Report from the Arlint's, September 2007
We are currently staying at Northern Lights Casino in Anacortes, Washington (near Whidbey Island/Oak Harbor). I will try my best to describe its facilities.
Cost: $25 for full hook-ups, including 50 amp, 30 amp, water, sewer, cable TV, WiFi internet with great signal.
Stay length: Up to 7 days. Small lot for short-term RV parking.
Signing in: Need to sign in at the front desk of the casino (RV check-in parking is in front by valet). Reservations are highly recommended, especially on weekends, since the RV sites are fairly limited (only 35 sites and only 16 are pull-thru).
Hours: 2 PM for check-in and check-out is noon. Casino is open 11-4 AM Sunday thru Thursday & 24 hours on weekends. Quiet time is 10 PM to 8 AM.
Conditions: A bit cramped but well maintained. Just enough space to run out an awning but not much more. Sites are gravel with grass "yards" and are pretty level.
Pets: Allowed. Leash not "required" but pets must be under control at all times and cannot be left unattended. Pet walk is very close to the beach and pet waste bags are provided.
Impressions: Pretty nice. The only bad thing is the close quarters of the spaces. I've been in more cramped RV parks but this is the second worst. It's livable but should be better.
Casino: Mostly electronic games. Keno, off-track betting, black jack, craps, roulette, pai gow poker, 3-card poker, Texas hold-em bonus, and small poker tournaments. Casino is fairly new with a "lodge" feel. Casino is medium sized and has a non-smoking area.
Restaurant: Very nice. Reasonably priced ($7 for a huge 3 egg omelet, Texas toast, hash browns, slices of fruit). Has a waterfall in the center of the dining area.
Bonus: There are blackberry bushes between the RV sites and the beach. In season from late August to early September. Very tasty and free for the picking!! Overall rating: 8 out of 10.
