Casino Queen Hotel  Casino RV Park (East  St. Louis, Illinois)

From a lawn chair in their campsites, RVers can look across the mighty Mississippi River and watch the setting sun bathe the St Louis Arch in golden light.

In the foreground of this gorgeous vista sits the Casino Queen Hotel and Casino, a short shuttle-ride away from the RV sites, some of which are 70 feet long and all of  which are carefully maintained. Although the 142-site RV park is closed  November through February, the Casino is open tear round, and Casino Player magazine has consistently rated the Casino Queen’s  slots among the  country’s loosest. The fact that the Casino also offers $2 blackjack and 25 cent roulette doesn’t tip the odds in the players  favor, but it certainly eases the pain of a losing streak.

Of course, if  RVers decide to stay at the Casino Queen RV Park, they will likely feel victorious on all fronts if they watch one of the casino’s  shows, eat at its  fine Prime Steakhouse and explore the nearby  St. Louis Zoo, the Science Center as well              as Laciede’s  Landing.

Coushatta Casino Resort/Red Shoes RV Park (Kinder,Louisiana)

Palm Trees at Coushatta RV Resort


In the southwestern part of the Pelican State, 23 miles north of I-10, sits an establishment that understands quality and delivers it in spades. And hearts and clubs and diamonds. Coushatta Casino Resort features more than 2,800 slot machines, more fhan 70 table games and a 22-table poker room,where Texas Hold’em can be played legally,unlike in the neighboring Lone Star State. The entertainers who play Coushatta include the biggest of big names, such as Reba McEntire, and the casino features six restaurants under its roof. The adjacent golf course, Koasati Pines at Coushatta, may be a tongue-twister, but it also has received a 4.5-star rating from Golf Digest, and golfing RVer will likely warm to the fairways that wind  through wetlands among pines and the live oaks.

The adjacent Red Shoes RV Park has enough amenities –a two acre lake, tennis, basketball, volleyball and shuffleboard courts; a swimming pool, and two bathhouses, for example–to entertain those travelers who do not gamble or play golf. Though only about 300 yards sit between the casino and the RV park,a shuttle makes the trip easier, increasing the time in which to strike it rich.

Chuckle for the day!

Freya was driving her Chevrolet Vega home in New Mexico when she saw an elderly Apache woman walking along the side of the road. She stopped the car and asked the woman if she would like a lift?
With a silent nod, the woman climbed into the car. Freya tried in vain to make conversation with the Apache woman.
The old Apache looked closely at everything she saw, studying every little detail, until she noticed a red gift bag on the seat next to Freya.
‘What’s in the bag?’ asked the old woman.
‘It’s a bottle of whisky that I got for my husband.’
The Apache woman was silent for another minute or two. Then speaking with the quiet wisdom of an elder, she said, ‘Good trade.’
