We stayed here 3 times in May for a total of 10+ days. Our rate was a combination of PPA and GS discounts plus a couple free nights. The physical facilities (large , pull-through, FHU, cement, sites with cable TV (60 channels) are very good. Most sites are large, cement (both pad and patio), level, pull-through, and open for satellite. The large pool that was closed for 5 days of our stay because of a broken ladder. There is also a playground next to the pool area. The one weekend we were there, the 802.11 system was almost useless because of the number of customers try to use it. We have never had that problem here before. Once again, golf cart users and speeders (both customer and employees) were a serious hazard for anyone walking in the park. The great facilities and amenities in this park are overshadowed by poor management and their failure to address safety concerns. We camped at Paragon Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

If you don't like crowds/kids, don't come here on big weekends.

Very nice park, Used the shuttle numerous times and found the staff and driver extremely helpful.

Site could have used a little better drainage, had been raining quite a bit and water pooled up on the pad. We camped at Paragon Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stopped here for a couple of nights just rest up, but found the park to be very nice, and clean, large pull-thru's and a friendly staff, they even pick you up at your rig and shuttle you to the Casino. We happened to hit on seafood night at the buffet and it was very good, to top it all off the wife won $86.00 which paid for the food, RV space and she still made a little extra. We camped at Paragon Casino Resort RV Park in a Fifth Wheel.

Tips for other Campers:

Interesting museum close-by regarding the Indians of that area, a Wal-mart is only about 1 mile from the resort, we took a sightseeing drive through a wildlife area and it was a nice break from the highway.

The casino has several specials for food, gaming and etc... we where lucky enough to meet someone on the shuttle who was a seasoned visitor to the resort and they really helped us find some bargains.

Very nice campground with free shuttle service to the casino. There is very little to do in Marksville other than the casino. Restrooms are modern and clean, however the showers have a common dressing area which is a negative to me. There is a playground on site and a pool. We camped at Paragon Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Tips for other Campers:

Walmart is about a mile south of the Rv park. The casino is on an Indian reservation that adjoins town. The only way to Marksville is via LA-1 from either the north or south, with east west travel being by secondary roads that are not designated as truck routes and rather round about due to the many bayous in the area.

We stayed here twice on this trip (early October and then late in the month) for a total of 10 days. That is a typical May or October stay here for us. The rate I show includes some free nights, 5 days Passport America, and some weekend days. The park is resort quality: long cement, pull-through sites, full hookups, 60 channel cable TV, and a Wi-Fi network that has always been reliable. A nice pool, golf course nearby, playground equipment, and the casino. Recent cool (<50F nights) made using the pool a chilly challenge since they don't heat it this late in the season. Surprisingly, the park did not even come close to being filled (as used to happen) for their usual Saturday LSU football games get-togethers by the locals. What negates the positives about this park is the slack security when it comes to how fast people drive in the RV park. I complain every stay, but it evidently falls on deaf ears. Rather than punish these speeders and risk losing them as customers, the resort does nothing. Twice during this stay, I was almost hit by employees while walking to the lodge from my site. I know they were employees because, after they passed me, they pulled into the employee only parking area behind the RV lodge. Rather than confront the idiots in the lodge (and possibly lose my cool), I settled for filing a complaint on the resort's comment cards. Somebody is going to get killed in this park by one of these self centered idiots. Great facilities and amenities, dangerous situation. We camped at Paragon Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

This park is very clean and well maintained. The sites are large and level with grass and trees. The pool was cool, clean and refreshing. The office personnel were friendly and helpful and the shuttle service to the casino was very prompt. The casino is first class, as is the RV park. Be sure to see the swamp display and alligators in the hotel lobby. We look forward to staying here again. We camped at Paragon Casino Resort RV Park in a Travel Trailer.

The main reason to stay here is to go to the Casino! That said it is a very well kept resort with good size sites, well maintained, and cheap. Cable reception was good as was internet WiFi and Verizon. Price reflects passport discount and they discount that when you get points on the players club card. The only suggestion I have is that the should spread out the campground occupied sites. With such a large campground why cluster everyone together?

This park has full hookup sites with cable TV and Wi-Fi that worked OK for us in the RV. Most sites are long pull-throughs on cement pads and patios. The amenities (pool, playground, adjacent golf course, etc.) are resort quality. The big negative for this park is that they still allow customers and employees to speed in the park and the area between the lodge and the casino. Customer safety is of no importance to them.

Well designed park, good sites, facilities function as expected, restrooms/showers well maintained. Easy access and big rig maneuvering. Sites are great size and lay out. Casino was fun. We'll be back. Rate reflects Passport America discount. We camped at Paragon Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Very nice RV park. Rates a 10 if it had on site, all season, pool and hot tub. Showers are very nice but hot water was not hot enough for me. They also need a mat in the dressing area. Casino crap table activity was slow during the week as were the free drinks. Park is a real bargain at the PA rate. Our 4 day stay was comp’ed due to our modest ($$) gambling. Be sure to get a bill on check out to insure comps were indeed registered. We camped at Paragon Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

We stayed here for a total of 9 days in October. We were here two2 days (free on coupons) the first week of the month and then for a full week at the end of the month (2 free nights and 5 on PPA). As usual we had a FHU, pull-through with 60+ channel cable TV, and free WIFI that worked well for us. Most sites appear to be level and satellite friendly as was ours. Even on the one weekend that we were here, the park was only about 1/3 full, so we didn't have a lot of problems with crowds and noise. Yes, the LSU fans ride around in carts, but I didn't notice any significant noise from the revelers after 10 P.M. Although I did not see any underage golf cart drivers this time, there were still plenty of speeders (both customers and employees) to make walking around the park and to and from the casino very dangerous anytime of the day or night. Management continues to ignore a safety issue which could be easily fixed with a little effort. We camped at Paragon Casino Resort RV Park in a Motorhome.

Price reflects Passport America rate for 30-amp, W/E/S, cable TV & Wi-Fi site. Pull-through concrete sites are level. The amenities are great for the price, but the showers and restroom need attention. There is no reason for dirt and crud to be built up in the corners. Grout in the showers is crumbling and missing. We have been staying at this park for over 10 years and have seen a steady decline in the cleanliness of the restrooms & showers. We camped at Paragon Casino Resort RV Park in a Travel Trailer.
