Gila River Lone Butte Casino
We’ve stayed in this casino lot on previous trips but the policy on overnight RV stays has changed and it’s no longer permitted. Signs may be posted soon. However there is a chance that overnighting will be permitted again so it worth checking from time to time. The Gila River Indian Tribe owns two other casinos in the Phoenix area and I don’t know if the no overnight RV parking policy extends to all of them.
The security guys were nice and let us stay the night before informing us in the morning of the policy change. The reason for the change is abuse by just a few RVers so when staying in any parking lot (casino or store) please pick up after your dogs, do not allow any dripping from your holding tanks, park away from the main entrance if there isn’t a dedicated RV section, do not leave bags of trash on the blacktop and follow all posted rules. Businesses are granting us a favor by allowing overnight parking and it takes just a few problems for them to decide it’s too much trouble. Casino
