Reno KOA at Boomtown Hotel & Casino

2100 West Garson Road
Exit 4 off I-80
Verdi, NV 89439

Work was complete, we wanted to take a play day but due to the construction at the Grand Sierra Resort, we decided to find another RV Park in the area. Just 12 miles down the road was Boomtown Hotel & Casino, they had all you can eat Lobster Buffet and a KOA RV Park right next to it. We played for hours, didn’t win but didn’t lose either. They had some different machines, the casino was huge and was not crowded. The lobster buffet was good, but we both prefer the all you can eat crab buffets.

With our KOA 10% discount card, we paid $39.64 for a FHU back-in site which included cable and Wifi. We were greeted by a great host with great customer service who welcomed us as if we were long lost friends.

The first thing we noticed was the openness around the entire campground. There were a few shade trees scattered about but for the most part it was open. The park was huge with hundreds of sites, most were vacant at this time of the year.

We didn’t use any of the facilities but we checked them all out. The laundry room was attached to the office that had several washer and dryers and a great lounging area with free refreshments.

They also had the showers, restrooms attached to the office and were spacious and very private.

There was a pool and two spas located right outside the office which looked very inviting but we did not utilize them this trip.

After getting hooked up, we walked back to the office and called security from an available phone. Within minutes he arrived and drove us up the hill to the Casino. For the return trip all we had to do was walk outside to the security booth and again they were there within minutes. We loved the shuttle service, the drivers were very prompt and courteous.

We would highly recommend this place and if we are ever in the area again, we would certainly stay here.
