This casino does offer electrical hook-ups for clients visiting in RVs at a reasonable price, but the offerings within the casino are very limited. Ample slots, but few table games and the "restaurant" in the casino is mostly a sandwich bar with a soup and...More

Wow! We stopped here during a trip to Traverse City, the bingo had 9 people playing, there were 7 people playing table games, and maybe 20 playing slots. It was Friday night, everyone seemed sad. This place has really gone down hill. This is probably...More

The best part of this casino might be the drive to get there. From Traverse City it's about a half hour drive mostly along the water. Once inside the casino, even with hardly anybody there, the smell of smoke hits you right away. There are...More

Terrible terrible casino....couldn't get waited on while donating my money (did not see 1 single slot payoff) the entire evening. Save your money....to me this is clearly a training center for employees because it sure was terrible at being a casino

This is the second worst casino facility I've visited in my lifetime. What a dump. Be prepared for a po-dunk, cigarette-smoke-infested, unprofessional time. Creepy atmosphere reminiscent of a cheap wedding banquet hall with the decor and the furniture to match. Don't bother going here unless...More
