Elk Valley

By David Hayes

Crescent City resident Neil Yeager plays slots, separated by pexiglass in-between each machine, at the Elk Valley Casino's reopening Tuesday.

Elk Valley Rancheria is proud to announce the new casino construction is underway.

A new era is set to begin for the Elk Valley Rancheria with the construction of a long-awaited new casino. The new property located near Highway 101 and Humboldt Road in Crescent City is just minutes from the current gaming operation.

"After many hurdles, the Tribe is seeing their vision come to life. This new location and property will allow the Tribe to sustain its operations for years to come," says Matthew Dodd, general manager.

In addition to slots, table games and bingo, the new casino will feature a restaurant/bar, a coffee bar/gift shop and an event center/meeting space. Other amenities include a stage for entertainment, RV/trailer parking and ocean views.

"The casino will give our local guests a brand-new venue to experience and provide exposure to gamers who may not have known we were here" says Tribal Vice-Chair and Construction Manager Rick Warner.

"With the concrete poured and the framework going up, our goal of opening the new casino in the spring of 2022 is in sight," says Warner.

The Elk Valley Rancheria is a federally recognized Indian Tribe that is comprised primarily of Tolowa Indians, but also includes members of other local tribes such as Wiyot, Yurok and Hupa.
