Red Hawk Casino opens about 5 miles from Placerville

Last night was big for Shingle Springs and the Red Hawk Casino....they officially opened their doors to the public.  Located just minutes from our bed and breakfast, we are excited to try their facilities, including a number of restaurants.

We will be visiting in the next few weeks to let you off our experience with the staff, games and especially the food, so you will have even more things to do on your next trip to our bed and breakfast.

SHINGLE SPRINGS, CA - Northern California's latest Indian casino is finally open for business.

The Red Hawk Casino owned by the Shingle Springs Band of Miwok Indians officially opened to all customers Wednesday evening.

VIPs and other invited guests got the first shot at playing the slots or blackjack in the new 278,000-square-foot casino off Highway 50 during a private opening early Wednesday.

"It's going to stimulate the economy locally because everybody's going to want to stay in hotels and motels and use restaurants and shops," Red Hawk general manager Peter Fordham said. "We really believe this is a win-win for this whole area."
