RVer reports that Overnight RV Parking is allowed, confirming reports from Mar, Oct & Nov 2018. Cracker Barrel Corporate Office requests that RVers obtain permission from store before parking overnight; here it is required. There are ~ 8 marked Bus/RV spaces behind building, with a 'No Overnight Parking' sign. However, Manager stated that paying customers who obtain permission to park overnight are welcome. Park in one of those 8 spaces. Rigs that won't fit in those spaces may receive permission to park along one edge of lot. Small rigs that will fit in a single auto parking space may receive permission to do so. Lighted, level, with moderate L-59 traffic noise. If you park overnight here, please purchase your evening meal and/or breakfast here.

RVer reports that Overnight RV Parking is allowed, confirming 36 earlier reports from Jan 2007 thru Feb 2019. Multiple earlier reports said to check in with Casino security to receive rules and sign waiver if requested; however, recent reports indicate check-in no longer required. Casino staff described as extremely friendly & accommodating. Park in separate Truck/RV lot, which is S of casino, on N side of Topawa Dr, W of Nogales Hwy. Casino Security says RVers should not encroach into hotel parking lot. Level & well-lit, with many security cameras & no apparent security issues. Many RVers report significant noise from nearby RR tracks, from Tucson International Airport (across street) after ~ 8 AM, and sometimes from trucks electing to park directly beside RVs & idle all night. One RVer notes that the other Desert Diamond Casino (in Sahuarita, AZ) is much quieter. Parking here is free, seven night maximum, unhooking allowed. 3 RVers recommend the casino's buffet. One RVer describes security as very friendly & helpful. Inquire about casino perks for obtaining their Players Club card; also ask about perks for US Military Veterans, including discounts and free hotel nights. Nov 2015 RVer reports 2-3 bars Verizon 4G & 4-5 bars ATT 4G.
Directions
