The closing of the Camel Rock Casino marks a new beginning for the Tesuque Pueblo. The tribe will be opening the new Tesuque Casino at a location that is close to eight miles away.

The new Tesuque Casino will employ 275. The casino will also serve as a way to boost the local economy for the tribe and help fund services for members of the tribe.
The new Tesuque Casino was developed near the open air theater, the Santa Fe Opera. The property used to be the location for a flea market. Subcontractors were hired from the local area as much as possible. Products for the Tesuque Casino will be purchased from local vendors. This includes supplies and food.
For dining there will be The Cottonwood Kitchen at Tesuque Casino. The restaurant will offer an exhibition kitchen, a patio with 75 seats, and a lounge with bar area that has a view of the casino floor.
The casino will offer 10 table games and over 800 slot machines. The new Tesuque Casino will be using new gaming machines and machines from the former Camel Rock Casino.
Design for the casino includes giant windows where guests can see the vistas north of Santa Fe and the Sangre de Cristos.
