannot be extended. No sewer connection. Dump station nearby. The casino security manages the campground. Billing is handled at the Harrah's casino which is approximately five miles away. The billing office will place a very large pending charge on credit cards that are used to reserve and pay for the site. This is a practice that we disputed with them. Closest campsite when going to the College World Series. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed one night over Memorial Day weekend. The price is supposed to be $30 a night but the guard said since it was Memorial Day weekend the price was $40, what a rip off! If there was anyplace else available we would have moved on. They had plenty of spots available, just your basic parking lot just off the interstate so some highway noise. We would not stop again unless extremely desperate. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.

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. We camped at Bluffs Run Casino & RV Park in a Truck Camper.
