Sky Ute Casino Resort

14324 Hwy 172 N.
Ignacio, CO 81137

We paid $23.18 using our Good Sam discount; they also accepted AAA. We had an electric and water only site because we chose location instead and then used the dump station when leaving.

Other sites have sewer.

They offer no cable but included WiFi and full use of the pool, spa, exercise equipment, laundry facility and a few other freebies. The sites were on flat, concrete pads with picnic tables, barbeques, and an attached space for your tow vehicle.

The area was maintained nicely, the walk to the casino, restaurant, and pool area was just a few steps away.

We took advantage of the promotion by each of us signing up for a player’s card and we received $15 cash and $10 off our meals total.

The restaurant offered a free continental breakfast for staying in the RV Park. We had lunch at the buffet, not a wide variety of food, but what was there, was good. They offered a boneless chicken with a sauce that tasted as if it had barbeque, teriyaki and spicy sauce rolled into one, and it was scrumptious. The price was $10.95, $5.95 each with our discount, not sure if it would have been worth it if we did not have the discount due to the lack of choices.

The casino had a bigger table area then the slots area, might be a bit exaggeration but they were lacking in slot machines. The ceilings were high which helped with the smoking and with the entire environment, made it feel less congested. The machines played with us for awhile, not as long as we usually play and we never did get ahead. We will probably return during our stay in this area but nothing really stood out in this visit.

We have added an album at our Picasa Website from the Ranch. These are the photos we have taken so far, they will be updated as we take more and we will let you know when we add more.

The campground at Sky Ute looks very nice! We have only camped at one casino and that was in Vicksburg, Ms. It was nice also.
The pictures of the Ranch are super. Looks like a wonderful place to spend your summer. We look forward to hearing about your work there as well as your outside adventures.

Take care!

We stay at casinos all the time since they really do offer so many amenities for such a great price.
