Date Of Stay: October 28, 2015
How much criticism can you really give something that’s free? I believe in the old adages, “Don’t look a gift horse in the mouth,” and “Beggars can’t be choosers.”
When it comes to free casino parking, my only hope is that it will be patrolled by security and therefore relatively safe. Any other pluses are gravy.
I was dead tired when I pulled into Clinton, Oklahoma, and I had no plan for a place to stay. I quickly googled for casinos in the area and found the Lucky Star. I phoned and asked for the security desk to inquire if I could park in the lot overnight. The woman was very cheerful and helpful and told me I could park near the light poles if I wanted to plug in. I opted instead to pull alongside a greenbelt so I could open my slides.
Security patroled the area all night and the next morning. A few other RVs joined me in the lot later in the evening. A small golf cart transported people in the parking lot to the casino, although it was very close by.
I’m ashamed to admit that I did not go into the casino for a meal or to do any gambling in exchange for my free night’s sleep. I woke early and headed straight to the Route 66 museum to stay on track with my timetable through Oklahoma.
Thanks, Lucky Star!
