Good Value for Overnight Stop in Area
Was disappointed that dry camping was eliminated, although it was replaced with an amazing parking area! Excellent amenities including grassy area with trees on perimeter, small dog run enclosure, dog poopy stations, grills/smokers and concrete picnic tables. Easy In and Out on perfectly level concrete. Only thing missing was wifi. I spoke to the Manager about this, as it is provided for WinRiver's hotel guests. Am sending some updated pics later to Webmaster.
If you have checked out California's campground fees, you must be aware that they are ridiculously high; so $24 for this overnight spot (with the $10 Play Card), is a bargain. Most Redding campgrounds are $40+.
Check the entrance out on Google beforehand; it is a little tricky. Watch the speed bumps.
When you check in and pay at the Players Club window, you are given a $10 Promo Card and a decent quality RV Sunshade. The Promo Card must be used on a single machine or you will lose the credit! This happened to another couple and Management did not restore their credit even though they were unaware of this restriction and appealed.
The only other detraction was lack of regular shuttle; the RV park is at the very furthest possible parking area from the side casino entrance and is a modest hike. They have golf carts running around but there is no schedule and no number posted to phone for a lift. I also mentioned this to the Manager.
Casino itself is a bit dated and food is pretty average and uninteresting. I got their specialty burger which was a good bargain and delicious.
This is a good, quiet resting place if you want to make an early AM crossing across the Shasta-Trinity Mountains to Arcata/Eureka and beyond.
No more free parking here
Win-River Casino no longer permits free Overnight RV Parking. The new RV area described in the previous review is now open. There are 13 30/50A E/W/S sites, and the rate is $24/night. When this opened, the casino banned dry camping in the parking lot.

NEW RV area coming soon .. I would say by December 2011
I stayed here Oct. 16th., 2011 and it was pretty quite to say the least. What I did notice was they are just about finished with putting in about 20 full service RV sites with 50-Amp for those that need it. I'm sure they will charge for these but no one seem to know when or how much they will be when ready. I submitted 2 photos here.
CAUTION: Right after you come off of Hwy #273, STAY to the RIGHT on Canyon Rd. You'll see the casino sign just follow the road to the last parking area. DON'T go into the 'Head Start' school area there is no turn around in there.
Food was excellent and good value, down side was the smoking area of the main casino drifted into the restaurant area so your clothes will smell like smoke after dinner. As mentioned they do have a slot area that is non smoking and the players card comes with a free $5 on it so go crazy.. Enjoy
Report from Jeri, October 2009
We parked at the Win-River Casino in Redding, CA for 2 nights. The location is perfect for someone traveling through. Our GPS directed us via exit 675 from I-5. However, the casino signs indicated exit 667 was the preferred exit which was an extra 11 miles south to head north another 6 miles. If you're coming from the north, exit at 675 and travel to Hwy 273. Take a left and right on Canyon Rd into the casino. Otherwise, follow the signs posted on the freeway to the casino. RV park is straight down the same road from the casino on the left.
Shuttle carts transport people to and from the casino. Register your RV at the security desk. It's FREE for 3 nights. Others have said they don't monitor that but if you stay over 3 nights, I'd check back in. They'll give you a yellow tag to put on your RV. Also, don't forget to register for their Player's Card. They've changed the bonus for doing this. We received $10 on each card for that day and were given a coupon for another $10 for the next. Every afternoon they have a couple drawings for additional casino $$$. We thought slots were tight but still had fun playing them. And, loved the no smoking addition.
Restaurant was very nice but no buffet when we went. There is a great outside eating area on the terraced patio if you're there on a nice day.

Report from James M., November 14, 2008
Update on Win-River Casino in Redding - lots of construction going on so the RV camp area is being shared with some construction supplies and equipment. They are building a hotel, new steakhouse and enlarging the casino so construction will be going on for another year.
Still a nice place to stop - the Happy Hour is now only Mon - Thurs (no weekends) but the soup/salad station in the bar is still a good deal (one time thru for $4.99).

Stayed overnight at the Win-River Casino in Anderson/Redding, California on 04/03/08 - Great pea gravel parking area with wonderful shade. Security was very friendly - run a little shuttle back and forth. Please check in at the Security Desk and register - they want to see the slip hanging in your window. Great Martini Bar although the main bar had $1.00 well drinks/domestic beers for Happy Hour. Was told the dinner special was Prime Rib - all trimmings for 9.99. Join their Players Club and get $5.00 cash and a tee shirt. They were having problems with their machines and all pay-outs had to be hand done - time consuming. Do have a separate non smoking slot room.

Visited the Winriver Casino in Redding CA. There is plenty of RV parking on the Rancheria. Nice and shaded. You need to check in with Security. Food is rather good. We won enough to have a nice dinner at the restaurant.
-report from reader M. Terrile, June 2006
This parking area is difficult to use when the casino is having a major event. We were there on a Saturday afternoon with a local boxing match scheduled for that evening. Several other rigs tried to come in in the early evening but all parking areas were full. When parking at this casino you are supposed to contact Security and get a permit slip. Some of the areas are difficult to enter with a 40-foot motorhome towing a vehicle. Casino is good though.

Exit from I-5 at BonnyView Road and go south to the third light. Turn right. Don't follow the truck signs, they have a separate parking area from the RV's (thankfully - so the RV parking isn't too noisy). Overnight parking is free, and there are lots of RV's, a really popular place.
