When walking in I realized this was not a regular casino. Not impressive, very outdated. Slots were ok, but again, a little run down. Not sure why, but in one section we were all fighting off little bugs. They were popping out of nowhere. Crawling up your leg or arms. It was pretty bad. Bathrooms should be picked up more... More

If you want to have a nice time and get a little gambling in, stop in and play the machines, or play some Texas Holdem.

Small but inviting Indian gaming stop - decent selection of machines with some older ones other places have phased out. Video poker choices more limited than previously and lots tighter. They now have alcohol available and an OK restaurant. Don't know about their table games

Not Vegas by any means, but some of the latest slot machines and friendly staff. Very lucky on several of the machines.

Went here for dinner one night, never got waited on. Keep watching the one server going in and out of kitchen, handling the other 3 occupied tables. Finally left, and she sweetly said 'goodby'.

A fun place to visit after a day of fishing and hiking. Slots paid out and the atmosphere was pleasant.

My wife and I like the Nevada style Game King video poker machines. We found several 9/6 nickel machines that provided hours of fun. We are disciplined players and have walked away with a profit several times after playing video poker. The casino staff is friendly and helpful. You won't die of thirst waiting for a drink. The casino needs... More
