We stayed here a couple of years ago and they told us there was a charge for the rv spots but they would comp us for the night. They have quite a few spots for RV’s with electric and water. There is also a dump station located near the sites.
Well, a couple years later we find us stopping here again hoping they would comp us again. After some of the other reviews saying they charged $50, we weren’t sure what to expect but sure enough they did comp us.
We overnighted with the 18 wheelers. The RV lots for $50 a night were back in.I played at the casino and security gave me a ride back to the parking lot where we were stationed. They never said anything to me about parking with the semis. Enjoyed this casino and the friendly staff.
Previously: you chose a site, hooked up & then went to Casino gift shop for up to 3 nights Free. Now the Hotel manages and if you Hook up- YOU PAY $50. You can stay for free (boon docking) and park with the semi's.
No Longer Free Camping - Unsure how much the fee will be
Two reports posted on forums, one Facebook, the other the CasinoCamper Yahoo Group:
Bob on FB Said: "RV'ers Beware: Just for your information, the Grand Casino, Hotel & Resort at Shawnee OK charges $50/night for camper/motor home hookup. The sites don't even include sewer. In our 3 years of fulltiming, we have never paid that much for a site. Our friends, who also are fulltimers, have parked & hooked up here before at a site for FREE (like many casinos do). The casino stated that it just changed a couple of weeks ago. We wouldn't have stayed here except the wind is fierce. We WILL NOT stay again, that is for certain! Please feel free to copy and paste and put on your blogs, facebook, etc"
When I posted it to the CasinoCamper Yahoo Group Jeri said: "I forwarded the message to a fellow RVer who knows the RV manager at the casino in Shawnee. He said they will be changing the rate. It was a screw-up for sure and only done a couple weeks ago. She wasn't sure what amount. He asked suggestions. She said $15 but who knows what it will be. However, it won't be anywhere close to $50 I'm sure."
