We have stayed at this park going north and south for years as it is right off the Interstate 35, easy to get into and out of. But that may come to an end if they don't do something about their roads. I truly don't know when I have see such large and deep potholes. One takes risks taking their RV's over these holes. The casino either needs to maintain this park or close the park. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

This is a horrible place. First come, first serve so if there are any adequate sites, they are taken but there probably aren't any decent sites. Extremely narrow roads and sites make it a challenge to park without hitting another RV and staying out of the deep ruts at every corner isn't possible. Some of the electrical boxes are broken and all of the water spigots are so tall and close to the broken concrete pads that they may interfere with a bedroom slideout on the driver side. If you're in this area and can't drive on, dry-camp in the truck parking area. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Park elsewhere.

Like others have said most of the pads are broken up probably because they are too narrow without proper lead in and out ramps. The roads are narrow too and very poor, along with poorly placed, untrimmed trees made it difficult to stay on the pavement with a large rig. The site I ended up in had a tree than blocked my forward exit so I had to back up. I saw other doing the same thing. Walk the park before entering (I didn't) to select a site, then call the phone number and eventually you can get someone to come out and take you to the casino where you register with the valet. No reservations. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Some sites and roads have really bad holes that you don't want to drive into because they are deep enough to cause damage. There are a number of water leaks, broken pads with some unusable. Spoke to staff and they said that management makes their money from the Casino and not the RV Park so they do not want to put any money into it. If nothing is done to improve the sites this park will probably close down based on current condition. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Easy on/off access to major interstate. Clean sites with good utilities. On-demand shuttle to casino. Sites overlook small, man-made pond. Good for overnight stop. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

We loved finding a level, easy access place to overnight. We don't gamble, but we did walk over to the casino to pay, walked around a little inside. There was a restaurant and bar there along with lots of slot machines and tables. Yes, some pads had broken spots, and any ruts next to the pads were obviously caused by RVers who couldn't keep their tires on the concrete! The pads were concrete and even though the parking area was on a hill, the pads were pretty level, and were pull-throughs. Some had the sewer mid-range, some farther back, so I would suggest two things, walk the pads and pick one that matches the utilities to your RV, and keep in mind the higher up on the hill you are, the farther you are away from the annoying goose poop. Of course, I've had to dodge plenty of dog poop from inconsiderate pet owners who think it's perfectly fine to restrain their dogs with an enclosure, and then pack up and leave, without picking up the refuse from their pets, so although the goose poop made it a little of an obstacle course, what else is new! Each site was generously sized with a picnic table, the Wi-Fi was excellent, it even had free cable. It was a HECK of a deal compared to many places we've been. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

There wasn't much around this immediate area, but the casino had a good sized restaurant, bar, etc.

The trick with this park is trying to keep your tires on the narrow roads and narrow cement pads with almost every site and roadway sporting deep water-filled ruts on edges. We did manage to snag one of the few wider sites. Site was level, utility connections were easy although 50-amp plug was damaged, wifi was very good, Verizon signal was very good.

The RV hook-up sites are all near a PILOT Truck fueling station which does have laundry service, Showers, and Restrooms all available 24/7.

There is sewer, water, 50 and 30 amp electric, cable ( TV ), WiFi (several to choose from), at the sites. Sites have concrete pads that vary in length and all with asphalt access. Most sites are nice with no cracks in concrete but the asphalt is very rough in many places and not enough coverage when turning into or out of site.

There are holes in the dirt/ grass at most of the outside edges and corners, mainly because there is not always enough asphalt to to turn onto with the longer units.

Trash is picked up everyday. We camped at Lakeside Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
