Ak Chin Casino Camping

Harrah's Ak-Chin Casino is located about 40 miles south of Phoenix, and around 15 miles north of Interstate 8, on hwy 347. The Casino is Rver friendly been here 3 nights, and 4 days haven't seen any security. Rv Parking is right along hwy 347, so there's definitely some traffic noise. There is four restaurants the Agave which sits poolside, Steakhouse, Buffet, and a grill.
