The Gun Lake Tribe and Gun Lake Casino officially have announced new expansion plans for the casino’s property just off the U.S.-131 expressway, Bradley exit.
The $300 million project will transform the current location into a hotel resort with many amenities.
Gun Lake Casino has experienced multiple expansions since opening in February 2011 and this continues development on the master planning and infrastructure required to create an entertainment facility. Gun Lake Casino’s current expansion construction is will open at the end of this summer and work on designs for Phase 5 will begin immediately after completion.
Gun Lake Tribal Chairman Bob Peters said, “We are proud of the continued growth of Gun Lake Casino, which is directly connected to the outstanding effort of our team members. The Tribe remains steadfastly committed to reinvest in our collective future, for the benefit of tribal citizens, team members and the local community. This will provide even more employment opportunities and enhance Gun Lake Casino’s position as a tourism driver for western Michigan.”
Sal Semola, president and chief operating officer of the casino, said, “It is with great pride that we reveal the largest expansion in Gun Lake Casino’s history. Today’s announcement demonstrates our commitment to maintaining the reputation as a leading entertainment and gaming destination in Michigan.
“As a vital business in Allegan County, we recognize our ability to invest in our local community. The elevation of our offered amenities drives our economy through tourism and directly impacts the livelihood of local citizens through the development of new job opportunities.”
The casino’s vision is to become the ultimate entertainment and resort experience in Michigan. Gun Lake Casino’s expansion will add about 250,000 square feet to extend the property going west toward U.S.-131.
Gun Lake Casino will be home to a long desired 250-key four-diamond hotel, offering luxury suites and rooms for guest’s comfort. A rejuvenating full-service spa and three-meal restaurant will accompany the hotel.
Another high-quality element of the expansion will be a fully enclosed glass domed pool and nightlife entertainment space, offering the climate and atmosphere of an island oasis all year around. By day, guests will have the option to relax by the poolside, enjoy the warmth of a hot tub or reserve a private cabana. After dark, the area will transform into the nightlife scene, featuring live music, DJs, dancing and more.
