Play Day at Valley View Casino

16300 Nyemii Pass Road
Valley Center, CA  92082

Two days off before we head to the San Diego County Fair and we plan to take full advantage of the area.  We had laundry and the big shopping at Walmart to do first, but then we took some play time at the Valley View Casino where we boondocked for the evening.

Talk about an accommodating place, this was a very welcoming establishment.  Every staff member we encountered was eager to make us feel as comfortable as possible.  Apparently, due to some squatters, they limit the stays to 72 hours.  It is a shame when a rule is created just to defer some stupid people who take advantage of situations.    

Even though we were told that it was a slow Wednesday night, it was crowded, mostly due to the loose slots and all of the giveaways.  As first time visitors, we received a free Lobster /King Crab Legs Buffet.  It was so delicious and we got our fill of seafood. 

Do not allow your GPS to take you through the mountain on Lake Wohlford Road to get there as we did.  Instead you can reach it by staying on Valley Center Road/Co Highway S6, a much better road without all the twists and turns.  Again, our GPS seems to be in a tizzy here in California and continues to take us down some pretty stupid roads that are not necessary or advisable in an RV.

We would not advise boondocking or even visiting on a weekend, or if you plan to sleep past 6:30am.  The place we are told is packed on weekends and for sleeping in past 6:30am, there was this generator noise from the building below that was so loud that there was no sleeping through it.  It ended up being a great thing for us since it allowed us to partake in the early morning spectacular view.

I liked that loose slots comment. However, it seems when I show up they just all tighten up their belts.
