Twenty-Nine Palms Tribe Plan Casino Resort & RV Park Project on its 160-Acre Reservation in Twentynine Palms, CA
TWENTYNINE PALMS, Calif., Dec. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- The Twenty-Nine Palms Band of Mission Indians, a federally recognized Tribe, will unveil plans for the first phase of a multi-million dollar, multi-phased economic development project to be built entirely on and within its 160-acre reservation in Twentynine Palms that will include the exciting Nuwu Casino Resort & RV Park.
Phase 1 of the Tribe's development will include the approximately 60,000-square-foot casino, a 100+-space state-of-the art KOA RV campground, and miles of dedicated hiking trails.
Subsequent developments of this phase may feature a 100+-room national brand resort hotel, 1,000-seat outdoor amphitheater, retail center, executive championship golf course and residential properties.
The Nuwu Casino Resort, which has been named after the ancient Chemehuevi Indian word for "The People", will feature 350 state-of-the-art slot machines and a number of exciting table games featuring blackjack and Texas Hold'em poker, bingo hall, a fine dining restaurant and bar, and an all-you-can-eat buffet. Plans also may include a 14,000-square-foot bowling alley and billiards room.

"We are working closely with the City in creating a facility that will have a real warm and friendly local hometown feel," stated Tribal Chairman Darrell Mike. "Local residents can meet their friends, grab a bite to eat, enjoy great entertainment, and drive home in just a few short minutes."
Chairman Mike added, "We are at the beginning stages and will work with the community to design and build something that will truly benefit the residents of the region while keeping monies local to boost the local economy."
Phase 1 of the project will include a top-of-the-line RV park offering more than 100 RV, tent and cabins sites, along with a number of excellent amenities. The park will be managed by the Tribe through a franchise agreement with Kampgrounds of America (KOA), the leading campground management company in the nation.
The RV site will have full amenities including a pump-out station to ensure environmental safety at all times. The Tribe plans to offer the pump-out services generally to park visitors who may not be able to choose to stay at the new KOA campground.
The casino-resort and RV park will generate hundreds of new jobs, with many dozens needed for the construction phase. The casino alone will generate millions of dollars annually in goods and services purchased from local businesses, and millions more in ancillary local economic activity. Hiring preference will be extended to residents of Twentynine Palms and the High Desert.
"The Nuwu Casino Resort & RV Park project is a good fit for the region," Chairman Mike added. "This project will deliver major long-term benefits to the local economy, and create an exciting entertainment destination that local residents have wanted for years."
