We're currently on a slow eastward trek after leaving Las Vegas last Thursday. We only have a couple of planned stops to see relatives and a few attractions. Nothing really set in stone.
When we're between actual destinations we generally stay for a lot of one nighters while on the road. During these stops we're not interested in seeking out campgrounds with full amenities which we aren't going to get the chance to use anyway, so we take advantage of a lot of Passport America campgrounds.
On our current journey we found a place even cheaper than Passport America, however, thanks to Bill and Chris Osborne's suggestion. Thanks guys. It worked out really well.
Lucky Star Casino as a place to stay for FREE.
Lucky Star has several casinos in this area, but we stayed in the one near Concho, OK. Take the exit for El Reno, OK just west of Oklahoma City. It was an easy drive off the interstate and entrance and exit from the casino was equally as easy.
The RV area is nothing fancy at all, but it's FREE. There are approximately 10 sites on the far eastern edge of the parking lot. Just pull in, select a site, and go inside and register with the security office just to the right as you enter the casino. They really don't care (or didn't ask) how long you're intending to stay.
Did I mention FREE? Well it did cost us $14.85 over the three day stretch in which we played the slot machines in the casino. Actually, we had a pretty good time inside as the casino gives each person $10 in free slot play just for obtaining a player's card, then those over-55 got another $10 in slot play on Sunday. Males get additional free slot play on Mondays and females on Thursdays.
Thanks for stopping by to take a look!
