We are parked in the overnight RV parking area of the Cocopah Casino near Yuma, AZ. It's a really nice area on asphalt not gravel with a great area to walk the dogs in the desert. The cost is $5 for three nights and you can stay as long as you want to. There are no hook ups so you do have to go into town to dump and get water.

Several of the RV's have been here a really long time and you can tell this is their winter camping area. But sometimes people take advantage of the situation. This guy and his mess are so over the top. It's people like this that will ruin the camping for the rest of us. Some casinos have implemented strict time limits and other rules because of idiots like this.

Casinos, Walmarts, Cracker Barrels, Truck Stops - these are all great places to be able to spend the night when you really don't need hookups and don't want to have to pay for a campground to just spend the night. Of course, after gambling at the casinos, shopping at Walmart, or eating at Cracker Barrel - it's probably cheaper to pay for a campground.


  1. I called him a "red neck" but you like your term better as an "idiot".
    Oh ... love your picture!! haha

  2. Yes, idiot would be the best word.

    You've answered a question for me about prescriptions. In the US it costs us either $4 or $11 for a 3 month supply. I am now assuming we would be in the same situation as you are - cheaper in the US for us.

    I been wondering about dogs walking in the desert areas out West. Are there pieces of cactus or anything that could get stuck in their feet? In Florida there can be sand spurs that really hurt a dog's foot. Luckily we don't have sand spurs where we are staying in Florida.


Thanks for visiting today. I look forward to reading your comments. Have a beautiful day.
