Have you ever wanted to sell everything you own and just "take off?" Travel the country's back roads, paddle down a meandering stream, experience breath-taking mountain views, walk among 100-year old trees, and just marvel at America's beauty? That is the dream that my partner, Betsy, and I decided to make a reality. This blog describes our adventure. The food we eat, people we meet, sights we see, and the enjoyment we find in traveling.

RV Park Review – Lady Luck RV Park (Caruthersville, Missouri)

Lady Luck RV Park website

Overall, this casino RV park was a nice place to stop for a night as we traveled south through Missouri.  It is about six miles off the interstate and easy to get to and for the $20/night price (or $17 – I’ll explain later), it was worth the extra miles. 

The park has 9 back-in (35’ long) and 18 pull-thru sites (75’ long) that are all full-hookup, paved and level.  (There is no price difference between the two sites.) The roads are wide and easy to navigate in a big rig.  There is no cable but we were able to get a dozen or so channels (including NBC, ABC, and CBS) with our antenna.  The free wifi worked well and our Verizon 4G phone and hotspot worked fine.

The riverboat casino is within walking distance or there is a shuttle that frequently drives through the campground to pick up eager gamblers.  Don’t feel like cooking?  Not a problem, there are two restaurants on site located right next to the RV park.  We didn't try them though.

There is a restroom/laundry/shower facility that was in need of some cleaning and was well used while we were there. There are two paved areas with community grills and a fire pit.

The park is fairly small and does fill up at night so I recommend getting there before too late as they do not take reservations. 

What we liked about this park was the price - a full-hookup site for $20.  While we did not gamble, if you sign up for the “Players Club” they knock $3 off the price putting this site at a totally reasonable $17/night.  The restaurants on-site seemed to be well visited by other RV’ers who were looking for an easy meal. 

The not so good things about this park was the lack of space to walk dogs and the sites are close together.  The park is fairly small but we were able to find a strip of grass for Spirit to chase her favorite squeaky ball.  

Spirit’s two cents are reflected above.
