This is not a free overnight stop. But, as I said in 2019, it is a nice smaller RV park. The overnight fee is only $40 plus tax. It is well managed and clean. Food is available inside. We stopped here on our way south last month. Hookups are good, with the only caution that for some RVs the sewer hookup is just a little high, but can be overcome with a little lifting of your drain hose. That worked for us.
We stayed overnight 1-30-19. Shuttle driver guided us into space. Nicely paved area with good hookups, although sewer hookups (which we didn't use) appear a bit high. Spaces slope down a bit at front if not unhooking, but nothing we couldn't live with. Price is very reasonable compared with other casinos. Food in restaurant was very good and reasonable if you get players card and are a senior. It is a little ways in from I-5, but not too bad. Actually it was quieter that way than staying next to freeway. We definitely would stop here again.
Ok So I'm not a gambler so why would I stay at a casino RV spot? I like to eat, yes you heard me . Win-River did not disappoint Wed night Pasta Bar Buffet $15 with free Players Club Card. Excellent - went heavy with large shrimp in pasta. RV parking $26 included well light, secure, patrolled, w/s/e and courtesy shuttle to Casino if you wanted it otherwise about a 75 yard walk. Even used the $10 promo they loaded onto the Players Card just had to ask how to use it on the machine(s). Yep walked away with a $2.93 in winnings after using up the free $10 loaded on the card from a Non-Smoking penny slot machines. I would stay here again in a heart-beat. Shuttle drivers were very friendly and stopped to chat with RV'ers while doing their rounds.
Hey Redding was 80 degrees and pleasant compared to cold and rain of Oregon.
It will be a cold day in the Devils backyard when I return. More later.
The RV park was fine, check in simple and the staff great. For what ever reason the hookups are in a raised island so when you dump you need to hoist the hose several times to drain. More of a PIA than anything. Another minor complaint was the pad had quite a slope to it so since I don't have levelers took awhile to get it right. Again no deal breaker. Desk told me checkout time was 1100.
In the AM wife had to work for awhile so pulled out and parked in the furthest out of the way corner to eat before we left. Just got started eating and over the PA "second call for the owner of a..." I go to where they ask me to report to and no one is there. BP goes up a few points. Find someone to get the casino dog catcher. He and his body guard finally appear. He make a point that I am taking four of his highly valuable parking spaces. Mind you I backed into a corner. I told him if I was to pull into a spot it would have still taken four spaces or two if I left the tail end hang out. He couldn't understand the concept of putting an 100" wide object in a 84" hole plus pulling up so the rear isn't in the road. BP racing up.
Proceed to tell him that the mirror tag is still hanging in the window, they could tell I was an overnight guest throwing more money in the toilet. His response is that I should have parked in the RV lot. He doesn't know they have a 1100 check out time. I guess his badge he got out of the Cracker Jacks forgot to state this.
Bottom line was I would stay to eat, then leave. Tried to get him go comp me for my now cold meal, but that didn't work. BP now going to danger level.
Food was fine, wife didn't do so hot gambling.
Redding always has been the armpit of California, now I know why.
Things have changed. New Hotel attached to the casino which "has taken over everything" according to the employees. The RV park is back where we used to dry camp. Spaces level- well marked- pull through length for us at 33" towing a car… Shuttle followed us to our spot and gave us instructions- electrical box was locked. Had to go to Hotel Registration- register- Pay $24.00- receive key to unlock electrical- received coupon for $5.00 off at the gas station when you buy $25.00 gas + coupon for 2 for 1 at the golf course. No longer giving $10.00 in casino play unless you are new players. Shuttle driver did come back later to get us + came and got us when we wanted to head back to the RV. Nothing new inside the casino- just some new games- food okay…..Did get 5% off food with our players card..
