Smelly, smokie casino to walk through before you get to the crowded restaurant. The only thing I liked about it was the chicken fried steak,

“Terrible's Lakeside RV Resort”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

This resort is under new management/owners and is now called Lakeside Resort, was purchased by Gold Nugget. The resort & pool are a lot cleaner than it was the last time we were there, laundry and showers were exceptionally clean. The food in the Casino was also very good. We especially enjoyed the walking/bicycle trails, paddle boats etc. The staff is great.

The only negative was the charge for WiFi even though it didn't work inside our unit and was very sporadic, hence the 4 instead of 5 rating.

“Nice little lake but customer service could be better”
Reviewed July 29, 2012

The casino is small but a nice place to get your gambling fix out of the way. The RV park is very nice, stocked lake with a nice walking trail around it. Check in was easy and the front desk people were very helpful. Sites are big and most have trees, but still hot in the summer. Pool was heated and for the most part clean but watch out for ants-they will drive you crazy!

They also have a sandy beach with free paddle boats and kayaks which was pretty cool, however, the day we got there (on a Sat) they were closing the whole beach down after 4:00pm-which included the paddleboats and kayaks-due to a wedding. Understand that in Nevada the coolest part of the day is after 4:00pm, so my kids were pretty bummed. Would have been nice if they had told us that when we booked the reservations.

So we decided to go to the pool instead....well, that was until they began to rake the beach with an atv pulling a wire mesh chain right next to the pool. Apparently, they wanted the beach to be nice and smooth for the bride and groom but could care less about the extremely large amount of dust that floated over to the pool covering every inch of the tables, chairs, and then us having to breath it in. I was like....really??? (the pool was full of people)

Apparently this place is under new management and is not as nice as it used to be according to some fellow campers. We may try it again, but I'm not sure how this place got rated the "#2 RV park in the country" per the sign out in front of the park.

Go inside and get a players card from the casino and save $11 per night. Better than a AAA or Good Sam discount.

“Lakeside RV Park in the Desert!”
Reviewed April 23, 2012

Terrible's is a great little casino, friendly people and a nice buffet! The real gem is the RV park, though! There is a beautiful walk way around the lake, and interesting statuary...plenty of benches to sit and enjoy the birds and ducks along side the lake. Nice clean rest rooms too!
