Thurs. April 29, 2010 - Ameristar Casino, Vicksburg, MS

The sun was shining and it was going to be another beautiful day to drive an easy 180 miles to The Ameristar Casino and RV Park in Vicksburg, MS. Harry and Karen were here about 2 weeks ago and were very pleased.
Told us the ins and outs of this Casino. FYI DON"T pull your RV into the Casino parking WILL get yelled at....and it's very hard to get out of the lot. Harry and Karen told us this too:) We listened, thanks. The RV park is just about a block down the road on the right..:)
The Mississippi River is so very impressive...and this bridge is awesome:) As soon as you cross the bridge you get off at Exit 1A and about 1/2 mile down the road is the Casino...Another easy off and on for 1-20.

The RV park was almost empty when we pulled in at 1:30....but within an hour it was 3/4 full! Glad we got here early. Also, IF you want to make reservations, you can and with that reservation you'll get 50 amp. The cost per night is $23. includes cable and...we received 2 complimentary breakfasts at the buffet for Friday. How NICE!

The Casino Hotel is just behind the fence and a shuttle is available 24/7 "on call" to take you to the Casino.

All you have to do is go into the check-in building and pick up the phone. In just a few min. the shuttle is there:)

We just think this RV Park is so neat and handy.

Oh, the buffet is open from 7 to 10 for breakfast, 11 to 2 for lunch and 4 til 9:30 for dinner. We missed the lunch so went over the dinner..

This is the view as you come out of the Casino....the drive way goes up like a roller coaster.

The entrance to the Casino from the parking lot. Wish I could have gotten some photos of the River etc...but couldn't get down to that area:(

Again we were told to get a rewards card and receive 2 complimentary dinners...but that was not being offered right now. Just remember to ask - they are always running different promotions.

We thought the food at the Horseshoe Casino in LA was better, but....the desserts at the Ameristar were outstandingly delicious....made fresh and decorated beautifully. Keith was really impressed.

Here the desserts are being preped just before going on the display.
I wish you could see them in person, they were perfect. And yes, Keith found lots of coconut too:)
