The Muscogee Nation Tribe held on Thursday a ceremonial groundbreaking to commence construction of the $69.8 million Lake Eufaula Casino and Hotel in Eufaula, Oklahoma. The casino is estimated to be completed in 17 months, with an opening date set for November 2025.

The 78,000 sq. ft. development features a 20,500 sq. ft. casino with 500 new gaming machines and Player’s Club. Additionally, the development includes a 46-room hotel standing three stories tall, a 90-seat restaurant, and a parking lot to hold more than 600 vehicles. The hotel attached will have a fitness center, premier suites, and a full-service restaurant with private dining options.

The property will boast two entrances, one directly into the casino and a separate entrance into the hotel lobby. The design includes a spacious walk-through connecting the hotel lobby to the casino and restaurant. Partners in the construction project include Connect Advisors, JCJ Architecture and Crossland Construction.

Once built, the new building will replace the Creek Nation Casino and the current employees will transition to the new building. Officials are also expecting to add 50 full-time positions with the new property. 

Muscogee Nation Gaming Enterprises CEO, Pat Crofts said: "We’ve been working on a casino at Lake Eufaula for many years. We had some delays, we had you know floods, COVID, things like that.

"This is something we’ve been working on for many many years and it’s just really heartening that we’re finally at the point where we’re breaking ground and starting on the project.” Crofts stated that he expects the casino to promote more tourism in the area and be a strong addition to the community.

“This project is not just about building a casino and hotel; it’s about creating jobs and stimulating the local economy,” said Andy Langston, COO of Muscogee Nation Gaming Enterprises.

We are dedicated to hiring and training local residents, providing them with valuable skills and opportunities for career advancement. We believe this development will become a cornerstone of the community, attracting visitors and fostering a sense of pride among residents.”
