Thanksgiving Greetings From What May Well Be The World's Largest RV Park

When you google “largest RV park” most of the results go to “best RV park.” Size apparently does not matter as RV parks go. But we are staying in what may well be the world's largest RV park, and I want confirmation. Still, the only thing I can find is an amateurish YouTube drive around the RV area outside the Talladega race track. This is not a permanent facility, I'll warrant, although I do wish to record that I am a huge Ricky Bobby fan. 

No, I think Don Laughlin's Riverside Hotel, Casino, and RV Park, with its 900 spaces (older literature says 740), is the largest. Certainly the largest we have seen on several continents, although I admit we generally avoid such places. Anyhow, check out Don Laughlin's Riverside Resort at And let me know if you find a larger RV park.

Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving! We'll be dining over at the Riverside Thanksgiving Buffet. A prayer of thanksgiving from Ricky Bobby seems particularly appropriate:

Dear Lord Baby Jesus, or as our brothers to the south call you, Jesús, we thank you so much for this bountiful harvest of Domino’s, KFC, and the always delicious Taco Bell. I just want to take time to say thank you for my family, my two beautiful, beautiful, handsome, striking sons, Walker and Texas Ranger, or T.R. as we call him, and of course, my red-hot smoking wife, Carly who is a stone-cold fox.”

So large it can be seen by extraterrestrial aliens from outer space

The 900 spaces do not include RVs parked overnight in the
hotel lot...thanks to this helpful legal interpretation
