The Karuk Tribe Breaks Ground for Renovation at the Rain Rock Casino

Local dignitaries and many members of the community turned up for the recent groundbreaking ceremony of the Rain Rock Casino, situated in Yreka, California.

Among those present at the ceremony were the Mayor of Yreka and members of the Karuk Tribe of Indians, who own and operate the casino. Hundreds gathered to celebrate the start of work on the renovation at the Rain Rock Casino, which is scheduled to be completed in 2024.

This part is the first phase of the renovation of the casino to include a new addition to the resort. Once completed the Rain Rock Casino’s new facilities will include 80 rooms, VIP Cabins, a convention arena, and a swimming pool.

It’s a great opportunity to create more jobs in Siskiyou County and more opportunities for the people who live here and the people that want to come back to this beautiful place. The ultimate goal is to make Siskiyou County and the city of Yreka a better place and make some contributions to those efforts and most of all a way of self-sufficiency for the Karuk Tribe.

The mayor hailed the project as great for the local community and the casino will create jobs for local residents. It will also see an influx of money directly into the resort and then circulate throughout the local economy.

For every dollar spent in Yreka, 75 per cent will get recirculated back into this community so it’s huge. For them to expand on this just means more value for the city of Yreka. Bringing people that would not normally stop in Yreka are now stopping in Yreka so it’s huge all the way around.
