Traveling from the north , this is one of the few RV parks open year round. Easy access in and out as there were few other rigs there. Some of the interior roads have larger potholes so check each row before pulling down one. There were some new concrete pads but others were very broken up. I noted others commented on lack of shuttle. It is only about a block to the casino. Downside, lots of goose droppings. Adequate for an overnight stay. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Gamblers would enjoy. There is also a restaurant and bar inside the casino.

No restrooms, laundry or showers, but we stayed here last year and loved it for the $20 price. But they raised the rates to $30 with no discounts now. No bargain for what you get. One good thing though is you can use the pool/hot tub in the hotel. We will probably skip next year and stay longer in the Amana Colonies instead.

Paved interior roads, some potholes need fixing. Pads mostly level. Price increased June 1 2014, as late as June 3, web site still said $20. Wi-Fi iffy, cable good. NO DISCOUNTS. Cash or check only. Will take check, but must take check into another part of casino to get okayed, where credit cards are accepted. Was there 4 days never saw security drive through. Did have shuttle, but had to walk to th park entrance to call shuttle. Not sure if a time limit, but several units had tall grass around them where it hadn't been mowed. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Lakeside is a convenient, clean, and reasonably priced place to stop for the night. It isn't a place I would seek out for any longer than that. We would stay here again if passing through. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

The sites are all pull through but fairly tightly spaced and narrow. The concrete pads need resurfacing and the park needs some general maintenance but the price was right for full hookups and a safe place to stay right off the Interstate.

Good for over-nite. Price was right. No shade so ac runs in the hot weather. Cable is offered (no extra charge), but most of the channels except 3 are blurry. Register and pay at valet office right inside first set of casino doors, then go pick your site. We would stop again when passing by on I-35 for the price alone. Twenty bucks flat for full hook-ups that worked like they should. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

A little bit old, but very serviceable. There are no restrooms, so don't bother if you need them. There is Wi-Fi and it worked fine. There is also cable. The park is laid out great, easy in and easy out. It's no longer a Terrible's, just Lakeside Casino. The casino was good, on a faux riverboat. It was floating though. Had fun. Great for one night. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Good clean overnight spot with very good Wi-Fi. One review said no one collected any money - that is because you need to go to valet and pay. The cool thing is the hotel pool and hot tub is included - just ask at the hotel front desk and they make you a key to access the pool and gym. One drawback is that there are no restrooms/showers.

This is definitely a place to use as an overnight place only. It is right off the freeway and super easy to get to. The sites that are not all chopped up or marked as off limits are all level. Somebody told me that a casino worker would come by and collect money for the stay. They said that they had stayed here five times and only paid once. Nobody came by although there were plenty of drive bys by staff collecting garbage. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Park name has changed to Lakeside Casino RV Park. Someone told us that Terrible's had gone bankrupt. The park appears to have had WiFi at one time, but it was not working and our Verizon signal was very weak. We were able to access the internet with our MiFi only part of the day. True the pavement is in bad repair but utilities worked well and most welcome in the 100 plus degree heat. Lunch buffet in the casino was available from 11-2 for $8.99 which we found to be excellent. It's an inexpensive overnight stop and not a destination. Very convenient to Pilot/Flying J. Pick a site and pay cash or check at valet parking at the casino entrance.

This is basically a place to park your rig close to the casino. 50% of the sites have collapsed concrete, blacktop has caved in a few places, a few sites were completely blocked off for lack of water and/or electric. Looks like they had cable, now don’t but ready to add it. Wi-Fi can be picked up from Pilot on hill for $5 for 24 hours, it is not available for free in park. Our Verizon MiFi could not pick up internet, also phones were on extended network and 1X. Des Moines TV stations can be picked up, but not great. There are no restrooms/showers at park. Valet guys at check in are very nice, but would rather be parking cars than checking in RV’ers. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Level sites with a concrete drive and pad. Grass with small trees between each site. The only negative was goose droppings everywhere: someone with a hose could do wonders. We tried to call several times to find out if there was availability before we arrived (no reservations) but it always went to voice mail. Very cheap for full hookups ($20). We would come here again. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

Best stated as, "You get what you pay for." I believe the economy has affected this campground. Not too well maintained. On-line information is incorrect; there is no $10.00 gaming rebate. The Wi-Fi does not work; there is no cable. Would only stay here again in a pinch. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Nothing has changed since my review in October (see below) except the Terrible's Cowboy sign along side the freeway is gone. No more landmark. I think the casino is re-branding itself. The old Terrible's casino chips will no longer usable either. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Cash price paid at valet parking just inside casino doors to the right. This was a good overnight stop with easy off/on. Our Verizon signal was very weak and slow. There was some construction and mud/dust and noise issues this stop, and the usual pot holes in the narrow roads. Buffet was a good value and we will stay again.
