Lakeside Casino and RV Resort in Pahrump

I don't know if I told you this already, but we decided that we're going to check into RV parks every time we have to dump.  Because when we dump it's also time to take showers and do laundry.  Dump stations are cheap, even free some times, but outside of swanky state parks we don't get the amenities we need. 

"But Milly," you say, "aren't you too cheap to pay for a night at an RV park every time you need to dump?" 

Yes I'm cheap.  Proud of it too.  And you should have enough faith in me to know that I found a way to stay at RV parks four or five times a month while STILL being cheap.

I got Passport America!  It's a club that gives you 50% off on a multitude of RV parks.  There's three in Pahrump.  I found I could stay at the swanky Lakeside Casino for only $15.  That's the same that I would pay at a dump station with water in many places.  But this also gives me laundry (not free, but access) and showers.

Well, I sure figured it out, didn't I?  It's smooth sailing from here on.  Yes, sir, one cheap night at Lakeside Casino will put us right for the next 4 to 5 days and then it's back to our sweet little boondock.  :pats self on the back:

My mom:  We're only staying one day at the RV park?

Me:  Well, yes.  We're just dumping, taking water, showering, and doing laundry.

My mom:  That's a lot of laundry!

Me:  @_@  Yes, but, it's not going to take more than a day to--

My mom:  So I have to spend the whole time we're there doing laundry? 

Me:  But...well, I can do the laundry if you want, there's just no need for us to--

My mom:  Why can't we spend two nights there?

Me:  Why would we--

My mom:  I have to spend my whole time doing laundry while you goof around fishing at the lake?!  I'm tired, Yamila.  I'm still sick from the mothballs.

Me:  But...we're only staying there to--


Em...yeah.  So there's a very nice casino attached to this RV park.  My mom was not okay with only seeing to the necessities when a nice casino would be beckoning her.

:SIGH:  So I paid for two nights here.  And because tomorrow is Friday I had to pay the weekend rate.  My cheap dump station plan went from $15 to $38.  -_-  DANG IT!  And after I was nice enough not to mention that she broke the handle on the screen door.

Anyway, Lakeside is a gorgeous RV park with an artificial lake that's stocked with fish.  And yes.  I will be fishing here.    The casino is the best one in Pahrump, too.  Last time we were here I won $760 on Keno.  It has a restaurant that used to be nice, with $5 buffets, but the $5 buffet was gone and the service went down hill.  Meh.  It's still a nice RV park. Evo.  I wonder if it's our old one...
