Paradise Casino is off of I-8. Cocopah Casino is south of I-8, a bit out of your way. Paradise does have RV parking but it is only limited to 1 night. The Wal mart in Yuma does not allow you to park overnight. I would stay at a casino over some of the lone pull off roads on the way to San Diego. We stopped at one of the pull off roads because DD had to use the restroom. It looked like a coyote drop, clothes, trash, water bottles, backpacks and food was left all around. It was very uncomfortable. We hurried and headed out. I wouldn't recommend it. Enjoy your trip.

I have made the trip plenty of times, but I am leaving late after work and my campground reservation isn't until the next day, so I just want to get to the bottom of the hill this time.

How safe are casino parking lots? I assume they will have security rolling around. Do you think the parking lot will get too loud with trucks coming and going? I figure I will get the farthest away from everyone that I can - maybe find some dirt way out in the corner away from lights and noise.

I have selected some places off the highway that just have some dirt that the google car got close to so I could look at the terrain. I will just be there overnight until early morning, so I assume I can just keep the doors locked and should be fine. These places are in the desert near nothing and I would be able to see and hear someone headed toward me.

I thought about finding a small campground, but I don't want to pay for a 6-8 hour stay for no reason.

I am looking for spots off the I8 preferably between Yuma and the base of the mountains - that way I can wake up early and head over the mountains.

I was able to load the link last night when I got home from another computer - I guess no one but myself can see the stars that I put on from google maps. Here are the locations I am looking at -

32.739061, -114.720109
32.733186, -114.611769
32.789953, -115.882460

32.730577, -113.746370
32.732003, -113.731157
32.755069, -113.738540

There is a casino with Travel Center in Campo, CA on I-8. Yes there are trucks there but they have RV parking. At least you will be past Yuma, AZ.

Travel Center | Travel Center

We use the casino parking quite a bit while in transit. We never had any issues. Sometimes if the have an RV Park, we have used it. Cost was about $17. We also had one who charged $5 for power to run your A/C. It was well worth it in the summer in the Midwest.

Hope this helps.

I looked at that one, but it is at 4000ft up the mountain. I think I will probably stop at a casino before the mountain. It all depends on how I feel after working all day. I am not set on how far I need to get, anything is better than nothing. I just hate making the trip to CA in one long stretch if I don't have to. This time I don't have to.
