Elwha River Casino Begins Expansion Project

PORT ANGELES, WA (February 18, 2022) — The Lower Elwha Klallam Tribe is excited to announce the expansion of Elwha River Casino. The existing 10,000 square foot property originally opened in March 2009 and the 12,130 square foot expansion will be added to the existing casino building, increasing the property’s Class II Gaming count to 300 total gaming terminals.

The new additions will include more gaming floor space with a new dining and bar experience. The River’s Edge Bar & Lounge will be relaunching with a new menu, alcohol service, larger dining room, outdoor seating, and a live entertainment area. Woodstone, Inc. will provide the construction management oversight, while Bergman Walls and Associates and the owner worked together to provide the architectural design and concepts to bring the project to fruition. The expansion of the casino will also add an estimated 15 to 20 new job positions.

Construction for the project is scheduled to begin with a groundbreaking ceremony on March 2, 2022 with an estimated completion in early 2023. For more information, please follow Elwha River Casino on social media sites or visit their website at www.elwharivercasino.com.
