Overnight RV Parking is OK
RV Parking and Camping Information
Not many choices for Free camping/parking in the New Orleans area so this works out as well as any. It IS a bit tricky to get here but watch signs carefully (don't get stuck turning onto a "Tunnel Only" lane), but our gps got us here just fine. 20 min. to downtown - fuel and grocery nearby - cell and satellite reception are fine - even over-the-air tv works well. Casino is Very popular with locals so tends to be crowded and we had no 'luck' at all and did not like the basic atmosphere of the casino but they do have table games and good variety of slots. Big open parking lot for trucks and rv's and there was some security evident but no shuttle (walking was fine).
Check your map to avoid the 13' tunnel on the way to casino.
Large parking area, mostly level.
Security car patrols area at night.
Never saw a shuttle.
Convenient to New Orleans.
Have visited many casinos near water, never one as musty smelling as this one. Play areas and restrooms not kept clean.
Payouts are pretty low, if you get one at all.
Atmosphere is a bit depressing.
Not a lot of food choices, however the free beverage station is very nice with good selection.

Report from Karen B, Feb 25, 2008
This casino is located a little out of the way, along an industrial canal. It's only about 15 miles from New Orleans so it's a good place for overnighting when visiting the city but getting to it is a bit confusing. Make sure that you have a good map or directions.
After turning into the casino, make a left at the stop sign and go through the parking lot until you come to the section with extra long spaces. Security makes regular rounds of the parking areas. The shuttles run frequently but it isn't a long walk to the casino.
The casino has table games on the first floor and a good variety of slot machines on the second and third floors. Video poker tables aren't good.
report from the Waite's, August, 2007
dry camp in lot. 3 floors of action. On weekends all tables $15 $25 dollars. Ate in their restaurant, not the buffet, and food was good but not fabulous.
