RV Park -- NO Overnight RV parking
Sam's Town Casino
We enjoyed our stay and for the first time ever, spent the holidays away from home. We used Bconnected comp points (easy to get in Sam's Town) and Harrah's Total Rewards points to pay for all our meals for the entire two months. In fact we built up so many points in Sam's Town, Lucky Lucy cashed in a bunch for a new iPad. We did gamble quite a bit.
Once again our casino host was no longer employed by Sam's Town and we were assigned another, John Sou. I never met him in person but on a lark sent him an e-mail to see if they would comp us part of the RV park fees. To my surprise and delight, they picked up the entire two months. It always pays to ask.

We stayed on the south side. Bathrooms and showers are clean, two dog runs, common areas are usually clean. For our purpose, we travel with two dogs, it was fine. Quite a few shaded spaces and adequate grassy areas.
Our space was next to the Boulder Hwy but was very quiet late evening and early morning.
The walk to the casino is through the parking garage. Nice walk to stretch the legs. Always felt safe.
Staff was helpful and friendly. Definitely will stay again.
We ate at TGI Fridays. It always seems like all TGI Fridays are short staffed and this was no exception. So if you have lots of time, this is an option. They do have good happy hour specials.
It looks like they allow long term rental too. We enjoyed our stay and definitely will stay again.
The RV park is an easy walk to the casino where we find a variety of eateries, good VP, coffee, movie theater, bowling alley, ice cream parlor, and shopping (if you like that sort of thing). Additionally, they run free shuttle buses to the Strip and Downtown where we have even more dining choices. Players get big discounts on food (40% I think) if using BConnected slot card points.
We had a good relationship with a casino host (and a bad relationship with a different one, but that is another story). We got most of our RV park time comped. Between BConnected and Total Rewards from Harrah's we never paid for a single meal, and we dined like kings. However, within the last year ST cleaned house and all the casino hosts are gone -- both good and bad -- along with their boss, the director of customer relations. Don't know what happened but I do know we didn't get as many days comped last winter. The guy I dealt with didn't wear the title or host or customer relations.
We are still getting the same offers for free rooms (or RV park), tournaments, meals, etc., and will probably still go there for part of our winter excursions. We love the shuttle buses service and the convenience of the RV park, even if we have to pick up more of the tab.
