Ridgecrest Native American Entertainment and Gaming Facility

The Timbisha Shoshone Tribe, which has a reservation in Death Valley National Park, is proposing a 20,000 sq-ft casino near the Naval Air Weapons Station China Lake. The proposed site is on east side of China Lake Blvd. between Desert Valleys Credit Union and the Main Gate of the Naval Station.

The Environmental Impact Study was completed in April 2017. The tribe must now seek an agreement with the city and the county over the impacts of the study. They hopes to achieve this by August and September 2017.

There is still a long term effort required to seek approval with the Federal Bureau of Indian Affairs to place their land into Federal trust.  They also will have to negotiate a gaming compact with the state governor, which must then be ratified by the legislature.

As of April 2017 the tribe hopes to celebrate a ground breaking for the casino as early as April 2018.

Ridgecrest Indian Casino Update

January 16, 2018

Ridgecrest Casino

Comments from the public have been collected and now are being considered over the proposed $29 million Ridgecrest casino. The casino will be owned by the Timbisha Shoshone Tribe.

A meeting was held on Thursday on behalf of the tribe for the city and public to give remarks on the Tribal Environmental Impact Report that was released.

Comments and concerns were documented; however none were addressed. The purpose of the meeting was to gather information for the tribe to use in consideration for their casino plans.

The tribe 's reservation is located in Death Valley National Park. This is 130 miles from the location of the proposed casino. This has caused controversy since the land is so far away. Another issue has been the casino project itself. Residents stressed concern for gaming addiction at the public meeting.

The deadline to submit comments is at the end of this month.
