Overnight stop north of Phoenix on I-17

Anyone with experience staying overnight in the RV lot at the Cliff Castle Casino north of Phoenix on I-17. Just need a place to get some sleep while traveling through the area. There is an RV Resort nearby, but if the casino lot is safe, that would be fine with me.

I live in Phoenix and can't recall any news about bad stuff happening there. I would think the casino might have security cameras. If your maps show the Tonto National Forest you can stay there for up to 2 weeks. If you take the Dugas exit off I-17 and go east there are some spots to pull over along the road. The forest doesn't start for quite a few miles off the highway but I see RVs there frequently. If you are pulling a tow vehicle might be hard to turn around.
If you can't find a spot give me a call, Mark 602-525-3884. Don't have 50 amp but do have 30 amp and you will need the a/c.

Thanks Leadman. The casino's that we've stopped at are generally safe and have some security presence.

Wow...I just looked at the area weather. For some reason I thought that it would be cooler at that elevation.

I stayed at Cliff Castle casino 2 weeks ago for an overnight. They are doing some construction there now, so the RV parking is in the unpaved lot north of the road that goes around the casino. It is graveled, not real level, and a real hike up to the casino if you don't catch a shuttle. But it's free, easy in and out, so it was perfect for me.

BTW, I also stayed at the new Twin Arrows casino on I-40 east of Flagstaff on my trip. It has a free dedicated paved lot for RVs with lots of room, and not far from the main building. I highly recommend this for travelers in the area.

Thanks for the info JeffAZ. Did you need to check with the folks at the hotel/casino before spending the night? The other casino looks good too!

Your welcome, HAB. No I don't believe you have to check in. I called the Cliff casino the day before arriving to ask about that, and they said no, if you stay in the unpaved lot. I have noticed a pattern in my various Native American casino stays. It seems the casinos that are close to large population centers want you to register and limit how many overnighters they will allow (I'm talking about you, Talking Stick in Scottsdale). The casinos in more rural areas are happy to have almost anyone stop in and stay, no registration required.
