Tribal Organization: Ione Band of MiwoksIONE BAND OF MIWOKS' CASINO (Future)
Opening date has not been announced.
The location is a mile west of Plymouth, 11 miles from the city of Ione, and 30 miles southeast of Sacramento.
The U.S. Department of Interior announced May 25, 2012 that it has approved an application submitted by the Ione Band of Miwok Indians in 2006 to build a casino on a 228-acre parcel of land near Plymouth in Amador County.
Amador County has one existing casino, the Jackson Rancheria Casino & Hotel in Jackson, and a second one, Buena Vista Casino near Ione, whose opening is delayed by a lawsuit. On June 29, 2012 Amador County filed a new lawsuit against the federal government in hopes of stopping this casino.
The scheduled dates for construction and grand opening are now delayed on to be determined.
