RV Park -- Overnight RV Parking is OK too
My wife and I found this RV location by luck back in August of 2012.
We took a fast trip from California to Kentucky and on our way back we wanted to stop at Sams Town as I remembered from a few years back they had an RV Park but when we got there it was closed the RV Park, So we went across the street and followed the signs to Hollywood Casino RV Park.
I parked at the park but had to walk all the way inside the casino to the front dest to check in.I was givin a code for the door to enter the Casino from the side great for a late night walk.
The food choices sucked as the nice steak house was closed and we dont eat at buffets and the burger cafe food was just that.We could not find the steak house and had to ask security.
Gambling sucked so we walked to the place next door and the whole walkway was covered and lighted, heck it was even a romantic walk as it was a warm August evening, ok getting off subject.
Anyways that was a better casino to gamble.
Getting back to the RV Park it was well worth the few bucks and i am glad we found it.
I think the economy has hit these casinos hard and that is why so many have changed there services, from free drinks at the bar to RV Parks being closed, to having to walk a mile to check in and not at the RV Office.

Hollywood Casino RV park is a friendly and enjoyable place to stay. The bath house/laundry area is new, and very luxurious for a RV park. Just a few more items to add to the other posts:
* The newspaper is not “really” free. You are being charged for it daily. It is up to you to pick it up, or you can refuse the charge and not pick it up also;
* Very limited pull-thru sites. If you require one, the best thing to do is call and reserve a spot prior to arrival;
* Wireless internet was free and reliable;
* Propane is sold at a very reasonable price;
* Pool (with small water slide) and hot tub area is open to RV park residents, but you need to get a pass card from the hotel front desk first, and;
* Casino was very nice with lot's of things to see along the outer edge. We didn't have much luck on machines here on this trip.
For the price, it is a flip-up between here and Sam’s Town. If you like to use the park’s showers, then Hollywood Casino is the better place to stay at.

A couple bucks a day more expensive than Sam's Town but well worth it. They provide free coffee and a free newspaper each morning (including the Sunday paper). The bath house has been recently remodeled and is in excellent shape -- also clean. The casino hotel is in easy walking distance where we find a good wi-fi signal (also in hotel parking lot). There is a coffee machine near the hotel front desk that dispenses cappuccino, latte, espresso, and other coffee choices in both real and decaf. It is pleasant to set up the laptop on a convenient table, sip cappuccino, and surf the internet. Almost like an internet cafe only this is all free. One of the major factors for us is the large open field
next to the campground were we can walk our dog.
Now for the downside (there always is one). All the Hollywood's video poker is short pay. Since this is our game of choice, this is a real handicap. We did gamble there this trip with predictable results but did get a few free meals and free camping. The Reserve within easy walking distance does have full pay machines so all is not lost. This will be our
campground of choice on future visits to Tunica.

The Hollywood has a pretty decent RV park and the price is reasonable at about $15 per day for full hook-up. They also permit dry camping in the large parking lot behind the casino/hotel. Comps and cash back are good and we have never paid for a camp site or a meal. Unfortunately, on our last visit in March 07 we discovered they had removed all the full pay video poker machines. I expect the slots payouts have also been reduced.
Their buffet is just so-so but reasonably priced. The restaurant, Fairbanks, is one of the best we have visited any where any time. The service, ambiance, and food were just superb. We manage to have at least one meal there every time we visit the Tunica area and we have never been disappointed.

We just visited the Hollywood RV Park in Tunica. We had traveled for many miles on our way back to Houston, TX (we had dry camped for awhile) and decided to stop in Tunica. Needless to say the RV park was sold out on a Saturday night.
We were invited to use the RV dump site free of charge and the parking lot Security Officer found a place for us and another camper to fill with drinking water. We parked in the large parking lot with alot of other campers and were visited by the Security staff to assure we did not need any help and to welcome us to the Hollywood Casino. This is what I call a RV friendly Casino.
Casino Camper Visit - May, 2006
We were staying across the street at Sam's and visited Hollywood's RV park just to snap a couple of photos. Maybe next time we'll stay here? It was $2 a night more than Sam's, and for that it seemed you got a little nicer landscaping. Either are a good choice, and a good value. Both have some pull-through sites as well as back in.
